I’m working three back to back shifts Thursday through Saturday and this next week is nutty (but the end is near!) so I have plans to make a part 2 video to my last video on amenorrhea, but in the meantime…I thought what Kylie wrote today on her blog about bloating was perfect.
Bloating is the number one thing clients gets anxious/worried/concerned/challenged with either in ED recovery or simply just because. I hope this is helpful…
I was mega bloated and feeling blah before this meal, but I knew that would pass and when it did I’d be hungry if I didn’t eat. Sometimes you’re bloated. That doesn’t mean you should skip a meal or a snack. Feeling bloated occasionally is no different than getting a headache occasionally…it just happens. It doesn’t mean you did something wrong, you ate something wrong, or you should not eat. (And if you’re someone trying to weight restore…you will just feel bloated pretty much all the time until your gastroparesis subsides and the bloated feeling isn’t constantly present. Keep going! It gets better!)
Have a restful, fun, weekend with lots of gentleness and grace 🙂
