This last few pounds is proving more difficult to get rid of. Factors involved :~ A 'Wolf like appetite' has undermined my determination to eat less/better. Have binged on choc/cakes/cream et al. No wonder I'm not losing any weight. Also I'm going to blame the current 'Heatwave' for discouraging me from running as much/far. After several weeks of fairly rigid self discipline I felt like having a break ~ & took it. What else can I think of........? Perhaps I can cite my advanced years/natural sloth etc? My wife cooks meals that are too tempting & I don't like leaving an empty plate. So, not having more days left I'm going to try to drag up some willpower & deny myself all that is too much for a 'normal' person's needs. I rate my chances of attaining my goal weight in the remaining days at about 50/50. Perhaps I'm too optimistic? Meanwhile my mood's continued to be excellent. Rain's forecast for tomorrow, I'll run then. Exercise does inhibit excess hunger ~ homeostasis is restored & I'll lose more flab. It will be an achievement & I'll feel good. If I should fail I'll have more excuses ready.
