Just when I decide that I am now only going to weigh myself once a month, I went to the doctor yesterday ( the same doctor who told me that this lapband wouldnt work for me). Well I informed him that I had my band installed 2 weeks ago, and was pleased to anounce to him that I had lost 14kg. He was very happy with the loss, and is now looking forward to documenting my progress. Then as he got me on the scales. It showed that I have now infact lost 16kg.. Wooohoooo!!! I know all scales are different, give or take a kg or so, but it does make sense that I have lost, as I had another major bowel movement the night before. In any case, I love this band. But now I have to fight temptation to weight myself all the time again. LOL.. it's amazing all the places that have scales when you're out.
In the beginning, I was starting to wonder, why the hell did I get it??? Why not just try to put on my willpower cap, and go back to weight watchers.. But when making the decission for the band, I knew that even if i did get the willpower for a little while, I would only pile it all back on and more. This is for life. A longer healthier life.
Today was the day that i was going to start my exercising, however, with the heavy rain that is falling, it doesnt look like I will get to go out walking.. BUT, I'm not going to use that as an excuse.. I will find some other form of exercise to do inside. I just have to take it easy untill I see Doctor Bowden on Monday.
