I thought everything was perfect as long as I took my anti convulsive medications, didn’t drink alcohol and slept eight hours every night. I forgot that I shouldn’t gain weight, at least not too much. Gaining weight affects my medication levels; if they are too low it could lead to a seizure.
I have only had to worry about that now, when I realized I have put on a few pounds. It’s not a lot, but if I don’t take care of this now it can lead to a much bigger weight gain which can also lead to seizures and I do not want that.
As soon as I realized how much weight I gained, I decided to make a change. The first thing I had to do was stop eating snacks. I had started eating in between meals and that’s not good, snacking is one of the worst things you can do. This had never been a problem for me because my mom didn’t teach us to snack, we just ate our three meals and maybe a desert but no snacks. Another thing is I was drinking too much soda, it was diet but it was still too much. Three cans of Coke Zero in one day plus one cup of orange juice is way too much but I thought I didn’t have to worry because I exercise at least five days a week.
Since this is about my health, I decided this couldn’t wait and I started making changes this morning, starting with waking up one hour earlier to have a little more time to workout. With more time I used the stationary bike before doing the video routine.
Today I also ate my three meals, breakfast before exercising, lunch before work and dinner after work. By five o clock I had had all my meals. I also only had one soda today. The limit was two sodas since I had juice with my breakfast but just one was enough.
If I keep this up, I can get back to my normal weight in no time.
