I originally just sent Amy a message about this, because I didn't think I could share it with everyone. But then I remembered how it's important for everyone to get the good and the bad. And I thought I'd share.
Last night I went out for dinner with one of my closest friends in Stowe, S. We actually had a glass of wine at her apt before we left and indulged in other things that make you even hungrier. We went out for a reallly nice dinner - she doesn't know I'm banded so I was pretty nervous about how it'd go, when / if I'd get stuck, etc. I ordered apple-sausage bread pudding to start because the server said it was amazing and it sounded soft, and then a beef dish for my main.
Because we're good friends with the chef and maitre d, we were comped a bottle of wine (which meant S's bf was gonna be picking us up!) and treated like royalty all night - we were served TWO EXTRA COURSES. The first was pate which I had never really tried but figured I had to and it was actually pretty good... And the second was goat cheese fondue. I DIED IT WAS SOOO GOOD.
Everything was delicious. And I don't know whether it was the wine sips pushing things down or the chew chewing but I never got stuck or over-full till right at the end. Which kind of freaked me out. Seemed like I got out home free.
Then I went to bed. It's my t.o.t.m. right now, and so I had the worst cramps and gas pains and stomach ache all night long, had to get up a million times to use the bathroom, had to take Gas-X, have no interest in ever eating again... Am feeling very sorry for my poor little stomach pouch.
I'm gonna treat her and me very nicely in the next few days... And take responsibility for the weight gain I'm sure might ensue from last night's binge.
The weirdest/hardest part was my friend was like I'm so proud of you for eating, you know you don't always have to be on, blah blah... Which would be true if I didn't have the band. Who knows. It's a new day and I'm back on track.
