Since I started loosing weight early in November last year I’ve been averaging just over 0.6 kg/week, until late in January. All of February my weight has been stable around 83 kg, and nothing happened.
About a week into February I lost energy, and completely failed to train several days in a row at one point. I thought I had a virus in my body or something, but it didn’t really feel like it. Then one night I had the sudden intuition that I simply needed more energy. So I started eating, and promptly felt better. So I kept it up, without my weight changing in any way, so that was good.
Now that I’m on the other side of Thy Trail ½ Marathon I think it’s about time to get back to weight loss again. Although I probably should wait a day or 2 more, I usually need about 4 days to recover from a ½ marathon.
But I do need to loose more weight, I’m not under 80 kg yet, and I don’t have six-pack either. The latter probably won’t happen, to be honest, but would definitely be nice to have.
And perhaps 0.6 kg/week is a bit too much for long term weight loss. I think I’ll target 0.5 kg/week or less, to avoid that low energy situation again.
