I've sooo let myself go over the past two months. I was 194ish in January, got down to 184 in February, and now am back to 194ish. I feel like crap, my pants hardly fit again. My main prob is I got laid off and have been spending a lot of time at the parent's place helping them do renos. They eat a lot and it causes me to too. Anyway starting tomorrow the diet is on, and I'm going to go back to my place next week so that should help tremendously.

Who else here wants to lose some weight, surely I can't be the only one. I'm going to be doing the Paleo diet again, protein heavy as before.

I am on my way down....... I lost 29 pounds during this surgery, but want to go lower. I am dying to go back to the gym but with so many leakages I have been scared too. I still have this coloplast on and it isnt itching or anything like the others did. I like the plastic backing. I only have this one though. They sent me samples but they are a hard wafer and the nurses seem to think I need the flexible ones....so I dont think I will use them right now. So I will use hollister until I can order more of the coloplast ones.

I'd like to lose a few pounds, too. Ever since I had surgery, I've been able to eat a variety of foods and retain nutrients, so I've been happily enjoying every calorie! blush about a month ago, I started cutting out sugar and white carbs and have already lost 10 pounds. I would like to lose 10 more, so I am with you in this! Maybe I should start smoking, so I don't eat so much.... hehehe... just kidding! smilewinkgrin By the way, are you still a non-smoker?

I'm sorry you lost your job. Are you job hunting where you used to live, where your friends are? I remember you saying that you moved away because of that job and that you missed them. Just a thought.

This is the place I need to check in more often. Have gone into some kind of remission from 5 years of crohn's ups and downs. Gained 20 pounds and that is alot on a 105 lb. body. So keep me posted on this thread. I have a hard time because exercising causes tired and sick episodes. I eat when bored, tired, upset, ect. I just eat things that are unhealthy too much. Good to know the why now I need the how.

I'm still smoke free, and vette guy, come to canada and expect to pay closer to $12/pack, where it's been for quite some time :-O I love your American cigs tho I have to admit, yum!

Well I'm off to an "ok" start on the diet front. My calories are down the last two days, down to the point where I'm burning what I need to live, although I don't have a calorie deficit yet, so I won't lose any weight. But it's a start!

I got a new job, all official now. I'll be working out of Timmins Ontario as of May 4th. Look that up on a map if you don't know where it is, it's "up there." So the spirits are up, which I would expect will help both in the eating and drinking dept lol. I was there two weeks ago checking the town out, and I absolutely love it. Everyone is so friendly, it's actually surreal. Definitely IMHO somewhere "settle down."

Well I'm headed out for a walk...in the snow lol

Nah, I don't think she's single. Maybe she will be once she finds out I'm in town though, ahahaha.

All I can say about the past week is "fail." Been eating and partying far too much. I haven't gained any weight so I guess that's good, but haven't lost any, either. Can;t wait to move to the new place and get a new start..

Matt,

I know you've heard it before but it's a lifestyle change.  Maybe moving to a new location will get you out of the rut you think you are in and you can start off with new habits....  have you done any research on what the new location has to offer you in the way of walking trails, biking trails, etc.?

I'm horrible at "exercising" but I am really active since we just finished buildng a home.

Hi,
I'm a new Ostamate as well and just off the prednisone (which you all know makes you eat everything in sight) I need to lose weight as well, but having a hard time finding foods as it appears salads and vegetable soups are a "out of the question" on a low residue diet.
any recipies or suggestions would be great!
thanks!

Hey Booboogirl,

Welcome to HW.com!!!  How long have you had your ostomy?  Ileostomy or colostomy?  (Sorry for the questions...)

After a period of healing and recuperating, you will be able to introduce those taboo foods slowly to your diet.  So, don't give up on them, just take a vacation from them.  There are certain things that you may not be able to eat, and there are certainly some which you need to be careful trying at first to be sure that they won't cause a problem.  If I feel something may bother me, then I do a couple of things:  eat other food with it and don't eat it on an empty stomach, chew it very well as you should all of your food and esp. fiber/roughage, and drinks lots of fluids.

Best of luck to you and keep checking out HW.com.   See ya later,
Peggy
