Last weekend was OK, from a low carb perspective, consumed a gutful of scotch and diet coke on Friday night and had nothing else I shouldn't have all weekend!
I feel crap though, think I have a wog or something (I am hoping this is what's wrong with me). I went to work today and only lasted four hours or so and had to come home. The concerning thing was that I was feeling pressure across my chest, pain down my right arm, hot and cold sweats and a hell of a headache.
Some of these symptoms could suggest something I do not even want to think about - so I hope it wasn't that. The trouble is there is a history of coronary disease in my family, so I hope I am not the next person it affects.
At work I didn't want to make a fuss, just said I was feeling sick and went home, I almost went to the Emergency Department at the local hospital but thought I would try to have a sleep and see if things improved. I didn't get any sleep but the chest tightness isn't as bad and the pains and sweating have stopped, just leaving me with a crappy headache, which isn't going away.
The information on this heart diagram above provides a timely reminder that loosing this excess weight is not an option for me.... It's something I need to do or I mightn't be around long term :(
