Well, I didn't weigh in last week because I didn't want to see the damage. I wrote a bit ago about starting on some anti-anxiety medication which killed my appetite and was the reason for three solid weeks of 2+lb losses. I loved it! However, this medication also dropped my already low blood pressure level and I couldn't get out of bed without passing out. A day of bed rest, lots of fluids, and stopping that medication ASAP was their cure. Well, my appetite came raging back and I was also dealing with the emotional shift from the abrubt stopping of the medication. It has not been pretty.
They started me up on a new medication and I know that this is a terrible thing to say, but I was hoping I would have some appetite loss like I did with the other medication to get my weigh-ins back on track. Can't believe I said that out loud, because that is totally not the reason I was taking the meds, but it was a fun side effect (until I stopped and it came right back so I KNOW it is not a good thing). I'm working on getting in exercise and busying myself with projects around the house when I'm home from work so I don't stuff my face, and I'm hoping that this new medication will help with the anxiety without knocking me out again.
I don't really want to weigh in on Friday because I loved seeing those numbers go down but maybe it will motivate me. It was SO nice to see a number in the 150s!
