So That is What Eating Is For Others?

Ok that is a bit of an exaggeration but holy moly can I eat and have I been hungry. I have frankly steered clear of the iron pill for the last couple days (after the almost stuck thing). My other drugs go down OK.

Breakfast is still pills and venti Peppermint Mocha Frap. I eat more lunch and I am hungry for it now. Today it was a spinach salad, whole boiled egg, generous tablespoon of cottage sliced carrots and a slice of cucumber plus a little parm. cheese sprinkled on. I swapped my afternoon venti peppermint mocha frap for a tall skim one and now I am like a heat seeking missile for some dinner....

I am skeered of the weight gain. I lost 4 pounds on the day I couldn't eat. Since the unfill I gained a pound each day for two days in a row. I know this is normal but was still a tad freakish. Today the weight gain stabilized stopping at a lovely 162.6. I am hoping I can keep this white-nuckled grip on my weight for the long term.

Oh, I feel your pain on the too tight and unfill aftermath. I hope things are getting stabilized fast... xo

Well I would say maybe you need more solid protein to stave off hunger. I know it's scary after you've been super tight, but maybe try some chicken or fish for lunch to see if it helps. I love salad and veggies, but they don't stick with me for too long when I'm really hungry.

I agree with Linda, even though it's hard for me, becaue I desperately hate to be stuck and sick, but if I eat good solid protien, I'm satisfied for hours! Good luck, you did the right thing getting and unfill!
