On My Way


I had therapy last night, and see my nutritionist this evening. My therapsit wants me to add an ensure to my intake, but I don't feel like I can do it, or really want to do it. They are worried about the fact that I'm burning more calories than I'm taking in. I know this is true, but I'm trying to do this in a slow way. My weight has changed a bit, but really not that much, and certainly not enough to be concerned. They are also worried that as I see my weight and body change in a positive way, it will trigger me to become obsessive. Who me?...Obsessive? I understand the concern, and I am committed to getting to yoga five times a week, but only because it makes me feel so good. Yes, I want to see some positive changes in the way my body looks, but that is secondary to how I feel. I'm going to add more food, and I know that some people think that you have to jump right into a proper meal plan. That is what they make you do in treatment, but I think doing it that way was really hard on my digestive system. I had all kinds of problems when I returned. Right now I feel good. I have energy, and eat when I feel hungry, and I am actually feeling some hunger cues. I was starving after yoga last night, and ate a substantial amount of food. I try to stay away from getting and feeling full. I stop before that point, but I don't see anything wrong with that. For the most part though, my team loves seeing me happy and excited about life. My therapist gave me a big hug last night and said, "You are on your way."
