Default Feeling really grim - does this happen?

Day #31, no breaks.

I feel really weak and tired today. Had to sit down unexpectedly at work this morning. Not dizzy, just weak.

I'm eating and drinking right.

As soon as I eat (TMI alert) I have to rush to the bathroom, and it's not pretty. Indeed, I'm glad I live alone.

I feel all peculiar and distant and like I just want to go to sleep until tomorrow but I can't, got a massive service at church now.

If this happens sometimes, fine.
If anyone can tell by what I've said has got any hints about what I might be doing wrong, please let me know.

Ta.

We aren't doctors and I think you'd be better off checking with yours than on the internet. If you have to rush to the bathroom after eating, you are not getting nourishment from your food.

I hope you get better soon!

Sounds like it could be a stomach bug, or some such thing, depending on how long its been going on-- but Quilter is right, sounds like a doctor visit is in order.

I take everyone's point, and I've made a dox appt for next Monday.

In the mean time, I'm wondering if I've been having just too much fat for someone without a gall bladder. I'm going to try knocking off the cream until Monday, and see if that makes a difference. I'm not going to be eating Low Fat, just a Bit Lower.

Well, I worked out the problem - I was drinking far too much. I've always drunk a lot of water but I upped it for this WOE and because of hot weather. I was drinking so much that I think I was literally washing the food straight through me. I'm still getting about 150 floz a day, between water and black tea/coffee, so not dehydrating.

I don't know if it's a down side of drinking a bit less or if it's something else but I've got horrid fluid retention in my ankles, it doesn't go down properly overnight, which makes me a bit nervous. Oh well, see what the doctor says.

My husband doesn't have a gallbladder either. He's got horrible issues w/the bathroom! Lots of thoughts coming your way!

And I'm going to recommend this thread.
Help with very low carb...

Oh yes, this happens fairly frequently and it's not too hard to overcome.
