It has been a real struggle making healthy choices during this very hectic holiday week. We had dinner tonight with my two granddaughters at their favorite Chinese restaurant. I think I did pretty good with my choices. Chicken, a little rice, seafood. I had 3 shrimp, a couple bites of rice and felt that tightening of my band. I pushed my plate away and sat for a minute to see if it would pass. It didn't so I excused myself and headed to the ladies room. I did PB, but just a little (because I stopped). I thought I was chewing the shrimp & chicken well, but I guess I need to get better at judging that stopping point. Maybe it was the rice? I have read posts from people who cannot do rice once they got some restriction.
I am happy to finally feel restriction, so I am certainly not complaining :)
