  1. Wow what a difference in just 5 weeks. Amazing well done you look amazing!
  2. Welcome this is a site full of kind and caring people. I myself joined only a few weeks ago and have gained loads of support and insight
  3. Correct Aussie H just because I was advised it's not a available in Australia doesn't mean the information offered is correct that's why I posted I will research further. I have found it to be available at health food shop. Regards
  4. Thanks BurgundyBoy The pain has subsided I will research Papain.
  5. Thank you for your reply I rushed to the chemist but the pharmacist advised papaya enzyme is not available in Australia. I will do some research tomorrow to see if she is correct.
  6. Hi I totally lost my mind today whilst in a rush to get to a meeting I took a big bite of chicken I realized my error instantly I had a sharp pain in my chest and intergestion was long to follow. I am concerned the chicken will not be able to pass to my intestine? In a panic when I got home I browsed the Web and was confronted with comments and articles that scared me more. Obviously another error on my behalf why didn't I post my concern here first where I will gain honest support and genuine insight.
  7. Try focus on the fact you have lost 5 pounds YIPPEE celebrate your achievements. Ups and downs are a normal process. I look at the stalling stages exciting because I appreciate the future weight loss even more. I have also found once I excepted stalls to be part of my weight loss journey I was able to put the scales away and only use them once a week. I am almost 6 weeks post op but week 2 and 3 I was very emotional and everything did get me down, I kept reading post on TTF and draw positively from all the wonderful support on offer. Try focus on the positives just like the saying Positive brings positivity
  8. I agree get your symptoms checked out by a doctor. As for your weight gain the first step is acceptance no time for self blame as its time to believe in yourself and walk the weight loss path you have walked before and succeded.
  9. That is what happened to me I had a fresh banana shake and within 10 minutes I had a racing heart and felt like I was going to pass out. I was told by my dietician fresh fruit should have no impact
  10. Has anyone experienced dumping syndrome from fresh fruit?
  11. Hi I have been prescribed antibiotics for the flu and I am struggling to swallow the tablets twice daily and once I do I feel like the tablets stuck in my chest. Could this be due to my gastric bypass surgery almost 5 week's post op.
  12. Thank you Res Ipsa. Your support makes me feel more comfortable.
  13. Hi I am noticing that I am hungry every three hours. Is this normal 4 weeks post gastric bypass surgery?
  14. I have started saying just for today all the time, it's the only way I can bring myself back to the here and now. I am reading a great mindfulness book which is really helping me practice been present in the moment. So just for today I am not going to think about anything that has Why? But or what if. In the subject.
  15. Each day my emotional and physical health is improving. I feel a lot of change in relation to my emotional health is related to the positive support from people like yourself on this website. Thank you.
