Four weeks into a broken arm, and holding steady. I'll take this as a win as the only exercise I can do is walking and holding down the couch. The good thing about a broken arm is that it seems like every person I meet has a story about someone who broke an arm!  Great way to connect with strangers

Well, that drop was a surprise. My weigh-in yesterday was 180 from my normal weigh-in: clothed, instead of naked; evening instead of first thing in the morning; miserably bloated instead of post-fast.

Fast day, today. The hardest part is the mental chaff that seems to be part of gearing up for the day. It's mentally taxing to keep the 'starving' lizard brain under control.

Came down with something, was sick for several days. On the way back out of it now, getting back on the bike, etc. Last year I was 180.2 on the same day, so I seem to be keeping the gain/regain to a minimum so far!

Whoa!  I was not expecting that.

I fully expect to bounce back up. I weighed myself post 36-hour fast, and in ketosis. Guaranteed to regain some water the instant I eat those delicious carbohydrates. And guaranteed to gain some more water as folicularly based shenanigans begin. But still, look at that number. It exists, and I'll re-find it soon. Sssoon, precioussssss.

Happy to report another 0.4 lbs down, for a total of 5.8. Sitting at 152, and so excited to see the other side of 150 coming; it's been a while! My jeans are much more comfortable and I've got my eye on the smaller jeans that haven't been out of the closet for far too long!

It appears that 0.4 lbs is my weekly number, so now at 151.6 . . . Chisel, chisel, chisel. I don't mind if it's slow; at least it's the right direction. I'm not feeling deprived or hungry and my motivation is staying strong.

Last weekend I was exactly the same, which is always a bit disappointing (because the NUMBER ON THE SCALE!); however, I knew that I was on track and everything would be fine. And today I am down another 1.4, to 150.2. The 140s are in sight! Yessss.

The 140s are here, the 140s are here!!! From 157.8 on Apr. 8 to 148.4 today - my delight is real. :) It's been a few years since I've been below 150, I think.

I didn't go to my official WW weigh-in this morning, but my home scale says 145ish... I've met my goal for this, but since I'm not feeling deprived and the program is working well, I'm going stay the course and see if I can shave off 2-3 more pounds by the end of the summer (which would put me at the 10% target of this thread). I'm able to wear just about anything in my closet again:)
