I have done everything right for the last two weeks religiously, tracked, within points but nada.
Yes, I know the legs are the heaviest they've been but I just can't get my head around the numbers on the scales.
I can't get into the car for any length of time which means going to gym has been a real issue for me right now, I might get in the car and get there, but coming home could be a real problem as the leg swells up I am unable to fit in the car and shut the door properly.
For the first time Toni was really comprehending how I was feeling in respect to doing it all right and still gaining. Especially when she has been losing the last two weeks, we're eating same things, same amounts but vastly different results,
So she sat down and we talked frankly about it all and came up with a game plan for the next two weeks, if then there are no changes, I will see my doctor.
I have been taking my thyroxine all this week without dramas, so hopefully they will kick in in another week or so. One thing I have noticed is I haven't had time of month since April, could be stress after my sister's death (I did become sick with cellulitis then too) or a symptom of my thyroid problems, or even menopause?
We also took measurements from waist, upper thigh left & right plus above knee left & right and I'll be using them as a tool to measure how I'm going, the waist most of all as the leg ones we've mainly keeping a record of the lymphoedema fluid fluctuations, example is there is over 9 inches difference in the upper thigh of the left to the right leg (left being the worst one)
But I will add these measurements to here when I get back to my computer - at moment I'm out in lounge room with legs up using Toni's laptop while she's away at her game night.
Plus listening to Shania Twain at same time, I'm slowly relaxing and getting my determination and fire back, please don't worry bout me, I don't give up easily.
