Well not really.. I had it coming...
Today was fill day.
First the Bad News.. I gained and am now at 204.5
I knew that was coming, but I acted surprise.. "But doctor I don't know what I am doing wrong!!".
Doc -"Really??".. "What are you eating?"
Me- "All healthy foods!!"
Doc - "Really"
Me - "uh Huh!" "Maybe the band is leaking!!"
Doc- "The band is leaking?? Why don't we just talk about what you are eating"
Me thinking.. "G'Damn it!"
Me- "Alright, I eat stuff"
Me- "Like navel oranges and pizza"
Doc- "How long does it take you to eat pizza??"
Me- " How long does it take you to eat pizza??"
Doc (firmly) - "DON'T DO THAT, you are going to stretch out your pouch".
Doc - "You are defeating the purpose of the band."
Me- "But I am hungry!!"
Doc- "Eat six small meals a day. Perhaps we should take some xrays and see what's going on?"
Me - "No , I don't want to.. I will be compliant"
Doc "Let's see what kind of volume you have in there"
Me- "You don't know".
Doc - "Let's just see.. hmm.. 8 cc's.. I am going to give you .5cc"
Doc - "Please follow the band rules and do not drink during meals, I going to send the nutritionist in to speak withy you"
Doc- "Let's see how this water goes down.. good"
Me (thinking) -"Oh crap, I hate the nut.. she is as thin as a rail and always has a crooked part in her hair"
Fastforward to arrival home.
Let me see how this .5cc feels.. I am going to sip this protein drink... oh crap.. this is dribbling in my gut.. this restriction I feel!!!
So there you have it my friends... Restriction is once again mine.. But the doc was very serious about stretching your pouch ... and yes it can return to size, but not if you constantly eat more than that 1/2 to 1 cup volume.. there is a good reason you should measure or eyeball what you are eating...
I went for a walk tonight and yes my knee is killing me.. SUCK IT UP BUTTERCUP and MOVE THAT ASS is what the little whispers were in my ear..
And during that walk I had a good talk with myself "Self - I am sick and tired about not hitting onderland.. so that's it.. we are going to be there by next Friday.. When I go to game 4 of the Flyers vs. Blackhawks game in Philly... and you know what... no beeer at the game.. how's that for committment!! Self.. are you still there??"
