So I wasn’t going to write about this but feel like I need to let off some steam and get some perspective.
As you know, I have drastically changed my diet since January 1st and more recently am on the last leg of a pretty intense cleanse. I am off of all sugar, caffeine and alcohol and have replaced it with drinking green sludge, a ridiculous amount of water and more quinoa and vegetables than I ever thought I would see in my lifetime.
So with this, I have noticed an increase in energy and have pretty much eliminated my mid-afternoon crashes. I have lost 15 lbs in just over two weeks (which personally, I think is too much) but I have been told it was a release of all the toxins and inflammation my body was holding.
Now that’s all fine and dandy but we all know that’s not the reason I am doing all this in the first place. Anyone who knows me, knows I am extremely Type A and like control so getting rid of these damn fibroids was naturally something I was going to nip in the bud. I researched and asked and followed EVERYONE’s advice and take supplements, drink potions and rub castor oil on my tummy every night. I feel like I have been on an endless mission to zap these suckers to outer space!
And for what??
My OBGYN wants to take my uterus out. Grrrrrr
You know, sometimes it can really suck being a woman. I lead a very healthy lifestyle and somehow feel like my body has let me down.
I am NOT HAPPY about this. Now what?
