Diet update - success so far

The diet has been going great. My last weigh in on 7/21 was 232 pounds, which is down 30 pounds for this latest diet (everything on the blog) and down 45 pounds since the beginning of the year. Yay!

The tools are:
  • The math and formulas already blogged
  • A Moleskine Cahier notebook for recording every calorie.
  • A Fisher Space Pen so that I always have a pen with me for said recording.
  • A digital balance, for calculating the caloric content of foods I prepare.
  • A copy of the Calorie King book for the caloric content of prepared and unlabelled foods.

Still a ways to go, but boy do I feel a lot better about myself. Seventeen more pounds and I am technically not even overweight anymore and I will be the lightest that I have been at any point in the last 10 years or more.
