Persnickety Scarlett

So my band, Scarlett as I lovingly call her sometimes, is being very, very persnickety lately.  I have not been able to eat a meal in the past 4-5 days without some of it coming back up.  WTH?  I have tried soft stuff, I have tried liquids and I can't keep it down.  I have not been able to eat breakfast for a while now so I don't even try, but lunch and dinner are a no go.  I am getting some good weight loss out of it though!  If it keeps up I will see the doctor, but for right now I'm ok with it. 

My grandparents are still here and we are having a great time!  Mamaw has not been cooking as much this trip, so that is good and bad.  I love her cooking but it's not good for you!!  Tonight we are going out to eat at some kind of fish restaurant.  If you don't know already, I HATE seafood.  It is disgusting to me, except calamari.  I will eat that, but nothing else I tell you!!  I hope they have some kind of fish free salad or chicken. 

I can't believe Chicago is only  days away!!  I am so excited.  I have already typed out my packing list and some things I want to do in Chitown.  I think Kristen and I may have dinner this week and I am sure we will talk about it!!  I can't wait to meet you sweet, wonderful women!!


  1. I know you said you tried liquids, but is anything staying down? Have you tried all liquids for 24 hours? That's what I often have to do - I swell badly.

    Hang in there! And good luck tonight with eating!

  2. OMG - days away - I cannot believe it either! Ima gonna hug you soooo tight! Thank you for your comment on the feature mean so much to me too!

  3. Sorry about your band. Linda and I had lunch today and now I'm even more excited about going. It's going to be so much fun.

  4. I figured this one out..eventually...well I think so anyway. I discovered I was eating too much and that is why some was coming back up. Try dishing up what you normally would and then put about 1/4 cup back. Test it out it worked for me.

    Have fun in Chicago.

  5. Hello fellow Alabama bander blogger! I hate seafood too. I wish I liked fish so that I could incorporate it into my meals because it's supposed to be so good for you, but I've never liked it! I can eat a few shrimp, but after about 4 or 5, I'm like "ehhh,, that was OK, but I won't want that again for a long time"... People always think I'm crazy when I say I don't like seafood...
