It can be that way sometimes.

Well I ended up gaining back some of the weight I lost over the summer and I just didn't add it back to my tracker since I was kind of ashamed of it. But I am back to being honest with myself plus I have lost some of the regained weight so I felt I should get back to tracking with my weigh-ins. I am only doing them weekly now. I was having issues with weighing more and more and finally ended up doing it every day so I just stopped altogether.
Any ways I recently discovered that I have a cavity on the outside of my tooth. We don't have dental insurance and I am not keen on the idea of having someone drill a bigger hole into my tooth to "fix" the problem. So I have done some online research for naturally healing cavities and it has lead me to a dietary change. I am more or less paleo for the time being until my cavity heals, although if it turns out that we are all healthier this way we may just stay this way permanently. I am feeling really good. It has been about a week and a half of no grains, no sugar, and I don't miss it. Yes I am still eating carbs in the form of starchy and non-startchy vegetables.
I did get on the scale the morning I was going to start and recorded that weight on a paper in my bathroom drawer. After a few days of eating this way I noticed that my clothes were looser. I wasn't feeling bloated. Another day or two went by and the brain-fog I normally had by mid-afternoon was gone too. Exactly a week after I had started I weighed myself out of curiosity. 5 lbs gone!! I wasn't working out, no extra actives that I hadn't been doing already, and I was down 5 lbs! It will be interesting to keep a weekly eye on things from here on out. Though it is funny to me that the harder I tried to lose weight in the past with working out really hard and trying different ways of eating I just couldn't make it budge, and this time I wasn't even going for weight loss, I'm just trying to heal a cavity, and I have lost weight without even trying. Who knows maybe it is happening because I am not stressing out about losing weight so my body is just able to let go? I don't know. But I am thanking God for whatever this path to healing my teeth may bring to other parts of my body as well.
