Getting back to healthy eating after the holidays
The following link is from the Mayo Newsletter and reminds me and anyone else how to re-focus and get back to healthy eating if we have over indulged or eaten foods that are on the “illegal” list. I have definitely been off the wagon too many times since Thanksgiving and with Christmas and New Year’s looming close, I need this reminder to get myself back on track as soon as possible. I have an appointment with my endocrinologist and I know the test results will warrant a lecture and a reminder from him. He is good about understanding that an off day is normal, but then right back to work.
I hope this link works.

@johnbishop You had mentioned that which is why I commented on the one I have. I really do find it helpful to find that I am retaining fluid. When I was in the last few weeks before my transplant my fluid retention was incredible. As I said, it balances that with BMI for some reason and my BMI was at around 12! I gained about 35 pounds of fluid in a few weeks. When I gain fluid it takes a while for it to all drain, as in sometimes as long as two weeks. The last time we were in Italy, when I was sick but didn't know what was wrong yet, my feet ballooned up to HUGE. I had to buy some cheap sandals that fastened with velcro, nothing else fit on my feet. That was when it took weeks to get back to normal. Of course that I was retaining fluid was obvious.
Thanks for the link.
Have a great day!
@healingone, Good Morning. I would like to extend a welcome to Mayo Connect. I see that you are a new member, and I am happy that you have found us and a link that is going to be helpful to you.
I am intrigued by the user name that you have selected, @healingone. I like the positive message that it suggests, that you are in the process of healing or moving forward with improving your current situation. Am I correct? I am a transplant recipient and a volunteer mentor, and my own health experience tells me that we are on a lifelong journey of healing and taking care of ourselves.
What brings you to Mayo Connect? For example, Is healthy eating something that you are interested in? Are you trying to get back on track with a healthier eating habit, or are you looking for a way to maintain a healthy habit?
I am starting to learn self care and gaining wellness.
I was recently was diagnosed with Diabetic Kidney Disease and Hashimoto's. I remembered my training in Jacksonville's Mayo Pain and Rehabilitation program and reached out to one of the nurses to see how my new diagnoses related to my Central Sensitization Syndrome.
I searched for information about my new diagnoses and found Connect in the process.
Yes, gaining self care and wellness skills are now lifelong necessities.
Have a great day!
