A new milestone – in the 160s!

Sorry for a new milestone report so soon after my last one, but this is a major one for me. For the first time in my adult life I’m in the 160s! My weight this morning was 169.8 lb = exactly 77 kg.

I’ve lost a total of exactly 52 kg = 114.6 lb.

I’m technically just 1.6 kg = 3.5 lb from a “normal BMI.” Though my stomach still sticks out some. So I’ll probably need to lose more over time.

I’m eating whole food plant based (no intermittent fasting), and logging calories in and out in MyFitnessPal (streak day 2,865). My cholesterol, blood sugar, blood pressure, triglycerides, and all blood tests are normal.

Milestone report – lost 40% of my weight!

I love milestone reports, and will use just about any excuse to post one. 🙂

Today (MyFitnessPal streak day 2,863) I’m down exactly 40% from my original weight.

I’ve lost 51.6 kg = 113.8 lb and now weigh 77.4 kg = 170.6 lb (so hopefully a new milestone report coming soon).

I’m technically just 2 kg = 4.4 lb from a “normal BMI.” Though my stomach still sticks out some. So I’ll probably need to lose more over time.

This is my lowest weight in my entire adult life. The weight loss rate is extremely slow, but time is passing anyway, and I’m not in a rush.

Pao, Sakura starting to bloom, Sky Tree along the Nakagawa

During this morning’s walk. The weather was chilly but beautiful. During the same course in the afternoon, Pao ate a snack from the hands of a two year old who thought it was funny. He’s very gentle with little kids. He also ran after a ball that a little boy kicked and they both thought it was amusing.

Pao’s curious about passersby on the road by the river sidwalk.
More sakura are blooming each morning. Maybe they’ll be in full bloom in another 10 days or so – a record early bloom for Tokyo.
Pao likes climbing the steps to decks that are along the river.

Leaving the deck, with the Sky Tree in the distance and beautiful reflections in the river.

We walked by the Nakagawa this morning. Just some photos to share.

The cherry blossoms have started to bloom.
This is actually from yesterday. Pao sees the river for the first time.
Pao is mastering steps now.
Happily skipping along.
Just a nice portrait of Pao by the riverside walk.
At the park on the way home – Pao discovers water faucets.
