This is not a tough diet but but no candy, cookies, pastry, snacks. I stop eating after dinner and my desert might be sugar free jello or an 80 calorie yogurt. I would be a total food bore at a party.
This is me. These are my downfall.

But all in all, things are going pretty well. At 165 this morning, a pound above my goal weight.

Weight popped up last week a couple pounds with vacation last week and a lack of exercise due to my strained hamstring. So, I'm experimenting with skipping breakfast this morning. I gotta say it isn't easy, but I intend to try it at least 2-3 days a week then maybe try to make it the norm.

back to my stable ~147.5 lbs. However - my composition is different, smaller legs, a little more upper body mass (fat and muscle) as I've been preparing for my backpacking trip. I did more jogging then backpack loaded stairs yesterday and was only sore towards then end and shortly after; I think I'm fairly conditioned and prepared for my trip now in two weekends.

When I have big aerobic capacity from high CTL on the bike, it's my hamstrings that feel mostly big. Like my thighs have the same width and apparent bulk, but the back of my legs just feel so full and thick. It's a good feeling. It will be close to 3 months before they feel this way again.
