I'm obese, and have been for at lest eight years now, perhaps ten. I've started to do more active and regular work outs in the last week and a half then I have in over five years. And while I love the fact that I've lost five pounds already, I'm worried about some of the other things that have been happening.
Let me say first that I have been drinking lots of water, and VitaminWater. I've also been eating three meals a day. Most days I don't have any fast food, normally my worst is a soft taco or some pizza. I've quit soda, of all kinds. And I'm working out at lest an hour a day, with two rest days a week. (my bf and I like to visit friends and I don't have a travel friendly hoop yet. My hoop is 42 inchs)
The third and fourth days I was working out I had head aches, pulsing large area head aches that started at the out sides of my eyes and worked their way to the back of my head. This week I've been having indigestion issues. I had to stop hooping to run to the bathroom. (explosive issues, sorry for TMI)
I'm not sure if anyone will be able to help me with the information I've put forth. I'd like to reassure everyone that I'm in good health besides my weight. And I'm not going to stop hooping.
A purge of some sort, maybe a water fast, or veggie fast or something is needed? I've ate poorly for years, thinking that I'd start taking care of myself tomorrow, and tomorrow never came. So now I'm worried that I may need to get a little extreme. Any ideas of how to do so safely?
(I'm 25, 5'5", 220lbs, not sure if those stats will be helpful in your advice.)
