I use benefiber everyday. Odorless, tasteless, and completely dissolves in clear liquids. You also can sprinkle on food in soup. It works hot or cold. I put it in my coffee every morning. I move my bowels every day now no problem. I hope this helps someone...hugs, Michele.

I have lost 10 lbs since surgery but would like to loose 10 more. My appetite is about half of what it used to be. My DH actually worries about me not eating enough and getting too thin. Imagine that!! My tummy still swells though by the end of the day. I wonder if that will ever get better???

I weighed 145 before my surgery & the same now. Didn't lose a pound. Frustrating because everybody wants to lose 10 pounds I just bought some exercise tapes so wish me luck. I still have swelly belly too & that's frustrating. After my surgery I measured my waist & was unhappy with the size. Yesterday I measured it again & it was 3 inches smaller! At least thats progress.

I am still wearing stretchy waistbands. My regular jeans fit but cause discomfort later in the day so staying with the elastic waists for a bit longer.
We have been able to start walking in the hills again so that melts winter weight really well! Plus hubby is diabetic and was told to drop 30 and he could likely ditch his meds! Makes it easier if he is trying too.

Re: Recovery Progress Reports for Hysterectomy dates Feb 13-Feb 19,2012

Who here has gotten the green light to begin real workouts (post 2/13 surgery)??? I'm curious as to when I'll likely be able to begin!!

(I think I lost my weight b/c of the other things going on--infections, diverticulitis, etc..........., but, honestly, I felt like I was dying, so it wasn't a fun way to lose it. Still, fitting into my tiny clothes again after putting them aside for 3 years, feels GREAT. I wanna continue on this path!) It'll come-----------SLOWLY, for all of us!
