- HEALTH TRACKER
Hey Misty, First, let me say that I am so sorry for what you are going through. Its HARD to shut out the voices of the fam & friends who say "stop losing weight already - your too skinny - you look sick" yada yada. I know b/c my fam & friends (though they love me) said & did the same thing. Personally, I dont think your relationship is not salvageable (sp)- but thats something only you & your husband can know, decide on & act upon. :) Secondly, as someone who is also newer to this board - but a long time vet of OH, let me also say that I seriously dont think you'll find anyone who will BLAME YOU or BLAST YOU here (maybe a good well intended wake up slap in the face, but its only b/c ppl care ). In fact, I am quite comfortable in saying that insted what I think you'll kind is a bunch of individuals who are in a similar position (weight wise) who have also returned to the board to find the encouraging strengh & advice on HOW TO regain (lol or reLOSE) their way. Leslee turned me on to GradPost here & i thank her so much for it. Since coming back last thursday, i've managed to regain a sence of direction & im focused & determined to get a hold of my weight. So ya, you can this too!! As far as your condition & cir****tances. I think its the best thing ever that you are reaching out. Thats the first step. Dont be afraid to ask for help. Talk to your Dr. & a councelor. Maybe you'll need to be on antidepressants for a minute?? Only your Dr. can tell you that. But it wouldnt be a bad thing. It would help you sleep better & think more clear & talking to a councelor would help sort all of that out b/c it sounds..... LMAO!! IT SOUNDS FAMILIAR IS WHAT IT SOUNDS!! (sorry, i digress, but i did the same thing), a lot like your drinking and basically what can be boiled do emotional eating is trying to cover/avoid thos other issues. So from that, right there - you should speak to a councelor to help w/ that. As far as what you can do to get back on track & snap out of your snacking - try the 5 day pouch test. http://www.5daypouchtest.com/ You'll see a lot of mention of that on this board. Personally, Im in the evening of day 2 & im doing OK with it. Your stomach MIGHT HAVE streched out a bit - but its nothing that you cant get back in shape & under control. SO hang in there, do you soul seaching, talk to your Drs & believe in yourself. You are not alone. ;)
Oh ya - its "LIGHT". They unfortunately didnt have any of the SF/FF left. I can actually tolerate yogurt OK - ive not yet dumped on it. **thank goodness**. i more so wanted to confirm if yogurt is w/in the parameters of the 5dpt. Thanks for your support :) I need to check & see if i can have a strained cream soup for dinner.
I know lol i was so looking forward to those eggs tomorrow too. But then i figured SHOOT - If i can make it 2 days - why cant i do another 3?? But your right, that would have to be on a day by day basis. I do admit to being a bit ambitious, but dont want to sabotage my efforts (or anyone elses for that matter). So lets say we extend the liquid thing for just ONE (1) more day & start day 3 of the 5dpt on thursday??
OK, so ya - Im hungry & this sucks & im peeing all the time & the jello is getting on my nerves. But Im making this work. I WILL DO THIS!! Im too stubborn not to. In fact, Im actually considering EXTENDING days 1 & 2 through the rest of the week! Im really competative & im anxious to see the "results". i REALLY want to see if I can drop 20lbs in 2weeks like i did b4 (right after surg.). WHO'S WITH ME!??!?!!? Sure, Im dying right now - but lets extend Days 1 & 2 through FRIDAY!! What say you?!??! Join the WL revolution!!!
Agreed - i do have to drink more water. not including the teas - i think i had about 30oz of plain water :(. i have water - almost as much as i hate the vits. I also had a headache for most of the day yesterday & do think it was withdrawl symptom. this morning - Im trying to down coffee w/ protein & its simply way too thick to get through the drinking spout!! not only that, but its clumpy at the top of the coffee. Any suggestions??
