244.8 lbs!

Thursday, August 29, 2013

So I weighed myself today and I am now 244.8 pounds! I'm still having stomach issues and constipated still. It's been over a week now since I've been able to go to the restroom. My stomach hurts, slightly hard to the touch, and i'm not hungry. I have this odd full feeling and it's only getting worse.

I picked up a bottle of Fiber Choice Prebiotic Fiber Sugar-Free Assorted Fruit Chewable Tablets at Walgreen's. It's starting to help slightly but not fast enough. My next step is a laxative or a fiber powder I add to my water. I'm just glad I have a doctor appointment in a few weeks but if this doesn't get better before then I have no choice but to make an emergency appointment or go to a free clinic.

We are going out of town tomorrow! I'm really excited to get away from here so I can have a short break from the insanity. I really hate being here but right now it's our only choice since we can't afford our own place.... a simple studio is $1,500+ which is outrageous! I've been looking for cheap places to rent and they're all over priced and outside of our price range. I've been looking for work still and applying to jobs but nothing yet. I never thought it could be this hard to get a job but it is, I've been applying for jobs since 2008 when I lost my job.

    Congrats on the new weight! As for the constipation...try a laxative - ducolax or there's a women's laxative not sure of the name. You may need to up your fiber intake, oatmeal, flaxseed, fiber powders or pills. I know certain dairy products do it for me (TMI). If you go for the laxative or fiber powder/pills drink something hot afterwards and take a little walk, don't go to far from home. Hope this helps ...I also like stewed prunes (tee hee) If these dont' work you may need to go to the doctor/hospital can be something more involved

    What does your fiber intake amount say on your Nutrition Tracker? Are within the recommended range?

    Sorry to see you're still not feeling 'right'. Hopefully a little R&R will help. Enjoy your weekend!
