Result of todays tracking experiment: I’m basically eating at maintenance (for my larger self that is). But throw in weekends (oh beer why must you betray me) and therein lies the weight gain problem. 

I’m not really sure when I started eating/drinking whatever I want … ok that’s a lie … it probably started about a month ago with my birthday.  

No more.  I don’t have the metabolism of a teenage boy.  My body packs it on like I’m going into hibernation.  

My birthday month did some serious damage. I’m not sure how much I weigh, but I bet it’s higher than my highest weight. not cool.

World Thrombosis Day is October 13th.  And since I’m likely to forget this when it’s actually the official “day”, here’s the infographic that was posted on the WTD website.

As a personal story to this, I had my first PE while I was in my early 20s, I was on oral birth control pills.  I had a second PE after treatment for the first one, and I had genetic testing that showed I was heterozygous for Factor V Leiden, the most common of genetic clotting disorders.  I was put on blood thinner and had an inferior vena cava filter put in to prevent further PE that may come from DVTs in my legs.  However, due to other health issues, I was taken off blood thinner for a while, and I developed a DVT, which then clotted my filter, and the clot on the filter broke off and became a very large PE, which very nearly killed me.  I am now on lifelong blood thinner, and I haven’t had any further blood clots.

It’s incredibly important for people to know the risks and signs of blood clots, and how to prevent them.  Prior to having one, I was only vaguely aware of the fact PEs and DVTs were a thing, and I didn’t really know the symptoms.

Reblogging because this is really relevant. The past three years of my life have been a roller coaster due to my mom’s health issues and nonstop hospital visits associated with this (she has factor v leiden and lupus anticoagulant and is on blood thinners for life). I only inherited the lupus anticoagulant (thankfully?) and am not on blood thinners (yet, but hopefully never). It’s because of this that my hematologist freaked out on me and made me get off hormonal birth control. And it’s why I finally got paraguard (non hormonal copper iud).

Living a healthy life is important to me for a lot of other reasons … In case you were wondering.…
