PJ and Daniela…
A sticky beak is a nosy person…. like the neighbour that pretends to water the garden when they are really checking out what you are doing……you would call them an “old sticky beak”! But when you say you are having a sticky beak at something you would be “having a look” or just looking at this and that…..browsing around. A sticky beak I guess is someone putting their “sticky” beak into others business!! lol
A lime spider………… well, you can have any flavoured spider. If it was coke it would be called a coke float though. Anyhooooo…… large soda glass or milkshake container….. vanilla icecream in the bottom, any flavoured topping that takes your fancy (or do you call it syrup?…the stuff you put on icecream anyway!!), then top it up with lemonade…..yummm, yum, yum. You have to add the lemonade really slowly though or it all bubbles over the side. so you serve with a spoon and a straw and mix it a little bit….sip….add more lemonade….mix…..slurp…add more lemonade etc etc You can make them really easilly at home. So, girls….homework for this week is to make yourselves a spider and I want to see photos!!. Why is it called a spider……..??? No farking idea!! 🙂
Well, since my third fill I am finally feeling the full force of this band business……..I am happy about it though. The lessons, however, are tough!!!!!
I had mince muck for tea tonight. We call it mince muck because it is never the same. Just mince, heaps of vegetables stirred through with whatever sauce is in the pantry like bolognaise, or in this instance, chilli and garlic. BUT …. the difference tonight was I cooked some rice for a change to have with it. I don’t think I have had rice since I was banded!! Strange, because we used to have it a lot. Anyhooooooo………………
Pain on a par with the lime spider incident. Thankfully it happened at home so I could stagger to the loo. Up it all came and I am still in pain as I write this. It hurt sooooooo much!! I have pain in my collarbones and it has even made my eyes ache this time!! Bloody hell. You just have to breathe through it and wait…….. all you can do!! I have read somewhere that others have had problems with rice……….ummmmm…….can I join your club? Once the initial heart smashing pain subsides you are left with a feeling not unlike the first couple of days soreness after having the band put in.
I am also a pig!!! I get that first initial “warning” feeling or “tight” feeling and even just outright niggly pain……… but do I stop eating??? Farking hell no!!!! Because I am hungry!! So I wait for it to subside and then tuck right back in again!! That’s what I did tonight………….and I was punished big time!! I ask for forgiveness from the great Kahuna band God and promise, from now on, I will stop eating the minute I feel that “warning”. I will get up and tip the rest into the bin or give it to the dogs or throw it on the roof for Stumpy and his mates!!! Consider me WARNED!!
In my defence I was eating probably half the amount I would usually dish up for myself and I was eating from my special small plate with a cake fork!! However, I could probably still win a coal shovelling competition using that little beauty:)
So, I have a question….. because, once the pain subsides…..I still feel the need to eat more and I am still feeling hungry and thinking about food all the time…..do you think I should go get another bit of fill?? Say about .5 of a ml??
I would really appreciate your input on this. I am trying really hard, but food is still the pivot that my life revolves around!! I am not eating as much as pre-band but I still feel like I am eating too much. I am putting in a big effort this last week to do more exercise…..and I have been! But I am still soooooo tempted by the “easy” stuff. Like desserts and cereals and things that are “greased” up and easy to get down. To be honest, I was ecstatic when that spider thing happened…… it pulled me right up and made me think!! I want that to be the case all the time…..not spewing of course, but to know that if I go past the “pain” warning I will chuck.
Sounds gross I know….but for me……I think I need more fill. I would be grateful of any advice and words of wisdom or “real life” incidents you have had and what you think.
