Im still out of town, so no scale. I will check in again tomorrow. I had 6 pounds to go to reach my 100 pounds lost goal when I left town on the 27. Im curious to see how close I got!
Take care everyone!
I was on vacation all week but I had a really rough week - I had a severe IBS attack and spent Thursday through Sunday in bed. Not a good way to spend my vacation at all. I normally weigh once a week but I had been weighing daily because I was concerned about weight gain with Christmas food - I lost 5 pounds overnight after the attack which is so NOT good. I gained 2 of it back but I'm having a hard time eating regular food right now.
So I'm stuck eating yogurt and boiled eggs. Before RNY my go to IBS foods were orzo and sourdough bread. I don't eat either of those things anymore because I don't eat carbs. But I caved and am eating bread because it soothes my stomach right now. Even something bland like chicken is too much for me.

That's got to be disappointing. I'm sorry your holidays were a bust. But I think it's important not to beat yourself up about eating bread. You need to do what you have to to heal your body.
Sorry you are feeling rotten and it screwed up your vacation. Yes, don't beat yourself up about the bread.
You are self aware and will ease back into your regular food routine when you can tolerate it.
I stalled a bit last week, likely due to Christmas carbs. I ate nothing like years past (very small amounts, no bread, no booze, no soda), but I did indulge in a few bites of pie and other goodies. I don't usually dump if it's small amounts, and even if I do, it's more of a nauseated icky feeling than anything more severe. So I have to be very careful to limit. But still ate more carbs than I usually eat now. But, back on track this week!

I gained 5 pounds over the holiday. Lolz on me. But I've been rocking the last few days, so I'm not too worried.

Next goal: get far enough below my partner's weight that the scale doesn't ask me who I am AND 150 by March for plastics.

I am going to warn you will get the question at the consultation if you are still losing... they like to see you stabilized ... in my case I was losing 2-3 lbs a month for awhile, he hedged a little but was obviously OK with it.
well, I'm home and weighed in. Down four pounds this week, for an official total for 2016 of 98lbs! So close to 100, but I'll take it!
I'm still retaining fluids from increased sodium, and not drinking enough, so I'm feeling confident I'll reach that milestone this week! ... maybe I just jinxed myself...
Goals:278(100 pounds lost) then 267 (the weight I was at in my 20s)
Keep it up folks!
