Forty-first weight progress report

This post is yet another weight progress report, continuing the previous one, part of a long series since I started in January 2015.

I am very slightly ahead of where I was a year ago (about 14 days further along the weight-loss curve).

The overall pattern shows a lot of similarity between the last two years—weight loss while I’m working followed by weight gain during the summer and fall.

I’m hoping that the first quarter of 2020 will again result in a loss of 10 pounds, taking me down to about 160 pounds, though I’d be happier with 158 pounds, and would settle for 162 pounds, if I could stay there.

I’m biking up to campus 5 days a week this quarter and I averaged 5.13 miles/day in January.  My walking is up a little: my Verily study watch from Project Baseline reports 240k steps for January (about 7,700/day) from about 130k  (4,000/day) in December.  I’m not walking long distances (downtown and back once a week for dinner), but I’m on my feet a lot in lecture and lab for about 11 hours a week, which seems to add up.  The stupid interface that Project Baseline provides does not give me much access to my data—I can’t tell when during the day I’m getting the steps, nor can I see how Jan 2020 compares with Jan 2019.

I don’t have time to get to the gym, so I got myself an exercise mat and some resistance bands, so I can at least pretend that I’m trying to maintain some strength in my upper body.  I’ve not been using either very much, which is pretty much what I expected.  I’ve always hated to exercise, and nearly always find something more “important” to do.
