Tummy huwts.

For the first time since being banded, I felt so awful last night after dinner. I didn't really eat much else through the day, but for dinner I had a stir fry with a peanut sauce and lots of veggies. It was sooo good that I think I either ate too much or maybe it got stuck a bit..? I've never been stuck before so I don't know..the uncomfortable feeling was more lower in my tummy, I assume if you're stuck it would be higher up..? Not sure, but I was miserable last night, and I am so not going to eat that much again. I went back for more carrots *pouty face*.

On the weight loss front.. I had a kickin week. But I've noticed I have become a slave to the scale. In a wicked way it controls my day by it's reading that morning. I was noting this last night, because I had a .7 gain yesterday. I had a good day, shopped a little, did my workout as usual, but all day i just had a sluggish feeling. Like I wasn't as motivated or didn't feel as good after my workout. And it's because I didn't lose weight yesterday! I am going out of town next weekend and unless there is a scale in the hotel gym I will wean a little then. I would like to think I could weigh in once a week but .....doubt it.

Does anyone know Lauren Conrad from the Hills..well, I love her, and she just came out with her own fashion line...at Kohls! It is very reasonable and very cute. I tried on a couple of her dresses yesterday, in a size 16! They were snug around the middle, but nuthin my spanx couldn't work a little magic on. I ended up purchasing a wicked cool sequin jacket, and I didn't have to get and XL. I have been eyeing one of these for awhile. They are nice because you can wear them with everything, little skirts or jeans and heels. I've noticed already that more doors are opening up for me clothing wise.

  1. I've had the achey tummy feeling too, and I put it down to eating too much rather than being stuck. It was such an odd sensation because I didn't expect to feel it lower in my tummy (as you said), but rather in my "upper" tummy (ie the part above the band) - odd to feel achey in the larger tummy that has always been used to holding gargantuan amounts of food!
    Nice news on the shopping. I started sorting through my clothes today and found that nearly half my skirts are now too big - what a great feeling that is!

  2. It could have been the vegetables? Sometimes foods don't sit right in my stomach. For me being stuck has only happened in my chest.
    Great NSV love lauren and KOHLS :)

  3. Oooh yeah, that sounds like you overate - this I know cos I've done it a few times myself in the nine months since D-Day (or should that be B-Day lol)... stuck is the feeling you get in your chest - it hurts and you just want it gone and it's a little hard to breath right!! A tummy ache lower down usually means over- eating. Hope it sorted quickly (usually a good burp or some Eno does the trick!)...

  6. Yay shopping! That feeling you had was not stuck - you will know stuck when you feel it!

    I weigh every day but have learned to take the numbers in stride (mostly) since I know the overall trend is down!

    Congrats on your great progress so far!

  7. I agree with Gen, I just weigh every day, write the number down and move on... no stress. Try it, you might like it.

    It is about accepting where you are and then moving ahead. xo DL

  8. I do the same as Gen...works for me. I have never had that feeling you describe but being stuck is more like in the chest. Please post a pic of your jacket...it sounds devine

  9. I get that awful feeling down in my lower abdomen sometimes too and it's always when I've eaten too much. It's almost like it's my port hurting more than anything. If you are stuck more in the area of your pouch, you will know. It's pretty painful feeling more up in your chest right around the middle of your breast bone (at least that's where mine is).

    BTW...I love LC too! I'm going to have to go check out that line this week! Have you read her LA Candy book series?! Love them!

  10. A good way to ensure a great hotel gym is to check out http://www.HotelGymReview.com before you leave for your next trip. Also be sure to write reviews about the facility. We're a new website so we really need people to write reviews.

    Thanks!
