Omg Suze Im a big time belly sleeper too. Lol it was the hard part in being pregnant, not being able to sleep on belly. So maybe I'll be able to get little naps in while my kids are in school...let's hope at least

I also had my surgery 12 Jan and have been sleeping on my side for the last couple of days (with extra cushions) but am suffering with Insomnia too!

@@freshair - I have good days and not so good. I pulled a muscle in my right side while tying my shoe so I've needed to take pain med in order to sleep. Some things make me nauseous but I try things all the time to see what will work. The most difficult thing is training myself to eat slower...take 1 min between each bite. I'm getting used to it. I still have constipation and from what I'm reading, that may be something that doesn't change. I'm down 34lbs and feeling good.

How about you?

@@PhillyChick so we're almost the same i too have really good days when i can eat and get all my Water and feel full of energy. Than o have the bad days when i don't sleep at all feel groggy and get really nauseous. I've had my period simce surgery with only a 2 week break so that's sucked. Eating slower is a b#$% even a minute in between bites sometimes isn't enough I've been throwing up more the different things i try but hey I'm hanging in there. I'm at 45lbs down hoping for 5 more by the 1st of feb cause that will make it 2 months. About the constipation i had a lot the first few weeks and it was horrible so now i add bran buds to my yogurt and it's helped. I don't go daily but not constipated

      Me: Hey Siri, Is it raining outside? (for my morning walks with the dogs)
      Siri: I don't think it's raining at the moment.
      Wet Dogs: Then why are we wet? This damn Siri person is more stupid than we are.

      I received my nutrition book and checklist today! I am so very excited (and a tad bit scared too) Each day this is becoming a reality!
      I created a new blog post about how BRAVE we all are for doing this. Because I think we are! Most of us know the horrors of people calling us nasty names, saying we can't control ourselves, we are easy targets for people's verbal attacks! But I feel we are BRAVE because we are taking control over our lives and creating a new world of happiness.
