It took almost two years, but rice did me in. My friend, who had gastric sleeve two years before me, said I would throw up in six months. It took a year and a half, but it was rice. I had a great time at a sushi place and paid the price dearly. Rice expands. I should have know this, but I threw caution to the wind. Fair warning to those who eat something that is a carb. Lesson learned!

Aah, the swelling carbs that keep filling your tummy even after you stop eating & then what your tummy can manage just regurgitates up.

My first experience wasn’t an excess of food, eating too quickly or eating something that was too dry or coarse which are the things that trigger the foamies or the regurgitation for me. It was a piece of well cooked mushy carrot in a stew at about 2 months. Ate it the day before no problem but the second day my tummy said no.

We all get to learn our triggers but it can be unpleasant along the way. 😁

I throw up when I eat too much, or too fast or when I don't chew well enough. I'm on a balanced diet (i.e. plenty of carbs but mainly from fruits). For health reasons, I try to have grains almost every day. I have rice often but only one ounce at a meal. Every body is different though, some can't tolerate starches or fat or sugar... Etc.

      Keep going. I guess I'm experiencing a stall almost 6 weeks out. Keep going.

      I hit my stall ALREADY 🤷🏽‍♀️ been at 300 for almost a week. I’m not worried about it though, because I know that my body is healing. I’m not in a rush, I loss 30 pounds since surgery which was 3 weeks ago. I’m just going with the flow and staying positive. 😁

        It's very common. Give your body a chance to "catch up" with its new reality and the weight loss will start again. Hang in there, I know it can be frustrating!

        Same with me. Lost 38 lbs from the week I started clear liquids prior to surgery. Did not lose an ounce for the last 10 days, woke up this morning and decreased 2 lbs. I think it is normal. Dont panic. Your body is in shock and trying to figure out how to readjust.

      First Orangetheory class back after surgery! #347 for me. Determined to take things easy- especially those ab exercises. Looking forward to hitting #350 this week.

        Hi, I have been having a look around the site, I cant find anywhere that you can delete your account yourself, However in the rules it indicates that staff can delete accounts so maybe use the "contact us" tab at the very bottom of the page and ask for assistance there.

      I loss 19 pounds my first 7 days post op 🙌🏽 (Water weight or real weight.. weight is weight to me.. I’ll take it lol) I make sure I keep my water with me 24.7 and I walk every chance I get. I cook dinner for my kids with no problems. I have zero cravings!  By next week I should be in the 200’s. Haven’t been there since high school 🥲
