It has been a while since I posted. In the meantime, I spent a week over xmas with my family in Melbourne. I didn't focus on my diet while there, but then I didn't eat a whole lot at meal times either. Did do a bit more chocolate and chocky covered nuts that I would have liked!
Got back to Brissy and got a lovely case of gastro, so not much eating then either. Well, gastro is over now (almost) and I'm back to feeling hungry and eating again. Think is, I'm not really eating all that much. I'm filling up on coffee and still getting stuck into the coke zero. Not supposed to I know, but I'm having no side affects that I can see.
Still only have 1 fill despite being banded end of October. I was due to go in end of December, but doc would be on holidays then, so left it. Have booked in and next one will be 18 Feb. I'm not in a huge hurry because I want the weight loss to be permanent. I also want to give my body time to adjust and the skin to shrink back.
Great news is I can now fit into clothes I haven't been able to wear for a very long time. I even fit into some clothes that I bought for "one day" and haven't been able to wear before. Best news is, I got up this morning and tried my size 18 jeans. These jeans have no give in them. They are an 18, end of story. I got these jeans, put them on could just do them up, then stacked on a whole lot of weight. So, never worn them. Well, they now fit. I need to lose about 1 cm off my tum for them to be really comfy, but I could wear them now without them being too uncomfy. Just couldn't do a lot of bending over. This is wonderful news and I feel really excited about it.
