I don't blog much 

my mostly liquid diet continued

Posted in Personal by Will on Sunday, May 29th, 2011 ~ 2pm

So with my 5/29 weight of 145.9 — only a pound away from what I consider acceptable (145), you may wonder what are my plans, what is my intent, what is my goal for this weight loss?

Well first of all, I feel I should continue with diet in the sense of continuing to eat liquid shake drinks and one solid meal per day. It seems like a sensible way to avoid over-indulgence.

But what weight am I aiming for?

I believe I am aiming for 140.

I could see trying to maintain a weight just under 140, but, I am skeptical that I — with my current post-40s metabolism — could really exist at 138 without my body rebelling and demanding that I pack on and keep on a few pounds to keep me closer to 145.

When I was in my 20s, I was 130. 135 in my 30s. It was a change in metabolism, I presume, which one day made me lift off from 135 into weights I had never been at before.

145 might not be something to fight. But if I find I can reach 140 with ease, then 140 is what I will aim for.

On a purely aesthetic note, I don’t like the way that the bottom of my belly indents at the belt-line when naked. I’d like the line from my belly button to my beltline to be smooth, not a hillside meeting a plain. Fortunately some of that “hillside” is already notably smaller now that I’ve lost either 5 pounds or 10 pounds, depending on where I start to count from.

Pics to follow once I’m more of what I want.

    The timing is bad, no doubt. And July 4th comes up next.

    Stick to watermelon and you should do ok!
