Today: 304.6
down 14.9 lbs from my highest weight of 319.5 on November 25, 2016
down 14.4 lbs from my starting weight of 319 on July 1, 2014
average lost: 0.11 lbs/week
next milestone: 303 lbs (5% loss)

The good news is that I regained less than half a pound, but that's still utter nonsense. Good diet, consistent exercise, and no holiday splurgery this week, but it goes up. What's that about?

Oh well. Nothing to do but keep on keeping on. [personal profile] laurie_robey says I am visibly slimming down, so my best guess is that this is just a blip and hopefully next week will show more progress. I seem to recall last time I started getting into this pattern of "up, down, down," as well, so maybe this just means the initial spurt is done and now I'm in the long haul part.

can't stop being a scientist.
Muscle weighs more than Fat, and you're being active, what's got you upset as a raw number may not reflect a shrinking waistline. I would honestly consider a few metrics like waist and chest measurements to accompany your data tracking and analysis. Don't need to publish them if you don't want, but it may give you a more complete picture to base your progress on.

Re: can't stop being a scientist.
I'm really more interested in trends than single data points anyhow. My previous successes had a recurring "up, down, down, up, down, down" pattern and it wouldn't surprise me if that's just how my body operates on the long term.

Yer gonna have to start measuring your specific gravity rather than just weight. Its much more accurate. And annoyingly impractical.

My displacement in tonnes, perhaps.
