Food stayed in fine today.Had boiled egg and 1/2 slice toast for 120 calories,ate about 300 cals sunflower seeds for lunch,a 5 hundred cal meal,some seeds maybe 100 cals,and broth.Feel great,tons of energy.Im going up and down stairs and not hardly feeling them,BIG change!
I once lost 20 pound in two week. When I was like 14 1/2 I found a lump behind my ear. Mom looked and nothing. After couple weeks I told her I still had the lump. Basically she said shut up about it is nothing but a wax kernel. So my oldest sister came over and told her. I did not have a sore throat r the lump hurt. My sister got after mom and told her to get me to doctor. Doctor said not the bad thing but it should not be there. Infected tonsil and I would have to have them out. Had to wait till cold. 1946. I was in hospital to get out and I bed like heck. I a inheirted bleeder. I had to be taken back to operating room and stitched. I had to stay all night with ice pack on. Several weeks before I could eat as my mouth swelled shut about. No she did not bother to call the doctor about it. My other sister would bring over ice, I lived on milk. My older sister did not know it. It was my oldest sister that always helped me.
spuds, maybe you should talk to your doctor about your BP med. Sounds like you're experiencing orthostatic hypertension. Might need to lower your dose now that you've lost weight.
Absolutely.Now that Im on food the dizziness has resolved. Meds are half and could be less.Dehydration is a real issue with a liquid diet and keeping fluid balanced is a big issue,especially upon awaking.Also a big issue is the protein loss and its effects on muscle tone.
However I dont miss the 50 lbs at all. It was definitely worth it.
