Postponed freshman fifteen


in Daily updates

Over the course of the term since September, I have noticed myself progressively gaining weight and am now at the point that I am the heaviest I can recall being at around 200 lbs. This was happening at the same time as I was doing Judo twice a week, but I suspect only a fairly small fraction of the weight gain is from muscle. In fact, I suspect excess weight may be contributing to my apparent tendency to get injured infrequently often during class.

I have generally found 185 lbs to be a manageable, though not ideal, weight. I am going to try to trend back toward that level despite continuing with Judo in January, and will hopefully stop popping buttons off my MEC cargo trousers.

I think this approach worked pretty well last time, though I think the specific web-based software I used is no longer available.

Having a way to smooth the moving average is extremely important to the psychological effectiveness of the technique.

This shows weight data from November 2016 to today:

My current BMI is 24.57, barely in the “healthy” range. WolframAlpha says my ideal weight is 168 lbs.
