When you get on a healthy food schedule, and keep to that food schedule, a miraculous thing happens - (or at least it did for me) your body gets on a schedule.
For example (warning - possible TMI) since I have lost weight, my period is on a normal schedule. 25 days after the start of my last period, I start again. Now, while I'd prefer it to push the 28 day mark, I am VERY happy in that I can plan exactly when I am going to start. And I do, every time. It starts the same time, it lasts as long as it did last time, and I feel tons better during (no cramps, etc.) I was up .5 pounds this morning, and I knew why. Welcome to 25 days later.
Now - on the flip side - you realize quickly when you do stupid things. Case in point: I'm at Walmart the other day, perusing the aisles, and I come upon this-
Now you may be asking in your head, "Hey Rae, you've lost 175 pounds, why in this world would you feel the need to pick up weight loss tea? You obviously know how to lose weight." And the answer is - you're right, I have no idea, most likely because I'm fucked up in the head. Anyway, I buy this shit a few days ago, and have been drinking a cup a day.
BAD IDEA. Just so you know - for the first time IN OVER A YEAR (and that was because I picked up a virus for god's sake) - it had me running to the bathroom EVERY SINGLE DAY. It didn't happen concurrently (meaning I didn't drink the tea and immediately run to the bathroom - it took a few hours), so the slow me took a few days to put together - but I didn't have the tea today and miraculously (duh) I'm back to normal.
Moral of the story: listen to your body and don't do stupid things. But at least because I now have this nice symbiotic relationship with my body - I can spot and manage things easier now.
