@UpDownAround: You must live very close to water. This is nice! I wish this would be the case for me. I used to live in Michigan. This is a state of a “thousand” inland lakes, besides the Great Lakes themselves. I miss those times on the water. Living on the ocean would be even better.

So since I have burned 221 calories today exercising, this gives me a target of 2521 calories. I will have consumed 2,612 calories by the end of the day. So this is an overage of only about 90 calories. Not too bad. This is due to my dessert of rich vanilla icecream with blueberry compote topped by homemade whipped cream. This is my reward for exercise. I do enjoy my exercise!

@Tucson - The closest lake of much size is about 15 miles from my house. there is a bigger one about 25 miles away, a river about 20 miles away. a different big lake about 10 miles from my office, a creek that can be paddled upstream of a dam about 2 miles from my office, a couple of sounds are about 2 hours away and the beach is 2.5 to 3 hours away. So I have a few choices.

This morning was a shocker. I weighed several times and my scale was being oddly inconsistent. But the range it kept bouncing between was 153.4 to 154.4.

My weight is 172 pounds. I will not exercise today. I am still very tired and a bit sore. This is the first time I felt this way. I must of knocked out a good exercise yesterday despite it being only about 2 miles. This evening I may walk a mile around my complex at only a moderate pace. I will see about this.

I really hope i have a good long paddle tonight. i am down to 225 calories left for today - I will eat a protein bar out on the lake that is 200. Of course, if I am out on the lake eating the protein bar, that means I am paddling. If I am not paddling, I will eat a light dinner and roll some calories to tomorrow or just write them off.

I went early and paddled 5 miles and then the weather interfered with the group paddle, but 5 miles was enough for me to make today work with nothing rolled over into tomorrow. Logged 600 calories burned.

2204 calories consumed, just 4 over the 2200 goal with the exercise.

Next weigh in on Friday morning.

Swam for 68 minutes non stop. Accepted the 479 calories for "leisurely swimming". I do swim slow.

2077 calories; pretty much right at goal.

I will weigh in the morning. Lots of sodium tonight so it will probably be higher than yesterday's 154 (which I forgot to mention is a new low).

My running monologue continues (where are you @Tucson?)...

Another surprise - I weigh 153.6 this morning; another new low. I am not sure if I am catching a couple of low spikes or if I have actually made it below 155. 150-155 is a good range for me. I might lose down to 149 as a stunt - just to take a picture of the scale and then bulk up a little to get back to 153. But I am getting ahead of myself. First I need to see if I am really trending lower or if this is just low spikes.

@UpDownAround: I am here now. I am a bit concerned about your weight loss. What is your BMI right now?

I ate over at my ex’s yesterday, so I do not have an idea of how many calories I ate. I still weigh 172. I hope my weight has stabilized. Then I can intelligently and slowly put on more weight. I want my watch to work for me in this regard. But if does not, that will be OK too. My watch would just make it easier for me. I did walk almost a mile completely uphill with my stepson. Since I have not exercised in several days, I noticed that I can not perform as well. But this will change.

I have not been going to McDonalds anymore. I have to watch my money situation. From time to time, I do go to Denny’s for their $2 pancake meal. I use butter which helps boost the calories. I picked up three prepared meals this time. Two of them are PF Chang meals, and one was Quiche Lorraine . I do like quiche. All of this is good stuff!

As the Japanese would say, “sayonara” (さよなら) for now. I will be back later today.

162 today. I’m hoping to be at 159 on Tuesday.

I have lost 8 pounds of water weight in a week before. I was feeling sick though. So maybe I was legitimately sick that time.

Today it was around 1,200.

@Tucson - BMI is 23.8 if I really am 154 (not convinced yet; only 2 weigh ins have been that low). I am really 5'7.5" even though I calculated my original goal at 5'8" which made 164 the point at which I went under 25. So anywhere in the 150s is very healthy for me.

Took my daughter to college today. Dorm move in was mid-day and ended up missing lunch and doing a fair amount of walking; about 3 miles, which I logged as 127 calories.

Consumed 1719 calories and over half of it was fish and chips for dinner at TGI Fridays. They have very few choices below 750 calories, though I could have gotten a turkey burger at about 550. Lots of breading and oil in the fish and chips.

I will weigh on Sunday.
