Getting dizzie but holding on!

Tuesday, July 03, 2012

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!

    I am so happy to see you writing blogs again. Woohoo!!!
Now, as for salt. Please slow down, just a little at a time. Really try adding just a little less at meals. Every little bit will help.
I am thrilled that your aches and pains are getting better. It is so hard to do anything when your body hurts. Take care. and remember, just one moment, one meal, one day at a time. Baby steps are they key. Hugs, Jackie
