When I got on the scale this morning, I had lost 2 1/2 to 3 pounds since yesterday. I couldn’t see very well, because the scale I bought was the cheap kind, with tiny lines, that are hard to see from way up where my eyes are. Losing 2 to 3 pounds was a surprise to me, since I did not go hungry on day one, nor did I have any unusual bathroom runs (no pun intended).
Today I followed about the same routine, but substituted two zucchini for the yellow squash, and added a large handful of lush dandelion greens and a little handful of clover in my smoothie. I was tempted by the pizza my family had at dinner, but not too badly. What surprised me was that I forgot to take my Sertraline until about 3 pm and did not notice any nerve pain.
I read more in the book “Medical Medium” about the Epstein Barr virus. According to the author, it is a contributor to many of the mystery illnesses people suffer from, like chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia. I want to start using the specific herbs he recommends for Hashimoto’s disease as well as for Lyme’s disease, since those are the specific ones I am, and may be, dealing with. I am curious to see if I will show any weight loss tomorrow.
