My house looks like one big mess right now! I’ve successfully de-cluttered a part of my kitchen! And I’m trying to complete the pending de-cluttering works one by one. Dad’s very upset that we’re throwing things away. (My parents have developed this sentimental attachment to most of the unused, useless things laying around. My bad!) But still.. A bad cluttered house spoils the mood, and the work productivity, indirectly!
I feel like breathing fresh air after every house-clean up. Do you feel the same way? Do let me know on the comment section below! I’ll do more posts on decluttering. I hope it’d help me maintain a mess-free home!
Today, I’ll be talking about my weight issues and what I’m aiming for in the next few months! If you’re underweight (like me!) I’d love it if we could do a weight gain challenge together.
Over the last few months, I have LOST a lot of weight. Say 15 pounds (or even more!) This takes a toll on my health and HAIR growth! Believe me when I say this; my hair growth is much faster when I’m healthy! (This proves losing weight impacts your hair. More on that later! A separate post is coming up!)
Before a couple of years, I stood at 120 pounds. (Around 54 kg) and this year, I’m close to 100 pounds; may be 99?. My hands feel so thin; the clothes don’t fit me anymore and I feel I don’t look good in any outfit I wear. I cannot figure out the proper reason for my weight loss but I’ve lost my appetite big time ever since I had chickenpox last year (January!) I was about to share my chickenpox journey but then got occupied with things. Hopefully, I shall be able to publish that long post resting in my draft box!
Before chickenpox, I would eat two bowls of cooked rice, 3 fried eggs, some chicken all at one go for my dinner! This used to be my dinner for so many days. Now I doubt if I could manage to eat at least half of the plate. I also do not feel hungry very often; even if I do, I get to snack in unhealthy food because of the limited time I get for cooking. Back then, I was only blogging. I went to bed earlier. Now my bad appetite + sleeplessness has melted down all the weight in my body!
Being a person who has the fastest metabolism (literally!) I know the struggles of gaining weight. I eat like anything for days and I don’t gain a pound. I starve for a day and look pity the next day. So first of all, I’m aiming to increase my appetite before I try to pack on some flesh. There are things that I could do/medicines that I can take to slow down my metabolic rate but I really do NOT want to mess up with that! People tell me all the time how it’s a gift to have a naturally fast metabolism. But all I want to do now is to put on some pounds. My doc has prescribed me a tonic – to improve overall health and appetite. (He is hell sure it’d trigger my hunger and that’s exactly what I want!)
I’ve also been taking B complex capsules (brand – Becosules) regularly these days. It helps me my hair; helps keep my mouth ulcers in control! They’re getting worse by each passing day. And mind you, you hardly get to eat anything when you have nasty mouth ulcers that hurt like anything! I wish I get rid of them soon.
Okay, coming to the tonic (the supplement) I was talking about.. the only downside is that it makes me sleepy! If I take it at night and go to sleep, I sleep for at least 12 hours. And hey, that’s very bad for my work!
On coming weeks, I shall be writing more on my weight gain journey! Do let me know if you want me to do a weight gain challenge on the blog! Would you be willing to participate with me? I’d really like to hear from you on that! Drop your suggestions on the comment section below!
For now, I’m trying to take the tonic (I’ll reveal the name, details etc on my next series) before 7 so that I’d sleep by 8 and wake up earlier the next morning. But.. Will I be able to finish all my tasks before the clock hits 7 PM? Now that’s a question but I still shall try my best!
P.S: Cooking Sambar, veggies, some curries and freezing them would help me a lot! Kitchen-works consume a lot of my time! So I’m trying to work on the ‘freezer cooking’ part. In that case, I’ll just wake up, thaw the curry and make dosa for our breakfast. I can also use the curries for our lunch and dinner! :)
