Well, I lost a couple pounds this week which was nice considering I didn't lose any last week. Dr. Rothfeld prescribed a couple of suppliments to try while we wait for the blood work to come back and I haven't been able to figure out if they've been doing any good. I feel like I'm taking a big chance discussing my weight on a blog. My experience is that as soon as I bring up my weight, people feel like it is then okay to lecture me about how I should go about losing weight. I've got news for you. Fat people know all about dieting, everything. If it's been in the mainstream media, we've heard about it and tried it. Unfortunately, no one believes this because, if we have all this knowledge, why would we still be fat? And, if we do have this knowledge, we must be lying about what we've tried because, you know, fat people do that....
Wow, I didn't set out to write a rant today. I guess, what I'm saying, is that I'd like to be able to discuss my weight here without being subjected to a lot of well meaning advice on the subject. I've spent a lot of years figuring out what doesn't work for me and now I've finally, FINALLY, got a doctor who's willing to work with me on it instead of offering me the same old tired advice and then blaming me when it doesn't work.
So, I'm not looking for weight loss advice even though I know people give it with love. I'd just like to share what I'm going through and what I'm learning about my body.
That said, here's the stats this week:
Number of miles cycled: about 97
Average calorie intake per day (according to my Fit Day program): 2022
Suppliments I'm using: Metagenics Ultra Inflamex for inflamation (also doubles as a multivitamin), Crave Arrest for hunger and Omega 3 fatty acids for whatever it is they do.
Weight lost this week: 3 lbs.
Current weight: 269 lbs. (122 kg)
Weeks until the MS Ride: 4
Overall feeling of wellnes: Pretty good. The Caveman Diet definitely agrees with me. I'm less tired and achy than when I started it and my knees feel real good.
