sararay's Journal, 25 July 2013

My pants were loose today. They have been tight-ish since I bought them. I went shopping at a second hand store a few months after my baby was born and had to get some sizes I have never worn before in my life. My mom came by today and I haven't seen her since Saturday. She said she could tell I am less bloated. She was surprised.

I didn't even cut sugar because I'm eating fruit and there is some sugar in my almond milk. I just cut grains and dairy which I am sure I am sensitive to. My bloat is going away, which means my inflammation is going away. I am happy to be seeing results in the waistline already. I often lose bloat and not even move the scale so I'm not sure if I should weigh in at all just yet or just measure.

I feel great and I had lots of energy today despite waking up with a headache. It was either detoxing or leftover stress from last night. My IN-laws came into town last night to take us to dinner and my SIL and her kids were there. I get along with my IN-laws just fine, for the record, but my SIL's kids stress me out. Plus they were short on sleep and we got to dinner way too late for the kids. My daughter who is usually great at restaurants was all hyper because of being around her cousins. My baby had not wanted to take his afternoon nap so he was screaming at the restaurant. Luckily it was very loud in there so I'm not sure if anyone noticed besides the people right behind us. My husband and I took turns rocking him but he didn't want to nurse nor eat his food. So I was tense. I may have clenched my jaw all night.

Some peppermint essential oil held it off for a bit this morning. I rubbed a drop into my temples and above my eyes on my forehead. It worked for about 4 hours. But then I had an early appointment and getting the kids out the door I forgot my coffee. By the time I got home my headache was back with a bang. I finally got coffee but by then it was too late and I was getting nauseous with my headache so it was headed towards migraine status. I took some tylenol with my coffee and used more peppermint, this time on the back of my neck too. It took some time but it finally all went away. Thank goodness.

Today I found a place that has Kombucha on tap. I was able to fill my growler finally. The lady I used to get it from wasn't at the farmers market any more. It really helps with reducing my cravings. It is probiotic and energizing too.

I think measurements and clothes getting loosier are most definitely a better guide to how you're doing than any number you see on the scales. Keep it up Sararay and I'm sure the scales will reward you too shortly.
