Weigh in Week 2
Weigh day: Sunday
PW: 246 (111.6 kg)
CW: 246 (111.6 kg)
LTD: 30 lbs (13.6 kg)
I will take that, I know I wasn't on track for quite a few days this week and I posted that my weight jumped up 1.4kg, it finally came back down yesterday and stayed there today. At this point in this very very slooooooow year of weight loss, I really do want to acknowledge my highest (non-pregnant) weight of 149.2 kg / 328.9 lbs, and if I'm going down that road my highest pregnant weight was 12 years and 2 weeks ago at term with my twins- 159 kg / 350.5 lbs. Even after having the twins I was still over 150 kg for a while, but I don't take that as an official weight. I just know I was there between late 2008 and early 2011. I know I weighed myself once on a hospital scale when my older son was there for asthma and I was 154kg.
Anyway, I tend to write off how much weight I have lost in total because that was 'before' and because I gained over half of it back (it freaking sucks to have to lose so much twice). I now take my starting weight from where I was in February 2020, after "the gain". A few people have reminded me recently just how far I have come, albeit over 9 years, but there is truth in weight loss (and maintenance) being a marathon not a sprint, at least for the formerly morbidly obese.
Now on to other things - my husband an I, who have both been incredibly dense about this given our Personal Training qualifications - think we have figured out what my ongoing pain is caused by. Keep in mind I have seen probably 30 specialists at this point and been dismissed by two public health systems (Auckland and Melbourne) as 'undiagnosable' and given the vague label of 'chronic pain' along with migraines. So, hubby and I stumbled across Myofascial Pain Syndrome, which is actually hard to diagnose, but I tick every single box for it. Now, I know that my fascia is tight and some of my muscles are like concrete, but I didn't realise that there was a name for it, or that it refers out pain to other areas of the body. And that every tight muscle with typical referred pain is exactly what I get. It also makes so much sense because all of this pain started about 6 or 7 years ago when I was at my most active - exercising 4 hours per day, running, lifting, cycling, you name it. So now I'm going to focus much more on myofascial release and hopefully make a big difference!

I mean Onederland!
FYI: I’ve got a trick for cutting down on snacking and drinking bad things throughout the day. Get Invisalign. LOL. My daughter and I got ours Thursday. You have to keep them in 22 hours a day, drink nothing but water when they’re in, and it’s kind of a pain to take them out to eat and then have to brush before you put them back in. I’m hoping this will help me get back to Onederland more quickly.

I started having an issue with my back/hip on Wednesday afternoon. I'm pretty sure it's from the knee issues, which cause me to limp sometimes. I had to be careful at my training session on Thursday.
Friday I had a physical therapy session. The PT asked me how I was doing so I told him about the back/hip so he gave me a treatment for that too, which helped for a while. I asked him if he had decided what he is going to tell my doctor (I only have 2 sessions left). He said he wasn't quite sure yet but if he had to say something that day he would have said that although it is slow there is progress and that we could wrap up therapy in the office. I also asked if I could start doing more at the gym. He told me I could do things with lower weights and higher reps to start and work up from there. I was pretty happy about both of those answers.
I spent this morning doing some meal prep for the week. I made overnight oats, chicken and vegetables, energy bites and peanut butter breakfast cookies. Now I have breakfast, dinner and snacks and for lunches at work I"ll bring what I normally bring, which is either a protein bar or a granola bar. I really should do this every week. I know I would eat better if I did it.
