There is a first time for everything...

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!

Hugs!
