Just Give Me 10 Days - Round 203
👍👍This is NOT A DIET. It’s a LIFESTYLE👍👍 Round 203
I am working to lower my blood pressure through diet and exercise.
10/24: 145.2 Started back to the gym! No snacking or wine 🍷. Yay me!
10/25: 144.8. My daily step count is going up this week.
10/27: 143. Love it when my rings feel looser!
10/28: 143.6. 😞 My guess is sodium
11/1: 143.9. Not bad considering I ate out three times in the last three days.

THERE ARE NO QUICK FIXES OR SHORTCUTS to achieving permanent change.
REMINDERS: One or two thoughts which might give heart to some of you.
- Daily weight fluctuations are normal, and can be as much as 2 lbs a day for no apparent reason.
- A general downward trend is what we are looking for.
- Eating out can cause apparent weight gain because of high sodium levels, but usually goes quickly. Drinking extra water helps with this.
- The human body does not react instantly to what we do to it. Sometimes it can take several days to see results.
- Plateaus are a normal part of the process. The body is consolidating and adapting to your new way of eating, exercising.
- The closer you get to your goal weight, the more difficult it becomes to lose weight, as your body becomes more efficient at using what you feed it.
- When you exercise you build muscle, which takes up less space than fat, so use measurements as well as weight to assess your progress.
- Getting/Staying fit and healthy requires a lifestyle change for most people.
time, effort, and most of all, patience!
Thank you, @quiltingjaine !
72 year old female...5'5" ...I used to be 5'7" but arthritis hit and I lost two inches, so now that two inches is squished around my waist like the billows of a big accordion...

sugarfreesquirrel Posts: 111 MemberStart Weight at beginning of challenge:113.7kg
1/11: 111.7kg I can't remember much. My scales were broken so I started a downward spiral. My parents offered me a set of their scales but their batteries were dead. I stupidly brought myself a large bag of salt and vinegar chips, a cake of chocolate and a bottle of l&p. Then I was sick all night... I had a warning, because my breath smelt really bad. I felt quesy and was getting out of bed every 3-10 minutes to go to the toliet.
2/11: 110.1kg Pretty much ate and drank whatever I felt like today... I had l&p, a hot chocolate, water, a coffee, crackers, wheatbix, a grilled cheese sandwich with onion relish and tomato (which I couldn't finish, I gave half to my dad). I don't think my weightloss is real, I think it's just water and I'll regain most of the weight I've lost in the last day once my illness is over. My dad is wondering if I have covid. I want someone to go out and get me some of those small yoghurt drinks to build up the good bacteria in my gut. I'm considering buying those two dresses but still have a voice in my head saying "don't do it". I'm wondering whether someone in my family will buy me one of them for Christmas. One of the dresses is nearly half it's original cost so I'm definately tempted. Lowest weight in five years. Weird. It's just weird. My collar bones aren't even showing.
3.6kg lost in ten days.
64 yr young F, 5ft 4 Round 203 (my 135th). As always, thank you. @QuiltingJaine.
All but 0.2 pound of holiday weight gain gone. I'd like to lose a pound this round.
No binges, keep within calories & macros.
Achieved goal weigh of 125lb in summer 2016 by losing 66lb and then gradually gained between 7 and 11 since then & didn't want to gain any more, It's took me 75 rounds to achieve my under 130 target; back to maintenance again!! But then I crept up again, so need to get back under 130. Healthy life style has to be a permanent way of life.

