Checking in again. Still 120. Should change my profile pic - it is around 10 lbs ago. Not spending so much time on the computer - which is a healthy sign for me. Lots of computer time usually means I am feeling low energy and not up to much.
34-24.5-34.5 - waist up .25 from last week - I am looking a little puffy and feeling gassy - I think I forgot a lactaid yesterday with some dairy. Or maybe it is waist weight.
Thigh 18.5 - down .375 (progress!)
Arm 10.25 - down .25 (more progress!)
very active yesterday - got lots done and it feels great to be active. I am not by nature a lazy person so it is good to be able to have a full day and enjoy the accomplishment of getting a lot done.
still eating ray peat style, but thought I'd try doing it in the context of 3 meals a day - leptin reset style. I tend to need energy in the morning, and a big breakfast should help with that. I just need to make sure I don't bump my calories up when I change - maybe I should keep an eye on them for a couple of days just to see.
Stomach is great - I think I have finally dialed it to what ti takes to have a good belly (plus enough healing has happened) Only 2 bouts of diarrhea in the last 3-4 weeks, which is amazing for me. Another reason to feel good - physically and emotionally!
Emotionally and spiritually I am feeling more at peace too. Meditating upon some of the proverbs these days - Trust in the Lord and lean not on your own understanding - don't be wise in your own eyes. Be teachable and humble. Don't think you can figure everything out.
Thyroid felt high despite normal tsh (1.28) took it down from 7 pills a day to 5 or 6 a day, and that is helping energy level and mood tremendously too.
Little by little, things continue to get better.
