The scale and I are arguing again. My calorie ranges are excellent, so it's not what I'm eating. I think it's the anti-depressant I've been put on. It's also constipating me big time. I know, I know - TMI. But that's what you get when you come to my blog! Far too much information. Heh.
So, I've been drinking extra water and taking Colace. Not that it's helping much. Both my therapist and my doctor want me to give it more time. I'll wait to the end of the month then re-evaluate.
Also, oh happiness, oh joy. I had some blood work done and we discovered I'm insulin resistant. It's sort of pre-pre-diabetes. It means that eventually I *will* get diabetes unless I do something about it ASAP. Therefore, I'm going to start taking small steps toward reducing my carbohydrates. I'm not going low carb, but I do want to move toward the lower end of my range. Plus I'm going to add beans and more complex carbs.
Today I cooked up a batch of kidney beans for the first time. I'll try out 3/4 cup of beans with some brown rice, a bit of tomato sauce and a touch of Parmesan cheese for lunch tomorrow.
