Turns out I have high blood pressure when I went to weigh in today and I only lost .5 lb in 5 days. My blood pressure was 120/80 when normally it’s 106/62. It’s borderline being high for anyone and much more so when I’m normally so low. I’ve been lightheaded and feeling tension in my head all day so I do t think its down so I’m not sure what to do.
Weirdest thing in the world last night happened.
I was with a friend waiting for dinner when all of a sudden I noticed I could only see one part of her face at a time. Same when I started looking around at people. Then when I would look sideways at her, I started seeing flashing lights. Reminded me of Vegas lol. They stopped by the time we finished dinner but then my eyes and forehead were hurting.
At that point I had to google my symptoms.
I either had a detached retina, brain cancer, the start of a migraine, or having a stroke.
I guess I can say I’m lucky it was a migraine, but the pain intensified so bad I wanted to puke.
I slept 10 hours though and the pain is gone, my heads just tender.
It just worries me a little. I’ve never even had a headache since I was a teenager. Maybe I’m more stressed than I thought I was, this diet is hurting me, or I’m just getting old.
I’m going to be more careful with my diet, maybe start yoga again to de-stress.
I have to take care if my machine!!!!
Down to the 25 lb mark :)
So guilty though, I was at home two nights ago and could not get a whataburger #1 out of my head. I literally left my house, drove 10 min, and waited another 10 for a burger and fries. So not ok.
Also, lately been sneaking in slices if bread with peanut butter.
It’s got to stop or else I’m going to lose a week of work and not lose a pound :(
Love that even my smallest clothes are getting too big.
Until next time!
So, I did make the 20 lb loss mark since the end of November! It has been up and downs but overall I’ve learned a lot about food and how to not be emotional about it lol. I eat because my body needs it and, honestly, it’s weird if I’m ever feeling stuffed when it used to be the norm. I eat more regularly and with a million times more fruits and veggies. Processed foods are almost all gone and cravings as well. I feel good but I know the hardest part of this journey is about to start. I still have to lose 30 lbs. My biggest hurdle might be me- I don’t know what my body is going to look or feel like. My own body will be foreign to me. I honestly love my body where I’m at right now and it will be hard to keep going on this journey. I’m ready though! Curious. Nervous. Pumped.
Just got home from being snowed in at my moms place with all my family!! Totally lost track of my diet for yummy Mexican food but it was so worth it. I caught up with my sisters and had a chance to get silly with them lol and brave the snow together. Have to get back to work and my routine again tomorrow :)
Haha from moving my moms stuff last night. I’ve been sticking to my menu pretty closely but have had a problem with schedule disruptions that cause me to miss a meal, exercise, etc. I’m going to workout in a few minutes and may go weigh in after and join a class at the MRC center since I haven’t done that yet. I was so happy last time that I lost 8lbs total, not sure if I’m going to really lose anything this time because of the hard time I’ve had these last few days but I guess it’ll just be more motivation to try harder. I’ve been dealing with cravings a lot lately and just wanting to bite into a brownie or cookie though lol.
So I weighed in on Friday and lost 4.5 lbs, which I’m assuming was mostly water weight. That brought me down to 209.5.
I stopped the whole program though on Friday after I caught a cold and felt like I was going to pass out. I ate the same but stopped the pills. Surprisingly, I stepped on the scale yesterday morning and has still lost weight.
Started the pills again today. Had a dizzy spell earlier, I’m going to go talk to them about swapping something out because I’m not going to stick with it it if I feel sick, I know myself too well lol.
Going in early tomorrow for my meeting and weighing in for the first time not sure what ill see but hope its good news
