Another Good Month to Report
Another month and the results are in. It has now been eight months and my weight remains unchanged and quite easy to maintain. In fact, I seem to have to work as much on keeping it up as I do at keeping it down. It is really just a matter of minor ajustments to intake.
The key remains simple. Track weight changes daily and adjust daily the caloric intake. This keeps weight change from creeping up (or down) over a period of time. No fad diet, no hard to apply rules or point system.
I have learned to intuitively calculate meals when eating out or on the road and make adjustments on the fly. For the first time I really do feel like I am in control of my weight and am not, in the process, depriving myself of the joy of eating. Eating and drinking is a social activity and we should not be burdened with feeling guilty about having a good time with friends and family.
