I loved your account of you 5dpt. It really helped me. At 9 months out i am already slipping and sliding.
Carbs and i have been best friends again. Thanks for the wake up call. Goinv to read my binder from my wls surgeon tonight. Ing
Back on track.
I had a day something like this yesterday. It scared me too. Different foods, different quantities. Same feelings and thoughts.I just passed my six month surgiversary. Today I have been much more on track. Yes, I have a lot of extra stressors going on in my life right now. My home is being foreclosed/sheriff sale tomorrow. Haven't figured out where we're moving yet. My brother in law is in surgery today having his tonsil removed due to cancer, he just got his cancer diagnosis 2 weeks ago. My 19 year old daughter is in Africa this week on a missions trip for the first time and of course I am worried about her. My mother is in town (she lives across country) she only comes once a year, and let's just say I have mother issues like you do. Feeling neglected mainly. Whew. I had no idea really how much all of that was bothering me until I read this blog entry. Trying to comfort with food. Does it ever end? Thanks Genet for sharing with us, and helping me get some insight.

Keri, glad to hear that your nausea is gone and that your pain is manageable. Hang in there. I said a prayer for you. You will be a succes! You are strong, I can hear it in your posts. Keep us updated, we are rooting for you and thinking about you! Wish you all the best!
Hang in there. 17 pounds in 6 weeks is really great. Once you have surgery your tool will help you and it will get better. Keep doing what you're doing. The pre surgery dieting was brutal for me. You are doing fantastic!
