New Year’s Resoltion
I never make them because I never kept them. I got to the point where I figured it was a waste of time to even think one up. However, because this last year has been so bad I’m going to be making a BIG one. This one is for my health. I want to change my ways of eating. A diet of sorts, but not one meant for weight loss. One that will make my tummy like me more and not give me as much hell. (hopefully)
As most of my online buddies know, I suffer from many stomach problems. I will not go into detail to save you guys from completely boredom but it’s something that has held me back from doing so many things in my life. I have struggled with it and been on all sorts of medications, seen all sorts of doctors and yet – this year – my health just seemed to deteriorate more.
Adding asthma and eczema to my list of problems does not make me happy – especially since my skin is something I hate the most about my appearance and I use to be a strong singer but now all I do is cough and sputter. The asthma has made it so that I have even less energy than before, the steroids I’m on for the asthma make me constantly hungry. This makes me depressed and even less inclined to want to do anything – cosplay included.
My mother has been researching some things for me to try and has lead me to some kind of powder to put on my food to help with bacteria infections I may have. Not a cure but something to help, almost like a vitamin and not something to take forever. Then I went ahead and bought a book that talks about the different kind of foods and what they can do to your stomach.It also gives you a diet plan that starts off hard but then slowly goes down to a diet plan that will work for every day.
This will hopefully make my bloating and other stomach pain go down significantly – and that will actually help with any weight trouble as well. It even came with an app that can help monitor what I eat and how my symptoms react in the day. (Of course I still have to exercise but if it helps my pain then exercise will be a lot more possible for me again.)
It will not be easy – I’m in no delusions – but I’m hopeful that it will help me because the medication alone is not doing the trick. I want to have more energy to have fun and to do more cosplay before I get even older! LOL
So wish me luck. I plan to put my two cents on all of this as I do it. I will let you guys know if I think it is something that anyone could benefit from, even if it isn’t for stomach problems, it can also be helpful for weight loss.
Now that I have shared what my New Year’s resolution will be , what is yours?
