What Is It About Del Taco????
I just have a gripe to make here, but it is only with myself!! With my last Fill (#5), I have noticed that I do have some restriction (hallelujah!!). But since I am up most of the night, and don't get out of bed until somewhere between 10am-11am most mornings, I find it hard to eat very much, too early!!
On the days that Walt is working from home, or doesn't have to go in until after lunch. We usually go out to eat, and it is usually at a fast food place. Because Walt loves Del Taco, and it isn't expensive, we do tend to eat there at least 1-2 times a week. The problem, is that every time we have eaten at Del Taco since my last Fill, I have had to spend at least a half hour in the ladies room, slimming!!
I don't get it. I am eating hard shell Tacos for god sake! It's not like I am eating something that can easily block my stomach pouch. I can easily chew up the hard shell into tiny pieces, so it shouldn't be a problem. So why can't I eat 2 hard shell Tacos, yet I can eat a whole Cheeseburger from Carl's Jr (at the same time of day) with no problem, including the bun, so long as I eat slowly, and chew, chew, chew???
And at night, I rarely have any trouble eating, so long as I am careful. So I guess that I will have to experiment some more there. I think that I can eat 1 Taco without getting stuck, so next time, I am going to eat just 1 Taco and a cup of Refried Beans. Time will tell......
In other events today, not too much happened except that we completed our Post-Filing Credit Counseling Self Study Course online today. It is the next to the last item we had to accomplish before our Bankruptcy could move forward. The last step is to actually attend the Trustee Meeting in May. Then wait for the Bankruptcy to be discharged. Whew!! This Course was a bit more comprehensive than the Pre-Filing Course was, and was to take a minimum of 2 hrs to complete. And we had to complete it together. Today was not the day for me to try to read, concentrate and retain the information necessary to pass the test! I say this because today was one of those days where I needed to take an afternoon nap!! But I managed to get through it anyway!
By the time we were finished, it was dinner time and both of our stomach's were growling! So we decided to walk down to our local pizza joint to get some Spaghetti and Meatballs, then walk home! And of course, the entire walk back was uphill, as usual!! But this time, I made it without too much pain or trouble. So I am happy about that. Yes, I can still eat Pasta!! So why not some lowly hard shell Tacos? (tap, tap, tap of the fingers on the desk) LOL
Tomorrow we leave early in the morning to drive to the San Francisco for Walt's Specialist Appointment. Cross your fingers that this Doctor thinks his problem is nothing too serious!! And of course, I will be taking my crochet bag so I don't have to watch Walt weaving in and out of the heavy Bay Area traffic!! I will let you know what they say later. So, till next time...
Aloha My Friends :)
