I'm not sure that's true. And I'm sure she wasn't talking about things, like complications, that are outside of our control. In fact, it is completely about doing what *IS* in our control.

I have had complications (both medical and situational) that I worked with my team to work with and around. They modified my requirements which I worked hard to accomplish. In spite of my issues, it was STILL about working my program and doing MY job. Whining wouldn't help.

We have a job to do. We chose to accept it. We need to do it the best we can.

Complications make it harder, but it still is up to us to do what we can.

I'm sure you're not advocating that complications mean we don't have to still do our best to succeed? Nor is Lelaini.

Im advocating that complications can make someone a negative statistic and complications are not something a person would choose therefor the message doesnt take these things into account. I advocate for everyone to do the best they can but some people will still fail and some due to no fault of their own. HTH

The ill feeling you felt is it the dumping syndrome people have talked about? A friend of mine had a bypass 5 years ago and said when I'm cleared for solid food to watch out for dumping syndrome and she said it feels like you ate to much and its either coming up or you sleep. I have to have a timer to remind me to eat. Im not craving anything or hungry I start to feel a bit of cramp and drink Water and it goes away. My incisions just started hurting after feeling nothing in the last two days. I felt like crap after getting home from work and taking off my pants and my lower incisions scab came off with my pants. They are not warm to touch but have a red ring and are hard around them. No fever so I haven't visited the er. Not sure if anyone else has experienced this it will be one month post surgery on the 24th.

Moominman... take everything in strides. Learn from the bad feeling. We all have faith in you and you can do this!

it wasn't dumping - it was moving along way too fast with eating. Dumping usually includes things like heart palpatations, sweating, weakness, and dizziness. It's usually the result of eating too much sugar - or for some, too much fat.

I feel like crying. Really let myself down.

I can't believe I've been so stupid. 15 days post op and I thought I'd try a small McDonalds (6 nuggets and plain hamburger). I feel very ill now. And it wasn't even worth it. Was disgusting. Argh so mad at myself!

Will i'm sure you now know that it was wrong.... but no use crying over spilled milk. What's important to remember is how this made you feel...... Physically and emotionally.

I always stick to this way of eating..... one Rule: Only eat at a table. Never in the car, never on a couch, never in the bed..... When we start with Not eating at the table we open ourselves up to so many dangers. I know i had to find this out the hard way. Eating in the car leads to fast food and fast food leads to bad food choices. It also leads to hurried eating, Which leads to overeating, which leads to no weight loss or a weight gain. Eating on the couch leads to eating in front of the tv, which leads to not paying attention to how we are eating, which leads to eating too fast and again.... Overeating. Eating in bed is the same, but it's mostly junk food.

I learned there (for me) there was a right way to satisfy my cravings.... Portions. Example: chips, i would open the bag, count out 4-6 chips, close the bag, and return it to the closet. Sit at the table and one by one slowly eat till it was like mush .... by the time i was at prob 4 i was good... threw the rest away.... don't think about putting them back in the bag... that will lead to you impulsively reach in the bag. I have to throw in the garbage disposal.

Hello

It is okay. Please stop beating yourself on the head. It was one time and you learned your lesson. The goal here is to feel better. How do you feel today? What sensations are you feeling that maybe I can give you some tips with a home remedy?

You know what, I had some "rough" comments lately, most because I have felt so hopeless seeing all the issues and the lack of seeking information by ones own, but - this was really harsh and way down low on being empathetic. Couldn't you have formulated this a little bit different? Just a tad, (so you don't seem like our pal down in Aussie)?

No. That was a SERIOUS mistake at 2wks out. You obviously don't get it.

THIS MESSAGE IS FOR SLOWNSTEDY-please show empathy for others. They know that they made a wrong move. This is an area where you can vent and seek some tips, recommendations and advise. JUST BE NICE. It is not nice to be MEAN with your words.
