This post is going to be a little yuck - warning, warning!
Last night had to have been the WORST night in this journey so far. I ate too fast, didn't chew enough, and was stuck and sliming and PB'ing for about 2 hours...I never threw up as no bile taste in my mouth but OMG, i have never experienced something so uncomfortable and disgusting in my life. Thankfully, I was home all alone and worked it through without an audience but here is what i learned:
1 - Chew, chew, chew - and if you think you chewed enough go another few chews - read on a board last night that someone says the abc's while they chew...great idea!!!
2 - Don't eat mindlessly - many of you have gotten stuck when you aren't paying attention to what you are eating - exactly what happened last night!!! UGH!
3 - Water on top of stuck is not a good idea.
4 - Pineapple juice helped a little but also came back up.
5 - You can really tell when it has either all come up or it has passed through your band - I am so learning how to listen to my body.
So today - liquids and mushies to be kind to my band and the way I feel today which is not fabulous...
Learning, it is a learning process, i have to keep telling myself that. And last night's lesson, I could have skipped but honestly now I know...and it has stopped in my tracks - don't ever want to do that again...and especially since my job takes me into public eating situations...don't ever want to go through that while at a work function...
So to end on a positive - two good things came out of last nights experience:
1 - I learned more about what this journey is.
2 - I dropped some weight - not the right way to drop the weight and I am sure it will come right back but i did like the number this morning.
