Health Issues and Weight Loss Anxiety
I went to the doctor initially for abdominal pain and my white blood count came back low last week. I just got blood drawn to test for autoimmune stuff, but have yet to be diagnosed. Yesterday I found some small painful lumps in my neck, right around the same spot I had a thyroglossal cyst in high school.
In April I cut out sugar and flour. I started 2009 at 212 and weighed in at 181.3 on Friday. This is with minimal exercise.
I also started OA at the same time, so I know my eating and thinking about food has changed in other ways too.
On one hand I am happy about the weight loss, but on the other hand it is hard for me not to panic that maybe I am not losing weight because of dietary changes, but because of illness.
Could it be that now that I am a lot smaller, my top weight was 235, I feel better and my increased everyday movement- parking further from the store, not laying around all day...is making the weight come off faster than before with less effort?
I didn't think I would freak out so much about losing weight.
Has anyone else experienced panic and anxiety about their loss?
