Weight Watchers

Another week on the diet plan, and I went slightly over quota (227 points rather than 225), but I figured this wouldn't be a major problem. I then did the weigh-in this morning, and I'm exactly the same as last week, which is a bit surprising. Not disastrous, but odd. Mind you, I think that my body fat percentage has dropped a bit; I don't track it on the website, but from memory it was 23.4% last week vs 22.2% today, so that could be encouraging (e.g. if I've replaced fat with an equal mass of water/muscle).

One complication to the whole thing is that the changes are too gradual for me to notice directly. That applies to weight gain as well as weight loss, which is why I've tended to get caught by surprise in the past when I suddenly realise how podgy I've got. One of my colleagues said earlier that I'm looking thinner every day, although I'm now wondering whether this was actually meant as a compliment/encouragement, since billyabbott described me as "gaunt" last summer.

As a side note, I'm starting to suspect that Ryvita has a lot in common with dwarf-bread - either it lasts a ridiculously long time without going off, or I just can't taste the difference between fresh and stale.
