Well, I did not lose a single pound the entire second week. The good news is, I’ve lost 2 more pounds this week, bringing the total to 10 pounds.
Now, week 2 sucked. My RA was up and down, my brain was foggy, I had a couple of dizzy spells (I think caused by lack of hydration), etc…. Minus the RA part, my husband was having similar issues. I get brain fog frequently, which seems to go with my RA. This was highly unusual for him, and he didn’t like it. He bailed on the diet on day 15. So, he’s still supporting me, which I appreciate, but he’s had to add some other things into his diet to make it work.
The last 3 days, my brain has cleared, my cravings are quite minimal, but my body is still not settled. Although my swelling seems less, my pain seems the same or a tad worse. On top of that, my neck keeps getting out of allignment, which doesn’t seem to be related to RA. My pains are very different than typical. Part of me wonders if swelling is down, so that makes tendons and muscles loose and not supportive. Time will tell.
In the meantime, I’m more than half way to my 30 day goal. I’ve discovered that both blueberries and/or blackberries make a salad delicious, and my son thinks so too.
More to come!
