Default Day 4, August 16, Another few pounds gone.

August 16, 2012
Day 4, 246/239/200

Just got on my scale now (we are waking early for a trip to go to my uncle's memorial in Hawaii) and found that I had lost a few more pounds. So, on Day 4 I weigh 239.

Certainly almost all of it is water, but that is good to get off me -- e.g., with hypertension, etc.

I have my numbers on my watch band to remind me that I am on my program, and the strips now say "4" and the strip below it says "7/239." So I will have a chance to look at them all day -- still I will probably see them fewer times than I will look at advertisements for food, drink, etc. However, seeing them will definitely help me even things out.

I won't have a chance to exercise this morning as we are leaving home about 6:45 a.m.

I will have coffee for breakfast and for lunch. No need to eat unnecessarily on the plane. I sure have consumed enough to last a life-time (or at least for several months). Every day I am good on my program is a day of victory over the influences which have led me to over-eat, over-do it in the past.. (I sure am more susceptible to such influences than most people, it seems.. But not now and not in the next 96 days.)

Again I feel great this morning -- not enough sleep with leaving early, with the sleeplessness that dieting initially brings about, but I feel GREAT!

I hope everyone has a program that will work well enough to make them healthier! That we can be "good enough for long enough" to make a big impact on our health!

A reminder - Dr Atkins used to say the single most predictable outcome
of low carbing is lower blood pressure. It's even more predictable than
weight loss.

When you do fall off your extreme plan later this year please consider a
low carb plan. Because you'll have lost a lot of weight you won't need
one tuned for loss so one of the portion systems will work. I suggest
Carbohydrate Addicts Diet by Dry Heller. There are now several books in
their series. For folks with weight to lose it works well and slowly
(which history shows is better for keeping it off). For folks who want
to maintain without hunger it works because it's a very simple system
based on relative portions and a maximum time per meal. Plus as it's
low carb the blood pressure benefits are there.
