I probably shouldn’t be eating oatmeal if I want to shrink my fibroids but…


I just had some oatmeal. It was a very small amount. Probably less than half of a serving. I had to make some for my son and there was a little left over so I decided to have it because I haven’t had anything to eat yet for the day and it’s 12:03PM. So why, you are probably wondering, am I making oatmeal for my son at 12:03PM? Well, I was supposed to make it hours ago but I was busy getting this website up and running, transferring my stuff from the website where I had previously been posting about my progress.

I don’t know if oatmeal is good or bad to eat when you have fibroids. I haven’t really focused my fibroid shrinking efforts around food as far as deciding that I can’t eat this food or that food. I’ve mostly just realized I can’t eat lots of heavy foods and I have to eat in very small quantities. This has worked really well for me; but I’ll admit I have my days when I have a little too much. It’s never that I over eat. I don’t have the room in my stomach to eat a normal amount of food. Because of the size and position of my fibroids it takes very little eating before I’ve reached the capacity of what my stomach can comfortably contain. What that means is that I have to really eat like a bird just to be able to sit without discomfort; and when I go a good 2 – 3 weeks eating like a bird, my fibroids appear to shrink.

In some of my old posts I talk about how important it is to me not to lose too much weight. I know to some people that will sound stupid, but I like having womanly curves. I didn’t always have them. In fact I was significantly underweight even into my early 30s. I’m a healthy size now and I want to keep my figure where it is. I don’t want back the twigs I had for legs. I also don’t want back the thick tree trunks I had gotten for a while there after I put on enough weight to be considered overweight. I’m fit and healthy right now and I want to stay that way. I don’t want to be too thin or too fat; and too many days eating like a bird I start to lose too much weight so I have to eat more; but when I eat more for too many days in a row the fibroids gobble up all the stuff that they need out of what I’m eating and fatten back up as well.

So I’m still trying to figure out what I can do to eat enough to maintain my weight yet keep the fibroids down while not really having to change “what” I eat every day, because right now I can’t afford a fancy diet built around my fibroids.

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.
