It's been proposed...

Wednesday, October 31, 2012

...that Halloween be postponed til November 6th. Trick or treat? I heard it on the news.

Seriously, it bothers me that folks are off-kilter right after daylight savings begins. Especially that first Monday. Wonder if that effects how votes go.

On a personal note, I was at the doc's yesterday. Weight jumped down 3 lbs since the weekend. Likely cause of the gain was probably sodium. I have to keep monitoring everything - what goes in & out and when; tracking sodium and some other nutrients. Thanks for all your support during that scare. Oh yeah, I have a mild diuretic to take as well.

    Good to hear that you doing better. Salt always does me in scales.
So I watch it carefully.
Well Trick/treat 7 day after the real day: that is rich but better late than never. I wonder if people will not have eaten most of the candy? emoticon

    Glad things are going better. Careful with diuretics, they can plummet your potassium levels.

    they just want to control everything.
I take Lasix everyday because of fluid retention. If I forget there's about 3 lbs more to my weight each day I forget.
Sodium is also hard on the heart. That was the one thing they stressed to my brother was watch sodium after he had his quadruple bypass three years ago. So he watches sodium on labels like a hawk - seriously he compares the meats in the meat dept because of the sodium content. Read the labels on everything.

    Tracking sodium is important hun, it can cause bloatedness and water retention at the very least.
