What am I Weighting For?

I'm still feeling nauseas. For some people that would help with weight loss. For me, not so much.

I'm one of those odd people who eat more when they're feeling sick.  This time around, I'm trying to resist that, to keep reminding myself that binge eating doesn't make the nausea go away, it might settle it momentarily but then makes it a hundred times worse. (Peppermint tea is a much better option than tons of food.)

Weight Loss Group starts again on Thursday, and when I weighed myself yesterday, I weighed exactly the same as I did six weeks ago when we went into recess because everyone was going on holidays. I guess that could be worse, but it's not good either.

So, back to what I should have been doing all along: tracking everything I eat on Calorie King, and (when my nausea will permit me to get out of bed), getting properly back into my exercise routine.

I'm still struggling with problems of fluid retention - getting headaches again which suggests that the fluid tablets aren't keeping it under control. On top of that there's issues with a number of my medications being known to put on weight. This all makes it hard, but if I work at it, should not be impossible, to lose weight.

My next appointment with the GP is tomorrow - hopefully, she can help with whatever is going on with my stomach. (Otherwise, the rheumatologist is still three weeks away, if I need him to make major adjustments to medication.)
