Thursday Weigh-In - October 12th:
10/12/2017: -2.4 pounds
Total lost: 60.4 pounds
Current Weight: 169.6 pounds
Wooohooo!! I am down 60 lbs and out of the 170's!! 60 lbs is the equivalent of these guys...
...it's also the weight on an elephants penis but I'm not looking up pics of that!! ROFL!!
I'm SO excited! I've been working on getting out of the 170's since mid-August and these last 10 lbs have taken me longer to lose than any of the other ones but I know that's normal and things will continue to slow down as I get closer and closer to my target goal weight. And, speaking of that, I am now only 39.6 lbs away from my current goal weight!! This is also a loss of 29 lbs in the 18 weeks of no cheating on low carb/keto.
I'm now a half pound away from being out of the obese BMI and into the overweight which hasn't happened for a good 15-16 years now!
I'm going to continue with my plan the way I have been and with breaking things down into 5 lbs segments which gives me little, attainable goals to focus on so my next short-term goal is 165 lbs.
In other news I ended up in Urgent Care yesterday evening because the rash on my face that I mentioned yesterday started spreading and itching like crazy. In fact, it moved a good 3 inches in the time I was in the urgent care office. I'm now on 3 meds including 2 antihistamines and an oral steroid (which is making me feel really sick) but it stopped the itching and things seem to looking slightly better right now but it's always worse in the afternoons and evenings so we'll see what happens tonight.
They know it's not viral or bacterial so I'm not contagious, but they don't know what it is. They're thinking maybe it's my body's reaction to the insane stress of this past week and it looks really bad. I still had plans to work out until the Prednisone started making me feel like crap and now I'm not so sure I can so I'm going to focus on getting better and get to the gym when I feel up to it.
I'm seeing my regular doctor tomorrow to go over everything and see if I'm on the right course of meds and hopefully we'll be able to see how my iron and cholesterol levels are doing after 6 months of cutting my cholesterol med in half and taking iron. I'm hoping I can get rid of the cholesterol one altogether!
I think that's it for today but I am psyched by this weigh-in!
