I don’t really know what to write anymore. I have decided I do not want a neurodiversity blog anymore, as I don’t know what to write. I am just going to start writing about me, because there is more to say. I will change the name of my blog when I renew the blog domain name at the end of my first year.
Anyway, I was trying to write about dieting here. I found that when I start losing weight, the people around me are offering treats more than I would expect and we eat takeaways more than I thought. I don’t know if it just happens when I lose weight. I have had trouble sticking with any dieting. In the last three or four months I have kept starting diets, starting out strong than finding I couldn’t continue for one reason or another.
About a month ago, I got diagnosed with high diabetes. I’m not toally sure what it means, if I have high blood sugar or diabetes 2. I think it’s still reversible. The medical centre I go to suggested I make changes. I also have high cholesterol and fatty liver. Basically I have to do intense exercise, cut back on saturated fat, sugar and salt, and eat more nuts and oily fish. I hate exercise. Probably because I am so unfit. I want to start running, but I am still quite heavy (my bmi is 36). I don’t like huffing and puffing, or sweating. I have started going for daily walks with my dad. My step goal is 15,000 steps per day. I don’t do high intensity exercise, but I do a lot of walking. I walk as fast as I can, which is not fast at all, because I find that my body feels quite stiff. I probably need to warm up before I head out, but I’m not sure how to warm up without running. I might try doing some dancing or zumba before I head out. I need to stretch as well. I get spasms in my feet that are really uncomfortable. So yeah. In 2022 (this year), I need to eat well and exercise. I have a goal to lose about half of my original body weight. Hopefully I won’t need skin removal at the end.
Also with food, I don’t know if this is a neurotypical, Autism or just a general person thing, but if I go out to eat, I would rather order something I am familiar with and know that I like, than order something I don’t know if I like, because I don’t want to waste money. I also buy a coke product as a drink most of the time, because I like it better than the other soda products. I still like some of the other fizzy drinks, but I don’t enjoy them as much as I don’t really buy them. Same if I get chips. They have to be salt and vinegar flavoured. So what do you think? is this normal?
