This past week was bad, really bad. My body starts malfunctioning on me on the worst week of the month (if you know what I mean) so needless to say I didn't have any expectations and didn't see any results. Same weight as last week which I normally would find frustrating but now I feel rather neutral about.
The one thing that had me concerned was my blood pressure, last week I noticed it was a bit higher than normal. I have really normal blood pressure so I can tell when something isn't quite right.
Before I was diagnosed with Graves disease my blood pressure was out of control as my heart was beating out of my chest. I was tired all the time, etc... That was the reason that I was hospitalized originally, then they ran a series of test and diagnosed me with Graves and had to have the radiation iodine treatment them. Before I was put on Synthroid, I was put on heart medication to calm my heart. I was on that medication for at least six months and I was restricted to not exercise.
As had a doctors appointment last week I wasn't too concerned as I was going in for a checkup but if I weren't I'd definitely seek medical help. I wasn't feeling good at all and didn't exercise for five days straight which is probably the longest I've not exercised since joining weight watchers.
As I suspected, my medicine was lowered and I'm now down to a lower dose of Synthroid (from 150 to 125). I've been on the new medicine for two days now so it'll be some time before everything gets back to normal. I felt a bit better yesterday and was able to exercise. Hope to follow the routine this week and wait until the new dosage takes effect.
