OK seriously... the bloat...when does it go?? Is it really possible that I will look 5 months pregnant for the rest of my life?
I haven't binged in over 2 weeks now and i'm wondering if maybe i stretched out my guts so bad that they will never go back to normal?? People who are farther ahead of me in recovery, when did yours start to go down? I'm really annoyed. I've been happy with my progress in almost every other way but this just seems to be getting worse!! Nothing makes the swelling go down! I've tried extra water...smaller meals...tea...eating less beans/fruit...
I feel like maybe if it gets any worse I can start balancing things on it like a shelf soon!
Yeah, I know, I used to eat ALL KINDS of crap...in addition to the sheer volume of all that binge food, there was laxatives, a zillion supplement pills and for a while last year I was eating like 3 days' worth of fiber powder all in one shot (what a stupid idea! do not try -- bloats you like NONE ELSE and feels horrible). So I know I've been mean to my insides. :( I just hope all that abuse didn't cause permanent stretched-out tummy. Nothing de-rails my motivation to keep on recovering like, oh, the possibility of PERMANENTLY LOOKING FAT. boo :(
