This morning’s weigh-in was pretty spectacular: 168.0 lbs. That’s a new low for me, and just three pounds away from hitting my final goal! I’m thinking that I should be able to get there by the end of this month.
What got my weight loss started again? Sleep, I think. Now that I get at least 8 hours a night, the weight loss has started back up. I also cut out desserts for a while and I haven’t had a whole sweet potato in a few weeks, but I think that it has more to do with sleep than anything else. Sherry made an amazing chocolate orange tort that I had after dinner this week almost every night, and I still lost weight. So… sleep, it is!
Since cutting out the sweet potato, desserts, and getting more sleep each night, I’ve lost a good 7 lbs within the past month or so. When I look back on my 10 lbs/month weight loss rate and compare it against the months I didn’t lose any weight, the only real difference was the lack of sleep. If I keep this up, I should be below my goal soon.
Three more pounds. Three more. It’s so close…
