Weird s**t your body does (or "I know I ate too much, I need to sneeze.."



Recommended Posts

I thought it was my allergies kicking back up and then I read about a year after my surgery that others do that too. I'll go into sneezing fits and deal with a runny nose. Irritating to say the least

I love it! I can pretend my tummy isn't full but I can't ignore my dripping nose! Clearly self control wasn't a strength for me pre-op. Having a big flashing red light (or in this case, a big dripping red nose) can't be denied.

I'm so glad you started this topic. I finally figured out the sneezing was after I ate. watery eyes, sniffling, the whole thing.

Thought it was allergies. Haven't read all the posts yet. But thanks.

I have a weird hiccup-burp thing I do when my stomach is full. It's a combo of them both at the same time.

If I eat sushi--with a little rice, I am prone to a drippy nose and a bunch of sneezes. Sometimes, I have to lay down.

@@Elode - that's a very good description. I call it a hiccup, but you know, it really is a cross between the two. I never really thought about it that way.

I get this feeling like there is a sideways burp that can't come out.

I don't know why but for some weird reason I think the sneezing is cute. I can now smell fast food a few blocks away in my car and I used to have a very weak sense of smell. I'm drawn to the smell of regular food (well food I cannot eat) but I become overwhelmed like it's just too much for me and my eyes dilate or something I feel something weird happening with them and I have to walk away from it fast.

I like the little symphony of gurgles and noises my stomach makes after drinking fluids. It goes on for quite a while - like air bubbles are rising to the top of a container...

When I am in Colorado (altitudes over 6,000') I wretch if I eat anything starchy. It's odd. I don't have this problem when I'm closer to sea level. It's happened twice, so I'm now very conscious of it. I don't know if its my diaphragm working harder to get air in but it is very real. Feel free to validate my experience flat landers ;-)

And, NO I wasn't smoking anything ;-)

I feel kind of bummed! I don't have any cute sneezes or hiccups or burps or anything like that to tell me I'm done eating. All I get is this feeling that is a little tight between my breasts. Sometimes my tongue feels like it's drawing back and that's it. I also get the cold all the time which is AWESOME because I used to be so hot and sweaty all the time and now I can wear all my cute sweaters and mittens and scarves and it's mostly fine. LOL

Perhaps herein lies the problem. Please repeat the test with the proper Colorado medication and report back. All in the name of science of course.

I am all in favor of the recreational legalization -- No Carbs, No Calories. Once America's women figure this out it will be the law of the land. (Women always get what they want, eventually, I make this statement after working professionally in politics for 30 years). I made sure a friend who is suffering from breast cancer got some and it has proven to be very helpful stuff.

I am in New Mexico right now. We are at 7,000 feet. I am visiting for 6 days keeping the Grandkids. I have had issues eating a lot of thing that I normally don't have issues with. I seriously think it is the altitude. I have no other explanations. I typically have no issues when I am at home.

i live in Colorado at about 6500 ft and I've never noticed a problem, but I haven't been down from our altitude to see what it's like closer to sea level. I have great restriction all the time though. I couldn't overeat if my life depended on it.

      RE: the running/training
      Honestly it started with me just doing laps around the kitchen that first post-op week.
      In a week, I graduated to walking up and down my street, then to walking around the block every day.
      The distance increased, then the speed.
      Then I started running little spurts during my walks, then to alternating 1km runs with 1km walks.
      And now I can do a continuous 10k (which I totally did for the first time this morning...so full of myself about it today, it’s disgusting.)
      Just do something everyday and slowly increase speed and duration, next thing you know you’ll be one of those odd “running people” (who I never understood pre-op, but now totally get, lol)

        Happy Sunday! I like weird people. Normal people are boring! :) I began following you and wanted to know if there are any other members you would recommend? My surgery is 8/29/19 and I want to learn as much as possible. Have a great day and thanks so much for the website.
