Things are going well

Sign in to follow this  


Everything has been going very well. I'm down 43 1/2 lbs. This week has been a yo-yo week. I lost a few pounds then gained 1/2 lb then lost and gained the same 1/2lb again. Ugh. Not sure what's going on with that, but I am still down for the week.


I was still going to the gym doing the walking/riding/running for 4 miles until last week. I sprained my knee and am in a brace. It is getting better each day, but it's disappointing because I can't exercise now. Hopefully by next week I'll be back to the gym.


The only issue I'm having right now is constipation. Which seems to be pretty common amoungst us sleevers. I guess when most of your diet consists of meat, that's the reaction you get. I was doing one chewable fiber pill a day and recently upped it to two a day. I really don't care for them though because they have carbs in them and I'm trying very hard to keep my carbs between 20 -30 per day. One of the threads here talked about Miralax and how good it works. I'll pick some of that up today and start trying it.


Hope everyone post sleeve is doing great, and those of you pre sleeve, hang in there...it's so worth it.

Look at you, 43 lbs. that is GREAT! I have constipation and began drinking Aloe Vera from GNC everyday and it has done wonders. 1 capful in the morning and evening. Think about it, I feel so much better.

Thanks for the suggestion Debbie. I did end up getting some of the Miralax that was mentioned on the board, and it works great! I may look for that alao vera also. Hope you are a having a great weekend.
