I am below my goal now. I am reassessing my goals.
Weight: If you look at figure 1. I lost 5.4 pounds this week. I do not think the weight gain was real. Some of the weights were a different scale (2-2.5 lbs). A lot of the rest was losing the water weight rorm my vacation. I has a lot of salty foods and their are other effects of flying that tend to cause weight gain. I am setting a new goal of 199 pounds. I made an appointment for the Bod-Pod and to have metabolic testing to see how many calorie I should have. I will post them on the blog when I get them.
Nutrition: Figure 2 shows my typical diet and this is what I ate today. I have reduced my simple sugars and how have yogurt based deserts. I plan to add some protein but in general, I am very happy with my satiety and current diet. My only concern is if it is maintainable.
Exercise: I continue to do mostly cardiovascular exercise. I need to add resistance training which will happen on 22 October after the PT test.
Why did I chose 199 as a goal? That is based in part on S. M. A. R. T. and realistic goals, but it is also based on BMI and a health weight. It is a good short them goal while a reassess how to improve my body composition with the wellness center.
