Today is week 5... Some days I feel the restrictions while eating and other times I don't feel anything, but I stop at my portion size. Is that normal? It makes me wonder if something is wrong. Also. I haven't had any trouble eating soft veggies and such. I am getting liquids in quickly, but not too fast without trouble. What I am getting to is this... I seem to be doing ok, but is something wrong for me to be doing good and for tolerating things that others might not? TIA

Congrats on your surgery. Whoo hoo!

You seem to be doing fine. That’s great. Just remember, we all move the stages at our own pace. Some more quickly, others more slowly. Same with what our tummy can or can’t tolerate. Many can’t tolerate chicken or eggs or steak but I never had any problems with them.

You’re doing the right thing by sticking to your portion sizes. When you feel your restriction it’s definitely time to stop eating. It’s best to stop before you feel the restriction. Always eat your Protein first & eat slowly so the message you’re full or almost full gets through. When you feel full you’ve likely already eaten too much.

As you go along you’ll discover some foods are sliders - they slip through your system quickly so you won’t feel your restriction when eating them. I’ve also found some foods trigger the restriction more quickly than others for me.

Stick to your plan. Listen to your body & you’ll continue to do well.

Good luck.
