Sore seat....

It seems that when I lose 30 lbs or so I lose it in my rear.  Sitting in a movie theater, driving for more than an hour, siting on the couch watching tv, sitting in a restaurant having dinner or breakfast, or sitting in the bed of my hotel room writing this blog and my tailbone gets sore and I am constantly changing position to get comfortable and sometimes the comfort doesn't come.  I will take it......just another NSV that is a little painful, but still means the same as any other NSV, I have lost weight and this is just another reward.  I know I am strange and maybe even  I will take it.

Ok so now on to more fun things..........

The Gilroy Garlic Festival in Gilroy, CA

Wow that's a lot of garlic.  Nice weather, good food, great sangria, and good exercise.  This is no small event either.  So many people, food, vender's, and of course garlic.  What I didn't have a lot of was water and not near as much food as I once would have had.  This brings me to my next topic....Have I lost my foodieness.....I know that prolly isn't a word but some of you know what I am meaning.  I wanted to taste many things, but I didn't want to stand in line to get a whole order of something that I knew I, one couldn't finish and two I didn't want to finish.  I can remember a time when neither of those reasons would have kept me from tasting something.  I know that these are good signs for my weight loss, but what about for my foodiesness.  Am I losing my love of food, and love of good food?  Or was I just tired and a little dehydrated, and really trying to keep a handle on what I am eating?  Ideas anyone?

This was cool...they were cooking calamari


  1. I too worry about loosing my foodieness and my winesnobbery! I think it will just morph into a modified foodieness. As for the sore could always wear bike shorts with padding! Lol!

  2. That's funny about the NSV! I guess it's a good problem to have! That festival looks fun. My love of food has definitely changed since I've had the surgery, which is a good thing.
