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.
