Hi everyone... I realise that mostly we update with news about developments or anxieties and not often about the good news... which is why I've been quiet, because I haven't had an AF event since March after having one a month since last autumn. I'll probably have one tonight, having said that, haha...
I have tried to ask myself what's different, in case it helps anyone else. I've given up diet Coke, for a start - hubby must have been Googling because he declared it off limits. I have more or less given up chocolate. Also we've started eating more healthily, partly because hubby has been told he's borderline diabetic and we both need to lose weight. I've even got hold of the Optimal Diet book (SRMGrandma's diet) although my hubby did get a bit mournful at the lack of meat.
He's also making me laugh by trying the typical dieter's trick - if wifey doesn't see me eating it, it has no calories! I need CCTV... I am also exercising more, just walking, and using an old step machine and a little trampoline (got a bad knee). I bought one of those fitbits, which tells you how much you have/haven't done, which I find really useful. I don't know what of this may be helping - maybe it's all coincidence, but I thought maybe feedback would be good.
I am struggling to lose weight despite all this, though I've managed to lose 2lb. But I am hoping that eating better and exercising by themselves will help, and I'm trying to not worry about weight loss. I have it stuck in my mind that if I weighed less it would help my AF, because there seems to be a correlation with obesity. But that might be more complicated, I was thinking, and also related to a lack of fitness and bad diet. Who knows... Anyway, just a few thoughts, I hope everyone has a wonderful day.
