I try to post on one or two panic buttons daily. About a month ago, I started SP again, and was doing great. With multiple health issues, walking and modified 28 day boot camp was what I'd decided on, and, of course, food changes.
The inches were flying off. Literally. I lost a pant size the first week.vnow,vthose new pants slide right down my hips. I ended up getting bursitis in both knees, but got knee supports and kept right on walking, never missing a day without getting in my mile. I got my best mile two days ago. Under 20 mins, which may not seem fast to you all, but for one carting around an 02 tank and a walker,bits pretty fast.
Last Monday, they decidided I was in congestive heart failure due to the swelling. I'm gaining a ton of weight by night.
Herein lies the problem. I don't know what up, but now, I'm having trouble staying awake. I missed my walk yesterday for the first time since I started. I feel like I've failed myself. I didn't stop even with the bursitis or the CHF, but how do I combat exhaustion? I slept probably 20 hours yesterday.
That's after two or so days of barely sleeping at all, and taking a crap load of new meds trying to get my BP down and my lounge clear.
I'm not going over in my calories. Unfortunately, I have the opposite problem right now, no appetite at all. I ate once yesterday. Of course, I was only awake a few hours.
So, suggestions? I'm not going to continue these meds if the reward is exhaustion.
I will be thinner and healthier if it kills me. We don't say diet in our house-ever. Diets fail!
