So I apologize right off hand for the topic, I don't normally talk about stuff like this since its so private, but ima lil on the miserable side and I'm praying I'm not the only one that has had to deal with this.
So I've been pretty good for the past month about my diet/food choices, decent about the exercise (I still have a household to run so I'm slowly learning how to balance it)
Of course I haven't been perfect but it's a work in progress, with slow steps in the right direction. Trying to make the lifestyle change, not just be "on a diet"
But last night my stomach started to hurt, pretty uncomfortably. Not anything that would have me running toward the er but it still hurt like crap lol. It made it difficult to sleep. And I know what the problem is, it's been about a week since I have went to the bathroom. My stomach I so poked out that I look like I'm pregnant (I was fat anyway but this jus made it worse lol)
But the thing I can't figure out is why. With all of my better food choices logically I shouldn't have stomach issues. I keep my fiber intake up, I eat a nice green leafy salad every day, I measure out proper proportions, I drink at least eight glasses of water a day (most of the time it's twelve), I'm in Lo d with fruits and veggies, and even though I have upped my protein intake my diet isn't ALL protein I like to try and balance every thing
I'm eating smaller meals and its the six small meals spaced out thru the day.
The frustrating thing (besides the discomfort) is that I am a nurse, and I suggest things all day long to my patients to try, I've tried them all, but nothing, still same results. It's frustrating, my stomach should be Gettin better not worse.
It's jus so frustrating. Ugh and painful :/
