Yes, 20 pounds of fluid.  I was having a very hard time breathing and no energy at all! I am recovering from pnuemonia.  My blood tests returned also with borderline CHF with liver enzymes in the high normals.  My blood sugars for once was 113.  I am a DM2. I had just let myself go since getting married one year ago.  I have tried many diet plans and pills in the past.  No more!  Now is the healthy way.  I have placed myself on a 1200-1500 calorie daily diet with eating up to 300 calories every 3 hours.  I am also pushing fluids up to 128 oz daily.  I began this journey yesterday and have lost another 2 pounds of fluid and already feel so much better!  I was only able to get in 1100 calories yesterday.  Eating every 3 hours was different for me, and I found myself not getting that hungry.  This plan I may be able to stick with.  I eat some type of protein, fruits and vegetables every 3 hours.  I have also given up diet cokes, (I was addicted), and have decided to also give up drinking booze for awhile.  I never was a heavy drinker though. My goals are mini goals.  To focus on each day at a time, 1 pound at a time, until I reach my big goal of 145lbs.  Then, I will see where I want to go from there.
