Weight Loss Update

Scale and tape measure

After last week’s positive weight loss update report I’m disappointed to say this week was not very good. I’m not exactly sure why I put weight on, so I’ll be tracking what I eat every day for the next week to see if I can figure out where the excess calories are coming from. I’ve recently started eating more plant based meals during the week, but find it hard to believe that they are the source of the extra calories. The food journal should reveal the truth by weeks end. Either that or last week’s drop was a fluke (loss of fluids?) and this past week I just maintained. Not really sure at the moment, but I do know how to figure it out.

Totals to date are

Weight (lbs) -22 1/2
Stomach (in) -5
Waist (in) -3 1/2
Neck (in) -1 1/2

The Rules

Weight and measurement taken Saturday morning right after I get up. Stomach is measured around my belly, right at the belly button. Waist, where I normally where pants and neck where a dress shirt collar would be. All measurements are rounded down to the nearest 1/2″. For belly and waist measurements, I get to suck it in as hard as I can.
