Wow, so this is what restriction feels like? Holy cow. What a difference .4cc's make. I am not able to eat much - it takes me over 30 mins to eat a single greek yogurt (14g protein, 140 cal). I had an atkin's shake for lunch (15g protien, 160 cal). I ate a half a bananna for an afternoon snack (50cal,potassium) and I tried to eat some macaroni and cheese for dinner but got a few spoonfuls and PB'd. I got a really sick feeling - never felt that before - felt that desperate - I'm-going-to-throw-up-urgently feeling for the first time and it was more of a blank, dry heave throw up. Ugh, gross, and it hurt! I'm sipping some skim milk and there is just no way I can eat any more. This restriction is so differerent than I've ever felt - and I have the same side pains - like gas pains. Its almost like the burping isn't happening and I can hear the air churning around in my stomach. I know things will calm down soon and I will just wait it out.
ON a BIG note, I was dreaming this morning about what I'm going to look like if I lose this weight and decided I wanted to weigh 215 by this Saturday. That's like 2lbs in this week. Well, I got on the scale this a.m. and it said 215.5! Down from 217 just yesterday. I know that's water - but I also don't want my body breaking down my muscle for protien, so I am really going to push the protien supplements. I'm also taking Centrum liquid. Tastes awful! Once I'm done with the bottle, I won't buy it again, I'll buy a chewable or have some of the kiddo's vitamins. It will be so nice if my weight stays at 215 so it will be REAL. My weight really bounces around 2 or so lbs all the time. But I am excited to think this number could be real. What's it going to be like to be at 210 or below? I NEVER would have thought that could happen anytime soon. I'm so glad I got the 2nd fill. I just hope this isn't too tight and it relaxes a little.
Does my restriction sound normal to you all? Do you think this restriction will relax after a few days? If it does, I think I'll be perfect b/c I'm really afraid of eating solid things right now based on my experience just then with the mac n cheese! I should have eaten the fish first!
