Fifty-seventh 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 have now been at a normal weight (BMI below 25) for a full year, and my weight has dropped slightly over that year.

Even though I’ve been gradually increasing the upper end of my target range, I’m still quite a bit heavier than the top of that range, hovering just below being overweight. I’d like to get my weight down to the middle of my target range (so around 159 lbs, 13.5 lbs less than I now weigh).

For June and the first half of July 2022, my bike riding averaged only 1 mile/day—a very small amount, as I’ve not even been doing the once-a-week commute to campus. I’ve only gotten on my bike for a few shopping runs (groceries, cases of La Croix water, cat litter, … ).  I’ve averaged about 7.1k steps per day, though—so some of my bicycling has been replaced by walking.  That walking has been mostly in the weekly “secret walk”  with my wife, supplemented with walks with a friend at UCSC who is trying to increase exercise.  I have not been taking photos on all the walks, so many of them have no corresponding blog post.  I’ve also been walking downtown for the farmer’s market and to Food Bin for local grocery shopping, so some of my bicycle utility trips have also been replaced by walking. (Mowing the lawn, which I need to do about every 2 weeks, also gets my step count up.)
