Holding Steady ... Mostly

I've mostly been drinking coffee.  Up and down, but so far no more than 3 days without coffee and more coffee days than not.  Today was 179.6.  It was 108.2 when I woke up.  I went for a morning walk to get down to the lower number, and since it was a travel day (read 10 hour drive), I allowed the mild bend in the rules.  It's 10 PM now, and I'm 179.8 as I go to bed, so I'll be drinking coffee tomorrow.

Did lots of reading about BMI this week.  Getting interested in the 174 number since then I would technically be "normal weight".  Despite temptations, I make no formal claim on this number as I want to consolidate before moving down.It might be nice to reach 180 consistently before bedtime (like tonight) as a nice interim goal.

Coffee Crisis Resolved

Actually, I made 180 a week ago Friday (June 29?).  The real story is that I've made weight every day since then while going to a family reunion and being on vacation.  Still walking, though not as much.

My plan is to try to hold this weight for 6 months or so and then knock off another 5.  I'm still overweight, by any standard, but in a much more reasonable place.
