waa waa waa, quit feeling sorry for yourself.

Well, I can't help it. I'm having a hard time adjusting to not having a gall bladder, and it is affecting my weight. That and some bad habits I've discovered over the past couple of weeks.

So, I'm limited to what I can eat, due to my lap band. And then, I am quite miserable with gas and constipation since I had my gall bladder removed. I did some research on how to eat sans gall bladder this weekend, and this is what I found. One site says to eat high protein, low fiber. The other one says high fiber, low fat. Well. I do know it has to be low fat, but something else is bothering my system. I'm on liquids today since I threw up my dinner last night. Need to let my stomach heal. I'm sure you all wanted to hear about this grossness, but it's part of my weightloss challenge.

Here are my resolutions: I am going to try Activia yogurt for two weeks. I have cereal and yogurt for breakfast every day (high fiber) so that will fit in fine.
I am going to Weight Watchers to buy their new food companion and point scale. I'm a lifetime member, and have reached my goal several times. Now I don't have money or time to go to weekly meetings, but I found out you can buy the materials without going to meetings. I was searching for the materials on Amazon, and found out the people listing them were charging outrageous prices for them. Several WWleaders wrote in and blasted them for overcharging. The companion book is $9.00.

I will talk about my bad habits in another post.


  1. Sorry you are having such troubles....
    So how much can you get those books for? Mine are old.

  2. I hope you feel better fun to have a stomach "erupt" on you.
