Yesterday I went shopping, so this morning’s breakfast is more diverse. A brownie adds a comparatively wholesome texture, while for drinks I’ve got a mocha and a glass of chocolate milk. Takes me back to childhood, having a glass of milk with a meal.
The stomach ache of yesterday is gone, though again I feel slightly wired and have an elevated pulse.
While water hasn’t bored me as I expected, nonetheless I’ve been drinking much less. As my typical post-lunch liquids were zero-calorie soft drinks, I guess mostly I was craving sweetness rather than hydration.
By pacing myself beforehand, tonight I’ve left stomach space for dessert. Which turns into three courses. Because I can.
I’ve tracked my daily energy balance over the last six months with an app called Myfitnesspal. Each night it estimates the weight I’d be in five weeks, if I maintained that day’s eating and exercise. Tonight’s result: nine kilos heavier. That’s over a kilo a week, or more than doubling my weight within a year.
Shocking yes, but it’s all about the frame of reference. As the chart shows, my weight gain still won’t match that of a newborn human or whale. Many people consider them to be adorable, so perhaps they’ll feel the same about Tubby Banno.
