Overally I'm doing okay with my diet. It need refining, but overally I'm doing okay with it and am working on what I need to work on to improve it, so that hasn't been a major problem. Had to put Miralax back into my daily routine to solve some problems I had per my doc's instructions, but that isn't a big deal either. My new problem is that I can't stand anything I drink. I drink a cup of coffee to wake up, it doesn't really taste good. I drink Crystal Lite in various flavors and it doesn't taste good. I drink water and it doesn't taste good. I drink a protein drink and it doesn't taste good. I drink OJ (for my Miralax) and it doesn't really taste good (but I force is so I can get the Miralax in), I drink SF Kool-Aid and it doesn't taste good. I'm trying all kinds of different fluids and nothing seems to taste palatable (sp?). I can't stand anything I drink, I'm rarely thirsty, but I know how important getting the fluid in is. My bowels are suffering severely, I'm getting rectal tears cuz they are passing so hard now and that's why the doc put me back on the Miralax for a couple of weeks. I'm trying everything I can think of short of living off Jello to get the fluid in and I take a sip or two and I'm done cuz I can't stand the flavor of anything. I get maybe one or two cups of extra fluid in a day, and I know if I want my bowel problems to be remedied, or at least helped, and if I want to kick up my weight loss (it's slowed up a bit, not stopped, but slowed) I need that fluid. I know how important that fluid is to my body and why they push you to drink it, but dang, I can't stand any of it. Nothing tastes good and pushing it down isn't working at all. I know I can't be the only one who's fighting this, or who has fought it. Someone out there has had to have dealt with this and fought it and made it to the other side. I want to lose more then ten pounds a month. I'm only five months out and only losing ten pounds a month. I was losing around sixteen and felt comfortable there. I know it slows at some point, but I think I can do better if I can just get that fluid in. Any advice, experience, anything, would be so appreciated in this one. I don't know what to do now. I'm so frustrated and have tried for the last week to get myself to force fluids and just can't do it! Thanks guys!
