I'm sure most of us have restarted, gotten back on track, refocused, etc... a time or two on our journey.
Have you all noticed that each time you "re-start" after getting off track that your weightloss is slower, even if just at first? It seems to be that way for me. I've read that anytime you switch your eating habits from good to bad, that it messes up your metabolism. Has anyone else noticed this?
Also, I am just getting over bronchitis and I had to take some oral steriods for a week. I am SUPER bloated, and just swollen everywhere, especially in the upper stomach. My weight is pretty evenly spread out over my body and I've always had a "dent" in my stomach at about belly button height. I think this is due to being overweight when I was a kid and having my pants cut in to my belly. My "dent" is right at my pants line. i even had a square looking belly while pregnant.
Anywho, this results in the upper half of my dent looking huge since the steriods. It's like twice the normal size!
It's been 2 weeks since the steriods and it's not going down. How long does this take and is there anything I can do to speed it along? I feel like Violet who turned into a blueberry in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory!
