Weight Loss & PM placement
Anyone lose weight after their PM & what did you do? Implanted 4/2019.
I've lost a decent amount of weight over the past year- about 40lbs. I think I was 180lbs when implanted; I'm now under 140lbs. It was mostly intentional- I lost some from ceasing antihistamines, realized I was under 160 last May, cut out most added sugars & picked up my walking. I *may be* still slowly losing, too. About 137lbs.
It's great! I'm 44yo & haven't looked like this since I was 20? But, there's excess skin & my PM is visible. It moves a little weirdly. My Cardio actually seemed disappointed in me that I'd lost weight (idk. I'm not too thin- im not thin lol.) He didn't bring up a PM issue, but I've been dealing with Chronic Idiopathic Pericardial Effusion since Jan 2021, have lots of appointments & echos.
Any feedback helpful. I do core exercises but have a hard time with anything hand or foot related due to "unstable joints" (no more planks, no balls of feet, etc.) It's almost like it can turn sideways if I lay on my side. Not totally, but it's weird. I'm not going back to eating crap just to gain weight. Still, it was implanted when my weight was solidly not budging (below 170 at my BEST.)
