New goal:  215

  That's the way to do it!! I'm rooting for you.  I'm going to lay low (partially in shame) til I hit my first milestone of 88 kilos.
It's all good...

I hang around at 208 but I might try for a bit lower. Around the 200 area.

   Don't worry, that's just a blip. I'm almost back on track myself.  Going to do a mammoth walk tonight to help things along.  Unfortunately, my birthday is in 10 days, and I am committed to taking both my family and all my in-laws (I share my mother-in-law's b-day) out for a deluxe meal--probably buffet.  Probably $400 layout. How can I not gorge myself? ???
It's all good...

Mine, too!  Dietary misbehavior on that weekend is built into the model . . . .

October 5th?
   I'm trying to find a way to minimize the damage.  Maybe go to a seafood place...
   Just had a big salad for dinner. half a block of tofu and some sauteed pork pork sprinkled on top.  Walked for 1 hour and 45 minutes.   88KG here I come!

This morning:  220.6

My scales were a little wonky this morning, and I am going to change the batteries.  Still, I’ll go with 220.6, since it was the highest of the three readings I got, and it is more or less what I was expecting.

Così sent me both a $5 “loyalty reward,” and a complimentary birthday treat.  So my unusual lunch today was the Shanghai chicken salad, more or less calorically in line with what I should have had in a lunch I bring with me.  The birthday treat made for a small comedy of errors.  The cashier at first said I could choose items from two baskets, and I selected a 140-calorie Kind™ bar.  However, as the cashier futzed with the register’s touchscreen, it turned out that the Kind™ bars were ineligible for this promotion.  My narrowed selection was brownies or large cookies.

So I got the chocolate chunk cookie.  I cut it in half so that it would not throw my day off, reserving the other half for tomorrow . . . sometimes my discipline surprises even myself . . . .

Damn, you are just plummeting down ??? You must feel great! I'm envious. I wonder if you shed a lot of water weight... In the keto diet, when your body first runs out of carbs, you burn all the glycogens(?) which are stored around the body in water, so you piss off all this weight the first couple of weeks. It feels wonderful, and for me a lot of foot and knee pain goes away immediately and I look and feel thinner. The downsides of the water-weight loss are that any serious dietary slip and it comes back on in a hurry, and that when weight loss goes down to a more sustainable pace, it feels really frustrating.
   For me, I am at 89.3KG pretty solidly.  88 is a milestone for me, so it will feel great when I get there, but I do dither a lot at this stage >:( 
It's all good...

Well, I don't find that I am passing any more water than usual.  The waist bands do feel looser, which is great positive reinforcement.  Apart from mildly spraining my left knee a week ago (it's back to about 95% . . . not the sort of injury which justifies staying home from the office, yet I am on my feet at the office more than I ought, for speedier mending) aye, the back, knees and feet feel much better.

My challenge is . . . during the week I get into a solid, sustainable dietary rhythm, but on the weekend I am a bit blurry.  So I am trying to be sharper this weekend.  Next weekend, of course, is the birthday celebrations, and some license is in the model  8)

This morning:  220.0

So, there was (as fully expected and calmly embraced) the "birthday surge";  I came down with a cold, and by now I am nearly mended.

The report being, this morning:  219.0
