Y’all are awesome. Thank you for the info, your support and putting up with me whining. This has been a long, frustrating and painful three weeks.
Unfortunately, hypothyroidism and water retention go hand in hand for some of us lucky victims.
Friday I took herbal compounds for water retention; had 4 cups of dandelion and peppermint tea … up from the two a day I had been having; propped my feet up higher than my heart for an hour … which I have been doing daily; and woke up Saturday morning feeling a million times better. I soaked in the tub with a cup of Epsom salt letting the water turn cold … I had been soaking all along but someone suggested to stay in until the water turned cold.
The 5 pounds of water weight seems to be gone! In fact the scale moved down an extra pound. I am ½ pound away from dumping 50 pounds. I have been here before … I can not wait to get into some virginal fat.
