I wasn't strong when I didn't limit my food. Now that I'm limiting my intake and can't be on the bike - even a trainer says the Doc, I'm even worse off

About the only thing going well for me this year is my weight. Not where I want to be but I am much closer than I've been able to consistently be for many years.

Down to only needing to lose 20 to 30 lbs. In reality 10 *MIGHT* happen. 30 lbs?... better chances of seeing those flying swine.

I've been snacking too much. 1.6# above race weight. Good thing Sunday's crit (late season race recently added to our calendar) is flat.

I bumped up three pounds in two days. So glad I'm female.

Still too heavy. A significant percentage more than last season.

185 (RW-3). I look like a climber, which makes it hard to explain when I get dropped on climbs.

... anyway, 153.5, on the way from 155 to hopefully 145 (5'9). Targeting 500 cal/day deficit but it's very hard to gauge because we don't eat a lot of packaged food. How many calories in a half cup of fava bean horseradish salad with olive oil?

Probably overdoing it on the deficit though because yesterday I had the most epic bonk of my life. I felt like I was tripping.

6 weeks of deprivation and suffering got me from 155 to 151. A week of vacation debauchery: back to 155.

Yesterday morning: 154. Then I raced an hour, drank literally gallons of water, and consumed about 50 million calories at Peter Luger. This morning: 152.5. All the steak is still in there, too, if you know what I mean.

I think that's the hardest part of losing weight, the lack of any meaningful short-term indicator of success.

I try to focus on the longer term trends, and don't consider myself to be at a weight unless I bounce up and down around it over the course of a few days.

After two days of racing, without lunch on either day, I was at 179 this morning. I think the last time I was that low was high school. Loving it.
