Food psychology and winter weight gain

For those who don't want to read my blather, here's today's movie, which actually has some production values thanks to my wonderful son Jack, who produced this for the Men's Health video channel!
Now, the blather:
Yesterday's practice, it turns out, was different than I thought because I misread the date. We actually do the 1650 "race" on Friday. Yesterday, we did instead:
10 x 100 on 1:25 warm up
20 x 50 on :40
10 x 50 on :35
10 x 50 on :40
6 x 50 on :35
7 x 100 on 1:25 cool down
This was not easy, in fact, I still feel like there is food tickling my epiglottis, trying to escape.
Anyhoo, it got me to thinking that before Friday's 1650 in-practice race, it would really help if I could lose a smidgen of the winter weight gain that has crept up. Today is Tuesday 10:30 a.m.. Goal: 17 lb. weight loss by Friday 6:30 p.m.
Tip: break this down into manageable units. To wit, if I can just lose .21 lb. per hour between now and then, I will achieve my goal.
Today's vlog is a video I made for Men's Health with the considerable help of my son Jack. It was based on an article on Food Psychology I wrote a year or two back. If any of you would like to read the article itself, feel free to send me your email and I will dispatch a copy of this in .pdf form.

Please also send me a jpg file of you in a swimming suit for my "calendar" project, which may end up being a movie instead.
