Crinkly…I pray to God I get there. I’ve been gaining for 6 months. SIX months. I fit into NOTHING. Literally every time I get dressed, I have to suppress tears.
I didn’t really go crazy with junk – I had some cereal with 2% milk, and started eating gluten again (in the form of whole grain or sprouted grain bread), but everything else has been whole foods – chicken, steak, sweet potatoes, etc. I recently started cutting down on fat because Dr G said that might help, but the numbers are still slowly creeping up. My temps are up, but that’s the only real marker I’ve seen moving in the right direction – I’ve always slept well, so there’s nothing new on that front. However, I now have a fat roll…and I’m so upset I can’t bear it. Everything says to reduce stress – but all I’ve done is gain stress – and it increases each time I walk by a mirror. I was happy before – I was a little frustrated with the fact that I was struggling to lose the last 5-10 lbs, yes…but this is much, much worse.
I’m still working out because it’s the only thing that makes me feel better, but I’m monitoring my heart rate as well as my stress levels (with a heart rate variability sensor).
I’m getting a hair mineral analysis from Dr G, going to get a metabolic rate test done, and also having my thyroid tested next week. Something must be wrong here, because this just doesn’t make any sense.
Rob, Amy – anyone? I need help.
