And I can't believe it. I've been struggling with hypothyroidism so losing weight has been HARD. I was getting upset everytime I weighed myself and it kept going up. The last time I weighed myself I was about 158. I went to the doctor Friday and the nurse said I was 153 with my clothes and boots on. I weighed myself Saturday and I'm around 147.8. I'm excited because I wasn't even trying. Yeah I've been running(not really strength training) but I think a lot of it is from this primal eating method. I'm loving it so far.
The down side, I tend to get obsessed with weighing myself. At one point I was weighing myself multiple times a day. I'm going to try really hard to remember that it's not the number on the scale, it's how I feel and the way my clothes fit. I need to lose about 5 more for the Army and I'd like to drop down another 10 but progress so far is making me happy.
Apparently, I also have shin splints. I have these wonderful little knots up and down my shins. The husband says they're probably shin splints, they've probably been there a while and were aggravated by snowboarding on Saturday. My half is in 3 weeks. Awesome. He tried to massage them out, which flippin HURTS by the way.
Ever had shin splints? Any ideas how to help them?
