It seems cutting back on the old coffee-ola seems to have done the trick with subduing the heartburn (touch wood.) After Alison commented that strong coffee but not lattes give her heartburn I decided to make my coffee with a slightly smaller scoop than usual (rather than the Mt Everest style heap I usually throw in the cafetiere) and add more milk. So far, so good. Phew; I'm very glad, cos giving up the old Java Joe would have made me v. sad.
In other news, the pesky scales are still stuck on 13st 13lbs or 13st 12lbs. Ho hum. Still, as hubby pointed out at least I'm able to sit with him and Arthur and eat breakfast, lunch and dinner (albeit small portions) which I really struggled to do when my band had got super tight. You win some, you lose some (or don't lose some)!
Hope you are all keeping well out there in Banded Blog Land. I read Steph's post about how so many of us are falling of the blogwagon - perhaps it's difficult when we are this far into the journey to be blogging 'I lost a pound, I put it back on, I stayed the same' whereas previously it might have been 'yaaay, my new lowest low' or 'NSV' or 'I reached goal' on an almost daily basis. I also sometimes feel that I'm under pressure to blog for fear of falling out of the blog loop, or being forgotten about; I don't want either of those things to happen, but I also don't want the blog to feel like a millstone round my neck whereby I feel guilty if I haven't updated in a while. I also have another blog (which I'd started waaaay before the band blog) which I have to update so that keeps me blogging busy. It's tricky, and I sure don't have the answer.
