I swear I'm about ready to try some "home" liposuction..Ok, not really, but, geeze! I've done everything but starve myself, and I've gained 6lbs for the month of July..That's 1/2 of what I've lost since March, when I first came back..
I still think it's water retention, because I started putting it on about the middle of June, when it started getting warm, but once it really got hot and humid at the start of July, there was no stopping it, and no getting rid of it.. What do I have to do to get rid of it? I drink enough water to sink the Titantic, I finally got my dr to break down and prescribe a diuretic a month ago, and nothing..If this 6lbs is water, I'd hate to see what my gain would've been had I not started the diuretic!
Figure this one out (and if someone does, let me know will ya?)..My clothes aren't fitting any differently..It's like all this weight is in my one leg..Yep, I'm not retaining in both ankles, just one..My left ankle/foot looks down right skinny compared to the tree trunk I call my right ankle.. 3-4 hours after I'm up and about, I don't even HAVE an ankle...I've noticed if I'm on my feet alot, then my left swells a little, but NOTHING like my right..I'm lop-sided! This started when the weather started getting warm, which I knew it was coming; I've retained during the summer, since I was pregnant with my son 25 yrs ago, but this is driving me crazy..It's never been just one side, and never this bad that it doesn't go completely down during the night..
Ok, I'm done griping..I'll just have to work harder this month, and this WILL come off, if I gotta stick a vaccuum cleaner to my leg to do it..lol
