The day has finally come when I didn’t see weight loss on the scale. I was wondering when it would rear its ugly head, but today was the day. This is usually the time when I give up on whatever fad diet I think is good for me and go back to my regular eating style. Obviously, that’s not an option this time. The scale showed 231.8 this morning again, same as yesterday. At least it’s not a gain.
Today was also a somewhat special day (yes, that means I cheated) because my parents came over to celebrate my birthday. I had beer and wine, but the calories didn’t add up too much due to my decreased appetite. Here’s what I had today:
- Fried eggs (3)
- Bacon fat (1 tsp)
- Smoked salmon (50g)
- Mary’s Gone Crackers Original (13 crackers)
- Romanoff lumpfish roe (2 tsp)
- Anchovies (4 fillets)
- Moosehead lager (12 oz)
- Butternut squash soup (1 cup)
- Mixed salad (3 cups)
- Roasted chicken with skin (wing + 3oz white meat + drippings)
- Shiraz wine (1 cup)
- Astro BioBest yogurt (3/4 cup)
- Strawberries (1/2 cup)
- Mango (1/2 fruit)
- Sunflower seeds (1/2 cup)
Total calorie count was about 1900 which is just within the range of sustained weight loss for a person of my weight. We’ll see what the scale says tomorrow.
On an even more positive note, I’ve convinced my wife that bacon fat is not radioactive and that it is, in fact, edible.
