Food, Glorious Food!

I can eat again. Finally. Three whole days of liquids. But you know what? No barfy. I made it without another PB incident. And for that, I am supremely grateful. This morning was still a little touch-and-go, so I played it safe with a protein drink, but I was able to eat about 1oz of hamburger and a bit of apple-fennel slaw for dinner (yes, I linked it. It was that good.). Hubs was a little surprised that I was even eating that, but I felt like I needed some solid food. We had a major morning-long meeting thing Friday and I was actually getting lightheaded during the festivities. I think I am in that space just next to the green zone, where I'm a hair too tight, but if I stick strictly to a half cup and chew like the devil, then things'll be fine.

Today I had an NSV too! I was brushing my teeth this morning when I noticed my clavicles are starting to pop out and that little hollow in my neck is appearing! I've never seen that in my LIFE. Actually, today was kind of a weight milestone too. I know it barely counts because of my unplanned liquid diet, but whatev. I have hit a new low of 203.2 -- I haven't been this low since around 2002. I distinctly remember this because I had just started working at Starbucks (and Lord knows there was no losing weight after I tasted lemon pound cake!). This doesn't change the fact that I have still been unsuccessful finding dress pants for work. Does shopping ever get better?

Funny, I was super excited when I started noticing collar bones too! I don't ever remember having those before.
Congrats!

All good news! If the PB'ing returns, please promise that you will get a little fill out? See Camilles blog today about how she is doing since her unfill.

Yeah for collar bones...I am so happy for you. It's funny how us women get excited over things so many others take for granted!! I've never had them before either. It's like getting a belated christmas gift!!
