Missing one day of vitamins



Recommended Posts

So, during the week, I'm very good on Vitamins. I have a timer on my computer at work that helps me keep track of these. When I'm home on the weekends, things are a little less easy to handle.

Is it really a big deal if I miss a single day, so long as I'm good the rest of the week?

I was just on a 3-day weekend trip and forgot to bring my Vitamins with me. I felt fine the entire time and just started again when I got home. I can't imagine that missing them one day is going to matter at all.

It's not going to kill you to miss a dose here and there, but try to set a timer on your phone for weekends or lay them out on the bathroom counter or something if you can.

I use a free app called Medisafe or I would never remember a couple of midday ones.

Shhhhh I miss days all the time (not everything but because i simply forget Calcium a lot) but I believe that supplements are intended to fill in the gaps that you might miss from foods. If you are getting valuable nutrients in food sources it's possible you might still be covered *a little*

      I just looked through all my old pants after my pre-op pants started getting to big. Keep in mind that I wear men's pants (usually cargos) because I am so tall 5'10"/5'11" ish. I also find that men's baggies tend to fit me better.
      I started out at a 44 in waist pant and quickly found that I was back down to my 42's. So even when thise got to be too big, I had to start pulling old clothes out of storage. After finding my 38's, I thought that these would not yet fit, but when I tried them on, they fit perfectly. I also found some older pants that now fit better than I remembered. What a relief! It's not like I can pop down to the store like I could do in the US and the styles here in Sweden are all skinnt jeans which I cant stand. I also found some 36's, but I'm not mentally ready to try those on yet. The biggest challenge will be buying women's clothing again.

      slow and steady wins the race.  don't get discouraged and just keep at it. Let your sleeve do its job and try not to stress yourself out.
      hope you are all having a great summer and enjoying what your sleeve has given you.

        Great reminder about how fast you can lose weight. The mind games we play with ourselves are the worst.
