Weight loss science revisited
A pound of body fat represents about 3500 calories of excess food energy consumed. Therefore, in order to lose 1 lb., you have to consume less food energy than you spend. Therefore, a daily deficit of 500 calories translates to 1# weight loss per week. A sedentary man of my age, height and weight burns about 2100 cal/day just being alive. Therefore if I limit my intake to 1600 cal/day, I'll lose 1#/week. The rule of thumb for safe weight loss is 2# per week, i.e. a deficit of 1000 cal/day. That means limiting my calorie intake to 1100/day. If you're accustomed to emotional snacking and judging a meal substandard unless you "feel full", that's going to be a tough limit to work with. If, like me, you tend to not do breakfast and then pig out at lunchtime on a Wendy's Dave's Double (810 cal) and a side of 6pc chx nuggets (250 cal), then you're pretty much setting yourself up to fail with the first thing you put in your mouth at suppertime.

The standard disclaimer is ACH transfer from brokerage to checking can take up to 3 days, but I initiated the transfer yesterday morning and it cleared overnight so that's good.

Back in March? April? I bought SRET at 14.27ish/share, and cashed out Tue at 15.57/share, = 9.09% growth in under 6 months. (Plus monthly dividends.) Miss was beating herself up, but I promised and expected that I would have her back financially while we get ourselves re-established on high ground. I could have just left $856.33 sitting in savings or checking, losing ground to inflation from April to now, but this way instead I was able to pull out $934.20. It was in brokerage because it's not retirement savings or OMFG-level emergency funds represented by my CD account. I feel fine and dandy about how it grew and how I'm going to use it.

I had a cassette-tape copy of "Queen's Greatest Hits". Over the years as we progressed through CD and digital distro, I learned there was no universal tracklist - it mutated depending on regional radio market popularity of individual tracks. The tracklist that sounds most "right" to me is the 1981 US/Canada edition.
