Too tight??

While I'm not one to complain about the fact that I have control over my food and am eating like a sparrow... I'm also sicking up at least one meal a day, which is not normal for me (I'm usually a once a week girl). I contribute it to the fact that I'm eating at weird times at the moment, because of the travel and time changes... but... when I went out for a meal with a girlfriend yesterday I got through half a sushi roll... and I couldn't eat another bite... Half a sushi roll? What is that? That's nothing... I'm struggling with drinking stuff... like it takes me ages just to swallow a gulp. Maybe I should be sipping rather than gulping.

Anyhoo... I'm not complaining about the fact that I can't eat much, but I've found that I've started targeting the foods that I know I'll get down - like soup and ice blocks, and chocolate. My friend and I went out for a muffin and coffee after our exercise class this morning and after my coffee I ate only 1/4 of my muffin (and we shared a muffin cos we're both banded). We both felt kind of smug that we couldn't finish it. I've had a can of tuna since then and I am FULL.

I had a real issue with it on the plane though. It's not every day that you get to travel business class, and I couldn't eat much of any of the food - and it was soooooooooooooooooooo yummy.. but after 1-2 bites, I couldn't do any more.. and I got depressed (stupid brain). So then I tried to eat more and yep, up it came...

Ok, enough rambling from me today... Have a great weekend!

You have a good weekend too - I hope that you can keep a few more things down.
