Fibroids and pomegrantes experiment day 1

I will be trying to consume pomegranate in some form every day for the next 60 days to put to the test the claims that pomegranates can help in the effort to shrink fibroids. I mentioned in a previous post that my husband had a dream about pomegranates being the cure for fibroids. I know of course that pomegrantes will not cure my fibroids; but after doing a little research and finding that there has been suggestion that pomegranates can be useful for the purpose, I’ve decided it can’t hurt to give it a try. I’d rather be eating pomegrantes every day than drinking apple cider vinegar.pomegrante on faux treeThe two pomegrantes I bought to get myself started. I strung them up to my artificial tree home decor so I could take a picture.

Confession: I have not been drinking apple cider vinegar like I said I would. I just can’t keep up with it. It gets more and more difficult to drink it. I hate the smell and I don’t love the taste even when I try to disguise it. And then there’s the fact that I am going through a phase. I’ve been feeling increasingly frustrated about the fact that I can’t do any of the things I would like to do with my life. And I’ve been particularly depressed about my body. I was supposed to avoid solids for the entire month of September; but I did not avoid solids for a single day so far in the month of September. I just haven’t wanted to deal with that on top of everything else. Avoiding solids for a few days has great benefits when you’re in the right frame of mind for it. I haven’t been in the right frame of mind for it. Maybe I’ll try again for October.

Today started out well enough. I started the day with a breakfast of pomegranate seeds. I was supposed to eat lightly today but I had a bout of stress eating to calm down anxiety after an unplanned trip out to the supermarket. So I have to try to double up on my makeshift push cart laps and squats. I’m carrying a little bit more weight right now than I am comfortable having on. I’ve put on about an inch everywhere. I need to lose that inch because I’m just not comfortable in my body right now. A 5 day fast can get rid of the inch easily; but I’m concerned the fasting is the reason I gained the weight in the first place. The way things are going, if I’m not careful I will turn that 1 inch into 2 inches. I need to get back my focus; but it’s a struggle. I’m not sure what’s going on with me but I’m just not where I was earlier in the year. I am at conflict with myself, wanting to keep on trying but most days just failing to see the point.

My name is Monica. I have fibroids. My fibroids are large enough that they have transformed my figure into something I am still trying to learn how to live with. In the meantime while I try to learn how to live with my fibroids I am also trying every possible method I can find to try to shrink them naturally because I am afraid of the idea of a hysterectomy. I lived with fibroids from 2007 - 2016. I started documenting my experiences on this blog in 2012. On March 7th 2016 I had a hysterectomy out of concern that I might have ovarian cancer. It did not turn out that I had ovarian cancer. The cancer scare forced the hysterectomy I was trying to avoid, and so, I became fibroid free as of March 7th 2016. I will try to keep this blog up and running in the hope that it will be of some use to others going through what I went through.
