Tiny tummy, the dictator



Recommended Posts

Does anyone ever imagine their tiny tummy as an evil dictator who is trying to take over your body? Maybe I'm the only one?!? Sometime I imagine trying to reason with him... Me:This red, ripe Tomato is tasting so good, don't you agree tiny tummy? Evil tiny tummy: yes it is... Wait, I changed my mind. No it isn't, now let's see how fast you can run to the bathroom. Me: I don't get it, we've eaten tomatoes in things, why don't you like them by themselves? Evil tiny tummy: hahaha (evil laugh) because I decided we didn't today!

Me: tiny tummy, how come I can eat 5 ounces of Greek yogurt, 3 ounces of chicken, but only 1 tablespoon of tuna? Evil tiny tummy: because, I do what I want! Hahaha (more evil laugh).

Anyone else have funny tiny tummy struggles to share?

I think of mine as my bossy best friend. Her name is Stevie the Sleevie and she decides when enough is enough even if I want more. She refuses to like lunch meat. She sends it right back up my throat when I test her every three months. When I drink coffee she gets extremely vocal. Like Dory trying to speak whale. If I eat fibrous fruits or veggies she verbally groans and croaks at me.

That was hilarious. I actually have thought something very similar. I'm only 13 days out, but I'm pretty sure we've had this conversation. Me: Protein Shake, just like you have had every single day, so of course you will be fine with it today too. Evil Tiny Tummy: Surprise! Not easy anymore. I'm going to make you vomit. Wait. No I won't. Wait. Yes, I will. Wait, actually I won't. But NO MORE! Me: but our hair! Our gorgeous hair! Don't you want to me to still be cute? Evil Tiny Tummy: Truthfully, could care less.

Tiny tummy: I told you not to eat the salad first. Me: I wanted the healthy greens. TT: Ha, ha, now you have no room for Protein. Now you will feel guilty about not getting your Protein in. Colon: Hey, I need those greens!

Evil Tiny Tummy: Listen up! New rules! The shakes you have been drinking just fine? No longer allowed. Plain cool Water, you already knew was a no, but now I'm adding ice water to that list. Me: Um, what if I add different Crystal light flavors to the water and the Protein Drinks, I've heard adding orange to the vanilla is good. Wouldn't you like an orange Julius? Evil Tiny Tummy: OK, for now. But don't get used to it! I can change the rules anytime! Hear me? Anytime!

      Going in on Tuesday. Things are arranged (need to order a cab to the station because it's too early for a bus going there) and I'm getting more nervous by the hour.

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.
