That's a good sign. That really sounds like you are losing fat and gaining muscle. The same weight of muscle doesn't have as much volume as fat.

I'm going through a spat of wanting to eat everything. Not sure what I am searching for, but....

I do know I am having a problem with anemia right now, but I have an iron supplement and have been eating iron rich foods. Maybe my new lipid medications are working to well and I am searching for fat...

I think we are sort of at the same place. I had new blood work done and I am still anaemic. I am taking an iron supplement, eating as many iron rich foods as I can, and craving everything I shouldn't have like ice cream, bacon, etc. I am really hoping my sciatica will let up and I can go to the pool in the morning.

It really doesn't help that most of my favorite candies are in the stores now for Easter...

Reeses Peanut Butter Eggs...

I'm not dieting per se, but back around Thanksgiving as I was getting ready to head back to OH to spend Christmas with our kids, I decided that if we were going to move back to OH eventualy I also had to move back to my OH weight. When we moved to MA I started up with depression eating...and gained 40 pounds.

All I've done since the beginning of December is eat less of everything, along with swapping out some better foods for a few items I had been eating. I've hardly noticed the difference in my eating, but I have noticed the scale creeping down the numbers. Tried a bunch of old clothes on last week so that I can finally make the trip to Salvation Army and was able to add a few "new" clothes back to my rotation! Only ten pounds gone in those 3 1/2 months, but I've noticed more energy and less joint pain. It's amazing what a small change can do. Baby steps, but at least I'm trying.

I feel like I have been low on iron myself lately. I bought some iron supplements at the store & it has helped some w my energy levels. You mentioned you were eating iron rich foods. What kinds of foods? I know beef 7 egg yolks are high in iron but I cannot tolerate either very well. I have been trying to eat more spinach, fresh broccoli & beans. I would be very interested to hear any other options.
