There are things I take for granted: technology, vehicles, laundry soap, stores within close proximity to my house…

…being able to poop.

Seriously, I would just kill (hypothetically speaking, of course) for a stick of dynamite if I thought for one second that would help.

Apparently, this would be a side effect of too much protein and not enough fats. At least that is what the web site I frequent tells me. I am hitting my protein goals and thought fats per day too.  Obviously, not the case. But (oh look, a pun!) it would appear many who have had RNY surgery do struggle with this problem, and there were oodles of suggestions. From sunflower seeds – I loved sunflower seeds – to raisins, prunes, diluted prune juice (I would think diluting prune juice would defeat the purpose, but it’s to lower the sugar content), Activa, Benefiber (which sucks, in case you were wondering), Colace, Miralax. Actually, the last two were severely popular.

Needless to say, I hit the drug store on the way home from work.

So, there you have it. A little peek into my personal life dilemma.

Other changes you might be interested in: I can no longer wear the uber big & tall shirts I purchased at KMart.com last winter. My over-sized lounge lizard sweat pants fall off (I can’t even wear them to bed because it’s like I got wrapped up in the sheets). The pants I had been wearing all over the place are too big (Christine pointed this out when we went to dinner – three shrimp fiesta – for my birthday). I found another pair of pants I haven’t worn in well over a year, and you can only imagine my excitement when I put them on and they fit! I have also pulled out some t-shirts which have been buried in the dresser for almost two years. It was weird. I told someone today, it was like “all of a sudden” BANG! Clothes are bigger.

If that concept would work with my bank account…

I was hoping to hold out until the end of August before I purchased any clothing out of the need to keep pants on my butt. However, I fear I may have to invest in a new bra soon. The girls are having a hard time keeping up.  😛

  1. Yay! Keep up the good work cuz!
