Congrats!!

This method of going NPO and only drinking elemental drinks has saved me for many, many years. That is why I can appreciate and understand just how difficult that was for you. You must be a really strong and well disciplined person. So again CONGRATS, you did it!!

Btw, the first time or two you try this is the worst. It will get easier to get through next time and so fowrth

I'm not doing too great today. It's my third day back on food and I am taking it r e a l l y slowly but my tummy is really complaining

Not been able to be far from the toilet for very long....

The pain isn't great either...

Hopefully it will calm down.

I would be really pissed off, if, after all that time, I still couldn't enjoy food!

Just want you to know I'm proud of you and it's very hard to reach goals and not get what you expected out of them. But don't give up. Things will start getting better, just don't rush it. I know that's easier said than done.

So, More and to make it all feel better.

Hi everyone, thanks for your continued support

I am still the same I went out with a couple of my friends last night. It was booked ages ago and was meant to be a celebration of me eating again but I sat there with nothing while they had theirs. I didn't mind as I chose not to as I have not been feeling good but it did put a bit of a downer on the night for them.... it was good to get out with the girls though.

Dallies - I am still having some modulen. Obviously much less than I was on but just enough to keep me ticking over.

urgh and now we all have bad head colds to add to the fun. My daughter (who is 2years old) is trying to soldier on bless her... we are all full of snot and aches and the weather is miserable today.... god I am a moany old bag today!!:grumpy:

I can relate to the colds. The kids went back to school 2 weeks ago and promptly infected the whole family. Colds during record heat waves are not a good thing!!! Nothing compared to what you're going through though. Hope it gets better soon!!
