2 Pounds........OF FOOD

My father in law took my hubby and I out to dinner tonight for our wedding anniversary. We went to IHOP. Which is all good, I know I can eat omlets. The doc said we could have pancakes too as long as we use sugar free syrup, but I got an omlete instead. Since I know I can eat that I figured it would be safer. Wouldn't want to find out the hard way that I can't eat something in public. That would be embarrassing. My irrational fear of vomit aside, still embarrassing.

So, I order and omlete since I know I can eat those. The waitress brings this omlete out to me on a PLATTER! This bohemeth also came with three pancakes and hash browns. This thing was huge. Well, since I've been banded I've taken to asking for a to go box to be brought to me with my meal so I can put half of it out of sight right off the bat, and out of mind.

I ate about 1/4 of the gigantic omlete I received, maybe not even that. Well, remember the food scale I bought to help keep me on track? Well, I told my hubby that I was going to weigh my leftovers when we got home so I could see how much food there was left over. So when we got home I put this thing on the food scale and there was 2 POUNDS OF FOOD! After what I ate at the restaurant.

Before being banded, I would have ate all that. Without batting an eye. And probably still would have wanted more. No wonder I'm so fat. Wow, what a day, what a moment. Another good thing to come out of this was that since pancakes don't reheat very well, I gave them to my dog when I got home. Now my beagle thinks I'm God.
