It's that time again! 45 bites seems to be about perfect for now, and figuring in that I want to have a Capital S day (almost no restricitons on bites ect....a free day) next week on April 12th , 45 bites N days/ 55 bites S days seems to still be about right for this next week. My plan includes 1 Capital S day a month. My last one was March 1st, and I havent had one in April so hope to take a Capital S day on the 12th.
I have changed my goal wieght to 147 pounds for the next 12 weeks or so. So that Changes my Maintenance Range to 1 pound lower on both ends. I am comfortable moving my goal back and forth as I please As long as I always keep my goal 150 pounds or under
My dad measured me when we went to Ohio to visit them and I am around 5 feet 6 1/2 inches, not 5 feet 6. He also measured my 11 year old son and my son is 1/16 of an inch taller than me ;) So my BMI is lower than I thought! I know, I know 1/2 inch doesnt make a huge difference but still! :)
I ordered the 1978 October Reader's Digest. There is supposed to be another article about Bite Counting in one of those old Reader's Digests! I read about it online in an old Newspaper. So hopefully the October issue is the right one.
