It's All Good

Sunday, July 19, 2009

I had a very bad episode on Thursday night... I ate a bit too fast, and some of my food ended up being totally NON-BAND-FRIENDLY. I felt very sick. Face was flushed and hot, nose running like a faucet, left shoulder pain, tight in chest..... and so as I walked around the house to sort of walk it off, raising my arms above my head (sometimes that helps the food go through the restriction) I prayed I would not have to PB. I hate it when that happens!

And this time, it was a pretty horrible experience. My tummy felt sore... blechh.

So I knew the best way to settle everything down was to go on protein shakes for at least a day. And when I got off protein shakes to chew, chew, chew everything in small bites. And mainly protein!

So I am totally psyched that when I got on the scale today, it showed 217. AND a non-scale victory was being at the beach yesterday - I went into one of those "skinny girl" boutiques (you know the ones I mean) -- and I actually bought a halter style beaded neck blouse that looked pretty darn sexy (at least my husband saidi it was!) And, even though it was an XL, I cannot recall the last time I fit into an XL anything. And, in recent memory, I was always wearing a 2x or 3x. I have NEVER bought anything in those teensy weensy shops. I don't think I ever went into one, growing up at the Jersey Shore. There was no way my plus-size body would be seen anywhere near the merchandise. But today, I walked in confidently and asked if they had any larger size clothing. Go me!

The pic is a "representative" of the blouse stylistically but is not the actual blouse. Couldn't find a real pic. . It felt really good to be able to buy something in a store that I would not normally go into.

    Sounds like you had some positives to balanc eout the negative. I hate when stuff feels like it is stuck in the band.

    Sorry about your experience that you recently had with food. But you backed it up with an amazing experience in the "skinny boutique". You should post a pic of yourself in the new halter top. I agree it's awesome to be able to buy xl instead of xl with number before it. Totally awesome.

    Congrats on the progress you are making so far.

    Take Care and God Bless ! ! !
