Dear Friday,

what the hell took you so long to get here????

No, it wasn't a bad week.
Not at all.
In fact, it was a good week.
A nice week.
But......I'm still so ready for the weekend.
Aren't you?

Tonight we are getting together with my dear spirited girlfriends and their lucky husbands to try out a new local restaurant that's getting some rave reviews.....Il Burloni.
The funny thing about being a Lapbander, going out to dinner takes on an entirely different vibe.
Sure, I'm still interested in the food.....naturally.
And, I'm still all about the entire experience of dining out.....of course.
But, I'm into it all in a very different way.
For instance, before Lapband, if we were going out to dinner, I would starve myself all day long just so I could overeat at dinner.
I had this theory that I wanted to really enjoy the meal.
As if eating a ton of food is what is enjoyable.....
And, of course, I'd have to really think about what I was going to wear.
As in--will I still be able to sit comfortably in it after the meal?
Would I have to unbutton my pants?
And, there was no doubt in my mind that I would have an appetizer, a full course dinner, a cocktail or two, some wine and dessert.
Because I was out to dinner.....enjoying myself.
I guess you can say I have found a new and improved way to enjoy myself.
Yes, new and improved.
Just like me.....

Thank you Lapband.
Thank you Friday.

so how exactly do you dine out nowadays, Judi. Do you still order lots and just sample or have just an appetiser?

That is exactly how I would be when I would be going out to dinner:) Totally different now, where I will only order an small main and slowly eat through about half of it, while every one else has three courses:)
