I was in the hospital for 7 days and in that time I lost another 10 lbs from being so sick. I was sick for over week and my husband had to take me to the emergency room I was not breathing right. When I got there they started EKG, heart monitor, blood work, oxygen, iv's the works. I found out that my potassium level was life threatening and I had pneumonia. They were afraid that my heart was damaged from the my potassium being so low. I was so sick they had Iv's running putting potassium in me plus several antibiotics, steroids meds to help me breathe. I had breathing treatment after breathing treatment. I am home now after 7 days and I am still not out of the woods I went today and had blood work done I go Wednesday to my doctor she has to find a way to get my potassium up.
With all this being said that is why I have lost so much weight not because I was trying not to eat I could not eat. I still have a hard time eating still taking meds.
I am still eating healthy even in the hospital what I eat I make the right choices. I will continue my journey and find my new life style. I just started coming back in here and logging my intake of food it will be a while before I can exercise because I am so weak but I will get back on track with that also.
I still have a long way to go just taking one day at a time.
