Wait, stop the presses!

I just realized that if you take my loss on this push (7 lbs so far) and averaged it across the entire time period (three and a half weeks so far), I am, actually, getting a two-pounds-per-week loss on average.

This means I guess I need to take back the disparaging comments I made regarding the Mayo Clinic calling me a lazy excuse-making fatso. Perhaps they are right, and I have a normal metabolism, I just don’t like the fact that at my age I have to work THIS hard to see only THIS much loss. Which is slower than what I used to see when I was a younger person. I mean, I’m working really hard! But also over the entire period I’m getting exactly the rate of loss I should expect. Jeez now I feel dumb about my last post. I can’t math today! Or rather, it took me a while to take a longer view than just one week’s results.

Dammit. I need more data. See you next Tuesday, BMR…and every week after that.

    Your disparaging comments made me laugh out loud. 🙂 I think you’re doing great with all of it.

    I had to laugh at the comments you made about age! I lost a little over 100 pounds when I was 60 and maintained it. Last summer I decided to lose the last 125 pounds or so and I have about 30 more to go. No surgery, no drugs, no special foods. I’m 66 years old. It’s hard. It’s D*MM hard! But it’s worth it. My diabetes is in remission. My cholesterol numbers are excellent. My blood pressure is normal. All without pills. The hardest part for me is believing I could do it. I’m thrilled I found your blog. Thank you!
