I gained five pounds this week! I know part of the reason is that I am retaining fluid; but I don't know why. I feel puffy and my hands and feet are swollen.
One of my medications was changed to a different brand, but it's basically the same thing I have been taking. I am getting more than my required water intake, it's basically all I drink. I have been snacking on baby carrots and cucumber slices. It's just so frustrating.
The good news: I'm happy to report that I did not lose control or have a pity party while stuffing my face full of unhealthy junk foods. I did allow myself a moment of pouting and then shook it off.
I am more determined than ever to stay on track and keep putting one foot in front of the other. I'm getting my health back one day at a time.
