It wasn't the sliming that was the problem, it was the pain that I felt as my body tried to figure out what to do with the stuck food. Because of my fundoplication, I had already found out (through the stomach flu) that I couldn't vomit.... or PB as it may. Actually, I did have one small PB, but it was all slime, and didn't help any!
So now that I am at 8.5cc, I'm finding that I have sliming incidents anywhere from 5-7x/week.
Does this mean I'm too restricted? How can it be, when I'm still hungry... and OFTEN! I still have issues with wanting to eat naughty foods. However..... I made a cake this week for my kids, and when I had a slice.... it got stuck. I slimed for about 1/2 hour. It sucked. I was so pissed at the cake, I wouldn't even look at it again!
I am slowly realizing that if I eat too quickly, or don't completely liquify my food.... it gets stuck. Gosh.... I never thought I'd have to learn how to CHEW again!
I also seem to have hit a wall with weightloss. I have bounced between 275-280 for about a month. What is up with that? I haven't started exercising yet...... think that has something to do with it? (that's rhetorical.... I know that it's TOTALLY why I haven't lost any more poundage!)
Alright... I seem to be getting crabbier as I write....... I'll go and have that Muffin/Hot Cocoa party for the class that won the Box Tops contest this month (I'm a Box Tops coordinator for my school...... #1 in Michigan last year..... #48 in the nation!! Made $6640.00 last year for my school!!)
