So I thought I had a tumor but it turns out it was a bone I haven’t felt in 15 years. How was your week?
Oh, and I lost 2 more pounds. After that 3 pound lost last week I thought for sure I’d have a very small one this week.
I. Am. Only. 2.6 Pounds. From. Goal.
I will then try not to lose weight. What?
If I try and remember a time when I wasn’t at least thinking about my weight I’d have to go back to when I was 10 years old. I was a horrible sleeper and my parents finally gave up trying to make me stay in bed, so I’d get up and watch TV in the middle of the night at least a couple times a week.
There was an infomercial on and they were talking about back fat. I vividly remember reaching around and thinking that I might have that! And it was Bad! I was in 4th grade and weighed 69 pounds. I remember that for obvious reasons.
Seriously in the 80’s kids new what that number meant and it being announced in front of everyone will scar you for life. I wonder if they still do that to kids?
I think the average 10 year old is supposed to weigh like 75 pounds, so yeah, I didn’t have an inch of fat on me.
So most of my life I’ve thought about my weight or losing weight. In the culture we live in I’m guessing that is the case for most females, if not males. Do you all have similar experiences?
It feels weird to think about it, that I will be at the weight I want to be at. It almost feels uncomfortable.
I’ll cross that bridge when I come to it I suppose. Now I’m just going to power on to rid myself of those last 2.6 pounds. I am expecting a stand still soon here, and that’s okay. My body likes it’s fat and tends to hold on for a week or two before giving it up. Two big losses like that in a row is a small miracle.
Oh, and I’ve received a ton of support from the Instant Pot Community on Facebook. I received a ton of messages asking if I knew of a healthy recipe pressure cooker community. I didn’t so I started one. Please join if you are interested in healthy recipes for your pressure cooker!
Also I’ve gotten a lot of feedback that people really like my A Day in the Life – 30 Point Day, so I’m going to try and post a 30 point day each week.
Have a great week everyone!
