Weight is Up - Body Fat % is Down
Wednesday, March 30, 2011
My abdomen (ovaries? fibroid tumors?) has been swollen and in pain since Sunday. Usually when I experience this pain it subsides the next day but not this time. When I was 30 I was diagnosed with fibroid tumors that line my uterus and the doctors wanted to do a hysterectomy but since I had never had a child, I wouldn't let them. Since I rarely have problems, I still feel I made the wisest decision allowing my body to produce it's natural estrogen.
I'm preparing to call my gynecologist for an examination appointment.
My scale measures weight, hydration & body fat percentages.
This morning's weigh-in shows quite a gain in weight this week and in my hydration levels; However, my body fat percentage is lower so I assume that I am losing fat but retaining water weight around my area of pain.
I hate my stupid body... I tried to do cardio yesterday but only got 10 min in before I doubled-over in pain.
Now I'm off to the gym to do my weight-training circuit and hope I can get through it. Still DETERMINED to do all the right things so it will pay off in the end!
