This used to be my most favorite snack to nosh on. Well it was until I got 8.5 cc’s into my lap band. I had zero restrictions up until Thursday, September 27th. The last couple of days I have tried very very very unsuccessfully to crunch on these greasy treats and swallow … only to have them literally get stuck on top of my band. And believe me, the pain was intense and god-awful. And I found no relief with adding water to the mix.
Good thing I have a bad gag-reflex … the only time I can say I am happy that I have that. A bad gag-reflex. Up-chucking mushy chips are not a lovely time for me. But sadly, I am no longer going to be purchasing these. Boo hoo. Thankfully sunflower seeds are still going down okay.
This past weekend, I tried old foods with the chips and they also were difficult to swallow and keep down. I had some mashed potatoes and gravy last night and that seemed to be fine. But wow … the new fill is FINALLY working … And I feel FULL after whatever goes down the chute too.
I am going to give my lap band a little bit more time to loosen up some …. but maybe it won’t … that would make me giddy knowing that I am forever in the GREEN ZONE …. I’m just still dumbfounded as I don’t know what to expect with this 8.5 cc’s.
