Rhymin’ Weekly Weigh-in: Slow ‘n steady!

Whee! Here we go with yet another weekly weigh-in, and I don’t know about you but the tension ’round here is palpable!

So I won’t keep you in suspense any longer. Ready? Here goes:

187.6

Not too shabby! Almost a pound down from last week, and that’s just fine — more than fine, in fact.

Don’t know if I’ve expounded on this before (get it? I’m a dieter — ex-pounding — anybody?)…

Um, anyway, IMHO, slow weight loss is really the way to go if you want to keep it off for the long haul!

First, the longer it takes you to lose the weight, the more likely you are to develop better eating and exercise habits which will help you maintain your loss.

Second, the less weight you’re aiming to lose per week, the more calories you can allow yourself per day. And in this long, hot summer of 2018, that means:

Heck, they’re only 40 calories each and they sure are good! (And in case you’re wondering, I don’t get free Fudgsicles for mentioning them in my blog, but I’m 100% open to the possibility of delicious, icy cold bribery!)

Anyway — ahem! Back to the slow weight loss thingy! Another thing that’s nice about taking your sweet time to drop the fat is that it gives your body more time to adjust. If you’ve got a lot of weight to lose, you’re gonna have a little bit of the “loose skin” problem no matter what, but the slower you go the less drastic it’s gonna look.

And eventually, if you stick to it, either the skin will tighten up, or science will finally find a way to convert those arm flaps to wings, and you can save on transportation costs. Either way, win-win!

That’s all I got, folks! Have a great week, and I’ll see you Friday (or thereabouts)!
