Final weigh in on Mike Teehan's Holiday Excursion. I started at 218 on October 21, 2011 and ended at 212.0 December. Total loss on Excursion 6 pounds. Well, at least it's a loss
This week lost 0 -- up 1.5 from SAD Christmas dinner excursion
Oct. 21, 2011 = 218
Oct. 28, 2011 = 218
Nov. 04, 2011 = 215
Nov. 11, 2011 = 214.0
Nov. 26, 2011 = 214.5
Dec. 02, 2011 = 212.0
Dec. 09, 2011 = 213
Dec. 16, 2011 = 210.5
Dec. 22, 2011 = 210.5
Dec. 29, 2011 = 212.0
Funny thing is I was at 216.5 on Nov. 1, 2001 got down to 208.5 until Christmas Week and Christmas Day of SAD food got me right back to 216.5 on December 26 th.
So, essentially of the 6 pounds lost I had to re-loose 4.5 of it in the last week. But without SAD food it would have been 9.5 pounds or maybe more, which would have been not good, but at least a consistent loss.
I learned valuable lessons on the Excursion; because of the the Daily Food Log I now know what menus will get me steady weight loss and I know that anything with beans, likely has to be carefully monitored not to go over that one cup a day rule. I also learned that I really am terribly gluten, lactose and soy intolerant, because after eating Christmas Day SAD food with abandon, it has taken me 5 days to get close to normal again. I won't be going there again EVER!
So Happy New Year to Everyone. I hope it's a year full of peace, hope, love and joy for everyone -- not to forget health, but if we are here I don't have to hope for that one so much. Best to you all in 2012!My Weight Chart:
