I am back talking about Endometriosis, yes with a capital letter as this is not just any illness. Those of you that have endometriosis, or know someone that has endometriosis know this well, that this illness is defined and treated differently depending on the doctor that sees you. As nobody knows why this illness appears, why some women have worst symptoms, and it has not been determined scientifically why some women develop it and why some others don’t , many doctors decide to simply ignore it as a contestant for what it may be happening to you.
These last two weeks have been a mix of many things and I am still doing this challenge and learning more things about how I understand food.
One of the things I am noticing after 4 weeks doing this challenge is that the ‘crazy need for really rich foods’ is fading away. By this, I don’t mean that I don’t ever think about it but that I don’t have it in my mind 24/7 and that it is becoming increasingly easier to just say NO. I read a book a long time ago about the power of habit and I guess this has a lot to do with it. I have also realized how big is the role of stress in any diet.
It’s been two weeks since I joined Weight Watchers and it has been a complete roller coaster! I decided to register because I wanted to loose a few kilos and I thought that the weekly monitoring would motivate me to lose more and faster. I was entirely sure that I had the nutrition factor completely handled and that I just needed some group motivation. But the first week I even put weight on!! It turns out that I actually learned a few things about some of the foods I was having and this has been quite the revelation! This is going to be an ongoing series where I will share my progress through the program and the lessons I learned along the way. Stay tuned!
