For a background to this post see How I Plan to Lose 20 Pounds and Win the Bet.
Week #9 Weigh-In: -2. Total Loss: -10.
This was a good week. My plan last week was to journal the number of hours in my eating window. It worked! I was solid on my morning fasting and I lost 2 more pounds.
My goal was to average 14 hours. I hit 14.85 hours. It got easier later in the week. I will continue with this strategy. Fasting sure beats counting calories and weighing food.

- I exercised less this week due to a setback with my knee rehab. This turned out to help making morning fasting easier. Fitness “gurus” that dismiss the relationship between activity and appetite are fools.
- I had quite a few potatoes this week. Very filling. This is a lesson for all you militant low carbers. Carbs are not inherently fattening. Excess calories are.
- As far as I know I am now in the lead on the bet. Competitor #3 slipped and is back to 7#. Competitor #2 is at 5#. and Competitor #4 is still missing in action.
