Hi, Windy, and welcome to the community!
My first day on MF, I thought I was going to start gnawing on the doorframe!!
I ate 5 pickles -- almost at once, drank more than a few cups of boullion, had at least 2 whole cups of SF jello, and drank and peed and drank and peed and peed and
drank and peed. (forgive me if that's crass, but sometimes the longer, more polite versions have too many syllables)
My second day, I still couldn't go an hour without a bathroom visit (not good when you're a teacher!! but that was an inservice day, luckily). In addition to the program, I consumed the mother of all pickles plus a few of her offspring
, 3 c. of boullion, more SF jello in addition to 100oz of water and an extra meal replacement. AND I took a 2 hour nap.
Day 3 was easier, but I was sicksicksick with a migraine.
Once I could actually keep things down, I got in all my supplements, the LnG and lots of water. I did ABSOLUTELY nothing -- not even a shower -- that day.
the sun came out, the birds sang, and I began enjoying this journey. And I weighed in for the first time on the Roll Call. I was (and am and will be to come) under 300 lbs for the final time!
It's almost hard to remember how difficult that first day was, but it was distractingly so now that I can recall. Even though I had wayyyy too many of them, those pickles, cups of broth and cups of jello got me through. (It was still many fewer calories than I was consuming previously.)
Arklahoma (one of the fabulously knowledgeable nurses in our community) is of course absolutely right, though; Get Thee to a Doctor. Get his/her blessings on this. There may be factors other than the fact your body is digging its heels in and yelling "Heck no, we won't go!!" Once properly annointed by said physician, stock up on the celery, pickles, boullion and SF jello and hang on! There IS another side to this hill and it's mostly all down!
Here's to our mutual success!
