Another Period Of Weight Loss

Contrary to the slight worries and fears expressed in my post on Monday about being weighed, I actually had a pretty decent result when I went to the doctors. Decent considering what I've been eating and doing in the past few weeks that is. Which is, not much. I've not been doing much. I've been keeping up with my exercise though and even upping it a bit and that seems to have made enough of a difference for me to lose six pounds. Exercise can't undo damage done, but it can certainly mitigate it.
For people who don't know what the number six looks like. For some reason searching "six" brought up softcore porn. Thanks Google!
One problem I have right now though is that my left knee is starting to hurt. There's a minor dull ache when I'm walking or applying pressure to it, and occasionally it can flare up into full blown pain. When that happens I have to stretch it out a bit and it usually ends with me resting it on my bed. I should probably call the physio, and kind of told my nutritionist that I would, but I'm afraid of bad news. One thing I always wanted to do was keep my mobility. I wanted to never end up being unable to move properly. My nutritionist suggested some foods to encourage better joints before sending me on my way.
Apparently the humble pineapple is good for your joints
Another, much larger, problem I have is that I actually don't feel or even, in my own eyes, LOOK any thinner. I've lost a grand total of over forty pounds now, I've dropped about a 7th of my body weight, and I don't know why but I still can't see it. Morgan (I'm tired of just referring to her as "my nutritionist") suggested that maybe I'm just built naturally large. Apparently being big boned is an actual thing and not just an excuse. I guess we'll see what's left when I've dropped another hundred pounds and I'm where I'm supposed to be on the weight scale. Still, forty pounds in 7 months, not bad at all. I've actually lost 48 pounds, which is pretty good.

Yes, I am that humble.

Just Over Three Years

I've not really done much lately, and there's not too much to report. That would generally mean that there's not much to blog about but that isn't totally true this time around as some time last month I celebrated a bit of a birthday. Well, not me personally, but this blog which is now officially three years old.

I don't have any cake or pizza, or anything to drink, or even any presents, but hey it's still a birthday of sorts. I had pizza at my actual birthday but I probably shouldn't eat that for a while. I've kind of had too much lately. Almost definitely had too much actually. I'll find out for sure tomorrow when I get weighed. For now I'm going to party hard. 

It's hard to believe that I've been at this for three whole years now. Sometimes I didn't think I would reach one year, then there was too, and now there's three whole years.  Things have changed, people have come and gone, and I've lasted longer than almost anyone who came in around the same time I did. There are very few blogs I still follow from those very early days. Maybe even literally one or two. I won't really try and name them though in case I'm wrong. I'm going to keep going for now, and I'll see you again next year. Not literally of course, I'll be back Thursday.
This blog.
What are some of your memories of this place? Or your own third birthday? b
