Forty-second 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.

On a long time scale, this past year looks a lot like the year before, with a steady weight gain while I’m home and a fairly rapid drop when I’m working.

Looking in more detail at the daily weight, I can see that I am about 3–4 pounds heavier than the same time last year, though I started the year slightly lighter than the year earlier. I’m losing weight more slowly this year than last.

I’m still hoping that the first quarter of 2020 will again result in a loss of 10 pounds, taking me down to about 160 pounds, but this is beginning to look less likely, as I seem to have plateaued.  Part of the problem is snacking and eating lunch when I’m grading—I get more calories and less exercise when I’m spending 6–8 hours a day grading.

I’m biking up to campus 5 days a week this quarter and I averaged 4.83 miles/day in February, down from 5.13 miles/day in January.  My walking is also down: my Verily study watch from Project Baseline reports 190k steps for February (about 6600/day) down from 240k steps for January (about 7700/day). As I predicted, I have almost never used my exercise mat and resistance bands, so I’m probably losing upper-body strength (which I’ve never had that much of to begin with).
