What It Feels Like When I Lose Weight

One quick look at my progress and you’ll see that my weight loss is not linear (first 1/3 of the chart notwithstanding).  In fact, if you look closely enough, you’ll see that I tend to gain weight, or “spike”, right before I drop again.  This drop, or what Lyle McDonald calls a “whoosh“, has a distinct feeling that I’ll get to below. But first, a pretty graph and a few notes about how things work when I’m not losing.
