My weigh-ins are saturday morning and I obsess a little and usually weigh-in some days before to see if I am okay. This week has been good on eating and exercising so I did not see it coming when I climbed the scale this morning and noticed a plus of five kilos.... not even possible!
Explanation? I took the last of my diuretic medicine saturday and this has to be fluids building up in my body because there is no way I could have gained weight from food.
Today it is off to the pharmacy and get the second load of those pills before I have gotten all that was in my prescription. Then we´ll see what happens.
It is very discouraging to see that my work to lose weight was worth nothing on the scale when I did not take that medicine. My arrogant mind had thought that because I have been eating well, exercising and lost wieght, I might had "fixed" the unbalance that gave me that oedema in the first place. I am not fond of pills... but it is time to be humble and eat my medicine like a good girl and hope it drives the extra fluid out before weigh-in day...
My spiralizer arrived yesterday - made my own zucchinispaghetti and ate it with tandoori beetrott:
