NECESSITY IS THE MOTHER OF INVENTION
Tuesday, September 08, 2015
Two months ago I got food poisoning from Chinese take-out scallops. Since then I have lost 20 pounds! I have been struggling and am finally on Flagyl and even though I was sick all weekend, I did lose close to 3 pounds. I think I am finally winning over this bacteria even though I will see a specialist on Thursday. I gave myself a hernia from the violent spewing I was doing on the first round of food poisoning and I am thinking that the hernia is causing my food not to digest. I have been told to go on the BRAT diet whenever I get into a bout of vomiting and diareheah. That is Bananas, Rice, Apple, Tea & Toast. When I start feeling good, I introduce additional foods but then find I eat the wrong thing and set myself off with another bout of vomiting and diareah. Not fun, not a good way to lose weight. I am at work today and tomorrow and going to the specialist on Thursday. Then, I am heading to Boston to see a good friend who is facing dialysis. I am hoping I do not get sick on my trip so I am being very cautious about what I eat. Today, I am sticking to the BRAT diet. Maybe tomorrow, I'll feel brave enough to introduce a little protein.
I gained 20 pounds after my hysterctomy two years ago but now I have lost that and want to keep it off. I have learned during the ordeal of the last two months that I can actually live on less food than I ever thought I could. I am hoping and praying that even when I am better i will be more in control of my diet and continue to restrict sweets and fats as I am pre-diabetic and have high chloresterol
Thank you for reading my blog and have a good day.
