First Weigh In After Surgery

Today is my first weigh in since surgery and I am now 116.5 kilos! I am really stoked with this and I really didn't expect to lose so much weight in the first week from surgery, but I guess it is not that shocking since I have barely eaten or drunk anything. So here are my stats since I began this whole lap band thing.

14th April 2009- Pre-surgery Diet: 129.7 kilos
22nd May 2009- Lap band surgery day: 120.2 kilos
1st June 2009: 116.5 kilos

Over the last few days I have felt like I could get a lot more down and at my cousin's 30th party on Saturday night I even ate 2 mini meat balls and 2 little bits of camembert cheese, which was extremely naughty of me because I am still supposed to be on liquids. I didn't have a problem eating them at all and I just chewed them to death. Then yesterday I was able to eat half a bowl of mash and gravy at lunch with the gorgeous bloggers Kitty and Cinders. I think I might be getting a bit ahead of myself and I don't want to stretch my band, so I have decided to go back on the optifast shakes for the next week. Just drinking normal liquids is making me feel nauseous from hunger, so I think the shakes will keep me fuller and give my body the nutrients I need.

I also got a lovely surprise in the mail today from Couch Potato from I'd Rather Be Sitting On The Couch (that blog title cracks me up every time!). She has lost a crap load of weight this year and was kind enough to send me some clothes that she has shrunk out of, and lucky for me, she has great taste! I just wish she lived in Melbourne so we could go out for some drinks!

  5. I'm so pleased they fit. I get sad when I'm too small for clothes that I liked, so it's great that they've gone to a good home......though the way you are going, they might not fit for very long.

    I just wish she lived in Melbourne so we could go out for some drinks!Next time we're in the same place, there will be cocktails!
