    Baba Wawa got a reaction from ☠carolinagirl☠ in What Fibromyalgia did to me   
    Cheryl, there is some discussion regarding a link between aspartame and auto-immune disorders, such as fibromyalgia. It was thought by many to be the band, but now it appears to be diet related. I don't know if you use aspartame, but if you do, avoiding it might help your condition. I don't use it, since it gives me aural migraines.
    Hope you feel better soon.

    People can be so insensitive! I order soup when I go out and ask for a side plate to share with my husband...one or two bites on the side plate, no comments
    Why did your pouch dilate? Mine did, just slightly last year when my stoma just closed up, almost completely with very little fill. Since a complete unfill in June, I'm still dealing with band damage to my esophagus. Eating is a pain.
    Sorry you're dealing with this, I hope removal goes smoothly, hugs!

    You've got to take it easy on yourself! You're human, fallible and succumbed to temptation. Naturally thin people do it too, enjoy it and don't beat themselves up over it like we do. Hugs AJ, you will get right back on track. Now wipe those tears and pat yourself on the back for being brave and accountable

    i am most afraid of my grandbaby being ashamed of me because of what i look like...the insecurity monster is still nearby and all those years of dieting ups and downs and comparing myself to whomever def has took its toll...but she will now be able to see her meme healthier and def more happier. and that is what made me take that final push to do something about it..to be (healthy). not a number on a scale. but to be able to push her around the block in her stroller. i can now.

    I keep a bowl of cucumber, peppers, and onions in vinegar in my fridge at all times. Then when I can't fight the beast that is head hunger it is something very low in calories. It usually does the trick for me.

    Sorry to hear about your insides. Follow the doctors orders. I am happy the band did help you lose 90 lbs. That is amazing.
