I had PIZZA last night. 😀 two whole pieces. it was Ristorante cheese pizza that is frozen. it is the most incredible THIN crusted pizza there is so it was easier to eat. I cut my bites the size of my little fingers first knuckle and probably chewed each bite between 35-50 times. I had no pain while eating it, except the indiscernible pain in my tooth and my jaw from all that blasted chewing. 😆 was full at the end, but not painfully full. had I drank any water I would probably have bloated up and then thrown up, so that was difficult not being able to drink water with it, but otherwise was ok. yahoo.!! must have took me almost an hour to do all that chewing. so far I have thrown up once, sneezed several times, eaten pizza, driven at least 45 min nonstop and walked at least a half to 3/4 mile nonstop. so I do feel that I am beginning to get there. still tire somewhat easily but not as bad as before. Don’t quite feel like me yet, but am getting closer to me each day. I have still been having troubles with dizziness. have noticed that I have not had problem with that first thing in the morning because Charlie has brought me a shake of my supplements before I even get out of bed, than he makes a quiche and we split it for breakfast. I eat the egg bits and feed all the crust to my dogs. so we have had quiche for breakfast in bed the last three mornings and I have not had the morning dizziness like usual. must be a blood sugar thing. have had a few times of dizziness later in the day if I have forgotten to eat and went quite sometime without food. also I decided to check last night and this morning and have found that I am in quite a bit of ketosis. if you don’t know what that is you can get ketostixs from the pharmacy and you can measure the rate that your body is breaking down its own fat by urine analysis. when your body is breaking down its own fat, you are losing weight. There are some times that I will get to far into ketosis and begin losing weight too fast and that is when I feel sick, dizzy, nauseous, and don’t have any energy. I was in ketosis pretty heavy and that was AFTER having pizza and a little piece of cheesecake last night. so will have to make sure that I eat enough. otherwise I feel pretty good. strange that food doesn’t control my life like before, now it does it in a different way. I forget to eat, I get sick because my blood sugar drops. hmmm. hope that evens out eventually and that this isn’t always a problem. course having my sugar drop means that I HAVE to eat, if it was too high I wouldn’t be able to eat most things. wonder which is better? 😉