10/24 137.2 – 7.81 miles walked.
10/25 137.2 – 10.05 miles walked yesterday.
10/26 135.6 – wow!! was ready for a whoosh, but didn't expect this much,
; stepped on the scales 4 times to check & each time weighed exactly the same. 5.65 miles walked.
10/27 138 – again stepped on the scales 4 times ! Still, stayed in calories & macros yesterday & walked 14.48 miles yesterday. Clothes are feeling looser, I am back in smaller jeans & I can see a change in the mirror, so I'm not concerned.
10/28 136.6 – and another bounce down! I think I'm trampolining at the moment!
10/29 136.6 – stability !! Expected a bounce up as went out for Indian with friends; chose tandori salmon (not served with sauce but with a a side salad), had quarter of a portion of pilau rice and less than a quarter of naan bread. Enjoyed it and felt satisfied. 6 miles walked.
10/30 DNW -stayed over at DS's, taking DGD to Gymnastic World Championships, 75 mile trip each way & then 70 mile journey back home afterwards, so a long day, mostly sitting & prohibited to take any own food into the arena building – a challlenge!
10/31 138 - very high carb day yesterday & no movement, but totally worth it, 4 year old DGD enjoyed the event so much, she does gymnastics herself & was totally immersed in the event!
11/1 138 – 10.7 miles walked. Perfect food day, hope numbers come back down tomorrow.
11/2 137.6 - 9.44 miles walked, another perfect food day. Thats a better number, 0.2 pounds lost during the round, any is better than nothing!!
ﾟﾑﾍThis is NOT A DIET. It’s a PERMANENT HEALTHY LIFESTYLE?ﾟﾑﾍ5
Awesome! Thank you as always for posting @quiltingjaine! These challenges really keep me motivated and you are a great group of people! ❤️
This will be my 14th round and I have lost a total of 28.9 pounds so far while doing these challenges! This challenge brings me the most success and is much easier by breaking up my goals into smaller chunks.
I have one very solid goal, to be in Onederland by 12/17/22, after that, let the weight come off how it does.
UGW: under 150 ish
RGW: 202 ish
I’m hoping to at least maintain this round. I have some pretty nerve-wracking medical procedures coming up and I’ve been eating my emotions.
I feel like I’ve been so close to Onederland for FOREVER but it’s really just that I’ve been thinking about it forever and I need to chill.
10/27: 204.6 🙁
10/28: 204.6 🙁
My breast biopsies came back as one benign, one malignant. I will have surgery in the next 3-4 weeks. I will have more of a plan in place next week. My only option is to move forward!
Not at home, no scales
This is really really depressing. I’m doing everything the same except being really stressed out because of my diagnosis. I worked really hard to lose 47 pounds and DO NOT want to gain it back. 🙁
Ugh. Gained 3.6 pounds. I might have to sit the next couple rounds out. I’m barely able to keep my head above water with keeping up with work and doctors appointments. I need to take care of myself and my parents too!8
@quiltingjaine Thank you for the pep talk! Stress and it’s effects on the body is no joke! I’ve been the “nurse” for my parents for a lot of years and it is no easy task.3
I am excited to be joining another round! You inspire me and motivate me not to reach for the snack pantry every night
Starting Weight (2018): 230lbs
Ultimate Goal: 140lbs
Starting weight for R203: 161.6
R203 Goal Weight: under 160 lbs
10/24 - 162.1 (+ 0.5lbs) Oops! Thinking this has something to do with that time of the month though. Did an hour HIIT workout yesterday and stayed within my calorie goal.
10/25 - 163.1 (+1.5lbs) No clue what’s going on here 😂 Staying below calories. Did 1 HIIT workout and 1 Tabata workout yesterday + went for a walk. Maybe because I had to eat really late since I had a full day of workouts. I usually fast for about 12-14 hours in the evening/morning. I’ll see how it adjusts the next few days 😅 Maybe things improve when my period is over too. I’m still gaining muscle and putting in the work though, so it’s going to be all good eventually 🙏🏻
10/26 - 162.4 (+0.8lbs) Did an hour HIIT workout yesterday and stayed within calories. The past two days I’ve barely gotten any sleep, so it’s starting to take a toll on me. Taking a rest day today since I’ve been working out 3 days in a row. Going for 3 more days this week too, but it will involve more heavy lifting so I just want my body to feel fresh and ready.
10/27 - 162.4 (+0.8lbs) I would be lying if I said I’m not disappointed in this round. Went 100 cals over my goal yesterday, which should be perfectly fine considering I’m eating very low calorie and exercising 5-6 times a week. Hoping the weight starts budging again really soon..
10/28 - 162.7 (+1.1lbs) My body has totally decided to take a break from this weightloss thing I honestly don't mind a whole lot, I don't think my weight is that bad if I dropped a bit more in BF% - I use small/medium clothes and I can see that my body is changing despite my weight staying pretty much the same. Started with crossfit and did a WOD today - Looking forward to more. Stayed under calories. Even if it doesn't look like it from this round's weightloss, I weigh everything I put in my mouth and stick to my calorie goal.
10/29 - 160.7 (-0.9lbs) There we go! 🌟
10/30 - 160.2 (-1.4lbs) Yay 🙏🏻 Ate under calories and went for a walk.
10/31 - 159.6 (-2lbs) Did an hour of HIIT training and went for a walk.
11/01 - 159.1 (-2.5lbs) Did an hour of Crossfit and went a little over calories. Ate more carbs than usual, so surprised to not see more water retention.
11/02 - 159.3 (-2.3lbs) Goal reached and I’m happy with this round 😄 See you next round 🌟

