Hi, My name is Kristen

and I may or may not have been a bandlemic tonight :(

I went out to dinner with a friend (non-banded, but knows I am) we went to an Italian restaurant, bad news from the beginning....Now lets take a quiz on what we think made me sick:

A) 2 Pieces of Bread before my meal
B) Big yummy juicy chicken
C) String Beans
D) Half of a chocolate chip cannoli
E) All of the above

If you picked E, I think your right!! Now I know 2 of the 4 things I ate are a no no (bread, dessert when full) I think the chicken and string beans caused it because they were so good, and I forgot to chew. Now you ask, why bandlemic? Because I knew not to eat the bread, yet I did...I knew I should slow down and chew, yet I didn't. I had already PB'd twice, yet still ate dessert! What the hell is wrong with me?!?!

One thing I can say is, I learned from this good as it looks, smells and sounds ITS NOT WORTH IT! EVER! The pain of my 4 PB experiences in the restaurant, all the way home WHILE driving (into the takeout bag) and for awhile once I got home was not worth the yummiest food in the world.

I just took 2 benadryl and I'm hoping to pass out soon and forget tonight happened and have tomorrow be a new day.

My name is Kristen, and I was NOT a model bandster tonight....


  1. Happens to the best of us! Here is hoping next time you will remember how awful it felt you will choose differently. love ya! xo

  2. Oh, you poor girl. That sounds horrible. I hope you're feeling better soon.

  3. No - you may not be a 'model' bandster (I pretty sure I won't be!!) but what you are is human!!

    The impressive thing is you have learned from your experience!!

  4. Totally happens to all of us at some point. The greatest thing is that you came on here and held yourself accountable!

    I had a PB experience in a restaurant once and it was horrible. I got up like 5 times during the meal and just left my friend chillin by herself at the table. Horrible. I also had a fun experience at Costco one time too. Never again will I go near their samples. Never.

    BTW. I SO looked for those damn Sweetheart candies today and one of our grocery stores. No luck. Damn. I don't even care about the candy inside!

  5. How aweful. Hope you are feeling better soon!!

  6. We are never always model bandsters, and we are all human and still make BAD decisions. The band works on the body not the mind. I hope you are sleeping peacefully and tomorrow is a NEW DAY :)

  7. OUCH OUCH!!! You made a wrong choice but if anything - maybe it helped you realise the things you shouldn't do. Just shrug your shoulders doll, and remember next time. x

  8. Awww Kristen, have been there and done that and can totally understand. It's a learning curve and one we all tend to experience at least once! I am not good with chicken and definitely green beans are a no go for me (but it took me a few goes to realise that I couldn't!). Even Model Bandsters slip up everynow and again.....

  9. We have all been there..that sucks. Now you know. Lesson learned..hope you feel better today

  10. We can't be model bandsters all the time! Saturday night I ate way too much and had some bubbly drinks - Bad Bandster, Bad! When I got home I went straight to my bed and could not get comfortable. Do you know how I ended up sleeping? Like a three year old child - with my butt up in the air! It was the only position that did not make my stomach feel like it was going to explode.

    You live and you learn, you are doing great!

  11. I hope you're feeling better today, I'm glad you called me. we all make these mistakes, you'll learn from it! xoxox

  12. What is PB..I'm guessing its something bad like when food comes up...oohhhhhh. I can't even stand the thought. I hope you are feeling better!

  13. Sorry lady! Hope you're feeling better today! xoxo
