Topic: Cleo/Ricki's BIG Sale on Now!

I just popped into the Ricki's/Cleo combo store close to work and found they have a huge sale on right now. Pretty much everything 30% off. I bought 3 pairs of pants and 3 tops (2 pairs of pants were 50% off and cost $20.00 each) for $131.00 tax in.

Prior to WLS 1 pair of pants would have cost me that alone.

Great casual and work clothes and extremely good prices.

Good morning :)

CC, I think I missed posting on Friday because I got up and got caught up doing things and had to run out to do a few errands. Then I met DH for our lunch date :)

Last night I had a brain fart -- I have to go for fasting blood work this morning and I ate a midnight snack. So now I'm killing time to at least hit 8 hours. I will take a snack with me to eat as soon as I'm done. Then I will be hibernating for the rest of the day. We were out yesterday visiting family that don't really have AC, so I melted a bit. Will drink lots of water today!!

QOTD: I love gardening but my thumb is not very green. We got three strawberries from our plants last week and something has eaten everything else. We should have raspberries soon. And the tomatoes and basil are doing well. We only have one raised box and a couple pots as the dogs roam that area.

Post-op three years and three months.

Breakfast - protein bar

Snack - Greek yogurt

Lunch - leftover pork

Snack - PB wrap

Dinner - leftover pork

Snack - wedding cake (yesterday was our one year anniversary)

All water and vits.

Topic: RE: Optifast day 4

It also sounds like you are going into ketosis. Flu like symptoms are a sign of this. Try using a netty pot and ask if you can take antihistamines.

I had and have read on here where people think they are getting sick right before surgery. I was afraid my surgery would be cancelled. Now I think it was just ketosis and flu-like symptoms from the Opti. Do you have your last shake before bed? You can add less water and make it more of a pudding and it may help with bedtime hunger. Soon you won't be hungry. It usually starts after day 5 that hunger starts to dissipate.

You've got this.

Topic: RE: Gallbladder removed and I'm home

Hi, I had RNY on August 27th 2017. On April 27th 2018 (6 month surgiversry) I was hospitalized for ulcers. June 12th I had my gallbladder removed. I do think I was having gallbladder attacks for a long time because of the lower right back pain I had been having. I feel really down and discouraged right now. If it weren't for this surgery I wouldn't be having all these problems right now. I must admit that I regret having this surgery. I'd rather be fat and have my health back and my system in tact than deal with this nightmare. Being skinny isn't so great. Sounds counterintuitive but I had no ailments prior to this surgery. Was just fat. I have so much disgusting skin on my body. Now with my gallbladder removed every time I eat something I feel horrible sharp pains in my lower back. My husband doesn't understand what I'm going through and it feels so depressing.