10/24 150.2 I have a feeling todays drop is from being dehydrated. I stayed within calories yesterday, and did a 1mile brisk walk.
10/25 149.6 Stayed within calories.
10/26 149.4 Stayed within calories, but had too much sodium. Roasted pumpkins seeds yesterday. Boy those are hard to resist!
10/28 149.0 Baby steps, but I'll take it
10/31 DNW I know my weight will be up today. Covered in hives from an antibiobic I was taking for a sinus infection, so I'm also taking an antihistamine.
11/1 149.2 Just hanging in there. Staying within calories
11/2 149.0 Goal reached, -2.2 lbs. Looking forward to next round5
I got care free in maintenance and the scale went up one lb at a time. Now I’m turning it around one lb at a time.
11/2- 179.0 just sticking to the plan. Reminding myself I spent the last three years slowly creeping up and I’ve stopped that creep. That is a success.
Late dinner out on the books for tonight, I’m going to have to be careful today to keep myself at a loss for this round.5
SW: 127.4 on 10/23/22
10/24 125.2 -(added after a late morning weight after I forgot first thing. Guess I was retaining quite a bit of water). “Forgot” to step on the scale this morning. I also "forgot" to finish out the last round but I think it would have been a gain of 2 lbs! I have been really off track but I've been giving myself grace for the past week in the wake of the grandfather's death. No more of that, though, as I don't want to have to start over entirely. The service was very nice on Friday and gave me closure, and I was happy to see my dad was handling everything pretty well. I'm sure he'll have his ups and downs, but I think we all knew Grandaddy was ready to move on at the age of 97. This week I'm traveling for work Wednesday through Friday, then it will be Halloweekend with lots of parties so it's sure to be a challenging round for me again. I can do it, though!
10/25 - 125.4. Rough day here as my 20-month-old popped a fever overnight. He seems to be doing better, but the timing stinks because I leave for the airport at 4am tomorrow for a business trip. Very grateful my mom is still coming to help out. I’m 95% sure she already has been exposed to this via my nephew anyway. DH and I are going on a date to see Weird Al about 45 minutes from home tonight, so I’m really going to be burning the candle at both ends. I only hope the toddler can sleep through, unlike last night.
10/26 - 124.4! I don’t expect to stay here but it feels good to bust through 125. All of my sleep was in the recliner with my restless toddler, until about midnight to 3am. Then I couldn’t sleep due to travel anxiety until my alarm at 4, plus the kiddo needed me again. It’s going to be a rough day.
10/27 - DNW - travel. Shortly after I posted yesterday my dad called me and told my grandma had passed away. That's both of his parents within a week and a half. I'm a little shaken up. They were married for 75 years so maybe it's just the perfect ending to their love story. I was in the middle of my layover when I got the call. I'm kind of glad I got the call while enroute because if I'd heard about it on Tuesday night I may have yet again postponed my trip. But between this and the sick baby I am feeling like I shouldn't be here at all. I really have to make it through the study I'm doing today, though. I'm getting home at midnight on Friday and we have to drive to my hometown yet again for a funeral Saturday.
10/28 - travel
10/29 - 125.6
10/30 - 124.8. Thank you everyone for the kind words and condolences. The funeral was a little harder than I expected. I have many fond memories of her, mostly from childhood playing games on her living room floor and going on walks with her when she would still walk around her neighborhood. She was probably the first person to model the necessity of exercise to me. Unfortunately she started having a lot of foot problems many years ago, and now I know how difficult that must have been for her. Her funeral service was basically a carbon copy of my grandfather’s. It was closed casket but we got to view her before the visitation, and she looked beautiful and peaceful.
The toddler has hand-foot-and-mouth disease, so we didn’t get to go to the dinner my dad hosted. Instead, we drove home and didn’t spend the night, which honestly I am grateful for because our house is in total shambles after all the chaos. I am going to make a meal plan for the week now. I hope everyone has a restorative Sunday.
10/31 - 126. Not too surprised. I have fallen off the wagon in many ways this round. I got into my 3-year-old's candy that he got from the drive-through trick or treat we went to. My challenge for November is going to be rationing my own candy intake *and* my kids' candy intake. I'm adding in more strength training starting today. Assuming I can have somewhat productive work sessions, I'm planning a good amount of activity for myself including: 30-minute dog walk/jog, 45-minute peloton ride, 10-minute arms with light weights, and a 10-minute core workout.
11/1 - 126 again. OMG candy. My kids collected so much last night, and I really struggle with stopping at a single serving. I guess the only answer is to skip it all together. I did not start my strength training yesterday, so I'll start today! Update: I did it! Twenty minutes of pilates
11/2 - 125.4. Disappointed I didn’t make my goal of 125. Onward!5

