Ugh. And I am terrible with that.

Well, my philosophy is that I just want to do a good job with this surgery. I don't want to be a failure.

I'm having big issues with constipation. The more I tell myself not to "strain" the more I feel like I do. Def not getting my Water in. Really need to focus on that! Sleeved on 8/15

I do not. Been using milk of magnesia and a stool softener which I stopped because it's a pill and my drs office said pills shouldn't be larger than a tic tac. So yesterday I got Miralax and took a dose. It is the only "struggle" I'm currently having.

I am currently Pushing myself to get in my fluids and My Protein as yesterday was the first day I was able to get my fluids and my protein down in a week, SO I CONSIDER IT A WIN :) I also forced myself to work out yesterday ( a very low workout) today Im paying for it as my sites on my stomach are very much painful today...I am currently as many other experiencing the 3 week stahl.. My doctor did give me a heads up on this said it could only last a couple days but can last up to two weeks I have been doing my very best to only jump on the scale at my doctors office (leaves me not feeling let down this way) and taking measurements once every 2-3 weeks ... I HOPE EVERYONE ELSE is doing well

I'm still having trouble with the protein bit but that's because my surgeon's office recommended that I get in 85 g of protein a day.

Also, I weighed myself and in the first time in a week, I'm down. Not much, I'm still 1,9 kg larger than I was last Sunday, but hopefully, this is the start of a positive trend.

My Protein is a every single day battle for me... some days I do amazing other days not even a little bit the Gurd is really getting the best of me.... I am however am trying to be positive I hope that if you are indeed in a stahl that it will pass quickly I dont no how you manage 75 GMs of protein I struggle with 60 most days I only get about 40 some days none.. :( I hope it gets better for you... everyone keeps telling me it gets better just keep moving along, somedays I just dont no though

I feel the same with the Protein. Are you in meds for the reflux? I really really hope it goes away! 😩

Fortunately, I'm not. When I was a kid, I had really bad acid reflux but now, it's not nearly as bad.

I am holding yesterday's weight loss, as when I weighed in today, I am still at 139 kg even. Still 1,9 kg up from where I was last Sunday but hopefully, this will start to come down.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it

      I have to say, even more than 2 years out, it is so much easier to be good when your busy and so easy to go wrong when your bored.  Crappy weather and the wife is sick so i feel trapped in this house and i have to really watch myself.  At least the holiday leftovers are gone.
      Going to get out this week even if for only a few hours, maybe go see  Ford vs Ferrari that looks real good.
      Ok, whining over, I hope everyone is doing well and had a good thanksgiving.

        I hear ya. I notice the only time I ever "feel like eating" when I'm not actually hungry is when I'm watching TV for too long.
