I feel like a failure. Weight back up to 254.8. Well down from 255. I have had a rough few weeks. The new BP Med that caused the water weight to fly off actually caused a potassium deficiency. That was pretty scary as I had heart palpitations and a few episodes of shortness of breath. I'm on a potassium supplement until further notice but my level is back to the very lowest of normal. When it was tested before I started the Med it was right in the middle of the range but closer to the high end. The pharmacist told me not to eat high potassium foods but I'm glad I did because it would have taken much longer to get into the normal range.
Now my Dr just has me taking 3 doses of the Med that I feel has stalled my weight. Not happy but hopefully it will help. If I can't get some of this water weight off by Saturday I am cutting my carbs down to 120 next week. If that doesn't move the scale after a week or two then I will send a message to my Dr. I refuse to be stuck because of a Med any longer than another month.
I tried to do a walking video Monday and earlier today but the rainy weather seems to be doing a number on my foot that I broke last August. Today I will get up for 5 minutes each hour and Today I won't give into the candy monster.
