Changed up my lifestyle

Tuesday, April 20, 2021

So I’m not sure if I’ve ever shared that I have gout. I was diagnosed at 25 and have been living with it for years. In December my Father in law passed away and the day after his funeral I had the worst gout attack in my life!! It lasted for almost 2 months. During the attack I changed up my diet. I am now a low purine vegetarian. Since I made the change back in February, I have lost 17 pounds as of today. The thing that really sucks is if I lose weight too quickly it can bring on a gout attack so, I haven’t added working out to it yet. One day at a time.

    Great encouragement for me as I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid arthritis 8 years ago. It really is one day at a time.
