The biggest change since my three week update has to be my attitude.
Honestly, I was in a bad place. There was an insatiable craving deep in my bones – it desperately wanted all my old comfort foods like pizza and cheese burgers. Obviously I didn’t give it any, but that didn’t stop my body from hating on me. And then, of course, me hating on, like, everything.
I can blame many things for this, but I’m going to blame something that I know we can all agree on – that monthly visitor. Aunt Flow. Or the red sea. Or whatever you want to call it. That thing that takes a perfectly normal human and turns them into a crazy, raging weirdo. The kind of weirdo, where you know that you’re reacting completely irrationally, but that doesn’t even stop you from proceeding. Just me? I doubt it, but I’m OK to pretend it is if it’ll make you feel better.
Anyway. I don’t know if it’s the diet, the hormones or just my body revolting but I had the worst period in years. So painful and just really freaking awful. Sorry for the TMI (although this is tame to what I’m holding back about it). But seriously, it can’t be coincidence that it’s happening at exactly the same month that I cut out all the stuff?
That aside, the good news is that it’s over and I now have full control of my body again. Can I get a “Thank Goodness!” *You can hear my kids throwing a party in the background*
We’ve settled into our new eating pattern now and it’s not so much of a struggle for me to think of things to have for supper or snack on. I can’t tell you how much difference that makes. I feel like I am finally relaxed about it where as before it was taking up my entire thought process. Everything needed extra thinking before I could eat – now it’s much less of a mission.
My skin keeps looking better and better. Granted, it’s still not close to where I want it to be, but it really is getting there.
This is the latest no make up selfie.
Compare that to the first one up there and there is a difference. Right? Please say you see it too.
The big, hard pimples have almost totally cleared now and all that’s left to deal with is the Rosacea and scarring. Even the little white pimples I used to wake up covered in, have gone down to just one or two.
This week I’m going for a more intensive treatment at Skin Renewal, I can’t remember what it’s called but it zaps the redness under the skin. Sort of cauterising the blood vessels there. I went for a very light one of this a couple of weeks ago and could see the difference the next day, so I am hoping that after this one on a slightly higher voltage, it will have even bigger results. Don’t worry, I know a lot of you have been asking me, so I’m going to chat to my awesome beautician (is that the right word?) at Skin Renewal tomorrow and then I’ll give you a full rundown of the treatments that I have done. As well as all the details for the Health Renewal procedure.
So things are looking good.
I’m glad that I am finally making natural progress without having to resort to terrible drugs to achieve results. It might not be easy but considering all the negative things that the drugs do, I’d much rather go this slower, but healthier route to get to the source of my issues. Not just dealing with the symptoms.
