This weight loss roller coaster sure has my head spinning but I am still holding on tight!
I stopped taking my potassium pills. Hold on my friends, there is a reason behind the madness.......
I am a salt-aholic. I adore the stuff. I am BAD at using salt on my foods. Not while I cook, and I buy the low sodium veggies, but when I sit down to eat I indulge WAY TO MUCH!
So I make adjustments here and there and try to cut back a little more each day. I am usually NEVER successful but I do try.
Back to the subject at hand, I stopped taking the potassium pills. I had noticed that I was a little more swollen than usual and my joints, skin, and muscles were killing me and had been for about three weeks. I didn't want to get up and move or even get up at all.
There wasn't a huge change in the scale. Just 1 pound but I FEEL so much better. The aches and pains have eased up and the joints are much less stiff and painful.
I think that is called an AH HA moment!
