Am I swallowing wrong?



Recommended Posts

Such a stupid question!! I am CONSTANTLY burping!! One sip of Water = 3 burps lol.... Seems like a straw would bring less air into my pouch.... Anyone else need drinking tutor lessons?

How are you doing, other than burping? Lol;-) I had a lot of trouble with burping at first. My dietician actually had me use a straw to help with it. So I did for a couple days until I got better at swallowing less air. She said I had bad technique.

I remember having this problem in the first couple of weeks as well. Those darn burps can really be uncomfortable. It does have everything to do with swallowing air. Mine definately got better over time.'

Good luck!

I had constant burping for a little over a month but it has subsided. I was told NO straw.

Aside from burps I think I'm doing ok. I have a momentary "ouch"

When i take a sip of Water. Not sure what that's all about? But it passes quickly enough... The burps though. Ugh! Lol!! I see NUT tomorrow, I'm going to bring it up :)

Thanks everyone!

      Me: Hey Siri, Is it raining outside? (for my morning walks with the dogs)
      Siri: I don't think it's raining at the moment.
      Wet Dogs: Then why are we wet? This damn Siri person is more stupid than we are.

      I received my nutrition book and checklist today! I am so very excited (and a tad bit scared too) Each day this is becoming a reality!
      I created a new blog post about how BRAVE we all are for doing this. Because I think we are! Most of us know the horrors of people calling us nasty names, saying we can't control ourselves, we are easy targets for people's verbal attacks! But I feel we are BRAVE because we are taking control over our lives and creating a new world of happiness.
