weight loss update
well I survived Christmas dinner, I was really good about portion sizes and ate really slowly. I've only shed another kilo in the last two weeks which has disappointed me a little, especially considering how little I am eating and the added exercise I am doing. I just have to remind myself that this is a long term thing, I need to take it slowly. I can really feel where the 13kg (28.6lbs) have gone from though so that makes me happy, I can really see the weight loss in the mirror if not on the scales.

In two weeks I have a fill, that is when they inject saline into the little pouches around the band to make the opening to your stomach smaller, it will be back onto liquids for a few days while I get used to it. I am mainly eating soups now and I can eat sao's (crackers). I just picked up my chewable calcium today, they aren't too bad and the multi vitamin went down fine.

The most amazing news though is that I just did my blood sugar levels and they were 5.0 two hours after a meal!!! before this operation they would have been around 12.0 I am hoping that my diabetes up and goes.

Alli that is so marvellous and you will find that cos of your initial big loss you are now losing inches so don't be at all disheartened by it. You are doing great and to think that the diabetes will be gone (fingers crossed) is fantastic!
