Weekly Weigh In: Week Six

Another week gone, and another pound lighter. That’s right: 179 as of this morning. Interestingly (to me, at any rate), that 1 pound came all in one day. Last Saturday I dropped from 180 to 179, and I’ve been around 179 since. Weight loss is strange, what can I say?

I know I don’t have that much more of this left in me. I’ve already begun looking at ways to game the system so that I can meet my goal and just be done with this earlier rather than later. My father’s going to be here in two weeks, so I’ve set that as my “be done by the diet by then” date. That means I’d have to lose 4 pounds in 2 weeks, which is definitely not going to happen the way I’m currently going. (It would likely take me 4 more weeks. 3 at the outside.) But I’m not above fasting for the last day just to cross the finish line. I think I can use a trick like that at the last minute, though it’ll be important that I try to toe the line and not eat like a pig too much.

Although who knows? I just got my second shot of the Moderna vaccine, and I know that gives some people some sever reactions. Maybe mine will be of the “lose 4 pounds in two weeks” variety. What are the odds? 🙂

For now, I’m just happy that the diet has continued to work. I’m down 9.8 pounds in 6 weeks, which doesn’t feel too incredibly fast to me. (Which is good. I didn’t want to just plummet down the weight, only to have it all come back the next week. That’s for the end of the diet, right?)

Onward and downward!
