Anyway, I made it through a day without going berserk on sweets, with more to come, I think. 150.6 this morning. I had huge water retention yesterday - my feet and ankles swelled up so much that I could feel the swelling while putting in the clutch on the nearly-endless commute home. Not gone this morning, to look at my left ankle. No idea what caused it.
- scrambled eggs
- tea with cream
- the usual supplements
- beef jerky
- a very few Godiva pearls
- Qdoba naked burrito with no rice or beans, double shredded beef, guacamole, sour cream, and cheese
- iced tea
- a sugarless (maltitol-sweetened) chocolate
- two raspberries and a strawberry, from the garden
I'm switching menopause support products, to one that is soy-free. While the Estroven seems to help, I am just not comfortable about eating more soy products. The new stuff is taken twice a day, and the bedtime dose includes melatonin, to help with sleep. I think it did help, and may still be helping - I was pretty groggy this morning and am fighting now to stay upright. I plan on taking the evening dose a bit earlier tonight - perhaps around 8:30. I do hope it works at least close to as well as the Estroven; the thought of returning to the feeling of almost being ill with each flash is not pleasant.
