I think I might have chosen the wrong time to start changing the way that I eat. My hormones have been doing some strange things anyway. I have noticed that my hair isn't growing as fast (I average roughly 1.3 inches a month, which is phenomenal!) and after that I noticed that my nails aren't really growing at all. Since at first I thought my hair might be terminal (length; It will only grow for so long in terms of time), it really surprised me to take a look at my nails.
So here I was in the midst of being miserable over strange hair (I'm on my way to bum-length right now) and then food came up and whapped me across the face. Hard.
I've been doing pretty well with a mixture of fasting (to shrink the stomach) and eating small, regular meals. I'm eating fruit daily as well as yogurt (for my stomach). I've cut out almost all non-Kosher foods, though I slipped today and had bacon. It was an accident, but I felt terrible afterward. I'm exercising five times a week to daily, depending on the situation.
Okay, but here's the thing: My cyclical hormones are driving me bonkers right now. I am not hungry (at all?) but when I start to eat, I feel as though I can't stop. I fill up *very* fast, but once I start eating, I don't want to stop. I've only been doing this for two and a half weeks. This strikes me as odd since I'm not really an overeater in the way that most people think of over eaters. I don't gorge myself, even when I binge. I just eat the *wrong* stuff. I'm binging now on tuna and almonds and fruit!
I guess this is a good thing, but I don't want to stretch my stomach back out
