It has been so long since I blog about a diet/weightloss related post! Today I’m going to share about some of the problems that I’m facing after the 40kgs weight loss. You might think that I’m healthy and happy but that’s not really the case.
These are some of the things that are bothering me, well not all the time but most of the time.. I thought I should share more about this because people only focus on how I look after I slim down instead of what’s really going on..
So these are the few issues that I’m having right now and am still finding ways to feel and get better.
– I have irritable bowel syndrome. I was diagnosed with this recently, and I think that it has to do with my bingeing episodes. Previously I can gobble down 3000-4000calories worth of food if I’m feeling hungry, it doesn’t matter if I’m full or not, cos I will just push it down. Anyway I didn’t get this just recently, I have always had the symptoms, but I didn’t know it was IBS.
– I’m always feeling tired and sleepy, and I have low energy and always feeling weak. Even if I have enough sleep, I still feel tired all the time. Other than this, frequent low blood pressure and low blood sugar. I feel that I have this issues because my body couldn’t absorb much nutrients. (refer to the last point)
– Loose skin obviously, I am already used to this, but if you don’t want loose skin, your weight loss should be steady instead of drastic.
– I have to eat small meals throughout the day. I can’t eat a proper meal, if I tried to eat a proper meal I will get indigestion and super super bad bloatedness. My body is too used to the diet times.. Even if I eat vegetables and meat only, I get bloatedness too.
I’m bottom heavy that made me look disproportionate! You can watch my video because I reveal something that I have never blogged before.
Lastly, I am always running to the toilet, I can visit the toilet 4-5times a day, good times would be 2 or 3. This is the worst because it’s affecting my lifestyle.
I regret relying on crash diets to lose weight, if I were to exercise and have a balanced diet, none of these would happen. At that point of time, I just felt that crash diet is the best way to lose weight, I didn’t know how to control myself by keeping it max a week. I just kept pushing myself to diet because I just wanted to lose weight so badly.
I really hope that you don’t follow what I did in the past because I don’t want you to regret in the future. All I can say is if you really want to diet, keep it max a week. But don’t go lower than 800 calories. Even 800 calories is bad that’s why i say only keep for a week! You can do a ‘cleansing’ every 2months once or something but keep it max a week and don’t extend the duration.
I know it’s very hard to change your mindset, but if you feel that it’s hard, then talk to me or drop me an email. You don’t need to tell me your name, just keep it anonymous.
Alright, that’s about it. And here’s the video.. Watch it if you want to. 🙂
