Went to hospital as stomach pains became severe. See my post in thread 33. They were thorough and came up with a diagnosis. I will be ok with further treatment. It took 8 hours but I canít complain. Itís a great hospital.

Wander - I'm so sorry you've been going through so much pain. It is good to hear you have an answer for the cause now. I hope you feel much better soon!

I don't have gastroparesis so i'm free to diet again. I did my physical therapy and studied myself in the wall of mirrors after while i drank my water. It struck me that i am not grotesquely fat, i am just overweight. It's not gross or disgusting. It's not a catastrophe or a crisis. It's nothing to hate myself for. It's nothing to get excited about. It's just the result of careless eating and inertia. I just have to focus and diet and exercise and all will be well!


I'm not gonna count calories or get crazed with hunger this time. If i'm hungry, i'll eat but just make better choices. I have a fridge full of good options. What a feeling!

Whatever2013 - that seems like a very healthy outlook on your body. It is so easy to become too concerned with our appearances and accepting ourselves as we are is so important. Good reminder.

I stepped on the scale today and I'm down 3 lbs. I think getting off Risperdal has helped and I shed some of the water weight I was carrying. My clothes feel better and that's all I really wanted. I'm going to keep working to get back to my normal weight, but I'm happy with the way things are for now.

Got my exercise in by cutting the grass. The only exercise I get regularly. I really need to start walking, but my neighborhood is not walker friendly...no sidewalks. I'm also cooking dinner for once, bbq chicken and potatoes.

I stepped on the scale to get a starting weight. Then an hour later i did again and i had lost a pound. So i decided not to weigh myself anymore. It's too unreliable and will wreak havoc on my mood. I'll just gauge how i'm doing by how i feel and how my clothes fit.


I ate healthy, with six servings of veggies and three of fruit. I listened well to my hunger and even allowed myself a small single-serving-size bag of chips when i got the munchies. I'm a real junk-food-junkie so i have to manage it rather than banish it.


I feel good and like this pattern is sustainable and i don't have to wake up in dread. Hugs to all the anxious girls on Earth!

Just a short walk today; I got really tired really fast and knew the long way was out.

I don't know what is wrong with me and exhaustion lately. All I wan to do is sleep. If I fall asleep too early I wake up very early (10:00 tonight and now I have a 1:29 AM keeper I don't understand) and fight to get back to sleep and stay that way. I woke up sure it was 6 AM so 1:29 was a rude awakening. I suppose the exhaustion could be depression but I don't have other symptoms. I guess it's part of grief? Maybe.

I just wish I had enough motivation to get out there and do the hills that really exercise me, even when I walk the dogs on their hard walk. I know I can, I'm just so tired it's hard to even consider.

Iíve still been staying under my calories but not walking as much. Weather has been kind of ******. I put batteries in my scale yesterday and it said I gained four pounds, but that was in my clothes and after Iíd been eating and drinking all day. But I donít think that could have added four pounds so Iím thinking I didnít lose anything or even gained weight. Iím pissed. Iím going to try to weigh myself tomorrow morning before I eat to see what it is. If I did gain weight, even a pound, Iím just going to give up getting on the scale at all for a couple of weeks. It just brings me down.

i started PT today. It wasnít easy. I guess itís not supposed to be though. Not looking forward to going back, but itíll strengthen my legs. If I get one of those summer camp jobs Iíll need all the strength I can get.

I didn't eat well today at all. We had a garage sale and all my meals were quick and junky. I didn't exercise today either and I feel kind of blah. Tomorrow is a new day...

The best time to weigh yourself is first thing in the morning. Hopefully you see the results you want tomorrow morning!
