  1. The liquid diet made me cranky and hungry. You'll still be successful. Try taking an antacid as you may be mistaking acid for hunger.
  2. I don't see any problem with you having pepper now. Other (sugar free) condiments are likely OK too.
  3. So glad to hear the gas pains are better! Don't worry if you can't get a whole shake down yet. Take it slow.
  4. I love this story!!! What a wonderful day!
  5. Your body is healing. Give it time. Losing an average of 4 pounds a week is no small thing! What kind of eating plan are you on? Does it have you avoiding carbs? I find I lose best while avoiding carbs.
  6. Very true. It's sooo worth it!
  7. Ouch ouch ouch! I really hope this gets better soon, Tracy. It sounds truly awful. Sending you healing hugs.
  8. I really believe your gas pains are from the gas they inflate you with for surgery. If that's true, the good news is, you're only a day or two away from that being totally gone. If it's that, gas medicines do nothing for it. Pain medicines can help if it gets really bad, but that can be constipating. Things that helped me the most were taking breaks from the abdominal wrap, changing body positions often (stand, sit, lie down, hold on to a chair and lean forward for a minute,...), & walking. I remember the gas pains being bad. I'd lie on the floor and try to physically push the gas out of me! You can call Tory and ask if you can start protein shakes early. She let me start them a little early.
  9. I have electrolyte drops and pills. I wonder if those are the same thing. Really great during exercise and the hot summer months.
  10. Hey! Look at you making smart, healthy choices all over the place. It's so hard to do that when life is being extra challenging, but you're doing it! I'm very impressed. Hugs!
  11. Wow, so much going on! Hoping the sedated MRI goes better. So sorry the first one was so emotionally draining. Great job walking your healthy body away from unhealthy food. I try to always have something decent in my purse for emergencies, but I'm not all that good about it. Glad you're enjoying soccer! I am a Big Brother (TV show) fanatic. Opening day of that is better than any holiday for me, so I can relate to that fun feeling of a good entertainment streak. Always nice to hear your updates. Hugs to you, Katya, and your new citizen!
