Anemia Update

Saturday, January 11, 2014

I started a Biggest Loser challenge on January 1 and started off doing GREAT! I was eating right and working out again. And then....

I fainted again last Saturday. I'm assuming it's the anemia. So I was back to extreme laziness for two days and have been working my way back since -- taking my iron pills faithfully and eating more meat. Actually I'm eating more in general because the iron pills make me a little nauseated, and I seem to feel better when my stomach has something in it.

So the weight I lost at the start of the challenge came right back on, and here we are 11 days into the month and I'm starting over. I'm not too worried about it. Assuming the anemia will gradually fade away, I can get right back to what I was doing -- eating lighter (but more meat now) and exercising again.

    did your doctor tell you how long it will take to build up your iron counts again?

    Glad you are taking the pills again and taking some time to recoup.
