WEIGH IN RESULTS
🐸 Starting Weight: 298.8lbs
🦋 Current Weight: 257.4lbs
🦄 This Week: -7.2lbs
NEW WEEK, NEW MONTH
I love when things line up like this… 🤣
Nothing much different this week. My inflammation is subsiding (after an +11.8lb poof last week). I have been pretty on point with calories and started taking the GOLO supplements regularly which I do think are at least helping settle things down. I am trying them for 60 days and will see what my labs look like in January.
Even with Thanksgiving and lunch at a Chinese Buffet, I managed no real flare ups and the weather is, for the most part, playing nice. It was a good week.
I am going to try something different weigh in wise for a bit. I am still weighing daily (tracking my inflammation) and it is shown on the bottom of my tracker for the day on my blog each night.
But in terms of like official weigh ins – I’m just going to record every 1st of the month. People get surprisingly upset/rude if they don’t know me or my situation and see a big gain or loss… I’ve just gotten tired of explaining and feeling bad about it so…
NEXT WEIGH IN
This is the supplement I’m trying. They have a recommended eating plan as well (which I am not following due to my specific restrictions) and a great Facebook support group.
I don’t know them, am not affiliated with them but am just going to try it for myself…

Plan: Calorie Command using the 🦋 Healthi app
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.
