One Small Step at a Time


Exactly a year ago, I was diagnosed with a gallstone. The doctor said it was quite big and she recommended that I have it removed, although she assured me that there is no rush as it was not an emergency case. That made me think. If there is really no rush and since it wasn't an immediate concern, I thought I could find ways to avoid surgery. Holistic healing came to mind. My mom's friend recommended a Chinese doctor who does acupuncture.

I also did some research about the foods I should eat and avoid. Fatty meat, salty food and anything fried should be avoided. It was hard during the first few months because I loved dairy and anything salty. I avoided beef and pork and turned to chicken breast, fish and vegetables. It took some getting used to, but one advantage that I was really happy about is I lost weight. Yes, finally! After years of trying to lose weight, I finally got rid of the pounds, even without exercise. I lost almost 30 pounds. It felt really great, but after a few months, I've grown tired of my diet. I know, though, that I can't go back to the way I used to eat because I still have the gallstone issue.

I have to get creative with my everyday meals and find yummy, but healthy food swaps. I still get a small dose of dairy once in a while, but I make sure I consume the light or low-fat dairies. I search the internet for healthier ways to prepare food and for healthier swaps and I am glad to discover that there are many dishes I never imagined would actually taste good.

Eating healthy is important, but you really don't have to make big changes to your diet to do this. One small step at a time; that's how you should start. As you grow more comfortable with these changes, you will be able to embrace it and finally make more substantial and permanent ones.

I'm ok now sis! My gallstone issue is manageable, so long as I don;t eat fatty food and I drink plenty of water. :) Thanks!
