I'm talking about Betsy the Band. She showed me who's boss. Who's in charge. Who's driving this train.
Last night i went to a dinner meeting where they had vegetarian chili. it was very watered down and not a heck of a lot of beans in it. i only ate about 1/4 of a small cup of it and even though i wasn't particularly hungry, when i came home i nibbled on and finished a clif bar because i knew i needed more protein and calories.
since it went down rather smoothly, i thought maybe Betsy and my stomach had finally gotten acquainted and loosened their choke hold on me.
this morning i ate a mini babybel light on the way to work. no problem. then i started in on my chobani greek yogurt. once again, took me about an hour to finish. sigh.
about an hour (11:45ish) later i drove to the foodstore to buy some fish and sweet potatoes from the deli for my lunch. i got back and thought hmmmm.... i really should try to eat some of this before my next slew of meetings. note.... i was not in the least bit hungry.
i managed about 3 small bites and that was it. Betsy said HELL to the NO missy!!!!!
So I closed up the container and put it aside.
I had a coffee from starbucks since I needed to go there for a job. I'm all of a sudden becoming a coffee drinker since the band. weird.
It's now 6pm and I'm home and just now feeling like tackling the fish and sweet potato again because I actually AM hungry. Have to get some in before I go walking in about 20 minutes.
This Betsy chick has gotten awfully bossy since her fill.
I officially weigh in at the surgeon's office tomorrow morning (part of his agreeing to do the surgery is that you agree to weigh in weekly).
ladies... I can SMELL onederland. And boy does it smell GOOD
