  1. Yes! I got it too. They treated me with flagyl, a hard core antibiotic. Thankfully it went away. Get thee to a doctor! Xo
  2. Thanks, y'all. I appreciate it. I've gone back to eating clean and training dirty and back down 5 of 7 since my last whinging. I think most of it has been water weight (and those darn jelly beans!) This row is a long one to hoe, to be certain. glad I can come on and whine. xo
  3. "I'm cold." "Babe, it's 72 degrees." "shush... I'm cold" ::teeth chatters::: I don't have a layer of fluff to keep me warm anymore. I'm okay with wearing size medium layers!
  4. Mine was diet cherry dr pepper.. oh the burn.. oh the sweet, sweet coldness. Now, oh the bloat.. the evil, evil creeping back up the esophagus and the feel of being violet beauregarde being rolled away to the juicer. Alas, I don't miss it anymore.
  5. Not quite, actually. May 18th was my surgery date and I'm inching closer to it. I've also noticed in the last few weeks I'm backsliding. Not into unhealthy food choices, but my weight is creeping back up. I'm happiest around 163-165 and I'm currently at 171. (( insert rage face here )) Yes, 7 whole pounds off my feel-good range. That shouldn't be a big deal, right? right? Well it IS. I'm finding myself really struggling to get these back off. I'm really annoyed. I also deal with anxiety/panic disorder so when I can't get out and run off the 'fight or flight' feeling, I'm finding myself with my head in the fridge. YES, it's 100 cal popcorn or grapes or cheese cubes, but STILL. I'm turning my face to food again! No!! Staaaahp! And now that I've noticed it, I have a huge headcold and can't get out and walk it off. I can't exercise to burn it off. I was up to walking 3-5 miles a day on breaks and I'm scheduled to RUN (yes run!) a 5k in August. All my training is shot. I'm super stressed. I can't deal. I see myself as a whale again. I'm getting fluffy. I'm failing. Help. Thanks for letting me whine. sad nerd
  6. Hiya from Georgia! I decided because i have a history of Crohn's and anemia. It was a no brainer for me.
  7. Depression is difficult because it is our very minds who betray us and trick us into thinking it's okay. I live with panic and anxiety disorder. And now that I can't "eat my stress" so to speak, I find my anxiety off the charts. This winter has been a real tough one - lack of sun, lack of ability to get out an exercise the 'fight or flight' response, the holidays, and several deaths have happened to us this winter. I know how you feel. You're not alone. I hope it gets better for you and you're able to find relief!
  8. I called it "buyer's remorse." Once you adjust to the new-normal and see the results, the regrets will probably fade.
  9. I'm so sorry that happened to you. It amazes me how people can throw words on a screen and think it doesn't affect the person on the other side. I think we've all been there at some point in time or another with our decision. Friends, family, strangers on the internet. Some are overly worried, and others are just uneducated. Sometimes both. *hugs*
  10. I was diagnosed with Crohn's in 2004. The doc put me on a regimen of Asacol - 4 pills, three times a day. Within three weeks it had cleared up a CONSIDERABLE amount. I had my gallbladder removed in 2007 and *knocks on wood* I haven't had any problem since. I'm not on medication anymore. I've been very lucky. Good luck to you! Invest in lots of imodium!
  11. omg! poor girl! I hope you can get back up soon. That sounds like a special level of dante's hell. lol
  12. Thank you. This has been missseraaabbllleee.. I want and need to DO stuff. I'm not used to sitting on my rear anymore! I hate being knocked down.
  13. Thanks for the suggestion. I actually took that advice and went back to sugar free carnation instant. I blend it with ice, skim milk and some cinnamon & decaf instant coffee for a frappe flavor. Totally calming on my stomach.
