No this isn’t easy. I’m 12 years post op RNY gastric bypass and I still have sour stomach days. Let’s call this one almost a week. Finally today I forced myself to do liquids for the day. Since its been years, I know taking a break from solids always works for me. But I’ll tell you one thing it is not easy.
It happens to us all. We take that “one more bite.” The one we thought about before we put it in our mouths. We actually considered not having it. But maverickly consumed usually with haste. Maybe my stomach won’t notice because my mind really wants that last taste. Do you really need that last bite? Nutritionally? Of course not.
The last few days I have been having tummy troubles. Not sure what is triggering it. I’m not eating anything different. But at night after dinner I tend to have the “stuck” feeling. Like my tummy just doesn’t want to digest the meal. It’s not like I feel as if I need to “give back” my meal just like it’s sitting there. In the past I would have waited it out. Oh you all know how that is. It makes for a long night of being uncomfortable. You feel distracted and basically can’t enjoy anything because all you can think about is your stomach.
Had a crazy day today. Work. Cleaning. Errands. And then off to Connecticut for a weekend visit with college roommates. We get together each summer with kids. Had a protein shake this morning. A great start to the day. Always holds me. An ice tea with milk. And that was pretty much it until we got to CT and had dinner. Needless to say my tiny tank was not happy with me. Although I ate salmon I ended up with a sour stomach.
