A bit of a weight stall

I’ve been hovering around 86 kg for about a month now, and feel a bit frustrated.

Overall I’ve done well. I’m down a total of 43 kg = 95 lb. And according to BMI charts I supposedly need to lose just 10.6 more kg to be out of the overweight range! Hmm… Seems achievable.

My short term goals are also modest I think. I’d be happy just getting into the 70s by the end of the year.

I’ve been examining the calories of what I’m eating more closely and, to be honest, it looks like I’ve been underestimating the calories in many of the fruits I’ve been eating. Bananas and apples are actually pretty high calorie. The calorie density of bananas in particular is really high. Almost like potatoes. Blueberries seem the safest.

So I think my next step will be cutting back on certain fruits, and more rigorously tracking the calories in fruits I do eat.

As an aside, I felt like a munchie yesterday, but I also felt lazy and didn’t want to make a big deal out of it. So I just took a carrot, washed it with my potato brush, sliced it, and nuked it for 10 minutes, and made super simple carrot chips. About 70 calories. Pretty tasty. Not really filling though if you have the munchies.

  1. Ha ha. I wouldn’t go that far. But I’ve definitely made progress since I last saw you.
