August Weigh In

I weighed myself this morning for my first day of the month weigh in and I am 114.5 kilos, which is exactly 1 kilo up on last month. I am actually really happy that it wasn't much worse than this because I spent 3 weeks of the month not exercising and eating out for 3 meals a day. In the past I have been known to go away for a weekend and gain 4 kilos, so to only register a 1 kilo gain during my 3 weeks away is amazing.

I didn't think that my lap band was really giving me any restriction while I was away, but perhaps it gave me more restriction than I realised. I was often leaving quite a bit of food on my plate, but that was generally because the food I was eating really wasn't that nice and I couldn't be bothered eating it when it wasn't to my taste. Maybe pre-lap band I would have kept eating it anyway, I can't recall too many times in my life when I have gone out for dinner and left food on my plate, so this thing could be starting to work.

I am feeling good about the general direction the scales are going in, but at the same time I have lost interest in what they say at the moment. I find it hard to celebrate the same old numbers that I have been seeing while going up and down in weight over the past 10 years. I really don't think the scales will excite me at all until I finally get under 100 kilos and stay there.


  1. Don't worry about the scale! Glad to see you're doing good :-)

  2. Glad to hear you're feeling better about things - and for that amount of eating out a 1kg gain is an awesome result!

  3. I am sure you will get to 100 kilos soon!!!

  4. By now I have figured put scales arenot all that important. Often enough I weigh myself at the gym, look at it and think some one is crazy. Either me or the scales. And I know it is NOT me.

    That even happens when it says I LOST weight. These days, I go up and down almost daily. 2 lbs up and down. I mean the scales AER nuts.

    I go with how I feel, and just see what is the result on my weigh in day. (5 out of a 100 my feeling was right, and I am content enough as it is.

    I am glad your lapband adventure is progressing to a healthy you, without discomfort and side effects. To be honest I am too chicken and stubborn to do it.



  5. erm.... that should be "95 out of a 100 my feeling was right, and I am content enough as it is."


Awww thanks so much for the comment!
