Went in for my yearly health checkup today. I been waiting 3 long weeks for this day as I was planning to quit my diet 3 weeks ago. But figured since the health checkup is around the corner I’d keep it up until the checkup was done. As each day got closer, the hunger pangs were getting unbearable. All I could think about was food and what it would be like not to be hungry again. To make matters worse. I had to fast for 12 hours before my checkup, which meant I had to stop eating and drinking by 7:30 the night before. This morning as I’m dragging my carcass to the subway, I’m thinking to my self if I can even make it to the facility. I told my self, you will finally get a somewhat accurate depiction of you body with the dexa scan and will get to eat soon after since they provide breakfast after they draw blood and the other necessary stuff that requires you to be fasted.
So I get there and the first thing they did was the dexa scan. I’m thinking awesome, I get to find out my body composition, and to see if all this dieting has paid off. Well.... after it was done, they just moved me to the next station. So I’m thinking, maybe they will review it all with me once I’m done with everything.
1.5 hours later, they finally said you can eat now before we proceed. I’m thinking finally. FOOD!!! To my disappointment, that was 1 pathetic breakfast they served. 1 sandwich, 1 hard boiled egg, a tiny salad and various types of drinks. So I finish eating and do the rest of my test and they say ok your done, time to pay the bill. So I ask, can I see my dexa scan result? They respond saying we will mail it out to you in 3 weeks. It is not ready yet. I’m like what!?!? I thought I can get a printout right away. Apparently I thought wrong. 😡
So as I’m heading home, disappointed, I’m thinking well at least I can not be so restrictive with my diet now. When I got home, I had my usual lunch thinking if I get hungry before my next meal, I’ll have the satisfaction of eating a snack. Well, the hunger never came. I went the rest of the day eating as I had before and didn’t feel hungry.
Now I’m heading to bed and I’m thinking. WTF. Was all that hunger pangs psychological??? Now that I know I’m not dieting anymore I’m not hungry anymore eating the exact same portions as before!?!? Damm you brain!!!!! Lol. Ok rant over. Will have to wait 3 long weeks to get my results assuming it doesn’t get delayed due to holidays.
Question is will I change my portion sizes tomorrow or keep it the same. 🤔
