My Band Name and Slime Slime Away!!

Easter is coming! by Through Joanne's eye.



Hey Ya'll,

I finally decided on a name for my Band.  I am calling it...Carni/Hank.  It is short for Carnation, my favorite Flower and...my DH's nickname!!  Cami is my ever loving, gentle, supportive, sweet...Band.  Hank is the Supportive, but....Get In My Face Rock, when I need a...Swift Kick In The Ass, to get back on track!!!  LOL  

Just to let you know, I too am having some problems with my Band lately, surprise, surprise!!  I am usually pretty good about my eating and I rarely get Stuck or PB.  In fact, I have only really had 2 PB's, the second one just yesterday!!!  Luckily, as bad as it was, it wasn't nearly as bad as my first one!  You remember the one I had while driving in Nevada?  The one that lasted about 1.5 hours?  Yea, it was BAD!

This one occurred while Walt and I was having lunch at Del Taco.  I had eaten about 2/3's of my Beef and Cheese Burrito (I gave the rest to Walt) and a couple bites into my hard shell Taco, when I realized that I might be stuck!  Ugh!  So I stopped eating, put the Taco down and just started to  talk with Walt.

Within a few minutes, the symptoms of sliming started.  So when I was fairly certain that I would be sliming, I excused myself so I could go into the bathroom.  I was in there for about 30 minutes (thank god no one else came in).  Luckily, like I said, it wasn't a REALLY BAD episode.  Just bad enough to make me not want to leave the bathroom, so that I could stand over the toilet and spit out the slime.  Although at the end, I did finally PB a small about of the Meat.  After that, I was fine and was able to eat what I wanted later with no problems!!!  But my guess is that the closer I get to some real restriction, the more diligent I will need to be to ensure this isn't a habitual thing!!

Well, I guess I should go for now.  I will be posting an update on Walt's Medical problems later.  So....till next time.

Aloha My Friends  :)

OMG! I have started to carry a bag with me in my car, JIC! But I really don't want to have to use it, unless I have to.

I had the same problem with a burrito a couple of weeks ago after my fill. Two bites and 20 minutes in the bathroom spitting into the toilet. I took the burrito home and ate most of it hours later. I am now eating with NO problem so am anxiously waiting for my fill on Wednesday so I can get back on track and stop eating like I don't have a band. I too have little ziploc bags in my purse, just in case.

A friend with a band (the only real band person I know) visited over the weekend. She's a teacher and can't leave the room if this happens to her. She tells me she has a glass of water which she spits into but the kids think she's taking a sip of water. The things we do. She now says, she tries not to eat anything close to class time.

Guess you got some restriction. Yeah!

Yay for restriction...boo for sliming! Love the name (I was glad it wasn't Carni Wilson LOL).

Debi said...

Thanks guys! Yes, I have occasional restriction. But it appears to be mostly in the morning, by afternoon/evening, I can eat pretty much what I want.

I thought of the connection to Carni Wilson too! Which is why I made sure to mention it was my shorthand for Carnations!!

Hey Debi...Thanks for visiting my blog today. I don't have any restriction yet ---sooo I can only imagine what PBing is like. YUCK! Not looking forward to it! I have had a heavy feeling twice when I ate too fast--that was bad enough.

Debi said...

Hi Darlin 1! Yes, PB'g is just as disgusting as it sounds!! Hopefully you will be one of the lucky ones that never experiences it!
