#fearlessfridays are back!
Weird week all around. It is:
* Whale 🐳 Week and I’m all weepy and anxiety ridden…
* Storms have been here for 3 days and I have felt really rough and been struggling a lot physically…
* Didn’t eat yesterday at all and only a little the day before which absolutely has contributed to this loss…
I hurt from head to toe… But I’m still here, still trying, still pushing through…
Health wise – the lower oxalates continue to be making huge improvements in my general wellbeing – storms kicking up the Fibromyalgia and Mast Cell reactions aside, I am doing better than I have in years.
Today starts Week 9 of 12 – no food changes really except to hopefully feel like playing with my food again soon.

Plan: Currently tracking in ℹ️ iTrackBites on Calorie Command
If you aren’t familiar with my situation, basically I live with several autoimmune issues… an “inflammatory overstimulation response” brought on by my basic blood cells thinking they are Spartan Warriors and attacking everything in sight.
More information about what is wrong as well as the resources I’m using to track histamines and oxalates are here:
[Mast Cell Activation Syndrome or MCAS is my main issue but also fun things like Fibromyalgia, POTS, Histamine Intolerance, Insulin Resistance and on and on… ]
WILD WEIGHT SWINGS
My weight fluctuations are not water weight, not sodium retention and the gains do not go away until the cells calm down and the actual muscle inflammation decreases.
When a flare happens, everything swells – my eyes, my hands/feet, my actual muscle tissue and organs … I can, and do, put on up to 20lbs in a bad flare and this can take 3-4 weeks to lose again.
Foods, chemicals, weather changes, environmental elements… literally, sometimes just existing, fires them up. Some things I can control and otherwise it is a #justkeepswimming kinda life.
