Restarted the supplements today!! Whoohoo!! Hopefully that will get my muscles back on track and I can jump start the exercise part of this in the next few weeks.

It's so funny, the supplements I take for the mitochondrial disorder are the same that most body builders take for muscle energy for major workouts... Creatine, Coenzyme Q10, and L-Carnitine. So when I order it, or go somewhere to get it, it's always funny to imagine what people are thinking: What in the world is this short fat chick doing with creatine?? Cuz it's pretty obvious that I am not a body builder! hahahahaha

But they really helped last time I had a major deterioration. The COQ10 helps the mitochondria convert stored sugars to energy and the L-Carnitine helps break down fats to be used for energy.

I maintained eating healthy for the most part. I had to cut back on meats and replace it with nutella and egg whites for protein because it's kind of hard to swallow right now, but I did not revert back to my old habits! Last time I relied heavily on instant oatmeal or grits because it was easy to swallow. I did have to cut back on the salad some. I am picking through the bag to find the "softest" leaves (I get the Butter blend from Fresh Express, it is fabulous!!). It seems that before I could eat any leaf and now I can feel the odd shaped ones or the crispy ones get caught in my throat. But, as long as I pick the least crispy ones and have a little moisture from the Raspberry vinaigrette, I have been able to keep eating those! Yay.

My jeans are to big!! Yay! It feels so good.

And.... drum roll please.... The pair of Bitten jeans (Sarah Jessica Parker line), that I have been saving because I bought them and they never fit, can now be buttoned!! Hooray! They are still to snug for comfortable wear, but I am so close I can taste it!!


you are doing amazing! congrats on the jeans! btw love the new pic..you are leaving me behind. look at you in the 180's and here i sit eating your dust still in the 190's. so proud of you :)
