As I predicted, my weight loss hit a plateau this week. I dropped a whopping two-tenths of a pound, going from 224.8 pounds a week ago to 224.6 pounds today.
I attribute my stall to the X-factor. I don’t know what the X-factor is, which is why I call it the X-factor. According to my data, I ate significantly fewer calories per day for this last period than the one before. Percentage of calories from fat was about the same. I have no reason to think my record-keeping was any less accurate. My activity level didn’t change. So the stall is a mystery to me.
Like I said — oh well. I’ve lost close to four pounds over the past two weeks, which works out to eight pounds in a month. I’ll take that.
If the Easter Bunny shows up with any dark chocolate today, I’m going to eat it. (The chocolate, I mean — not the bunny. Rabbits are usually very lean meat.)
On the chart above, I have blanked out the numbers for polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats. As I explained last week, those numbers are not complete, thanks to the Federal law that only requires total fat, saturated fat, and trans fats to be reported on food labels.
To record my eating and weight, I’ve been employing the FitDay program that I bought a few years ago. It works well for both recording and reporting, and I’m used to it, but it isn’t geared to a LCHF (low-carb high-fat) way of eating, and is getting old. I may test out some other computer programs, mobile apps and websites. (Truth is, I like playing with such.)
