This is technically the 14th week of my new paleo life, but only my 13th weigh-in cause last week I skipped for fear of major disappointment.
But first! An update on the knee situation.
I just got back from the wellness center, and they referred me to a doctor to go have my knee X-rayed. I have an appointment to do that on Friday at 9:30. I’m not sure what they’re gonna say.
The wellness center also gave me an anti-inflammatory to take in the meantime, which I am SO excited about…
My dad is also scolding me for being stupid about my knee. This is one of the few times in my life where I’m pretty sure I deserve it. I have been stupid about it, and I fully acknowledge that. It’s time to get smart about it. I’m pretty much grounded from TKD for the rest of the year. I still go to class, and I am teaching white belts, which is satisfying in its own way. I’ll start working towards my next belt only when I’m fully healed. I’ve paid for my impatience.
Anyway, now to the fun part of the post: Weigh-in!
Last time I weighed myself, I hadn’t budged from 155. It is possible that I lost 5 pounds somewhere between then and now, but I really do feel like I’ve lost that five pounds in one week. It was literally as if I woke up the morning after my belt test and felt five pounds lighter.
Another possibility is that the bloating from my period has left me. But either way…
150 pounds! boo yeah!
I am actually half a pound from being back into a normal weight range. Hoorah! I’m really looking forward to crossing this threshold.
This is a ten-pound marker, so I will update this post (or make a new one) with measurements and pictures when I can.
So if I keep losing 2.5 lb/week, I’ll be down to 135 in 6 weeks, just two weeks after my graduation.
It’s important for me to realize that I may keep perfect paleo and still not lose 2.5 pounds per week, cause there is the plateau to think of, especially since I’m not exercising. But I’ve tried doing some things to counter that. For instance, I used to drink tea at my meals, but now I’m 100% water, so that reduces my caloric intake. I’m kinda excited about that, actually, cause it’s been a transition I’ve been trying to make for a while. I’ll post on that later.
Anyway, that’s it for me. Hooray for continued weight loss!I will update with pictures as soon as I can acquire a camera.
