XF Dear Diary Mulder Kissed Me
Last summer I was told I needed to lose weight as they wouldn't treat my PCOS until I did in the six months that I was between appointments I'd lost 6 kilos (13.2lb just under a stone) I was still having issues with my thyroid then as well which didn't help matters either as well as my crazy work that I'd just started which ment I didn't have time for exercise or if I'm honest I couldn't be bothered much with it still the same now.
I was told back at christmas that this weightloss wasn't good enought the dietian I'd been to see earlier in the year was no help all she would offer me is exerice something at that point I really didn't have time for with caring for both my parents and working when I didn't have to work in the evening my thoughts were not about punishing myself with exercise so I didn't bother with that advice.
However something did begin to change last summer my eyes were opened to the cruilty chickens and pigs were being through just so we could eat them I wanted to make a difference but didn't know how that is until I met the very lovely traciebee who talked about going vegetarian with her ultimate goal going vegan. I talked to traciebee about going vegetarian and how to go about it as I had no clue of where to start so in the begining of Febuary I started to cut down on the amount of meat I was eating and replacing it with vegetarian meals however they weren't the best thing for me as they were ready meals that had high fat content so after a couple of weeks I stoped eating those and found my feed with making my own vegetarian dishes but I was still eating chicken as my mum wouldn't allow me for the first few months that I became vegetarian to not eat it. But a few months ago now back in I think June I stopped eating all meat I will very very very rarely eat some fish but I think that last time I had fish was a month ago possibly longer. I also stoped drinking milk as it was making me feel sick and I discovered soya milk which is great it's helped me out to no end along with not eating butter or marg that has animal products in it I now eat a dairy free marg called Vitalite which oddly enough I used to eat as a kid.
I have now in the last month or two started making the transistion to being vegan now I know alot of people are going to freak reading that but honestly it's my decision to do that no one elses I started making the switch not long after I became vegetairan I have found great vegan meat replacement products that are cholestrol free as well as dairy free choloestrol free chocolate *OMGdies* but the great thing is I'm now getting better nutrition now than I was when I was eating meat I'm eating better (most of the time that is) than I have in years I enjoy cooking again (love scrambled 'egg' now) I think I have cut milk, eggs (I haven't really eaten eggs in over 10 years other than if they are in cakes or other foods such as bread or whatever) dairy products such as yougurt, meat and anything that contains animal products such as geletin. The best thing is I don't miss these things as there are much healthier crulity free things I can eat.
The best news is yet to come after my disappointment at christmas with not having lost much weight I thought when I had my follow-up appointment last week that I'd be told I'd only lost another 6 kilos (13.2lb) I have been asked if I've lost weight by people that come to where I work in the last few months but I don't feel like I really have so I got the shock of my life when I was told I had lost a further 14 kilos (30.9lb 2st 2.9lb) and I think with christmas and everything I most likely put the 6 kilos (13.2lb) back on so in total I lost 20 kilos (44.1lb 3st 2.1lb) because of this weightloss my consultant at the hospital is now going to begin treating me for PCOS I hope to start some medication this week (I get it tomorrow but my Mum ever the worrier doesn't want me to start them until she's home on sunday as the tablets might be hormone tablets or something so I'm going to phone her once I get the tablets so I can start them if she thinks I'll not kill everyone before she gets home) I also have to go for a scan in March 2010 to see what the lining of my womb is like as that might also cause me to not have periods IDK all I know is the tablets I've been given I have to take for 12 days then once those 12 days are over I should hopefully start having a period *crossesfingers* I haven't stopped there with my weight loss I want to lose another 30 kilos (66.1lb 4st 10.1lb) over the next year or two to get back to a much better weight as I have been far too overweight for too long but I'd settle for 20 kilos (44.1lb 3st 2.1lb) but 30 kilos (66.1lb 4st 10.1lb) would be better.
Okay enough about all that I have to say I love my friend Nic very much I went to her house tonight after I'd come home from work and had something to eat and we had a conversation whilst watching America's Next Top Model about how some of these girls being far too skinny as in unhealthy one of them was suffering from health problems due to her not eating right and I told my friend Nic about Nancy (my XF friends know who Nancy is) and what's happening to Nancy due to her own eating disorder and what caused it ect if you want to know more click here and my friend was saying about how she was sexually abused as a child until she was 16 when she ran away she used food to comfort her and how now she is fighting back and not using food to comfort herself which I find great. Whilst I was there she gave me 3 amazing tops one of which I'm wearing right now it has long dark sleeves then shorter sleeves steming from the top in a floral pattern and a v-neck that is long and ties in the back the other is a white ivory colour with flowy sleeves that make me think of medieval dressed and a beautiful satin short sleeved shirt that is purple.
