I don't need to diet--am probably underweight--but I try to periodically dial it back on the caffeine.  Currently at two cups of tea per day.

I am at 208 at this time.  Lowest I have been in a while, as I was hovering about 10 pounds more for some time.

I quit caffeine about 18 months ago, primarily for the sake of my teeth (I don't appreciate hot beverages so it was soda), as I also find root canals unentertaining. I'd periodically quit before and so withdrawal was the usual bother, even with cutting back gradually. Tiredness was less of an issue than I expected. Except for lately, but that's probably because I picked up some of the weight I dropped last year and am not sleeping as well for it. I should go to the gym.

Great!

So for the last week, I've cut down to a single Mountain Dew a day at lunch and water for every other meal.

Huh, looks like I've been able to keep this up for 3 months.

Returned home from my travels( diet suspended)  Monday. 213 point something pounds today. I'm interested in seeing how quickly I can get back to 200 + or - 1%.

211.8

It won't be too quickly at current activity levels. I'm not doing much beyond laundry and reading. No fresh snow to handle. It is above freezing in the afternoons, so I suppose I should be walking again. But "That which is measured improves, and that which is measured and reported improves faster." I'll return to 200.

I've lost the weight I put on between Halloween and Christmas, so that's something.

It really is.

Do you think you flipped the switch from "Store fat for the winter" to "Winter is here, time to draw on my energy reserves" ?

I hope it wasn't because of too many gall bladder attacks.

No, I think holidays plus stress related soda binge over the holidays made me gain weight.  I always gain a bit over Halloween as I am generally too busy to do dinners, so we eat out a bunch.  Then the holiday schedule is rough on most people.  But the work problems meant I was eating out at lunch specifically to avoid work as much as possible. 

Solid month of back on my eating schedule got me back in order.

I seem to be locked into the 210-212 range.

While not able to maintain the two pounds a week weight loss I hit in January, I'm fairly certain I've maintained an average calorie deficit for February. Interesting that my health motivations are very strong when I'm sick with colds/flu and vanish when symptoms do.

Just from no longer doing the Dew (as often), I'm down to ~201 as of last week.

Congrats, Lori!

As part of the dentist's orders, I've curtailed my caffeine consumption most days to one cup of green tea.
Not happy, but I'll live.
