Lesson Learned

Ok. So, I have now discovered what happens if I either overeat my band or eat the wrong thing. Holy crap! I just thought I had pain before. I was wrong. Very, very wrong.

There I was, munching on Cheeze-it crackers. I'm allowed to have these. Usually, they are no problem. However, I fell into the old habit of eating them too fast and not chewing well enough. Oh... my... goodness. I will not do that again. I promise. It was 20 minutes of the most uncomfortable, bordering on sharp pain I have ever felt. I would say I vomited four times but, that conjures incorrect images. More like regurgitating or coughing with chunks. Each time, it was one sharp, explosive exhalation and that was it. No dry heaves or nasty taste. What went down came back up. After each time, I felt so much better... until the pressure started up and I begged my office walls not again and promised I would be good. After the last time, everything settled and it was like it never happened. However, this is one lesson I will not forget. In truth, I was curious what would happen. Kind of like a child with fire. Like that kid who got burned, I know better now and it is a lesson I do not want to repeat.

Of course, now I'm hungry again.
