Do you have a FULL trigger? I sneeze when full!

I'm still working on figuring out an absolute sign. I've been noticing more of a gurgle feeling/noise as I'm getting full. Unfortunately, I end up with hiccups after I'm already too full and it makes the pain even worse.

That sucks! Congrats on yor weight loss!

I get violent hiccups and a runny nose if I push it too far.

No triggers for me. I asked my doctor the other day " how will I know when I'm full?" He said "just listen to your body." So umm.... yeah, I still don't know. I just stop eating after about 45 mins of trying... Sometimes, I feel like my food may be coming back up and take that as a sign... but sometimes that happens after 2 bites and I know that can't possibly mean I'm full. I think it just happens if I eat too fast or if the mean isn't sitting well with me.

Wish I had a sneeze or something...

I have full triggers that are in "stages."

Runny nose: caution, you're getting full. You might want to stop now.

Sneeze: You are full. STOP! (This stage has a couple of levels: 1 sneeze is mild. Multiple sneezes mean it's more urgent/severe.)

Hiccups: DANGER, DANGER Will Robinson! STOP, you daft wench!

Be glad you don't sneeze. It drives my wife crazy.

That’s really a funny!! I am pre-op, but having surgery in 19 days!!! 😬😬 People talk about the foamies or being uncomfortably or painfully full, but not often about knowing it’s time to stop! Even if it’s something as silly as sneezing, I’ll take any indicator that I’ve reached capacity!

You will do great and I hope you don't sneeze. It is a nuisance!

So far is am on just liquids and worried I do not have a warning sign. I definitely get pain when I drink too much but it goes away as quickly as The liquid runs through. This terrifies me as I can’t imagine that pain hanging around as long as food does. Yikes.

You will learn how much of what you can eat. I am learning this now. I am very happy with this tool. I wish I had done this a long time ago.

I get hiccups after almost every meal. Sometimes it’s just one but sometimes it’s normal hiccups that last for awhile. I’m also STILL learning how much I can and can’t eat. I eat too much more often than I’d like and I end up feeling like there is food in my esophagus just waiting to get into my stomach.

I usually have to let out a huge burp. It just comes out without any warning. It is very embarrassing when people, other than my husband are around.
