MONTHLY WEIGH IN RESULTS
🐸 Starting Weight: 298.8lbs
🦋 Current Weight: 267.0lbs
Another killer month. Wild weather swings from the 70s to snow storms back to the 70s and then more snow. This triggered several inflammation flares.
Then I have really been struggling with my blood pressure and subsequently my breathing. If you’ve watched any of my recent videos you can hear it… It’s been difficult.
I restarted 3 blood pressure meds that I was on before but had stopped because of the side effects. Part of this is also a reaction to them but I can’t continue with my BP this high.
All in all – March was a big wash…
DECEMBER 1 – 257.4
JANUARY 1 – 251.2
FEBRUARY 1 – 247.4
MARCH 1 – 245.2

[Monitoring carbs for Insulin Resistance]
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, Oxalate Sensitivity 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 have, 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.
