Okay, so I took a chance last night and decided to give in and let hubby go out to dinner cause he has not been out in a long time. So we picked a steak house that we love going to that is a bit on the pricey side. I scoped out the menu online though so make sure I'd easily be able to get something I could tolerate as this was my first meal with solid foods and not mushies.
The most amazing this happened at dinner that made me feel WONDERFUL.. Let's start with background - the FIRST time hubby and I went to this place BEFORE my band - they brought us a free shrimp cocktail appetizer. Hubby does not eat shrimp and I normally only eat it fried... Not a big seafood fan, but none the less, I ate the entire shrimp cocktail, my salad, some bread, my steak, baked potato, mushrooms, and veggies.
Looking back, I don't know how in the heck I ate all that, but again, that was before band. So fast forward to last night. I was a little worried since this was my first solid meal and I'm worried about getting stuck, especially trying out a new food. So after some thought on if I should order a chicken dish and get a to go box for left overs or an app and share some of hubbies potatoes and veggies, I decided on the shrimp cocktail!
I ate 2 shrimp, a tablespoon or so of mashed potatoes, and 2 bites of the veggies....... Yup. I was satisfied. I stopped when I didn't feel hungry any more and I stretched all that out to last with how long it took hubby to eat his prime rib and potatoes!
After that I just couldn't believe how I went from eating everything to eating such a small portion. It felt GREAT!!! :)
