  1. They got rid of the trapped gas enlarging my sigmoid, but I still have some chronic issue as well, probably mobility. The GI doc recommends staying off prebiotics and probiotics and using miralax if needed, thinking less gas will be produced. My weight stabilized up to 136 or so, but my appetite tends to be decreased yet, so I can tell something is going on (not the norm of a past overeater). Prescription potassium fixed my blood level and my energy is way better now. Lol, writing this on vacation on Marco Island, beautiful here.
  2. Just had emergency colonoscopy this morning to relieve severe bloating, maybe a partial blockage or mobility issue? They are not sure. I ignored chronic diarrhea and bloating over the last year and only went in because my appetite disappeared 3 days and I was very fatigued (did lose 10 lbs though). My doctor kept asking about my distended abdomen, and I was like ok, your right, it looks bad. Plus my potassium was very low, 2.3, which is 12 hrs of IV fluid. Just sharing with everyone not to avoid symptoms that could be serious.
  3. I gained back 10 and just lost it, but it jumps up and down. Someone recommended gluten free dairy free anti inflammatory food diet. Works, but almost too tough to stay on it. I am not really allergic to anything anyway. Thinking of all of us in this long term process. Prayers and luck for us all!
  4. Dress last Sunday for church.
  5. At a family reunion, 3.5 yrs post. My sister on the left and me on the right. Striped tshirt dress Amazon $15.99.
  6. I think I lost about that much in 3-4 months. Down is always good!
  7. I stopped at 2 yrs then lost 7 more lbs with a bad cold (no sense of smell), but that came back on, and I waver 138-143 or so. I exercise every day though.
  8. Seared ahi and mock potato salad (cauliflower instead). Mint my cookie ice cream for dessert.
