Am posting this on here as is fitness related too...basically had first appointment with Dietician today and it was great. She was soooo nice and understanding and thorough....I cant believe they havent sent me to one sooner. Obviously having had this for 5 1/2 years and having tried EVERY DIET THERE IS...I already know triggers etc...but I was more concerned about eating balanced meals and making healthy choices but not hurting tummy at the same time. I know how to get myself stable...but that means LOTS of refined foods(the white stuff) which are stripped of nutrients and LESS fruit and veg. That makes me feel so groggy tho cos Im not getting my vitamins and dont feel like Im healthy enough...so we sort of worked out a plan...all the foods I like to eat etc...what triggers attacks...what things to do with food to avoid them hurting...portions sizes....all the vitamins and nutrients I should be getting in a day etc etc...and we worked out a 6 week plan together for me to be getting on with. If that fails to see any improvement then she wants to put me on an exclusion diet...but Im hoping that wont happen. I am going to BE STRICT on myself...I will try reporting in...maybe not everyday...but some updates...letting you know how Im getting on....and lets hope it does the trick.

I also need to CHEW MY FOOD properly....Im TERRIBLE for that....so Im gona write down everything...including how the food effects me etc....like I did when I first worked out my triggers...and see if that helps.

Oh also...main other thing...was WEIGHT LOSS...I discussed the fact that I am carrying around a stone to a stone and a half MORE than I should be and have been tried to get rid for a long time without any success. She went through all my history including medications I take and the way I eat...and shes pretty sure its down to my polycystic ovaries/too much loperamide/IBS which Id already thought. I used to be so slim when I recovered from glandular fever/lost my puppy fat and was healthy...then IBS hit and it all spiralled from there. So Im following Low GI principles from now on to see if we have any success with that. Plus I HAVE to join a gym and get 3/5 regular exercise sessions in....need a job before I can afford to join...but am gona use my exercise video from tomorrow to get me started.

So come on everybody....KICK MY ASS!!!!!!!!!!!
