Oh yes.....we always celebrate the "normal BM" around here for sure! (I had alternating bowels aka "IBS") my entire life, so I truly "get this"!

 

There is so much joy in not having one's life ruled by the amount of time spent in the loo. 

 

Keep up the good work!

My boyfriend thought I was crazy for posting this until I let him read the responses, he laughed.  I feel like I just graduated Poop School at the age of 37.  I hate to see what a diploma from there would look like lol.

I know how you feel.  I have been a stranger to constipation all my life.  Just recently I flew home from a family visit, and got a bit dehydrated.  I was fairly delighted when I suffered my first real episode of constipation.  I cured it with a celebratory bowl of icecream.  As I am lactose intolerant, it was not pretty, but it was effective.

No, I for one get that being very new to all of this myself.  I for one cheered at what seemed to be a normal trip to the bathroom.

I don't think this is funny.

I was rather peeved when I first saw this comment and had a few choice words.

But I edited and will simply clarify that I generally don't get into discussions with other people commenting in a thread, hijacking the conversation or taking it in a different direction. Rather, I respond to the original poster's comment. It is their thread.

I still think that beth's post was quite humorous, very human, and I love when people share their embarrassments as well as their pride, and in this case, a little of both.

Beth01, kudos to you for having a sense of humor despite all that you are going through.

kareng, 

I get that you like to criticize other people's posts. But did it cross your mind that I was responding to the original post and not commenting on the post before mine? 

Some of us like to stick to the topic that the original poster started rather than get into arguments with other people commenting.

I give you the benefit of the doubt and presume that you have the best of intentions, but a lot of the time, it feels as if you are bullying other people, as you just did to me.

 

This is the joy of the internet and specifically, message boards.  Naturechick, you replied to the OP.  It was read by someone else as a reply to the comment above your reply, since you hadn't quoted anyone.  It does look like currantbun could use a little help in this department and not be laughed at, and the wonderful setup of the internet message board thing is going to lead to misunderstandings like this.  I don't think Karen's comment is bullying... you can really read through the thread two ways, and in one she is the one who is not nice, and in the other Naturechick is the one who is not nice.  If you read through it as given, it does seem like your comment wasn't the nice one, so it is good to get clarification that you were laughing at the overall jist of the thread.  Because poop=funny.  I don't care how old you are.

I used to have this daily or even sometimes and even orange color. I did have it after going gluten-free too, but less often now, and it seems to be getting better daily. I would talk to my doctor about it, your poos should be getting better not worse.

 I know what you mean.  After my scopes, it took 6 days to have a BM.  After fits and starts with getting "regular" - avoiding the gluten has made me regular.  If I don't go daily, with a solid BM, at least I'm going every other day.  I still have occasional D, but not nearly like it used to be.

 

I have also been able to maintain my weight between 163 and 167, depending on the day, the time of day, etc. when weighed, but I'm not following a weight loss plan, and I have begun to eat some gluten-free sweets (let me say, Tate's gluten-free choc. chip cookies are the bomb).  I am on vacation this week, and after its over, I plan to eat "better" again.  2 years ago, I weighed 200 lbs.

 

After about 3 months of avoiding sweets, except the occasional ice cream (and I really don't like ice cream much) I missed the crunch of a baked good, especially muffins.  I bought Bob's gluten-free corn bread mix, and that was doing it for me.  My husband brought home Udi's bagels, and a brand of gluten-free bread called All But Gluten, and I have to say, I do enjoy eating a hard boiled egg on toast again!

 

Anyhow, avoiding the gluten has "normalized" my digestion and my BMs, so I know where you are coming from.

LOL, Not too much TMI at all !!! That's why we are all here!!!! I too, have the exact same problem. Its good to know that according to you all, I'm 'normal'.  I was only diagnosed 2 weeks ago so I look forward to being "consistent" !!! (and healthy!!) I am severely anemic (which is how we found out that I had Celiac Disease) and need to take iron supplements but it gives me horrible liquid diarrhea!!!(TMI???)  I was taking ferrous gluconate as its only 35mg, and supposedly easier on the digestive system, but now the doctor has me taking ferrous sulfate, which is 60mg......time will tell. Anyone else anemic?? What are you supplementing with?? Let's get our poop in a group!!! heehee from Canada.

