Can someone please pass the cheese and whine my way??? I have been having many pitty parties lately for myself - they have all been internal parties but I am sure my family can tell that I am not in the best mood.
I can completely relate to your situation. ALL of my pants are tight in my tummy and they use to be loose. My clothes feel like a confined straight-jacket. My hubby say, "oh, just go buy larger sized pants." Uh, NO THANK YOU! I do not want to be a larger size! All of my clothes fit great 3 months ago! I try many different outfits on daily! These are too tight, those are too low and rub my stinky stoma, others show the bag. I feel like Goldilocks...except, nothing is "just right."
I normally do not complain, but you caught me at the right time! I am having a bad day too. To top it off, I keep gaining weight! Not food weight, I am holding water! My face and fingers are puffy. At first, I thought I was dehydrated from the bag, so I drank more water. But, then I gained 3 pounds in one day in addition to the 5 I gained from the surgery. So, I thought, maybe I am drinking too much. I cut back on the water, and still gained. So, now I do not know what to think. What I do know is that if I bike 20 miles, I lose 3-4 pounds everyday. So, I bike everyday just to keep myself from gaining water! This is crazy!
Ok, there is my whine...followed by a rant. Thanks for letting me complain. Now, I that I have that out of my system, I feel much better.