Round 202 Posts
This is my posting format….
Month/Day: Scale Reading - First thing today after bathroom visit before getting dressed.
/ Exercise – yesterday / Comment
/walking/ Can’t believe it is a new round already. This round there will be some of the dreaded Halloween candy in the house.
/…/ Nothing much to report
/a little walk/ These readings do not jive with what I have been eating. They should be higher.
Getting ready for a weekend with friends at their lake cottage. Hopefully we will get a little hiking in to go along with the great food. Maybe some fishing too.
/nothing/ A long weekend of feasting capped with a bowl of candy. I am having a hiccup. Time to buckle down.
10/23: 215 Starting weight at end of last round.
/Spinning and stretching/ Average weight gain this round. Good news, Halloween candy is behind me.

10/24-124.1- (1 LB gain may be due to fried food the night before)
10/29-122.7 (diagnosed with covid)
11/02-122.1 Pizza last night This will be my last day of the Covid pills, still testing positive. Overall I am feeling better (have my appetite back) However, every night I wake up with the worse sore throat, I stay up long enough to drink a cup of warm lemon water which gives enough relief for a few hours of sleep, and I then repeat the process. I really would love a full night's sleep. I will call my doctor today to see if they have any suggestions. All in all, this has been a good 10 days!!
HSW: - 9/16/2022 – 235 lbs.
UGW: 150 lbs.
R201 EW: 225.2 lbs.
R202 EW: 223.4 lbs.
10/24 223.8 lbs.
10/25 222.4 lbs. I am having a love hate relationship with the daily weigh ins. I hate to see the up and down fluctuations. I love that the fluctuations teach me how my body is reacting to the things I do and eat. I can usually look at my food log and see what is going on.
10/26 223 lbs.
10/27 223 lbs. I have been fairly good with my exercising but have been slightly over on my food intake the last couple of days.
10/28 223.4 lbs.
10/29 222.4 lbs.
10/30 221.8 lbs.
10/31 222 lbs. I went to the doctor today for a follow up and it was such a wonderful change to be able to tell her all the positive changes I have been making since the last visit. She was pleased as well. My only problem is that she doesn’t think I should lose the weight that I would like to lose. She said that as you get older if you are slim you end up having more injuries. Don’t get me wrong I will be thrilled to get down to 180lbs. but I don’t envision that as my end goal. I guess we will have to look at it again when I get there.
11/1 222.4 lbs.
11/2 223 lbs. This is not what I had hoped for but, at least it is slightly lower than 10 days ago.
10/24 - 176.4 Salty dinner but in calorie budget. Will try to drink extra today.
10/25 - 176.2 Ate every last calorie in my budget yesterday and lost a small bit. I can live with this. I need to cut down on the salt tho.
10/26 - 175.8 Ok, back to the start and ready to post a loss for this round.
10/27 - 176.0 No biggie. Just have to cut back a little.
10/28 - 175.4
10/29 - 175.8
10/30 - 176.0
10/31 - 176.2 Definitely going the wrong way.
11/1 - 176.2 What the heck! Cut waaaay back yesterday and stayed the same. Could have at least had a .2 loss.
11/2 - 175.8 No loss for the round but no gain. Ready for the next round. Let's GO!5
You don't have to be perfect, you just have to be better than you were before

