Dizzy?
Posted Sunday, July 29, 2012 at 5:47 PM

I accidently put this in the January forum. I'm still trying to figure out how to do this! Then, I saw where it was better to put your post in the most recent forum so I hope it is ok to post twice. Is there a way to delete a post?

I couldn't wait until September to start the 21 day kickstart so I bought the book. I am on day 21 today. I have lost about 6 lbs and my blood pressure is much better. Several times during the past 3 weeks I have experienced transient dizzy spells. They don't seem related to my blood sugar, no shaky, trembly, "sinking" feeling. Any ideas? I have on occasion had dizzy spells, but these are much worse. Thanks.

May I ask, within how many weeks did you lose 6 pounds?

If you have a lot of weight to lose, 6 pounds in 3 weeks is fine. If you do not have a lot to lose, you may not be eating enough, which could possibly be leading to the dizziness. Also eating throughout the day as opposed to waiting for hours to eat could be better for you.

If it continues, I would consider checking in with your health care professional. It certainly could not hurt.

Thanks, I thought I was eating enough, not really hungry, but will gladly eat more Very Happy I only needed to lose about 15-20 lbs. I think most of what I have lost was fluid. My legs are alot skinnier but my clothes are not much looser. I am mostly doing this to help my BP and my cholesterol. I don't want to have to take meds if possible.
