It's actually not the food or the chewing I'm scared of! But actually eating it in case it comes back up. I have been following the 'chew chew chew chew and then chew some more rule' - this is more of a psychological thing I think. I'm scared to put anything in my mouth because I'll fail or put on weight again. I've not felt like vomiting, but know when I've had enough liquids... so I guess I'm on the 'sorta' right track. I had 4 mouthfulls of some semi solid (mushy) food today... before I couldn't eat anymore due to feeling anxious about eating too much & it was also mushy curry, so it was too spicey! ha ha.
I'm sure I'll get there - I have my first fill next week. I'm really looking forward to it!
Was anyone else too scared to eat coming off liquids? I've lost 9kgs in the last two weeks, which I was happy with (though I can't notice at ALL that I've lost anything) - but now I can start eating semi-solid food (like vita-brits etc) I'm too scared to!
I have tried a few little things, but end up only taking a mouthful or two before I decide I can't eat anymore in case I vomit! Prior to my operation, all I got was negativity and 'I know so and so who had it and it failed' (from people who don't know anything about banding) and from 'bandits' I got 'spew' stories.... so now I live in a constant state of anxiety about what I'm putting in my mouth incase I vomit / put on weight...
Where abouts SOR? I have a wonderful Psych (male) who is in Nedlands (I live NOR in Quinns and travel to see him I like him that much!) - he's a bit expensive, but I find it really worth it going to see him.