11/02 - 160.5 - Gotta love stress and how it impacts the body. TOM finally showed up. Kinda. Enough to help with the bloat. I'm still dealing with some of it, but the worst of it (read: the uncomfortable bloat) is mostly gone. I am, however, dealing with a bad bout of acne. Patience is not currently a virtue for me and I want my body to cooperate hahahah. I think we are on the backend of it and things will slowly get better from here. I was just barely over calories yesterday (about 50?) including the very little "exercise cals" I had. Today should be better. I forced myself up for a 10 minute rowing workout (with a couple minutes warmup and cooldown) followed by a yoga for flexibility. I'm not hungry so hoping to fast for awhile. I have a bunch of spinach I need to use up (I already added it to my breakfast eggs and then dinner tacos yesterday) but I've still got so much. I also have my sweet potatoes I need to eat up, too. Lunches should be pretty well covered, health-wise.
Previous Day's Comments10/24 - Not the worst for a weekend bump. Linner turned into dinner last night and all the sides brought me closer to calorie goal than I originally anticipated. I attempted to estimate logging, but could be off as with anything made by others. I did manage no alcohol, though! And only ate until I was comfortably satisfied and no more! Little things that will keep me on track. I also did a 10 minute bedtime yoga routine before curling up in bed which got me my 3 days of workouts. New week starts today with a 10 minute rowing workout followed by 15 minute flexibility yoga. Not sure plans for lunches or dinners this week but I haven't gone to the store. Trying to focus on paying off debt and limit the grocery bill to only as necessary. No fresh fruits or veggies so I think I'll add frozen fruits and veg to my list for the future. I do have some canned veg as well as the steamable packs to get through until my next trip. On to the weekly routine and (hopefully) progress!!
10/25 - Only thing I can think of is that dinner was a bit more salty than I prefer last night.... That and I'm pretty sore, mostly upper body/back but a little in the lower legs from yesterday's rowing workout. No workout this morning due to the soreness. May aim for a little yoga later on. Not entirely sure dinner other than BF pulled out some fajita chicken meat (he makes fajitas, burritos, and tacos from it). I splurged with breakfast as I was hungry and ate a piece of pumpkin bread I made over the weekend with my coffee. I've been craving coffee cake, but the bread is lower calories and less sugar. Plus, for someone who hates pumpkin flavor, it's not terribly bad! Will need to up the movement through the day as well as watch my food intake very carefully if I want to see a drop tomorrow, though. I have lunch planned (the frozen steam bags of broccoli with some of the chicken breast from yesterday's lunch), and logged both lunch and what I KNOW will be involved with dinner to give me a good idea of how close I am. Totally doable!
10/26 - It's down but not as much as I had hoped. Had to estimate calories on a chicken caesar salad from a bar/grill (it was the best caesar salad I've had). Went there after dropping truck off and hearing there's a high chance it'll be done by end of day. (Spoiler: it was not). Fortunately, it was so filling (and we ate so late) that I wasn't super hungry at dinner. I ended up only having one small taco which, by estimate, put me right at goals. And no exercise calories eaten back. Today BF promised to help FamHub and with only one vehicle (jeep has a flat) I will have to go into town with him to drive the car home if the truck gets finished. Tossed and turned all night so slept in an extra 30 minutes. No time for workout. Depending on what we help with at FamHub's (usually physical labor), I'll focus on squeezing in 10 squats here, 10 pushups there through the day to get that little strength building and movement. About to go pour my cup of coffee and I'll knock out 10 squats doing that to start the day strong!
10/27 - I really don't know.... I'm still a tad sore today but not enough to increase the scale... I'm honestly feeling horribly bloated, even if I don't look that bad. It seems too early for the pre-TOM bloat, but maybe? It's about all I can think of. I've been logging all my food, paying attention to portions, and drinking OVER my 90oz goal most days (and right on goal the other days). Yesterday I ended up having to do a lunch break grocery run since we were out of breakfast foods for today and tomorrow. I parked at the back of the parking lot and ran inside..not walked, I actually jogged. Walked with the grocery cart back to the car, loaded it and got a text asking for something. So I jogged back to the store, got what I needed, and it was small enough to hold so I jogged the entire parking lot back to my car. 3 parking lot distance runs in one day. Whew. This morning I went ahead and knocked out a 20 min complete rowing workout so I couldn't distract myself or procrastinate until it was too late. On a happy note, I got a big ol' thing of baby spinach and some extra bell peppers so I can make myself some healthier breakfasts and lunches. I'll turn my leftover tacos into taco salad haha! I'll add spinach and bell pepper to my eggs!

