Gurgling and portion sizes

Ever since I had my second fill, everytime I drink something I gurgle. It's not a quite a burp, but it's loud enough for people to hear.. and if my mouth is open, it sounds quite strange. Perhaps one of the drawbacks of the band?? *lol*

Just to give you an idea of what foods and the amounts of foods I am eating at the moment, here is what I ate yesterday:

BF: 1 weet bix, 2 tsp bran, skim milk (eaten over 1 hour)
MT: nothing
L: Chicken Pasta Lean Cuisine (eaten over 1 hour)
AT: 1 tub fruit (eaten over 20 mins)
D: 1/4 schnitzel, 1/2 slice bread, 1/3 cup pesto pasta (soooooooooo full afterwards - even that was probably too much for me!)

I'm actually really happy with eating that amount, actually I think excited is more the word. I remember, pre-band that a LC meal would not even touch the sides and I'd be hungry an hour afterwards and dinner would consist of the whole schnitzel, 2 slices of bread and 2 cups of pasta with dessert on top of that. It's quite liberating for me that I'm not eating those size portions anymore. I LOVE my band! :)

Have a great weekend!

Hiya! Thanks for stopping by my blog today.

That gurgling sound means you're a little tight. I had my first fill today...and my first unfill, as I couldn't even get water down! :(

I was told that the water shouldn't be gurgling, or that means you're too tight.

Thanks for adding me to your blog...I'm adding you as well!
