Starting over

Friday, May 20, 2011

*sigh* I'm having to start over. I had my gallbladder removed a little over a year ago and it REALY messed up my digestion, causing horrible diarrhea and nashua. Before my gallbladder attack, my Dr had put me on the south beach diet and I lost well over 40 pounds. I was doing really well, but after the surgery and my digestion being so messed up well... I found I just couldn't stay on my diet, because the ONLY thing that would make my stomach feel better when I got sick was to eat bread and anybody who knows anything about the south beach diet knows bread is one of the BIGEST no nos out there. So it came down to a choice. Stick to my diet and be sick to my stomach all the time or eat the bread that made me feel less sick and gain my weight back. Since I've gained all my weight back, I bet you can guess what I chose. Now over a year latter though. I'm not getting sick to my stomach as often any more, so I'm going to give my diet another try. I don't think I will have a problem as long as the nashua stays away. So if you would cross your fingers, wish me luck, and say a few prayers for me.

    Thanks Guys

    South Beach does allow "good carbs" but white bread isn't considered good carbs. When I get sick like that, the only thing that helps is the bad stuff. Highly processed easy to digest stuff.

    So glad to see you on here! I did so well on here last year, and just this past month I've got myself back on track again. It's an awesome tool, and then your friends are here to support you on the way!

    Maybe South Beach isn't the best way because it doesn't allow carbs? Maybe you can follow other plans that allow healthy carbs to help with your stomach problems?

    You can do it! :)
