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 weŽll 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:
