Here I am, most of the way through and E.N.T.I.R.E. full sized plate full of egg noodles and cheese (and some other stuff). Maybe it's not the salad that's kryptonite? Maybe I just need a fill? I've only had a couple of bites here and there of pasta since surgery - cuz I was told not to eat it as it will fill the pouch quickly.... um... not so much.
I sometimes struggle to eat yogurt and cottage cheese and chicken and... well anything really; soft or hard. But, if I am in a mood to eat I seem to be able to get it down, whatever it may be and however much of it there is. I made this plate and I said to myself - "hey dorko, did you forget you have a band? There's no way you'll be able to eat all that." And I replied "eh, I'll stop when my band tells me to" Yeah well, it's mostly gone and the band has remained mute on this point.
I did just get up and throw the rest away - not because I couldn't eat the rest, but because I was grossed out by the concept of what I'd already eaten, let alone the rest.
I read Linda's post today about being motivated even more since she got back from the NY Brunch. She totally rocks - but man, for me - I've been basically eating non stop since I got back. I had that seriously to die for guacamole two nights in a row for dinner. (and it's not like I skipped the chips). And then the noodles tonight. Good god, someone stop me!
But back to the denial.... I'm thinking that despite the fact that there are lots of times and lots of things I struggle with eating at any given time - the fact that I can clearly eat WAAAAY more than 1 cup (let alone 1/2 C) of food some of the time is a sign that I need a fill. What do you all think? Or is it just that the band is fickle?
