Thoughts of the day

I think I may have actually figured out how to eat.  Now I know that sounds strange, but I was beginning to think that I was too tight after my last fill.  I was pbing a lot.  It would seem that I was feeling bad after about 2 bites. 

I have made a concious effort to truely slow down and have discovered that was my problem.  My question to all of you wonderful ladies (and a few guys) is, I hate for my food to be cold.  How do you eat so slow without your food getting cold? 

Weight is still going well.  Food intake is right on track.  All is well now that I don't spend all day pbing.  Does anyone know how hard it is to puke in a baby powder scented diaper baggie?  YUCK  I don't know what was worse... the fact that I had to pb or the smell of that baggie! 

My new (old) phone is acting up today.  I washed mine over the weekend.  I feel like such an idiot.  My daughter and I took a long walk on Saturday.  I had on a hoodie sweatshirt and I put my phone in the front pocket.  When I got home, I was talking to my husband as I loaded the washer.  Since I was doing a load of darks, I took it off and threw it in.  It never even touched the ground to where I could have heard it hit.  All my fault.  So I am back to old trusty that spends most of its life in the drawer to cover all of the family members in emergency.  Well old trusty is giving me trouble that I don't understand.  It will not call my mother.  How weird is that?  I have tried dialing with the area code without the area code.  I even erased her contact with my phone.  It always says call failed.  I thought it was her phone at first, but I called her from my office phone and it worked just fine.  So I told her what was going on and told her to call me.  She called on the cell from her phone and it worked just fine.   It has been like this all day.  I know that some would be ok with this, but I talk to my mom a couple of times a day.  Now I have to text her (because that goes through) to call me.  How retarded is that?  Any ideas?  I desperately need a new phone!

Yay for figuring out how to eat. That's awesome and seems to me can be pretty tricky. As for eating before the food gets cold, um, I got nothing.

Bummer about the phone. So weird that old trusty won't call your mom. Very odd! Will it work if you manually dial her instead of calling from the contacts list?

I was having that problem too! I think we learn something new every day about the band.

Sorry...I've got nothing for the cold food problem. I take FOREVER, so food is always cold for me. If I'm at home, I'll throw the food in the microwave to warm it up. At a restaurant, well, you're just out of luck.

I'm still working on the eat slow part but so far so good. You could always make sure your food is real real hot that way it takes longer to cool down.

I eat a lot of cold food. I wish there was a good answer. I've had food get just plain gross because it is all cold and rubbery so I just threw it away instead of continuing to eat. You might try dishing out smaller portions and leaving the food in the pan where it will stay warmer. You can even leave the burner on low to keep the food warm.

I can not say how thrilled I was to read your comment on my blog! I was so down and lost and to see how having this surgery has helped you is such an inspiration. I am better today. Looking forward to the day that I can help inspire someone else with the same type story as yours! Thank you Heather. I really mean it. Thank you.

Sometimes I have to heat up food half way through. Its not ideal, but the loss is worth it!
