Friday's weigh-in was the same. 150.6. But, hey, no big. I lost anything I may have gained during PMS almost instantly. Everything still feels squishy. The agonizingly slow shrinking continues.
So do the chocolate cravings. I decided to go ahead and supplement magnesium. After looking at the symptoms of mag deficiency, I was surprised to see a list of lingering, unexplained problems I've been having for as long as I can remember. I have tremors in my hands, sleep issues, have to supplement about 1000mg of potassium a day or I gain weight and my blood pressure goes up. I struggle with constantly feeling tired. (And, of course, the chocolate cravings that get ridiculous.) All are symptoms. And I was on a diuretic for years, not to mention the greater majority of people are deficient.
I think my levels have improved since I switched my diet. I eat more nuts and avocados and much darker chocolate now in addition to all the spinach (sweetheart prefers it over lettuce as a salad base).
I snagged some magnesium threonate, which is highly bioavailable and actually crosses the blood brain barrier. Should be in the mail tomorrow.
