So after 96 days, I am finally consistently about 9-10kg away from my goal! That makes me very happy. If you had told me on New Years Day that I was within striking distance of meeting my target, I wouldn’t have believed it. Even a few entries ago, I was talking about how I might just miss my goal by a week or so, but at least for the moment, it seems like I can make it.
In terms of feelings, I have to say that overall I feel very good. There have only been a few times that I have felt really hungry, and a few times that I have felt dizzy, but when that has happened, I have eaten and felt better. I have eaten even if it meant that I had to eat more than my calorie budget allows because although I really respect the numbers and the data, I have to respect my body and the signals it is sending me even more.
So we’ll see how it continues. I just know that I have 9 weeks to lose 10kg in order to achieve my goal. And on some level I am plateauing at the moment (the last week I have been anywhere from 9,3kg to 9,8kg away from my goal). I am sure that I can power through it if I just keep at it. But it would also be nice to even meet my goal a bit ahead of schedule. But because 1.1kg of weight loss a week is pretty aggressive, I won’t rush it.
Wish me luck!
