    I haven't really had one day without some kind of throwing up. I have an aversion to Protein which is seeming like everything but cottage cheese at this point. Only thing I seem to keep down along with peaches. I just want to eat something else without spitting up like a baby. I can't see to keep medicine or Vitamins down on a regular basis. I'm sure this is all temporary but I'm ready for a change. I also never feel full so if not measured too much will also make me throw up. My new name throwsupalotupus! Lol! I just closed on a house and I'm leaving for ohio tomorrow. So with moving and a job promotion I think there just isn't enough time to work on my new lifestyle as well. Everything they told me not to do in the first year after surgery but how do you say no to bettering your life? :/ Good note though I put on a size 14 today for the first time in ten years....not comfy though. Lol. I got the keys to my first house and for the first time since surgery I can get up from a sitting or laying down position without becoming lightheaded or feeling like I'm going to pass out. I really hate complaining but with the flu this week I think I just flatlined for a second on my positiveness. I think we will all hit a point where we wtf did I do to myself but I have to remind myself that all the downs that I'm describing are only temporary. so for today I am down but tomorrow is a new day! Hugs everyone! We must keep chugging away!

  19. Well hello again! I really don't like this app :( hard to keep up with all your updates. I'm going to have to pull the laptop out and catchup. I hurt myself once again but that is a common occurance even before surgery! I got some applesauce and soup to stay down! Yay! I hope you all are doing great! Hard to see what the scale and clothes are tellingme but on clear liquids what did I expect?!? Lol

    Okay! Sigh I threw every meal I ate yesterday up and passed out as well. Urine is clear so getting enough fluids and getting about 40 G Protein in and 400-500 calories. I can eat about a cup and never feel full. I don't know what I'm doing wrong. Positive side. I did try Vitamins today and I'm holding those and Breakfast down. Each day is a new challenge but I'm conquering them in stride. Baby steps. Just keep swimming.

    I had gas pain until I started taking gasx strips on a regular basis. Probably not a good idea but I take them every couple hours even when I'm not gassy. I was feeling super bloated until I got my pottying on track with murilax.

    Welcome Heidi. You have come to the right place for sharing or should I say over sharing. Lol. I think anything goes in here since we are all in it together and here to support. New thing for me. Let Greek yogurt get room temperature. Add 3oz Water so it's thinner than a milkshake and eat. 5 times a day. 60 Protein and extra 15 oz Fluid. I'm going to get bored soon. I just need the food dreams to stop. Lol Just keep swimming swimming swimming.
  24. I'm sitting in the surgical waiting room waiting to get taken back. Just now getting nervous but everything will be okay. Talk to you soon
