Feeling in stomach when I am upset



Recommended Posts

I am wondering if I am the only person that feels tightening in their stomach, since they have been sleeved.

It is extremely noticeable and almost feels like my whole stomach is constricted. I do not dare to eat until I calm down and feel my stomach to relax.

It is so strange. It will even happen if I am watching a show that is upsetting. Things that never made my stomach upset cause this feeling. I can not tell what will cause this to occur, but I am learning. I am just curious if anyone else has noticed this.

I know! That's the feeling my skinny friends were talking about! In my opinion my stomach was too big to notice anything. Now that it's a small delicate thing it has to be relaxed to get food in. I love this! Never before I had problems eating and I now love having them and saying that "I am too stressed to have lunch right now".

I actually dealt with this pre-op. My stomach would literally not allow me to eat anything of substance when I was overly stressed or upset.

After being sleeved, nothing has changed. My husband and I can have a huge blow-out argument, or be dealing with a high stress situation with his job, with our son, or with the pregnancy, and I end up only eating mushy food. It's not the comfort foods or junk food, but I really focus on eating yogurt, soft cheese, chili, or Soup just because I know that I'm not going to be able to really eat anything solid for a couple of hours.

      WOW by the Grace of God 17 years ago I went to Mexico and had a lap band put on for weight loss and my waist was 64 inches and That’s more than 5 foot around and 18 stone  my weight was 375 pounds. Today I went shopping for not sweats and I succeeded. I found pants and a shirt at an awesome price at Burlington by the way. But the real story here is, today. My waist is 45 inches and my weight is 260. Both incredible numbers but think about this. My waist is almost 20 inches smaller around Wow that’s a brain wrecker.  Still, I love my band  I even celebrate it’s birthday 10-26-06 FYI-it’s kind of like choking yourself, and never letting go. And trying to eat. lol Life is good

      Hi all! I’m Heidi, a Canadian ex-Pat living in Sydney, Australia. I’m doing this surgery because my mom died 10 years ago from obesity, she lived her own 600lbs life.  So at 116kg, it’s time to make sure my daughters don’t lose their mom to obesity.

      Drinking my favorite Premier Protein Shake for breakfast, and planned a nice healthy lunch today. Protein first, Veg second, then fruit, and carbs last.  💪