10/31 - Weekend was not kind to me. Eating out all day Saturday then spur of the moment meals Sunday as we did some much needed house work while watching football (new dining room light installed, got a wall back up behind washer and dryer. Whew). Today I'm sore, slightly dehydrated still (despite having enough water yesterday, it takes a few days), and I'm all kinds of bloated. I expected TOM to be here by today but it's having a grand ol' time keeping me feeling bloated and miserable as long as possible I'm guessing. No workout as my body needs a break after yesterday's manual labor. Will be trying to get up and move through the day, though, just to help move some of the water I'm retaining. Already ate breakfast so no fasting for me. Will have to plan lunch accordingly as I'm not sure dinner plans yet. Fortunately, no trick or treaters this far out into the country so no halloween candy in the house. I'm in full-on damage control for the last days of this round for sure.
11/01 - Still no TOM, still excessively bloated, and still very much uncomfortable. I am not sure what's going on with my body at this point. I'm rightfully impatient this go around. We ended up going to Fam's for homemade gumbo then trick or treating with the kiddos. I tossed together a Wednesday Addams look from the Addams Family (didn't have time or opportunity to buy anything. Fortunately I have the hair!) and walked around with them. Last night's dinner was going to be homemade burgers (with homemade buns! Wheee) but not sure if we are changing it up to "Taco Tuesday" today and forgetting burgers. I do have some sweet potatoes I roasted yesterday I can add to lunch or dinner because I simply love them so much. I also bought a butternut squash (a fall favorite of mine) and an acorn squash. I've never had acorn or spaghetti squash but it was a goal of mine to try at least one of them this year. I might have to find a good recipe and make it up for lunch. Alright, it's 6:30 already, I need to get some yoga in before work at 7. Hopefully today is the day I can catch up on posts, too.

10/24 - 178.6
Carry over from my grief splurge. This too shall pass. I’m hoping to get out for a long walk on our beautiful Rivergreenway.

Pitch-in lunch yesterday with my creative group. I did skip dinner, but also ate well at lunch and some of it was salty. Mostly healthy, though, so that was good. I think a lot of this is H2O. On track today.
10/27 - 176.8
Yay! I knew a lot of that weight was water.
10/28 - 176.8
Nothing to report! 🤪
10/29 - 176.6
I’m doing much better controlling my snack monster at night. Yay!
10/30 - 176.2
Ok, something’s working!
10/31 - 🎃 177
Pizza last night, and calories a bit high, but not catastrophic. And I haven’t touched the Halloween candy, so there’s that!
11/01 - 176.4
That’s better. I feel like I beat Halloween. I had one mini PayDay bar, which satisfied my desires, and was still within calories.
11/02 - 176.6
Ok, good round! I finally feel like I’m back on track. I hadn’t realized until the past two weeks how much Rory’s fear/anxiety and resulting behavior issues were stressing me, and how much of my snacking was a response to that stress. New goal — be below 170 by January 1. Very doable, even with the holidays.
@SheilaBoneham I never realized until recently how stress was affecting me.

We ALL have good rounds and bad but that is part of life. Don’t stay away, stay accountable. We don’t judge, we support.-Jpv,2/13/19
What we need to succeed is a sustainable way of eating, not a DIET we go on and off.
People say keto/LCHF isn’t sustainable. I’ve been doing it for almost 5 years with amazing results!
This is NOT A DIET. It’s a LIFESTYLE.

10/24 122.0 Today was my art quilt group. I left the house at 8:30 and got home around 2:30. Lots of sitting and driving!
10/25 122.0 My glucose and ketones were great this morning considering we had McRib and fries for dinner! DH read they’re back - maybe for the last time and wanted to see if they were as good as the first time - decades ago at the Riverboat McDonald’s in St. Louis. They’re not.
10/26 122.5 Went to brunch at Omelet House, ate 1 slice of sourdough and some fried potatoes as well as about 1/4 of my 6 egg Chile verde omelet.
10/28 123.0 I was 123.5 when I got up but after 6 cups of coffee and TMI x 2, I reweighed. That’s not something I usually do but I felt lighter.
10/29 123.5 Had pot roast and veg (no potatoes for me) for the first time in months. Not DH’s favorite-he tolerates it on occasion because I like it. ❤️ Doctor wasn’t happy with my BP, med asst said “those cuffs aren’t very accurate” before she even checked my BP which is ALWAYS up in office however, I showed her that it was within a couple of points of their machine and my BP is good when not there. He said I had only taken the one med for “a couple of days” but I had taken it for about 2 YEARS (he initiated it) when I realized it was the cause of my vertigo. Added another med which I wasn’t able to pick up when I was headed home from errands in the afternoon. Sorry for the rant - not checking BP now!!!
10/30 123.0 Took new BP med last night. Not excited about possible side effects especially since the pharmacist said because I had a previous allergic reaction to a CCB I need to watch for it. Plus “peripheral swelling” is on the list.Sorry for another rant. This whole thing is making my BP go up!!!!
10/31 123.5 Great Greek yesterday, ate half a pita. Had a headache yesterday afternoon and it was worse when I woke up this morning. Not my “normal” arthritis headache but may be gone now. Awake at 4:30AM
