    🤦🏽‍♀️. This why it’s important for me to track everything.

    It does take practice and commitment. I'm struggling to get back in the routine too. I had dropped 100 lbs. and then gained back 40.

    August Week 1
    PW: 311.2
    CW: 320.5

    I think it's a sodium issue. I had beef and broccoli Chinese food and frozen beef and sausage patties a few times this week. 60mg for each frozen beef patty and 320mg for each sausage patty.

    But, I did lose 1 inch off my waist, 1.5 inches off my hips, 1 inch off my chest, and 1 inch off my stomach. Lost 13.5 inches overall, with 3 inches in each calf and two inches off my upper arm.

    If it weren't for the sodium, does that mean that my weight would have been lower than last week's? Oh, also I was tracking my weight this week and at it's highest, the weight was 323.1. So 320.5 is better than it was earlier this week. :)

    @pattihyer122 Not too horrible.
    @tina9572 Great week! You're doing fantastic!
    @TypingToaster sodium will do it! I'm very sensitive to sodium too. It can be a +/- 10 lbs sometimes for me.

    @WA_Teacher Thanks! It's probably because so far there have not been any painful symptoms (other than a glomas tumor). Just kind of weird stuff that are almost comical when listed by themselves. Everything comes and goes which is why I haven't paid too much attention to the whole is just another crazy thing that happens to me. Everything just kind of pounced on me though....nouns are gone from my speech recall. I have to rearrange my thinking and find a synonym or adjective. Like, when I look at a cat, I can't recall the word will end up being the "fluffy meow thing" or "feline". Whenever I bend my neck forward, my body buzzes like a plucked guitar string or an electric toothbrush. Full body neuropathy. The list just goes on and on, but it wasn't bad until about a month or two ago. I just don't know how to explain to my husband that if it is MS, there is no cure. He depends on me to do bills, finances, and house cleaning.....he opens jars and fetches things off the top shelf! We have a mutually dependent relationship...we would both starve without the other! :D

    Ugh pms bloat combined with extra salt from celebrating anniversary a week early and having company over has me feeling puffy. Going to stay on track this week and hope for a big whoosh. One day at a time everyone 😁

    Finally got rid of all that salt!
    @notasafool that is what happened to me last week and then I just got the whoosh.

    @mram3582 That's what we're taking about. Don't focus on the number on the scale. It will fluctuate but just stay the course.

    Well, that was quick....after first setting a neuro appointment for mid October (the earliest they said I could be seen), I faxed over all the symptoms and timeline and day "cancellation" 1st patient to be seen. It is never a good sign when a doctor has a "cancellation". So, tomorrow the games begin!

    It’s been challenging, but I’m learning the value of “slow but steady” - I’d rather be consistent than see unsustainable, dramatic weight shifts. It’s a mind game more than anything for sure.
