Well, I am happy to report that I am finally able to gain weight. Ever since my October 2008 surgery to take down the colostomy, I had issues with pain. So much so that I was not really able to eat much. I went on like that until my surgery in April 2013. After a year of recovery I am finally able to eat normally and I have gained weight. For the first time in 5 years I have to watch my weight.
One of the ways I am trying to cut calories is to cut back on sugar. I have been reading a lot about sugar and how unhealthy it is. However, I have a sweet tooth, so I thought I better cut back slowly. One of the ways I am trying to cut back is through the use of an alternative sweetener in my tea & coffee...which is Stevia.
By the way, I just recently looked up the benefits of Rooibos tea and was amazed. Supposedly Rooibos can help relax the body for sleep amongst other claims. Here is a link to a tea website to check out what your favorite tea can do for you: http://www.theteatalk.com
So here's to health! Hope you all are staying well, but if not, make yourself a little wellness station to pamper yourself while your body works at getting itself back to normal. Take good care and God bless you!
