Jamaica4god's Journal, 24 March 2011

Appointment day today. All my nerves were for today, but I have my hope and faith in God, so if she offers little to us, I will accept that and move on.

At least I had a new number on the scale this morning!! Woohoo!! I'm just praying it's actual fat loss and not muscle loss because my muscles have gotten so weak and last night was the first night in quite a while that I was up all night with horrific muscle pain in my legs, which is usually a sign of muscle damage, but can sometimes happen if I just over-do it or don't eat enough.

My doc, in her email, reassured me that my weight loss efforts will not hurt my already weak muscles or mess around with this disease, but I'm not so sure that is true. There are a lot of mitochondrial disease specialists that suggest you don't do all this because any loss of energy can damage muscles, nerves and brain. Grrr. Just one more question for the individual who puts a name to the ugly face of this disease.

I guess my concern over muscle loss instead of fat loss is that in the pictures my husband took, there is not a great deal of difference in the fatty areas of my body. SOme areas are smaller like my face and neck, but that's pretty much it, so I am concerned where the 33 pounds I have lost altogether is coming from.


Here's hoping that you had a good visit with the doctor and get some good news!!
