Pain in the @ss

Something rather strange is happening. I have lost my seat cushion. Since I carry most of my weight in my stomach, I never really had a fat butt. But since losing 37 pounds (to date) my butt has grown smaller to the extent that it's uncomfortable to sit for long periods of time. Not sure if that is an NSV or not. I now find I have to get up out of my chair at work at least every 30 minutes to walk around or my butt starts to go numb. Maybe I should buy one of those inflatable rings like we sat on after having a baby. Oy!

Enough about my numb bum. Last night I met up with a bunch of people I used to work with at Milestones in downtown Ottawa. We had a freak rain storm pass through just before I left work and traffic was a mess on the highway. What should have taken me 15 minutes took over an hour. But we ended up eating and drinking and talking for over 3 hours. They didn't rush us out of the restaurant as is usually the problem. The meal was delish. I wasn't sure what to order because none of them know about my band. They did give me lots of compliments about my weight loss, although I had to bring it up. Not too shabby, instigating compliments myself.
 
I finally decided to order Miso Glazed Black Cod on a medley of roasted potatoes, Shitake mushrooms and edamame beans in a lemon coconut cream reduction. It was yummy. Although the portion was very small, it suited me just fine. The picture on the menu looked much bigger. I love fish and the surprising thing about eating fish is that I always lose weight the day after which should clue me in to eating a lot more fish!

I think my Wellbutrin is kicking in although I still haven't been back at the gym. We are still working on finishing a section of our basement to put all the weights and the weight machine. My DH is a fanatic about working out. He also loves his bike, running and karate. If only I could get enthusiastic about exercise. My daughter is also going regularly to the gym and working with a trainer and my son is lifting weights and eating healthy. They are putting me to shame so I just have to make them all examples and try to emulate their enthusiasm.

Good luck to all those Go-Chica-Go contestants. I'll be cheering you on so get off your butts and start walking.

I'm right there with ya on the numb and/or painful rump. If I sit too long...the tailbone tells me.

But I've decided it's ok. It makes me get up and go walk around and talk to people. I'll be sad, though, when the time comes and I'm too busy to leave my desk. That's common around here...either slammed with business or not a danged thing to do...

Dinner sounds awesome!

Glad the wellbutrin is kicking in. Sounds like you have a household full of people who are supporting you, directly or indirectly through their actions. That's awesome!

The fish looks yummy! I'm glad you're feeling better, and about the butt, I can't identify there, I have enough to share!

What a fantastic problem to have! If you ever want a little extra cushion, come get some of my big ole fat ass.

Jacquie said...

LOL Sandy...I saw your blog heading and thought you were talking about my ass from last nights spin class!

I am glad you are feeling better! Also, way to go on 37lbs down. If you want any padding back on your ass, I am happy to give some of mine away!

Don't worry, I have a magnet attached to my ass, to attract all lost assess, so they have a place to come home to roost! Glad you are feeling better

I should eat more fish. And yes, butt goes numb too. I just hope I don't develop a seat-ass from working at a desk all day!

Great job!!!!

Yup - seems to be a common problem. I have a pancake butt - that is none whatsoever. If I sit too long on a chair I'm wriggling around like a hyper three year old. But hey, what a problem to have huh? Nice going lol.

Your meal sounds delicious. I've still got quite a bit of padding but feel it in my tailbone if I sit in one position for too long.

Sounds like a great night with your friends tootsie roll. Glad you're felling more like your old self...except of course for your skinny butt...

Michelle said...

Funny that you mention the butt thing cause I felt that way too. Weird huh.

AmeyinIdaho said...

I'm so happy for you that your butt hurts...I think LOL.

Dinner sounds yummy...I think I need to find a recipe for that.
