There’s nothing like being gluten free, dairy free and not losing a single pound. I drank lots of water. I went to spin class twice in a week and also walked the dog for kilometres and didn’t lose one pound. I have even cut my coffee intake by about 50%. If I take my supplements too close to a meal, I get incredibly nauseous and bloated so badly I can’t even walk…so I can only take them before I go to bed now. To celebrate nothing changing, I ate a Lindt chocolate bar with caramel. Everyone else I hear that goes gluten free loses 15 pounds and feels like a million bucks. True, I have not kicked the sugar habit in the slightest but even when I was on Weight Watchers, I never went sugar free and I still lost weight. So I figure my calorie intake is the issue and since my naturopath suggests I never go 3 hours without eating, this could be my problem. I distinctly remember the hungry and grumbly feeling in my tummy by 8pm and that’s how I lost weight before. I went to bed early a lot.
I’m discouraged and want to eat chips. Now I have the cold my son and husband have been so gracious to share with me. Oh, and according to an ultrasound I had last week, my fibroids are back. I don’t know to what extent yet as my doctor’s office hasn’t joined the modern age and can’t scan it and email me the results so I will wait for the snail mail. I take it that it’s not so dire to merit a return visit to my GP. I still have to be referred to a gynecologist to go over my options. My resolve is being tested, I see. I want to move forward and make changes, but my body keeps slowing me down. What’s up with that?
