Trying to eat solid foods

Recommended Posts

So for past week I havent been able to eat more than 3 bites of anything solid before I feel its going to make me sick. Ive tried fish, chicken, turkey, hamburger, salad it doesnt matter what it is it gets stuck feeling in my esophagus. Yes Im doing small bites and chewing it to mush. I always end up back to shake to keep my energy up.

Only thing different is Im now exercising vigorously. Could my workout program be causing it? Doesnt make sense to me but at this point Im about to go back to the doctor!

For some reason I can eat a small amount of solid foods in the afternoon but if I try in the evening around 5pm it comes back up. It's still a mystery to me but I find myself drinking my Protein for energy as well while I figure this out. I have some friends that are about a year ahead of me and they said they went through the same thing and can eat anything with no problem now.

Experiencing the same here... glad to hear it will pass.

I could get 3-4oz of soft foods down without a problem, but solids do not want to cooperate regardless how much I chew.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

        I guess I could, but the idea of being out there for all to see just skeeves me out! Nope, not for me ;)

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
