I was a little disappointed with my scale this morning. I am still stuck at 316.6 - really?! Down to the ounce the same weight as Sunday?! I have started eating mushy food this week, so this could be the cause for the pause... we'll see this Sunday how the official weigh in goes. I have noticed that I have lost some inches, though! Unfortunately I didn't take any measurement immediately before surgery (they did some in the doctors office back in October when I started the whole band process), but I can tell that my clothes are getting more roomy, even my SHOES are getting a little loose! =)
Today I decided to have a chicken nugget. This was not planned out. I went to McDonalds for their Yogurt Parfait thingy because I was tired of eating mashed potatoes for lunch. Well... somehow, I ended up ordering nuggets. The words just flew out of my mouth! I had one, and apparently got a little to excited about my long lost friend, the chicken. (Keep in mind that I am not supposed to be trying solid foods for another 2 weeks...) I got stuck. There have been a few other times when I *thought* I was stuck, but wasn't sure.... but oh, I was sure this time. So... my pre-band instinct kicks in and I take a sip of drink to wash it down. No ma'am... wrong answer. I could feel the drink just sitting there on top of the food...not budging. Then my mouth started to water, making the situation even worse. It only took about 3 minutes for me to work up burp. Up came the water, and apparently it was enough movement to get the nugget going in the right direction, cause it went down. I think it will be a while before I try solids again. I guess that's what I get for trying to move at my own pace and not what the doctor told me... huh?
