Work is crazy as ever and I didn't make it for a check-in yesterday. But I had to come tell you about what happened yesterday because it was something new for me!
I have had my Lap Band for over two years. Sometimes I'm tight and can't eat what I want and sometimes I'm loose and can eat anything. But I have always been able to take medicine, even large pills. Sometimes when I'm tight, I can feel them making their way through and it can be uncomfortable, but I have never had to spit them up or anything like that.
Yesterday, I took a large pill around 8am. I had taken a similar pill twice a day for the prior week. Although I noticed it didn't go right through, I paid it no mind. This happens all the time, it would find its way shortly.
I went to work and drank my coffee. Ate my oatmeal although I didn't finish it. Went to lunch and realized that I couldn't even eat broth soup. Wha? It didn't hurt like I was stuck, I was just uncomfortable and nothing would stay down. I ended up eating some cookies at 3pm which isn't healthy, but hey, they went down just fine!!
At 4:30 in the afternoon, I hiccuped. Along with the hiccup, up came something perfectly pill shaped which then melted away. WTF? How is this even physically possible? I just don't understand.
So, there is my pill PB story. Two years in and it is a first. As far as PB stories go, it is pretty lame. But I am for sure glad it is something I don't have to deal with on a regular basis!! I ate around 800 calories yesterday and that's stretching it, I think. I lost 3.8 pounds overnight. Ha! I'm guessing I will probably find them again before tomorrow morning, but it was fun to see!
