Working on keeping on, keeping on. If you have seen my videos this week, I have been feeling a little rough… Nothing out of the ordinary, just general me + meds/weather stuff. So I was pleasantly surprised by a loss this week! Rock on!

I am also trying a new supplement a friend suggested – it’s supposed to help with Insulin Resistance, high blood pressure and cholesterol etc… I am unfamiliar with it but I’m going to try it. It arrived today and I’m starting it in replacement of the 5 others I am currently taking to manage the same issues… We will see what happens in a month.

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.
