Quick question... What new Medifast recipes from the Christmas cooking/baking magazines are you wanting to try this ye Hoping for any answer or 2. Another question... Well, I have hit a little wall. A lot of normal issues really, but Irritable Bowel Syndrome broke the camel's back!.

Eating too much and ending up with hiccups, diarrhea, not feeling like exercising, diarrhea, mood swings, diarrhe...well you get the idea..

The end of three months out is new territory, and I am hitting some body change issues, as I mentioned before. In order to control GERD, I really had to take the water and eating thing seriously, so that's a lot of changes all at one time..

Finally, got rid of $1,000s of 4X-6X clothes, sweaters, leather stuff, etc. That was a very difficult thing to deal with, even though I am thrilled with the loss, of course..

Anybody who thinks this is "easy" is full of shit!..

I think the one thing that I didn't get, presurgery, was the sense of how many things would happen and how quickly it all plays out. You really have to be ready to deal with several issues at once. it can be overwhelming.....

The clothes thing for me has been challenging but like you I finally did it. It was incredibly hard for me b/c my clothes were a comfort zone for me- -I knew I'd fit in them so I wouldn't be disappointed. I was also discouraged of going to a store to find out I wouldnt fit in a certain size..

What helped me get through that part of my life was reflecting on where I wanted to be in the future. I had always kept my "fat" clothes for the incase I go back which gave me an excuse and a reason to fail. I moved forward with this task b/c there is no turning back. This journey is about making changes. How can one move on when they are holding to the past?.

As for the.

Ever the pessimist, I got rid of some clothes after the first 3 months, but just yesterday, I packed up a bunch and put them in the basement. I will probably give them away in the spring, since they are mostly summer things anyway. Things are going really great for me, but still, it is scary to get rid of everything! Ricky, you really took off a lot quickly. Maybe that is why you are having issues. I have been losing very slowly (62 lbs in 5 months) but on the other hand, I have had very few issues, and very few plateaus. I think that I finally have a grasp on what I need to do, and have finally gotten a grip on my head hunger.

Try to be patient, and like you said in another post, one day at a time! There was quite a time that I just wasn't sure this was worth it, or that it would work, but now at 5 months, I can finally see daylight at the end of the tunnel. I.


You get to feeling better soon. Hang in there!..

I don't think it's easy and I haven't even had.


Yet. All the mental olympics you have to go through just to get to the.


Just to find out that that was only the tryouts now you are in for the gold medal events. I.


Your issues resolve soon and I know what you mean about the clothes I just sat today and looked at all the clothes I have in my closet and realized I would be unable to wear most of them very soon and some of them I haven't even had a chance to wear yet because they were winter clothes I got on sale last spring. Argggh! And I just bought a new coat for the first time in years last winter and it was big to begin with. Geez!..

I start the liquid protein 14 day pre-surgery Medifast diet this Friday. It was the longest journey to get the approval for.


, and suddenly, things are happening. After all the preparation, I don't know if I really am ready. It's a bit scary because, like you, I won't know what issues I have to deal with until they hit me in the face. You're often the cheerleader of our little group, ready with motivating suggestions and thought-provoking questions. Thanks for sharing tonight the struggles that you are having. I need to hear those things too..


Things settle down for you soon. Yeah, the handsome, slimming guy in the mirror is you. The Real Ricky is coming out of hiding. Cut him some slack if he's a bit timid at first!..
