The "Free Lunch" Weight Loss Plan v.023

Click to enlarge.

I went 13 straight days at 211. I made an attempt to hold the line once 210 was breached. Some might argue that the seasonal peak is in. Others might argue that my girlfriend made a batch of brownies a few days ago though and they are all gone now. You'll see that damage in May's chart. Oops. :)

I'm not at all worried about the long-term trend. That's all that really matters to me. I'm confident it is still down, especially if this is factored in. Further, hiking season is officially here. I intend to do some this weekend. The weather is predicted to be fantastic.

No joke.

I'll try to post an exponential trend failure chart within the next few days. I think there's some pent-up demand. ;)

Are you certain that you haven't just done so?

I was certainly well "Fed" this winter, lol. Sigh.

I was roughly this far above the trend line last spring too. Doesn't prove that it's just seasonal variation though. So no, I'm not certain.

We'll see how I do this summer. I better start seeing the weight come back off soon.

In any event, I continue to climb 20+ flights of extra stairs everyday. That's definitely a permanent habit.

Brownies? She doesn't fight fair!

Sarcasm is generally a pretty good defense mechanism in my opinion, but even that can't counter a brownie attack it would seem.

The good news is that the brownie attack eventually fizzled once the ammunition ran out. Sure, there is a lot more brownie mix in the house (hoarder). It's just not much of a threat in its current state! ;)

Just got back on the scale after 3 weeks of house-sitting in LA & Santa Cruz.

189.5, +10 from end of March, LOL

Should get back to 180 by the end of this month.

I feel your pain. ;)

I blame my friend's 120" projection system.

It only works after nightfall, so I made popcorn every night for two weeks, LOL.

And not that microwave crap. A healthy splash of safflower oil + two tablespoons of butter, tons of salt, and maybe 1/3 cup of popping corn on the stove.

Sooo good, especially with an IBC Root Beer.
