The Captain down to 231
The Captain came down with a gum infection, went to the doctor, and had to get on antibiotics. I literally could not drink more than a few protein shakes a day without intense pain, and I was taking 8 alleves a day. It really was a miserable couple of days.
I also worked in the fields 11 hours a day stringing tomatoes and pounding heavy stakes into the ground. A sort of "perfect storm" of marathnon physical work,extreme pain, and a forced atkins diet. My jaw finally felt better this morning and I am now only taking 2 alleves. However, I am taking myself out of this weeks weight loss challenge. This is simply due to the fact that a swollen jaw gaves me an unfair advantage, but interestingly enough I would not wish this advantage on anyone. Any takers? My goal next week is to stay at 231 and not regain a loss due to sickness. This can be easy to do. Thanks again Spider for the great plug on your last post, and fantastic job half the man for losing almost 4 pounds.
