In the penultimate week of 2012, I had fixed an appointment to see my endocrinologist. Though my thyroid test results seemed perfect, I am finding it way too hard to lose weight and way too easy to regain the minimal weight that I do lose. Also my overall wellness has been at an all time low. Those of you reading me know that I have battled gas related problems for quite a long time now. It might be a long term effect of eating less but right now, the issue has started to bother me pretty badly. I feel bloated and heavy ALL the time, and mornings are usually really bad with the gas troubling me so much that I develop lower back pain and cannot even stand.
When I was on my holiday in the last week of December, I ate larger portions of home cooked food. I think I can safely say that even though the gas trouble still persisted, atleast it was not so bad that I could not bear to stand on my feet.
I am going to discuss this today with the doctor and see if there might be an underlying problem that I need to address. Alternately I expect that I will be referred to a dietician /nutritionist who will recommend that I include salads at all three meals. Honestly, I have come to a point where I think I am ready to even pop weight loss pills.
In other news, I am going to join a running group tomorrow. It seems like they run together every Saturday morning. I am not much of an extrovert and honestly feel a bit nervous. But I simply want to give it a try. I will continue if I like it or go back to my solo runs if I find that I do not feel comfortable.
Those are the updated from my world. It's friday, and I so glad!!!
