So, what an awesome first week. Due to a wonky scale, I don't know exactly how much weight I lost, but it was between 10 and 12 pounds! Sure, most of it might be water weight, but maybe not, because I had been losing weight prior to primal.
Not looking forward to lunch time today, as I have a dentist appointment where I need to discuss having my tooth pulled to have an implant put in. I have been dealing with this tooth for2 months; I just want it to be over.
Anyway, just an awesome first week!
Ugh..... lots of pain right now..... It turns out that I need a dental implant... and the cost will be what really hurts... My insurance plan is only covering $181 of the $3000 to have it done. Thank goodness I had such an awesome week or I would be really miserable right now!
The periodontist pulled out just the broken part of the tooth so far.
I have been following your journal and just wanted to say that I think you are awesome! So upbeat! I also wanted to say that I hope your mouth feels better soon! I have also been a victim of oral surgery so I understand your pain :(
Here is hoping for ANOTHER great week.... would love to knock off another 3 pounds if possible. I am REALLY sure that I can get to my goal of 255 by 2013. In fact, I am challenging myself to get to 250 by 2013. As soon as I am done posting here, and doing my other internet stuff I am going to the basement to watch TV, but I will be on my stationery bike the whole time, and yes, actually pedaling.
My blood sugars are coming down, which is especially nice.
Tomorrow I plan to make some kind of Mexican stew if I can find the recipe again. all I remember is that it had red cabbage in it, and I have 2 heads of red cabbage in the fridge.
I know it's bot supposed to be scary, but I ate about 20 eggs in the last week, and I do have concerns, regardless of what the plan says....

20 eggs is nothing. That's a pretty slow week for me. You'll get used to it. Keep up the good work!
Well, it is 12:35 AM here, and I just did a 20 minute stationery bike ride.... wanted to do more, but then remembered that I have a really early day tomorrow.
10.2.12 Day 9
I'm up even earlier than I wanted to be. I went to pee, and I could just tell that I wasn't going to be able to fall back asleep. I also just realized that I need a laxative. I never have any issues with going to the bathroom, but I have noticed over the last 3 days that there is a lot of stuff going into me, but very little coming out. I have a pharmacy near me that is probably open right now. I am going to see if they have an all natural laxative, but even if they don't, I am buying something. I'm starting to have a bit of stomach discomfort.
I'm guessing that might be from a lack of fiber, even though I am eating my veggies and a tiny bit of fruit.
Pretty common at first. Make sure you're drinking lots of water, it helps (eventually).
Magnesium citrate and/or high doses (we're talking a few grams, if necessary) of Vitamin C are good options. Some people like Senna (it's in a lot of teas meant for relief), but I find that it gives me cramps.
So, tonight my dinner is "Buffalo Chicken Chili"..... not hard at all to make it paleo, as it is pretty close to start with:

So, I was tempted to jump on the scale again today, but I resisted. It's so exciting to see the weight coming off. But I plane to only weigh myself on Mondays from here on out!
