Mindlessly eating has been my downfall today. It's not that I ate something bad for me or that I ate too much. I had a mini whole wheat pita pocket with a few slices of deli meat in it. I ate 1/3 of it. But I ate it while reading which was where it all went wrong. I didn't chew like I needed to, I didn't take tiny bites like I normally do. I took larger than normal bites, I chewed it a few times and gulped it down completely mindlessly.

Then it sat there right at the middle of my ribcage like a searing hot poker. I massaged it there because sometimes that works. I've learned in the past that drinking anything definitely does NOT help so I didn't go there. Barely 2 minutes goes by.

I hardly got "can you watch my stuff" out of my mouth before I was running. Its amazing how far the bathroom is when its an emergency. I emptied my poor lil sleevie into the porcelain god and stood there spitting like crazy. Those damn slimies that accompany this episode of stupidity to remind me that I did it to myself....

Thank everything that is worth anything... no one came into the bathroom and witnessed me voiding my stomach contents. I would have been the talk of the office for months that I *must* be pregnant!

I noticed something interesting though about the whole experience. I didn't have that awful acidy bile-y taste after throwing up like I did pre-op. I barely had to rinse my mouth. It was strange to not feel that same yucky feeling after vomiting. Anyone else notice this?

Yep...sounds very familiar! I don't think I ever throw up all the contents of my stomach; it feels like it is just the last few bites. I've thrown up twice at work and I agree that bathroom is a LONG way away! Oh well...we will learn from our mistakes. ;)

Are you on a PPI? I have noticed on the few occasions that I vomited that I didn't have any bile taste or any yucky yellow acid. I think it's the PPI that keeps it in check.

I'm sorry you puked at work. I haven't puked yet and I'm not looking forward to the day I do.

I just did the exact same thing that you did with the mindless eating and puked my enitire sleeve out too! I wasn't reading, but I was totally distracted with a crying infant at home with an ear infection. I was hungry and rushing myself in order to tend to him as soon as possible and that's when it happened. The horrible chest feeling, I massaged it and beat on it like a drum because it does usually help......well not this time, right? OH MY GOODNESS!!! I hate throwing up and getting the slimies right before and after I do. I don't get the bile anymore either and I am not on a PPI. I just continue rinsing with cold Water and brush to try and get rid of the spitting which I hate SO BAD! Sometimes the only thing that will stop it is to suck on a piece of hard candy like a jolly rancher. I have to keep some in the house at all times in case a spitting episode arises.

      I broke 150 lbs today!!!!
      150 lbs has been my wall for the past 15 years.  I've dieted down to the low 150s 3 times only to regain what I lost and more. 
      I am now officially 149.7 lbs as of this morning.  Yay me!

      Tomorrow is surgery day...  I'm not sure if I'm nervous, anxious, excited or a little bit of all three.  I honestly thought I would be freaking out at this point, but I'm much calmer than that.  I suppose the last 7 months of preparation both physically and mentally has brought me some peace.  I say this now, but when I try to sleep tonight, that may be a different story.  
      I appreciate everything I've read on this forum that has helped me to prepare as much as possible.  I know this part of my journey may not be the same as someone else's, but having a good frame of reference helps a ton. 
      The most exciting and most difficult part of the journey begins tomorrow...

      Hey ya'll. SO. I got down to 199 for the weigh in but gained it all back right after. I have to do another month of weight management. They switched out the nutritionists at the last second and she said she doesn't pass anyone unless they have 5 veggies a week. I'm starting metformin and Farxiga today. Doc found a little bit of blood in my urine but wasn't too concerned. I'm trying not to freak myself out either. Depression is a little more intense than usual. I'm all over the damn place.
