Well today I went for my appointment with Dr Duncombe ( my fill nurse, surgeons offsider), and according to her scales, which I have pretty much based my weigh in's on.. I am now 123.9kg... Woohoo... So I have lost more than I though.. 23kg now.. I was starting to wonder if this is the weight I would always be, and thought that paying $19,000 to lose 20kg was pretty crap.. But now it seems, the merry go round is spinning again, and I'm on it..
I also asked the doc about why I can eat so much of certain foods before getting full, and that I am worried that my band may have a slow leak, and so forth and so on.. She reasured me that I was doing well, and have lost an average of .9kg per week for the last month, and that my body must be coping and working really well with the band, as I can still eat rice, pasta, soft drink, some breads but obviously still have enough restriction to be losing weight.
I guess I just really cant get my head around that fact that i could quite possibly end up slim... I dont mean skinny slim, but I mean slim enough to buy clothes off the rack of any shop that tickles my fancy. I can't picture myself slim, because I have have been..
Ohh, while I think of it... Who is losing their hair?? Who's hair is just not as it used to be before the band..? mine is up to shit... I straightened my hair this morning after washing it, then blowdrying it, and can't believe just how much of my hair was all over the floor and in the bath tub and over my clothes, in the basin, hanging off the straightener.. I've heard of "Lapband Hair", and I think I must have it... Some days it's oily as hell, and I look like some homeless street bum that hasn't washed it for a year, then other days it dry and kind of like straw... Maybe I should get on to the vitamins or something.. I never did take them after being banded, tasted like fermented piss. LOL, well perhaps not that bad, not that I have tried it..but it did look like a very dehydrated persons urine.. Oh YUK!!! anyway, perhaps I should take something to get my hair back on track..
I also asked my doc to put me on the pill, as my Depo shot is due for a rejab, and it doesnt agree with me, gives me 2 week long periods, pimples, headaches, and turnes me into the bitch from hell. I guess I wont be able to use the Depo shot anymore as an excuse for the latter.. Once again, I have had my period for 11 days and its still going strong.. Sucks to be me.
I wanna use some of this newly aquired flexibility as a result from the weightloss. I wanna get jiggy with it.. LOL, and I know hubby feels the same.. the hands creap accross me, then all of a sudden come to a halt when he realises that I got my granny jox on.. LOL.. poor thing.. but poor me more importantly..
