kingkeld's Journal, 15 October 2012


When I woke up this morning, I could literally feel that I was lighter. I've had that feeling in the past, but it's been a while. I could feel a significant change, and it truly made me confortable with me weight loss reboot. I was hoping to be out of the 91 kg range, maybe even low 90.

I had no idea that I'd be 88.5! Damn! I dropped more than three kilos, almost 7 lbs, since yesterday!

Obviously, it's not all fat. But it's weight off, and it's what I want and need, whether it's fat or fluid. I want it all gone. :)

So, I will definitely take this weight loss and treasure it, and use it as a drive to move forward. It shows me that I am on the right track and that I can do this again. What a great, positive experience. I needed that.

Of course, I have to prepare myself mentally for gaining weight tomorrow. Losing 7 lbs doesn't happen every day, and I am mostl likely low on water today. I don't feel very thirsty though, which is usually a sign of this.

So, today I will simply do what I've done the last two days. Stay within RDI, and exercise.

I have been low on calories, admittedly. Just around 1350 each day. I wonder if this is what it takes for anything to happen for me? it seems super low, and I really don't want to HAVE to be there.

Last time I lost this weight, things really didn't speed down much, not until I was at 77-78 kgs. That's when it got hard to lose the rest. I exercised, ate right did what I was supposed to do, and little came off. I think I have had a total of two or three days actually under 77. Of course, that was WITH the loose skin that is now removed. Getting there should be slightly more accomplishable now, over time.

I'll be able to diet and exercise my way there, to lose the excessive fat, but of course I can't do much about the fluids that are still apparent. I can see it clearly, around my stomach and my inner thighs. I can feel it in certain spots on my hips, around the cut. It's nowhere near what it has been, but it's still there. That will simply have to disappear over time.

I'm still a little concerned with what to do in Paris next week. There will not be a good way to register my food, not unless we go for wifi hotspots. I will of course look for them, but it's just not feasable to do for a whole week. I will try to register, maybe by taking pictures of my food and then work it out later. It'll be too late to stop or cut down, but it'll give me a picture of what I ate. I guess it's a start.

Also, there will not be any focused exercise. I can't really get to do that. It's okay, I'll manage. There will be PLENTY of walking, I think. We're all gonna be fitter coming back than when we left. :)

The trick is of course to control the intake. I think I can do, if not perfect, then at least reasonable.

I feel awesome today. I really do. I feel positive about my weight, and seeing such a huge step down, tells me that it's not impossible to get back to where I'm the most comfortable.

I did a full hour on the stationary bike again this morning. 3rd day in a row. It's hard work, I think, but it gives me a lot in return. Not just the fact that I burn a LOT of calories in that hour, but also the sense of accomplishment. It feels good to do good.

Today, I'm thankful for:
- losing 7 lbs since yesterday!
- My new focus!
- Stationary bike!

Have a great week! I'll be enjoying mine without work! Woohoo! Life is good!

Fantastic onthe weight loss KK.... So pleased for you. At least you know it IS possible now. Re Paris.... I am sure you will gets lots of exercise, just looking at the sights... As for the food, you are knowledgeable enough, to know what is calorific. France doesn't go much on "fast food", so no burgers and stuff to tempt you.... One thing you will need to be careful of, is the sauces... They love 'em .... Plus of course the pastries!!! Have a great time :-)

Congrats! I think you will be getting quite a bit of exercise walking around. A good way of keeping the water weight off is watching your sodium intake--2 gms of sodium is considered a low sodium diet and what heart patients are put on. It should help with the water weight. Also, a few tips that may help you with your diet when you can't record things all the time--- 1. Use small plates if possible. 2. Split your meal with a travel partner (it will be cheaper for both of you) 3. Instead of ordering entrees, order appetizers as your meal. They have less calories and are smaller portions. 4. Make good choices--lean meats, lots of veggies, low carbs, etc. 5. No snacking between meals. Just a few ideas--use any or all of them. I like your picture taking idea. When you take the picture, take it of the amount on the plate that you are actually going to eat and not leave, so you know how to determine how much you ate. Have fun on your trip.

Wow KingKeld what a magnificent loss! Crazy! Enjoy Paris and I bet all the walking will help you stay on track. I was traveling this summer and couldn't record my food journal for about 5 weeks. Because I was active (although I felt like my eating was a bit out of control-cake oh my!) I managed to lose 10 pounds. This seems to be my pattern when I travel. Not sure why. But how lovely that you and your wife get to explore Paris. le Sigh....
