It feels strange, because I just posted about breaking the 70 kg barrier 5 days ago, and getting into the 69s. There I gave lots of details, and included a before-and-after photo. So please read that post for all that.
Sometimes after hanging around at a certain weight for a number of weeks, and getting down to the next kilogram (in this case, I dropped below 70 to 69.6) I will slide through that kilogram mark. It’s happened many times before, and it happened again today, and this morning, after 5 days of consecutive losses the scale hit exactly 69.0 kg (152 lb) this morning. That means I have lost exactly 60 kg as of today! That’s 132 lb lost total.
A 60 kg lost milestone is worth mentioning I think.
Other stats of note: My current BMI is now 22.8, and I’ve lost a total of 46.5% of my initial weight.
As I mentioned in my last post I am no longer trying to lose more weight. That was the first time ever that I said that! On the other hand, I don’t want to gain weight either. I’m trying to glide into a smooth maintenance landing, but I’m being careful. I did tweak my calorie limit a bit, raising it some. But my weight loss had already slowed to a crawl, so I need to be careful.
The only things I’ll repeat from my previous post are that I eat WFPB (Whole Food Plant Based), I don’t do intermittent fasting, I log calories with MyFitnessPal, and today is MFP streak day 3,248. Please see that post for more about the WFPB people who have influenced me, recent adjustments to my diet (basically just being more careful about calorie counts), more about how much my health has improved, my philosophy about healthy dieting, and my latest before-and-after photo.
