Last week I broke my fat fast and returned happily to the world of solid, substantial food. Er, only for one day. I ate what I woulf normally conume on an induction days. Good health stuff. My bad! I should have known my stomach had shrunk to the size of a pea and wasn't taking anything bigger than that. I was in agony the whole weekend, hardly ate on the Sunday. BUt did I complain? NO! The idea of me not being able to handle food is so new I really can't believe it. I used to be able to shovel food down by the ton, but here I am, struggling to finish a piece of chicken.
I spent the rest of the week not eating much and I can already see the chnges. I have no idea how much weight I've lost, but my pin -stripes are practically baggy. I really want these changes to stay for good, not just be see-you-later weight loss. The challenge for me as usual is when I get out of this fairly controlled environment, where I'm busy and not exposed to food all day. Next week I'll spend most of my week at home, I'll need to get some strategies to not get bored and head for the fridge for some entertainment.
Tomorrow is my last day in glorious Kenya, nd soon I'll be back with my sweet cuppycake (who is NOT missing her mommy) and DH. Can't wait, no I can't.....
