Slow Carb Diet – Week… the rest.

Uploading pictures of my scale has gotten to be a useless pain in the ass, so I’m not going to do it anymore. Granted, photos of the scale are the fastest way to keep note of what I tipped every day, but the bandwidth to the blog sucks. So much so that I’ve neglected to post anything for a few weeks.

Anyhow, having not met my goal in mid January, I decided to just keep on keepin’ on since the diet isn’t that restrictive. I’m still cutting most carbs out of my diet during the week and I’m still binging on Saturdays. I’m still losing weight and fat. Keeping me straight are daily weigh-ins and bi-weekly 20 minute workouts.

Recently I went ahead and stuck all the data into a spreadsheet and whipped up some graphs. With the variability during the week, sometimes it’s hard to tell if I’m actually losing weight or not, but the graphs show the trend very clearly.

The bottom line on each graph represents the goal I set when I started┬áMy original goals were to lose 10Lbs and drop 4%(133Lbs, 16%). Edit: I’ve added the moving average here to give me a better idea where I stabilize. I list the % figure as “bioimpedance” because the scale doesn’t actually give you an accurate body fat percentage (only a reasonable guess useful for a relative measure of change).

The plan now is to just stick to the diet until I hit my goals, and then probably further still until I can see my full 6-pack abs most of the time. I don’t know how long that’ll be but it doesn’t seem too far off. Once I hit my weight/fat goals, I might switch to a muscle building plan however. I hadn’t really decided that one yet though as I think it may take more time/planning investment than just cutting things out of a diet.
