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.
