Why did I do it??

Omg, bad food day all the way around.

I went to the movies with my mom today and we were planning on some chicken piccata at a little Italian place there where the movie house is at, but they were not open (a lot of things there are either closed down permanently or closed on Mondays). So... the only other choice we had was Cheeburger Cheeburger. Okay, not the best, but not the worst either.

However... I must be in REAL need of a fill because I was starving (okay, it was 1:30 and I hadn't eaten yet) and I got and ate a cheeseburger with onion, pickle, lettuce, and chopped garlic. To boot, my mom and I split a small onion ring.

Here I've been bitching about the scale not moving (though I swear I've been doing everything right) and these were my choices. Worse yet, I was hungry enough that I ate it, bun and all!

Okay, fast forward to tonight. I had leftover Chinese from last night -- egg foo young. It's all I had, but I ate the two that were remaining after last night. Now I'm stuffed, the first time I've been FULL since surgery, and I feel that familiar uncomfortable feeling I used to feel back pre-surgery when I'd eat way past satiation.

Two bad choices in one day, and waaay too much for dinner. Some of it may have been the fact that I had such a big lunch and it was still with me (lunch came about 2:00 and we ate dinner at 8:00), but still... I feel bad about how it went.

The GOOD news is I have been exercising since I've been here visiting my folks, almost every day. Today we went to the gym. I'm sure it wasn't enough to combat what I did, but at least I don't feel it was a total loss. :(

Well... I guess I don't have to worry about the scale reading 244 anymore, huh? *growl*


  1. you sound just like me before I got a fill a few weeks ago, it has made a huge difference for the FIRST time since having my surgery (a year ago) I really, really just can not physically overeat - I finally feel like I understand what the band is supposed to be doing!!

  2. It's been amazing to me how the first week or two I feel SOME restriction (okay, I eat about a cup of food at a sitting and I do pretty well for 4-5 hours -- not really "restriction," per se, but you get the idea) and then *POOFTIE*, it's gone. I guess it's my insides getting smaller.

    I don't know how long it'll be before a few small bites will do it. It sounds like for you it was a year; my friend has experienced it for a time at maybe 7 months out.

    I just have to be patient -- a virtue I do NOT have.
