“In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different.” – Coco Chanel
Tuesday I began a strict 30 day eating plan because I’ve got doctor’s orders to lose weight. Today is day 5 and it’s already been such a rollercoaster!
I should explain why I have doctor’s orders to lose weight… Yes, I’m overweight. According to blood tests though, I’m perfectly healthy. I’m not on any medication and I don’t have a bad self image. BUT I do have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Spondylolisthesis which is a spinal condition. Due to these two conditions, my weight has become an issue and I need to rectify it. Even worse is that I was gradually putting on more and more weight. It would have eventually become an even bigger problem.
Day 1 as it turns out, was easy! Day 2 and 3 I struggled, bad! Day 4 was better (I did sleep for part of the day though, haha) until late afternoon, then my belly decided to rebel! It wasn’t bad and didn’t last long, it was also expected, so I wasn’t too worried. Today, I’m feeling much better. After another sleep in! I’m just going to keep busy.
I’m truly excited to see what the next 30 days brings. Giving up junk food when you have an addiction is hard but it’s for the best! And being able to fit into all my old clothes again… Well, that’s priceless!
I will have an update, hopefully with some results at around day 9. See you then!
My top tips? Get rid of all the bad food from th house, avoid temptation and stay busy!
