Scaryann1's battle with eating and EDS (Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome)

RE: Scaryann1's battle with eating and EDS (Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome)
I'm still here, plugging away. :smiley: I have been averaging right around 2300 calories/day. I still have days when I struggle, but they are getting fewer all the time! Still staying right at 305 pounds.

Still doing my chainmaille, I've even set up a web site to sell it now. I will be doing my second craft show on Saturday. My first show I sold one bracelet so that covered the cost of setting up. I consider that a success! I have even expanded so that now I am working in stainless steel, brass, bronze, and aluminum. I learn new weaves almost daily. I even started working with larger rings, therefore building more muscle in my arms! My hands don't hurt nearly as much as they used to!

I guess that's it for now. I just wanted to let you all know that I'm still here, and still kicking. :smile:

Still kicking is definitely a great thing to hear! I’m glad all is well and I love to see you sticking to your calories and doing something you really like! Beautiful pieces, by the way!

I thought I'd pop in and let everyone know I'm still here and plugging away. :smiley: My summer has been crazy busy. I'm setting up at three farmer's markets! I'm exhausted and almost ready for the season to end, but not ready in the least for it to end at the same time. Does that make any sense?

I don't even remember the last time I stepped on the scales. BIG improvement huh. :smile: While this season is almost over I'm already looking to next years season. I will be setting up at two markets next season.

I still have times when I have to fight to get those last 5-600 calories in, but it gets easier every month. I have no idea how I managed to do everything I did while only eating 800 - 1200 calories a day. I'm actually starting to feel hungry again! (Although it can be annoying at times. LOL)

Wow guys, life really caught me unaware!!! I'm so sorry to have been gone for so long. I'm still here and still plugging away. Rick and I have turned our chainmaille into a very slowly growing business, so my days have been spent weaving chains and building our business. I'm sad to say that I fell right back into my old ways of eating and by the time I took time out from my schedule to see how I was eating, I was right back to around 1200 calories a day. So I'm back to working on keeping a good eating schedule and trying to keep up. LOL

I got an AFO (Ankle-foot orthotic) in January, it's AMAZING! I can walk again!!! But, now it's pushing the pain farther up my leg into my knee and hip, but I'm not giving up. I'll get fully on my feet again. I'd be totally insane by now if it wasn't for my chainmaille though.

Well, got to run. Lots of things to get done before the market on Saturday!

Summer went fast! Saturdays and Sundays were a long ways from good eating days, but the rest of the week wasn't too awful bad. I haven't been keeping track like I should, but I seem to be hanging right around the same weight I think. The only time I step on a scale is when I go to the doctors office.
