Day 9 - Mindgames!

My Brain craved a toasted sandwich today. I could actually taste the grilled tasty cheese and fresh tomato slide down my throat.

So I suppressed the crave with an Optifast shake, and whilst the shake tasted like crap, at least my stomach was satiated and it flowed, shutting my naughty brain's diabolical thoughts down. I am progressing well with the Mushies stage,  it seems all boring here, movements all normal, and still trying to drink more fluids during the day.
I burp more than normal, and gas passes REGULARLY, LOL, much to my daughters annoyance.

I am ready to transition again, but there is no rush, I am just so happy to be Banded.


  1. I have to say that the mind cravings are the worst...but you just have to keep reminding yourself that you are more than that sandwich. I'm really glad you seeing to be surviving the gas pains :)

  2. Mmmmm grilled cheese and tomato - one of my favorites. Sounds like things are going well.

  3. Sounds like you're right on track...thankfully it gets a little better every day. I'm only 3 weeks out...welcome to the club.
