Pokémon Crystal: Nuzlocke Challenge #00 - Look what I found!

Oh hey, look what I found! All this started when I was sorting through some boxes to rearrange the storage in both my home office and bedroom. During this shuffle, I found my Nintendo 64 transfer pack with a copy of Pokémon Crystal in it.

Weight Log: 23 - Nothing Significant to Report

Latest recorded weight: 180.7 kg - 398.4 lb - 28 stone and 6.4 lb - BMI: 55.8 Not sure what to say? I didn’t change anything and nothing changed. Kind of as expected.

I had been experimenting with a CBD supplement to suppress appetite but due to cost that’s going to stop.

Weight Log: 22 - Definition of Insanity

Latest recorded weight: 182.8 kg - 403 lb - 28 stone and 11 lb - BMI: 56.4 Back to where I was a month ago? This makes no sense but okay… So while I’m once again up and back to the weight I was not only from 4 weeks ago but also when I started this, I measured myself yesterday and have lost 4 inches off my belly. Yet I’m the same weight?
