5 weeks in and I’m feeling better mentally and physically. Granted I could walk more for some exercise but rather wait for my stomach to be fully recovered at 6-7 weeks before I attempt further distances in this heat. I won’t get into specific numbers yet until I’m further in but so far a total of 20 pounds have been lost! Exciting.
I am starting believe it starts to get easier. As someone who sees the pros and cons of things it’s been easy to see both sides.
- Learning to eat slower
- Diet changes to eat healthier
- Portion changes
- Less time spent eating
- Less temptations to eat out
- Reevaluate my relationship with food
- Limited overall consumption of food or liquids
- Difficult to eat and drink (recommended to wait 30 min to an hour after eating to drink anything)
- Difficult to truly enjoy food all at once
- Learning curve when eating small amounts
A lot of the cons are mainly learning curves of having this new stomach. It’s difficult if your previous relationship with food was to eat all at once, eating quickly or used to eating and drinking at once. All these habits become difficult and need to constantly remind yourself to stop once you start feeling full. It’s easy to feel uncomfortable if you overfill yourself and you risk heartburn, nausea, vomiting etc when doing any of the above cons.
I’m looking forward to going to the gym with my current weight loss and furthering my wellness journey. I’ll update in a couple of weeks. In the mean time, I did do a tarot pull this past Tuesday.
This card is about overcoming difficulties in my life and letting the positive come through. Whether it be about my health, work or personal life I can see this coming through for me in every aspect at the moment. I hope to continue down the path of positivity.
Thank you all for reading. I do enjoy updating about my life here and there. More tarot based blogs and updates coming. Hope summer hasn’t melted everyone!
