I have Hope (& intake June 19th)

I'm feeling really good today. The appointment with the dietician went really well. She understands that I don't want nor need to put my intake up too high yet, and that I'm not ready to gain weight. She blind-weighed me, and we decided on 800-1,000 calories a day for the next week, and we'll see what happens. If I gain, then it's time to look into why I gain so easily. Feeling optimistic :) Eat more, stay skinny, yes?

Egg yolks are a big deal for me these days, but I had a whole egg with lunch! Also, it was my first time poaching an egg - and it was perfect :) I also treated myself with sugar-free ice cream after dinner. A few months back, these were all I would eat, and I was horribly sick and bloated all the time because I ate a ridiculously dangerous amount of Sorbitol. And Quick-Eze. I would eat 3-12 packs a day, with my ice cream. Strangest eating habit ever. I was spending more on ice cream & Quick-Eze than I was on weed.

  1. That's great! I'm so glad your appointment went well and you are feeling positive and motivated, I think that's half the battle. You seem to have good support too. Much love xxx

  2. Your dietitian sounds wonderful! I'm glad she is so understanding and really helping you out. I hope things continue to go well!

  3. I'm so happy for you. Good luck with everything. You're an inspiration in every way.

  4. I poached my first egg a couple of months ago then became addicted and would have one a day. I think that it was because I was running so much at the time and was craving protein. No eggs for me now though, sigh :p
