So I started week 3 today.
Released another 3.5 pounds for a total of 12.5ibs in 2 weeks.
It didn't come easy.
My TOM was late and it was **** trying to start. I was sick and nauseous, thinking I might be pregnant instead. On Valentine's Day I was so ill I couldn't eat. Finally on the 15th, I started.
This was also the day we started moving into our new place. That morning my best friend and husband told me I was turning pale, so I downed an EAS Advantage shake (since all of my stuff was packed up) and took it easy after moving everything into the new garage.
I was weak the rest of the day. Come Saturday, I woke up bloated, swollen fingers, dry skin and bloated abdomen. I kept well hydrated throughout the move so it didn't make sense why I felt this way.
So for weigh in today, my hydration went from +2 last week to +20. Obviously holding onto water, no idea why outside of starting TOM. Kept getting side stitches in my sleep that felt like liver pain/quiver. They think my potassium might be too low.
Other personal things going on as well. Desiring to broaden my social circle more but struggling to find a way. Finding out my 6 year old niece is being abused at home by my sister while her dad is too scared of the retaliation to ignore the custody order to keep her out of harm's way. My heart is breaking and I've lost my appetite. I live 2 hours from my family so it's hard for me to be supportive long distance.
The move has been a huge distraction to work as well and I am not hitting my sales goals in February. I start back to work tomorrow after 4 days off. Trying to get into the right frame of mind after everything that has happened.
Whew, that was a mouthful. Thank you for letting me get that off of my chest. Looking forward to a better week 3.
