Juice fast day three
Wednesday, June 12, 2013
I'm a little bit amazed by how much better I feel from day to day. After having suffered with debilitating thyroid issues for three years while doctors tried and failed to figure out what was wrong with me, I had come to distrust that I would get better. It's been such a long time since I didn't feel bad from the moment I woke up until I slept. I was fearful of getting my hopes up that this time I would actually feel better, after all the failed treatments before.
That being said, today I woke up feeling great, and wanting to get out of the house. Last night my long enduring bf took me to the movies, something we haven't done since we started dating back in the UK. It was nice to be able to go out and do something without worrying of I was going to have to go home or was I going to feel really sick. I didn't have to bring a handful of pills to combat the anxiety, heart palpitations, nausea, or heartburn that I used to suffer from. As I sat comfortably enjoying the movie, I realized how much worrying about if I was going to feel well had taken over my usual train of thought. It was on my mind constantly-even when I felt fine. I kept asking myself, what am I feeling? Do I feel okay? Do I have and chest pains? And every time I answered, no I'm fine. I was even able to share a caffeinated soda with him-which used to be an absolute no for my heart palpitations. I suppose it will take me some time to trust that I am actually better.
I found with a careful application of cover up and a funky necklace, you can't see my incision at all. It's only 10 days since my surgery, but the placement by the surgeon was superb. I'm really happy about it, and I don't think I could have asked for a better outcome. It was nice to put a necklace on without having to add spacers so it would fit my neck-I haven't been able to do that since I was in high school.
Yesterday I had a orange carrot juice for breakfast, a blueberry green juice for lunch and a tomato vegetable juice for dinner. I'm down five pounds since Monday-bringing my total weight loss to 14 pounds. 4 pounds up from when I stopped juicing prior to my surgery.
Today is a writing day for me. With my brain fog lifted, I'm excited to finish up my editing and get this novel sent out. New health new hope for me!