    • You'll get to the point where you can eat other things, you just have to give it time. Can you do eggs? Hard boiled eggs. They make fast snacks and are highly portable. If you make nut butters, you can just eat it by the spoonful.  I don't like "normal" coconut macaroons, too wet for me, ick! I found this recipe though which drives me insane --- sooooooo good I about swallow my tongue. http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/alton-brown/toasty-coconut-macaroons-recipe-1912139 Don't know if you like them or not but re-fried beans. I NEED my carbs!!!!! If I don't get carbs, I will get weak & shaking 30 minutes after eating. I can't eat every 30 minutes!!! So I eat a lot of re-fried beans. I make a big vat & then portion into containers & freeze. If you have or get a stick blender, it will make super fast work of mashing those beans up. Only takes 2 minutes or less. I use olive oil in mine & lots of it -- need that fat. 
    • Coconut, almond butter, and cocoa nib fat bombs...I use plant fats to do it. You can make some great snacks out of fresh almond butter, shredded or coconut flour, and cocoa nibs. Sweeten with stevia for little dough like balls of goodness. Oh you miss potato chips, two options here I like to make my own protein chips with pea protein, or I can have 2-4 protes chips (vegan pea protein  chips made by a company) but they have to be eaten in moderation. Coconut chips....yeah I get Lets' Do Organic ones I can snack on a hand full of them or throw a handful of cocoa nibs in my mouth for snacks. If you like meat, try making jerky. get a dehydrator season your own and just do it.....lucky you can eat meat. I miss making roast in a crock pot....I used to make some of the best shredded meats. My old smoker.....I could make some of the best ribs and roast EVER. The jerky can be made and taken for snacks on the road or while out, crack open a can of spinach (canned unsalted delmonte does not bother me) or pack some stewed greens and have some jerky tear it up stir it in canned keto on the go. Other lovely thing are tuna and salmon if the canned bother you I often find them too salty to enjoy I have taken some and smoked it or dipped it in liquid smoke then cooked in a baking dish then loaded in to the dehydrator. I find doing this I can have that little bit of fish when I want without worry of spoilage (sucking on it and chewing it for a long time make it really satisfying for me) ....SOO doing this next week to try the fish again. Speaking of fish...since I perfected keto bread in my bakery this month......I think I might try making a tuna sandwich with avacado mayo....not had a tuna sandwich in over 5 years.....
    • I am a newly diagnosed celiac and am traveling abroad for the first time since starting the diet. I will be going to Greece in the spring. I was wondering if anyone had any tips for eating gluten free abroad or at airports? Thanks! 
    • Yeah I've wondered a bit if I'm not getting all the other B vitamins from food alone and if they'd do me well. Magnesium content in the keto vitals isn't a lot. I try to get some more through food but I doubt it's optimal. I might have to look into that stuff. Interesting about the meats. Unfortunately I need the fat, especially if I'm gonna continue trying this keto thing for awhile, give it a chance to work. I did know about the difference in omega content, but since starting this diet I've been supplementing with fish oil to offset the omega 6's. Hope you'll be able to eat meat again soon, even if in small amounts. So much this. Every day I want to get up and do anything, and can't and it sucks. I want to climb the walls, get away from myself... Ugh, this takes too long, and I'm too impatient. Yeah, looks like I have to cook everything. I figured I'd at least be able to eat raw baby spinach. I need SOMETHING I can just grab and eat, but it gives me the same slightly itchy mouth that fruit gives me. I've been allergic to fruit forever... Don't have this problem with my steamed broccoli and cauliflower. I already cook everything else I eat. (and it's all organic, real food) So annoying to have to spend half my day cooking, not that I have anything else I can do. But what do I do when (or if) I get healthy again and am like, out somewhere? Damn I miss potato chips. I'll tweak a few things here and there and keep trying.
    • I see banana pudding in your future! ENJOY! I'm glad you came back to report what happened with the cookies.
