I'm surprised at how little protein you eat. Do you find you are satisfied on such high levels of carbs?
Personally, I find my meals last me longer if they have some protein in them.

Yeah, I generally don't struggle with hunger if I eat whole plant foods. The higher volume and fiber keeps me full for hours. That's what my body understands.

The idea that meat is more filling just doesn't work for me. I can eat a large plate of chicken and be ravenous shortly after. Don't know why. I also avoid meat and saturated fat coz it drives up my cholesterol.

Feb 6:

Exercise:
>4000 steps
>Sedentary day. Unacceptable!

Food:
>1 plate rice & red beans
>2 cups strawberry/lemon juice
>1 grapefruit
>6 cups air-popped popcorn
>Ice cream & chocolate

**Need to weigh-in every 10 days at least. Last weigh-in Feb 1 (127.6), next one Monday Feb 12.
**Work on boosting exercise in the next 5 days, keep the diet tight and see if I can reach 125 by then. That would be fantastic.

Mini Challenge:
Next 5 days-Wed/Thurs/Fri/Sat/Sun
**2 hrs cardio, 20 min resistance training
**2 sessions a day
**Of late, it's been low intensity so I need to increase the intensity - If I'm not sweating, and huffing and puffing, I'm not doing it right.

Dec1: 141 lbs
Jan8: 128 lbs (-13 lbs)
Feb1: 127.6 lbs (-13.4 lbs)
Feb12: 127 lbs (-14 lbs)


>Could have done better than 0.6 lbs in 12 days! Lost most of my weight so far during the holidays in Africa than I've lost in the month and half I've been back! It's probably all the junk and sweets I've been doing, especially at work. Also realized I didn't log some fiber/granola bars I raided from the vending machine this weekend. All because I continue to refuse/fail to pack lunch for work.

>Activity has been much higher in Feb than Jan where I didn't lose much due to low activity. But also, the addition of resistance training and some residual doms could mean I'm carrying some extra water weight. It could also be cycle-related water weight. I wish!

>In the 15 days left of February, I'd like to drop to 123 lbs. That's 2 lbs/wk or 1000 cal deficit/day. Now, my calorie tracking/monitoring is of eyeball-level accuracy, essentially guesswork. I'm not going to change that... coz it ain't broke...and seems to work.

>Plus, I've lost 14 lbs in 10 weeks (1.4 lbs/wk) most of which were at low to moderate activity at best. So all else being equal, if I were to keep eating the same way, but increase activity, then 2 lbs/wk doesn't seem that unreasonable.

>Ok, pep talk over. Go lose me some weight!
