So I woke up this morning instantly feeling better. I decided to jump on the scales to see what was happening with my weight. I was pleasantly surprised to see my weight was 5kg less than when I weighed in at Dr Layani’s office. Now admittedly they are different scales, and scales can vary, but […]

Ok, the 2nd day was really not much fun. Not helped by the fact that it was Friday and Friday is usually our ‘treat’ night where we get home, either buy or make something a little bit naughty and sit back and relax and watch some tv or dvds. I was really hungry all day […]

So I went for my appointment with the nurse today and it all went well. I made my appointments for the psychologist (2 hours!) and the surgeon and they tentatively booked me in for surgery on the 11th October. Oh my God…I can’t believe that’s less than a month away.

Why do I do it? Tonight on the way home from work I stopped off at Hungry Jacks and not only ordered a large Whopper with cheese meal, but a cheesburger to eat on the way home and a caramel sundae. As well as a 150g block of Cadbury chocolate. Did I enjoy one bite […]
