Too much food can be bad

As my title says, too much food can be bad.  Bad in that it makes you throw up when you have a lapband in.  I have discovered that, when I'm at work, I tend to eat too fast because of a lack of time.  I have thrown up at least 4 times in the last two weeks because of this.  So, I am having to relearn how much to eat, how fast to eat and how to chew things up completely.  You would think we would all learn this as children but obviously, the lesson was lost on me.  I'm working on this.  I actually suspect that if everyone did this type of eating, we would all lose weight and be healthier. 
I have an appointment next week with the bariatric doctor and I think we are going to need to put in another fill.  I am able to eat too much and not have a problem.  We'll talk about it.

Have a great day.

  1. Not fun!!! It's hard to relearn habits-- we were conditioned to eat fast and hearty in elementary school, where we had just a few minutes to eat and they wanted us to "clean the plate!" (That's my explanation and I'm stickin' to it!)
