Starting weight = 217.4 lbs
Ending weight = 215.2 lbs
It was a solid week on the LCHF diet front for me, resulting in a 2.2 pound weight loss. That’s over one-percent of my current body weight. To me, it’s a perfect amount to lose in a week. If I can keep it up, I’ll reach my target weight of 199 pounds by the end of September.
I’ve lost five pounds in the past three weeks, just a touch under the two-pound a week average.
One complication has entered my life. I’ve been having mysterious pain in my left shoulder and upper arm, which my doctor thinks is being caused by a pinched nerve in the neck. I started taking an oral steroid today, and will be doing a month of physical therapy.
A side-effect of the steroid medication is that it raises blood glucose levels.
I’m not sure what the effect will be on a person who is in ketosis. But the pain has eased already. Right now, that has to be my main objective.
