Been a while since I made some time to think.

Been weighing in at 218.6 in the morning. Not a great sign. Weigh 215.6 after bathroom shenanigans, though. Been slowly working on my diet, but also been really hungry since the 6.7-mile run to my therapist appointment back on Tuesday (was also sore up until today). Maybe it was a normal bump in weight gain due to the exercise.

We'll see. I still have the goal of being below 210 by the end of this month.

According to my calorie counting, I should be on-track for losing 1 pound a week. And to be fair, one pound a week since I started counting calories would only put me as low as 215.... Wow, been counting calories for 4 weeks. Didn't realize.

Actually, my averages over the last 4 weeks only put me at about a 80-calorie deficit per day. Which is 2240 calories burnt since the start of calorie counting, which is 0.64 pound. Which is actually pretty close to my tracked weight loss, if I trust these first-in-the-morning numbers (which I do, I think).

I just need to eat less. Simple as that.

I have some ideas on where to cut calories, as well. Just need to build the neural net habit for it. And this week I'm doing a pretty good job. The last 7 days I'm at a 500-calorie deficit per day as planned. There are certain packaged foods I like to eat that if I avoid I can keep my numbers where they need to be (I'm talking about Cliff builder's protein bars).
