Teri Posted December 21, 2006 Report Share Posted December 21, 2006 Just thought I would share with everyone the importance of not drinking with meals. When you have a fill, and literally can see the barium flow thru the band after drinking it, followed with water, you get the oppurtunity to see why drinking with a meal would not be good. I was surprised to see how fast it was, just like water going down a drain. I had a very hard time post-op when on solids before the first fill with drinking during meals. Thought it was "one of the rules" that I talked myself into, saying that I could do that. Just out of habit, not thinking, I would always get a drink when i fixed a meal. Since it was there, I took sips here and there with the meal, because I would talk myself into thinking I was dying of thirst. Not drinking with meals has been tough for me. Since the fill, and actually seeing liquids go through, it has been better. I guess my point is, I felt dieting was always sabatoged by family and friends, the whole social food thing being around people. Now, I am the one who can sabatoge my weight loss. Hmmmm..... :-?
