Weigh In Friday - Windy with haze

Hello people who don't live in Singapore,

Lucky you. The haze situation has gotten hazardous.

The PSI for PM2.5 reached 309 for my area this morning. The Ministry of Education closed kindergatens, primary schools and secondary schools. My son had to go to school though as he attends a junior college. It's very strange why junior colleges aren't closed.

You would think with the PSI this high, no one in his right mind would go out without a good mask. Apparently not. Many people walk about maskless, my son and hubs included.

I took no chances as I am weak. I have a large head and face but managed to find a mask that fits me. I noticed some people use hankies as masks or fan their noses with a piece of paper. It's not the smell they should be worried about!

Haze aside, I had a very bad week with food. My stomach didn't quite recover from trying out white rice last week. At one stage, I literally couldn't eat anything. Everything I ate brought forth wind. So I went back to taking the probiotics, VSL#3 my GP had prescribed. I found them available at the pharmacy without a need for prescription. One box of 30 costs $42.80 which is robbery but at least I felt slightly better.

Quinoa, buckwheat and oats are my safe food. I wasn't worried about trying Quinoa Ramen. I was more worried about the taste. Upon opening the packet, I smelled something awful. Ever notice alternative grains tend to smell not so good? I boiled the ramen which cooked easily and mixed it up with some stir fried veges and meat.

Maybe I haven't eaten ramen for a long time but it was freaking delicious. And my stomach liked it.

Yesterday I felt somewhat better and tried brown rice wafer. What can I say? I still crave normal food. It turned out to be one big mistake. My stomach ballooned up with so much wind and pain I almost went to the hospital. Luckily my girl was able to punch the wind out with her magical hands. I can't say with 100% certainty but I think rice, any kind of rice is poison to me.

I want to confess something. I haven't even gone to the polyclinic to get a specialist referral. I said I would but I never did. Yesterday's episode has shaken me up. Next week I will do it even if the PSI is higher than 300.

My Friday's post has gotten quite depressing. I'm not sure if I want to continue posting... Certainly it would be useful to me as a reference. Perhaps it's the haze that's getting me down. Perhaps it's writing about negative stuff that happened to me and thus thinking about it. And thoughts of my fear of eating. Thoughts of not being able to eat delicious food. Thoughts of my being sick and tired of cooking most meals. Ahhhh! It's been a rough week. I shall leave it behind.   

I just remembered that today is my weighing day. As you know, I've already achieved my ideal weight of 57kg. Unfortunately due to my inability to eat 3 full meals this week, my weight continued to drop. This morning I weighed myself and the scale registered 55.9kg. That means a loss of 500g since last Friday. It's not too bad. I'm not worried. The next 7 days I'm going to be ultra careful about what I eat. I'll stick to my safe food and make sure I get 3 proper meals a day. As usual my weight loss is mostly from my boobs. If this carries on, I'm going to be flat as a pancake. Isn't it ironic? Now I have to make sure I don't keep losing weight. Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha.
