    That one spoonful too many is definitely hideous.
    I found that the only relief - I am super nauseous when this happens anyway - came from making myself vomit.

    Well done @soul sister!
    And enjoy your dinner - I do love chook.  This was a new recipe - the recipe was fine, the cooking method not.  And I had accidentally left it out on the bench  overnight after cooking, instead of refrigerating.  For the last week I have been living off pumpkin soup and poached eggs.  And for the last  couple of days LCHF "sushi".  Nori wrappers, avocado, mustard, grated carrot and smoked salmon.
    @Millymollymandy a pesky weight plateau.  However, what is your goal weight?  
    All the best!

    Up 1.3 kg since last week - I am happy, as I was so sick.
    The bug grown was Campylobacter, so it was from the chicken.  (Haha - "The Chicken came before the egg" lol!)  I've been on antibiotics, which have literally been a life saver.
    Down 700 gm from 2 weeks ago from 47.7 kg to 47 kg, with a drop in body fat % from 23.3% to 21.8%
    Haven't been for any of my usual brisk 3.5 km walks, due to need to have a toilet nearby.
    But I am heaps better!

    I haven't had a band, but that sounds like reflux to me.
    Best to go back to your original surgeon and get it checked out.
    All the best.

    Maybe, if you are not already doing so, try the low-carb beers?   "Moosehead" has NO carbs!  (I haven't tried it yet).  My favourite beer is Hahn Superdry 3.5.  It's got flavour, unlike Ultra Blonde.
    Hey!  At least you are losing!  And still enjoying healthy, nutritious real (not processed) food!
    All the best,
    :)

    2 kg down this week to 45.72, 22.5% body fat, BMI 19.3
    And no, "well done!", "congratulations!".
    Two words - severe Gastroenteritis.  I'm putting my money on Salmonella - but will know for sure when I get the lab. results back.  Didn't get to see my usual GP on Monday as she was totally booked out, so saw another one, who doesn't know me.  I believe that my normal GP would have hospitalised me. 
    I had (home-cooked) chicken earlier on in the week last week.  Licked the batter off the beaters and spatula after making a batch of mini low-carb chocolate muffins - batter contained raw eggs ....   on Wed, felt queesy Thurs, and earlyish Fri am the diarrhoea started .... and is still continuing, day 6 today
    Yesterday I was able to increase my fluid intake (obviously I was dehydrated, and electrolytes were out of wack, and have got my hydration levels back up to 52%, which is my normal.  Gastrolyte/Hydralyte sachets and cold soda water.
    No doubt my weight will increase again as my ability to eat increases.  My GP will be happy!
