Another week has gone by so quickly. I'm still obsessing over food and spending a large amount of time at the supermarkets. My condition has improved slightly as in I am able to tolerate a larger variety of food. This means I am able to go out to eat more often which I am so happy about. I am so sick of eating the food I cook. I am so not a good cook.
I believe the probiotics helped my digestive system a lot and I am taking the potent dose for another 2 weeks. You never know, soon I may be able to eat Korean fried chicken!
I had an ultrasound done on my abdomen a short while ago and I finally got the results. It seems I have gallstones, about 0.2cm in diameter each. As I do not get any pain from these gallstones, the doctor is unsure if they cause my bloating and headaches. Anyway, I have to see a specialist if I want any further investigation. I am probably going to see a subsidised public doctor as the treatment for gallstones is quite costly. Treatment involves removing the gallbladder. Can one live without a gallbladder? Apparently yes. I don't wish to part with my gallbladder and I don't want an unnecessary operation which may lead to other problems. All that can wait. It will take me a few months to get an appointment. Meanwhile, I'm going to keep going with having a healthy diet. Oh, I have to avoid fatty food. Damn!
Something wonderful happened this week. I discovered I love quinoa. I have tried quinoa milk before and it tasted really awful. I was at this supermarket and came across some packed precooked food.
I had been thinking of re-introducing soba back into my diet. Now when it comes to eating food known to previously cause me problems, I want to eat a very tasty version to make it worth the pain if it comes. I remember I used to love the soba at One Raffles Place and one day hubs and I went ALL THE WAY to Raffles Place just to eat Lava at Wheat.
The funny thing about me is on the day I had the big fat headache from broccoli, I still went ahead to try a new food. I had made plans with my girl to try out Mr Bean's soy ice cream in the evening. By then, I had already beaten the headache out of me but it was a huge strain. I was thinking eating an ice cream will really help me out.
I haven't forgotten about weighing myself. Having pigged out this week, I was quite nervous to see my weight.
This morning I weighed myself and was surprised by my weight - 57.8kg.
Last Friday, I weighed 58kg. This means I have lost 200 grams this week and a grand total of 5kg 200g since 21st July 2015.
4th Sep 2015 - 57.8kg
28th Aug 2015 - 58kg
21st Aug 2015 - 58.8kg
14th Aug 2015 - 58.9kg
7th Aug 2015 - 59.9kg
21st July 2015 - 63kg
I haven't been very good with my exercise this week. Since my last run at Sentosa on Sunday, I haven't run at all because I have hurt my heel. As I have another run end September, I think it's best to rest my feet until I'm healed. I did continue to walk. My Pilates was a fail. I got so bored with it I didn't do it regularly. I think I need new moves.
Next week I want to try out rice to see if my stomach can tolerate it. If yes, I would be able to eat at any restaurant. Right now I'm restricted to restaurants which serve potatoes instead of rice. I so look forward to that day.
