Yesterday, I broke out in hives and rashes all over my body. Luckily my school nurse had some bynedryl and it help calm things down. Unfortunately, I woke up with more spots this morning and my bottom lip began to swell. As a person who has been checked for allergies and never once came up with anything this was concerning. So much I took the day off and took the first appointment available and didn't wait to see my own Dr. (would have gotten in during the afternoon).
God Bless Dr. Poluck who new exactly what I was talking about. In a way I am lucky for I know what is going on for it turns out I had this as a kid, just not this bad. It is called dermatographism which means I could literally use my finger to write on my body. According to my Dr. he wrote his initials on my back today.
Im happy to report I am on meds to stop the crazy histamines from overacting and allow my body to get back to normal. Unfortunately, today I had to take the day off from all exercise and for the next 15 days I am on steroids which means I am going to feel even hungrier. My husband has been given full rights to remind me that it is meds and not actual hunger when I eat. I am also passing that onto all my friends so that I stay in check and continue on this weight loss journey.
On a positive note, I think this is the first time my Dr. scale read under 190. And last night our wii said I lost a lb since last friday. :)
Tomorrow I will be at home again to hopefully get over this stuff. This could be my demise because when I am at home I don't eat all my veggies or fruits like I should. But my plan is to take advantage of being at home to exercise (yoga, wii challenges, some walking and bowflex) also some house work. And when it comes to food, I am going to remind myself like I did today, just say no!
Good luck everyone and make it a great Thursday! :)
