    They have diuretic pills you can buy at the store...
    Cutting down on salt is one way to help..

    *one thing to watch is your heart and kidneys... have them checked out of you are retaining fluid... their may be some health issue that you arent aware of.. [​IMG]

[​IMG] I don't know that I am but I would not doubt it. I see it in my ankles some too, maybe but I need to make sure some of my weight is not from holding water. If it is it would drop off quickly if I fixed it. That is the plan.

    I make myself drink 64 ounces of water before I can have ANYTHING else. Works for me. And i have swelling issues.

    The pills available at the grocery or drug store work really well for this.

    But you have to drink a lot of water with them [​IMG]

    And... You'll have to tinkle a lot [​IMG] [​IMG]

It still makes me cranky that I am overweight, and all I drink is water. [​IMG] I have never liked soda, and I haven't Super-sized a meal in more years than I can remember. [​IMG]
