Its been frustrating-------after my surgery(had a bout a foot of my colon removed...) I was able to return to eating pretty normal-- but for the past 3-4 weeks I have suddenly started having difficulty digesting some of my food. As it turns out it seems to be the sugars---which is not terrible, but I seem to have some problems with anything that breaks down into any sugar-------creating the most unbearable gas I have ever experienced---and it doesnt smell pleasant either ( ok...TMI). I am finding I can have absoolutely nothing with sugar, have to be careful about natural sugars in fruit as well--I can eat them but have to spead it out over the day, breads can be a problem, beans,pasta & vegetables too........its crazy! So the good out of this --is it naturally makes me want to avoid the bad stuff --but I have to be careful about some of the healthy stuff too. I am learning.... but it has taken some reinforcement. I have always allowed myself a little treat now & then--but its not so good anymore. The instant gratification is soon overshadowed by the terrible belly ache!
I have continued my journey on the stairs--the last 2 days I have not enterred the elevator at all! that feels good. I am in the journey to succeed--and I am sticking to it no matter what!
