Day 32: I'm a Frog!!!
Tuesday, December 28, 2010      5 comments

"A frog, hopping around the farm, minding his own business, fell right into a pail half-filled with cream. Swimming frantically, he found the sides too steep and too high. Determined not to give up, he continued to struggle. He kicked and squirm... Read more

Friday, December 24, 2010      3 comments

Today has been a busy day. Not feeling so much like the holidays because we are having no family get togethers due to... well, life. I didn't even put a tree this year - first time I can remember EVER not doing that. But I don't feel sad - wh... Read more

Thursday, December 23, 2010      4 comments

They are calling for the possibility of a really big storm! I'm excited - but already planning ahead. Being snowed in means LOTS of down time - that I traditionally filled with eating and watching TV and playing computer games. WASTED TIME. ... Read more

Sunday, December 19, 2010      1 comments

Today was absolutely miserable. Woke up at 6:00 am my stomach was in agony. Spent the next 7 hours throwing up that awful fish (yes, it apparently had sat in my tummy and was never digested - gross). Kat came over and brought me some pudding ... Read more
Day 22: No Concerns About Overeating Today!
Saturday, December 18, 2010      2 comments

The tilapia I tried to eat last night apparently doesn't digest well in my RNY stomach. Even ten years after GBS, I occasionally will eat something that gets "stuck" for lack of a better word. I have been unable to eat or drink ANYTHING since ... Read more

Tuesday, December 14, 2010      0 comments

Yesterday was a good day, but very hard. I had some tummy issues (related to the bypass) so I couldn't eat. No, that's not a good thing, because if I don't eat, my body does that whole "OMG We're starving - conserve!" thing and I actually gain... Read more
