I don't really know why that is. I still hope to make that goal of 279 by July, and it is looking good so far. Today when I plugged my weight in at Sparkpeople it told me I should adjust my caloric intake a bit. I have to admit, one of the sheer pleasures of being obese is that you are allowed to consume a LOT of calories to keep your lively shape. Right now there are days where I feel like I can't possibly eat all my calories, and days where I feel like I could open my mouth and funnel the entire kitchen right into it.
