Weight Tracking

At weigh in this morning, I am now officially down to 236 pounds. This is a loss of .4 pounds from last week. I expect the weight loss will slow down and plateau for the next couple of weeks during reintroduction. I may even gain some back. I’m certain that this small amount of loss this week is due to the fact that I reintroduced sugar. The reintroduction of dairy, legumes, and gluten will affect it, too.

I’m not discouraged by it. As I said, I’m expecting it. Once reintroduction is complete, I intend to go back to a mostly paleo diet, allowing myself dairy and eggs, with the occasional side of rice. That is, assuming I don’t react to any of those things.

I’m very proud of how far I’ve come in such a short time. At the beginning of this year, I was wearing size 26 jeans. As of yesterday, I’m in a size 20! By the end of this year, I’d like to be below 200 pounds and in a size 14 or smaller. I think that’s completely doable.

My ultimate goal is to get down to somewhere between 120 and 140 pounds, as that is the doctor recommended goal for a woman of my height and age. Ideally, I’d like to do this before my birthday in March 2021. However, this is only achievable if I lose about 2 pounds per week until then. If it doesn’t happen, that’s ok. Any weight loss is a success, as I’ll be that much healthier.

I have a deep love of the woods. In my free time, I enjoy genealogy (family history), etymology (study of names and words), movies, music, reading, writing, painting, cooking, sewing, theater (opera, ballet, etc.), and traveling.
