December Mile Marker

The quest to reach my Marathon Weight of 180lbs continues. As expected, my weight went up last month. But it didn’t go up as much as I thought it would. My average weight for December was 184.6lbs. That was up 1.1 lbs from November. My lowest weight during the month was 181.2 lbs and my…

November Mile Marker

I had high hopes for moving the needle a little further towards my Marathon Weight.  But November pushed me further away from it.  My average weight for the month was 183.3 lbs.  Up 1.1 lbs from October. Oh well. My heaviest was 188.1 lbs and my lightest was 180.6 lbs.  What happened?  I didn’t do…

October Mile Marker

I wasn’t sure how October was going to turn out.  Weight-wise, I mean. Thanksgiving is in October in Canada.  So there was going to be some feasting. And I was donating blood later in the month.  Which meant that I was going to abstain from fasting a few days before and after.  A couple of…

September Mile Marker

Well, I’m back on track.  September was a good month.  We went to our god daughter’s wedding.  Spent some time in Montreal.  Ate lots of food…  And my average weight still went down.  There were even patches of no intermittent fasting.  It was our last vacation of the year, so we had to enjoy it. …

August Mile Marker

I knew that my average weight was going to go up in August.  I had vacation time planned and I intended to enjoy it. I was going to behave like I was on vacation. Because, let’s face it, it was my first actual vacation in almost two years. But what I wasn’t expecting was how LITTLE…

July Mile Marker

Last month I thought my Marathon Weight was within reach… So much for wishful thinking. My average weight went up last month. It was 184lbs, up 1.4lbs. Which is not a tragedy in the scheme of things. My lowest weight was 181lbs and highest was 187.2lbs. As I’ve said before, Intermittent Fasting is a back…

April Mile Marker

I finally feel like I’m getting back on track towards my Marathon Weight! My average weight for April was 186.2lbs. Down three pounds from my March average. Yay! What changed this month? I didn’t do as many multi-day fasts as I did in March or February. But I did two 41-hour fasts. One at the…

February’s Mile Marker

February proved to be a more difficult month than I expected. My February weight was 188.7lbs, which is only down 0.2lbs from January’s weight. And I had to throw in a couple of multi-day fasts to get down to that average. What happened? I had a game plan after January’s experience… but I didn’t follow…

January’s Mile Marker

My weight went up a few pounds in January. My average weight was 188.9lbs. Up from December’s 186.0lbs. There was a lot of holiday eating going past the holiday season. We didn’t have our family over like usual, so Deb and I ate more treats than usual. And a part of it was my over-reliance…
