Well puree did not go so well this am - I guess I now know why some of you say that your band is tight in the am - yup so is mine.
Last night I took the plunge and ate puree a day sooner - and it was so good - mashed potato pancakes with yogurt - mmm they went down great - I was so happy.
Then boom this am Im eating the same thing and my chest hurts and my mouth starts juicing up and I have to stand up and go to the sink and hitting yourself in the chest does NOT make the food feel better. Damn those potato pancakes. The pain - wholly crap the pain. Then they went down and I felt better not before I spit and started panicking 'what have I done to myself'!!!!!
Ok - lesson learned - DO NOT EAT puree/solid food 1st thing in the am. Sticking to my tea - this will be hard I was a breakfast eater. Shit I don't even have anything in my band imagine when I get my fill.
I really need to be more careful and chew chew chew and look at what Im putting in my mouth. Ive been so focused on feeling better that I have not been focusing on my food choices other than texture.
After this event who should call but Gilly my guardian bandster! She gave me the 'talk' and put me straight and made me revisit my plan and the best of the call was that I finally get to meet her in person tomorrow. How excited am I!!!! Being up north here - we are fairly isolated (only a few of us here and in our neck of the woods) there is little opportunity to meet other banded people. So off to the best restaurant in town - yes Bluebird - soup for me and ??? for her. Im actually excited to watch her eat (yes if you're reading this I will be staring at you and counting your chews LOL!!!) There is no support group around here - Gilly was my first contact with this life and to all of you - now the blog world is my support group and Im so grateful for you all.
Thanks for being inspiring, great cooks, great cheerleaders, funny and amazing!!!! I can't wait to meet those of you who are going to BOOBS.
