A lot has been happening, and my blog has been neglected as a result.
A brief summary is that after a follow-up appointment with my cardiologist (post hospitalization for fainting), he strongly requested that I stop losing weight for now. He said I could go forward with losing the small amount I have left to goal, in the future.
I was also told to increase my sodium uptake, and be careful how I handle liquids and food when hiking (salty jerky = good).
It has been quite a shift in focus, and there have been some changes with how I am handling what I eat. I am using an increased daily calorie limit of 1760, and added in some carbs outside my Reward Meal. Not just any carbohydrates, but apples or almonds (or a mix of nuts). I plan to add avocado as an acceptable addition at meals outside my Reward Meal as well.
This is all trial and error. If I get cravings, if my weight does not stay in the 3 pound range I have chosen (an average weight of 150 to 153), then I will again adjust.
During this time, I also made the decision to close my business. I want to move forward with other things in my life, it was just time.
I will post all my daily weights since the last time I posted them, and now do better at posting regularly again.
