🐸 Starting Weight: 298.8lbs
🦋 Current Weight: 254.4lbs
🦄 This Week: – 6.0lbs
A few weeks ago, I weighed on Friday at 250.6 but by the time I had my Dr appointment on Monday I was 260.6 with an inflammatory flare and last weeks weigh in was 260.4 (so a +9.8lb gain).
We adjusted some meds based on my bloodwork results and I am back to taking some of the meds and supplements I had stopped for this exact reason… They cause major poofity poof poofs… So I knew it was coming.
There was a 30° temperature swing with some storms which always flares things up as well so I knew it would be a bit rough but it is starting to subside.
Last week was the final week of my 12 week reset. I have a few more things to test this week but overall it has given me some valuable insights that I think will be very helpful moving forward!

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 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.
