I could have many more things wrong with me and thinking about the few things I have been complaining about, they're pretty minor and normal for my age. I'm just waiting for the bloodwork to come back, and fortunately I can look it up online to get my results faster than I used to.
The funny thing is that that's the most I've been felt up that much by a man in a while. Yep, I guess that's what happens when you've been married for a while (it will be 10 years next month).
My doctor did listen to me a little, but it seems that they only address the first thing you bring up. I was the third woman complaining about our periods being that much closer each month. I'm a full 3 days quicker now than I was 3 years ago. I didn't realize that you get more as you get older! I want less...
Weight loss did come up and he praised me for losing the 50 pounds and asked me how I felt now. We discussed how much easier it is to do things and how much stronger I've become. It's just so much easier to do things when you become active and healthy.
I did not like having to fast until lunchtime. I do not do well doing that. I made the decision to have McDonalds for lunch and I was so hungry that I ate both the sandwich I ordered for myself and nearly all the fries I tried to split with my husband (I caught his lunch break).
We also had pizza last night, but I was satisfied with 2 slices of the regular pizza and 2 slices of the dessert pizza I had. It could have been so much worse, but fortunately I was not as ravenous by then.
I think the higher number on the scale this morning is from all the salt in those meals.
I ended the day watching a documentary last night, "Hungry for Change". It was probably one of the best ones. It wasn't pushing a particular type of eating style on you, like vegetarian or only juicing, it did bring up the juicing thing, but it was basically telling you to eat right and that sugar is bad for you, but not really pushing it hard, just telling you that refined foods are the things that are really concentrated and not valuable in the way of giving you nutrients. America is the land of overfed/undernourished people. We eat plenty of calories, but get no real vitamins in our diets.
I'm going to go into certain parts of the ingredients they talked about and other ones I want to look into soon, talking about one per blog, just because I want to do the research on the bad "shelf-life extending" ingredients put into "food-like" products. I wasn't aware of all the names certain ingredients could be listed as on the labels and I thought I had been avoiding some things better than I am. I'll be sad that I have to get rid of more foods out of my diet again. I don't want to be eating "food-like" products, I want to be injesting real foods.
Today's Holidays: National 'Twilight Zone' Day, World Belly Dance Day, National Windmill Day, National Train Day, and Eat What You Want Day. (As far as I'm concerned I eat what I want every day, I just don't overeat anything each day.)
