I’m so sorry that this is so late. This has been a difficult couple of weeks and very stressful. But, as for my health, it has also been very exciting. I find it ironic that my last post I was hopeful that my next period would be much better than my previous ones, because this week I had my period. The only emotions I had this week was apathy, no depression or anger or crazy mood swings from sky high to abysmal lows. This is so encouraging for me! I feel like there is a light at the end of the tunnel! I think I would like to continue my supplements for my hormones for a full three months before I start regularly drinking coffee again. I have to admit that I have really struggled to continue taking the coconut oil and molasses this week. Ever since I found out that almond milk bothered me, I have had a hard time finding a substitute that I look forward to. The reason I’ve been avoiding regular milk is it causes congestion for me and being in such high altitude increases my ear aches and infections. Another substitute I tried this week is rice milk. I found it extremely sweet, too sweet for my taste when its plain. One thing I’ve noticed since cutting out a lot of sugar and processed foods is that I do not crave or like extremely sweet foods anymore. I still like ice cream and chocolate, but nothing that is artificially sweetened.
Day 49 Week 8: 144.2 lbs, waist 38.5″ and bust 34″. I am amazed that even though I’m cheating a little bit with ice cream I’m still staying the same size and even losing more weight. I have noticed more vitality, more energy and more level emotions. I’m so pleased with my health at this point. I can’t wait for my gut to keep improving as well.
