70.0 November 14, 2006Posted by dorigo in food, personal.
I admit it: I am slightly obsessed with watching my weight. My explanation for that is that I was overweight for twenty years, and I had resigned to the idea that losing those five to eight excess kilograms was simply not possible. But then I learned how to do it, and gradually became able to control extremely well my body mass.
After three diets, the major one which allowed me to lose 10kg and get in shape, and two more “control” ones, I think I master it. I know how to lose 100 grams a day without too much effort. It gives me a warm feeling to know I can do it whenever I want.
So when, after the QCHS7 conference in the Azores, I came back to my scale and found out I was 76.5kg, I decided I would go back to 70 in a little more than two months (6.5 kg/100 grams is 65 days: from September 10th to November 14th).
It’s November 14th, and my scale gave me the pleasure to read 70.0 this morning… Now a little more effort (I decided I will need to stay below 70 for three consecutive days before I call it off), and I can go back to a normal regime.
