I lost thirty pounds since March..actually since May typo

Friday, July 04, 2014

I have been sick and in bed. They found a blood clot in my lungs in March and in May I dislocated my kneecap,,,,again. I cant get up so no exercise because they wont do surgery on my leg til im off the blood thinner. So I lay around in bed, eating eating cheap, low quality food because its easy to prepare or no prep. I used to bike 3 to 5 miles a day and now I cant even walk 5 minutes and its been months laying around. The results of no exercise and eating bad food? for the first time since 2010, I have lost weight. It makes me happy to lose the weight but frustrated too. Why am I losing the weight now? and how do I keep it off? The only time I lose weight in my life is when I am sick. when I ate 1,000 calories a day, I gained 6 lbs a week. It doesnt make sense and Im frustrated. What happens once I can walk again and make healthy food? Gain 30 lbs back in a month? In the past, lost ten pounds and gained in back. I went from 135 lbs to 172 lbs in two weeks. I have no control of what my body does and its frustrating.

    Wow, so sorry.

    I would say you need an expert. I would seek an MD who is also an ND, and check out your hormones. That is just bizarre you losing while eating crap - I wonder if there is some other latent reason you are losing?

    It appears you have many internal issues - like what is the root cause of your blood clot(s). Need an MD / ND who is a holistic internal expert.

    My brother has an upper thigh clot and DVT, on Zarelto. Woke up with a huge swollen leg one morning, out of the blue. My dad had plebitis and DVT, and a metal filter inserted in his carotid to keep them the clots from going to his brain, and was on coumadin. My sister had blood clots in a vein. I'm the youngest, but it appears my turn is coming. I had 13 fractures and metal in my ankle in 83, and that leg is much more swollen than the other. I'm already on fish oil. I'm going to start on some natural things very very carefully, after further study - nattokinase, sea buckthorn, etc. So I feel for your blood clot situation. In my case it seems to be genetic. How is your knee?

    Hope you're soon feeling better emoticon

    I sort of know how you feel, l broke my kneecap last year and was hobbling around for ten months before l realised and had it fixed, it had to be broken again to be reset as it had healed wrongly!
    Take care, l hope you don't mind but l've added you as friend.

    Processed foods and sugars thicken your blood, and with the no exercising, you put yourself at greater risk. So, try to eat healthy and get back on your feet soon.

    You have been through a really rough time. It's great that you have lost all of that weight but not this way. I hope you get over this soon. emoticon
