OK so B day came on Tuesday 10th March- last week! I weighed in and lost 4.5 kgs in the 2 weeks on shakes banding weight was 121kg!!

Didnt get operated on untl about 2-30pm. Was a text book procedure apparently..50 mins of skin to skin contact with the surgeon Dr Doug Nicholson..thats after preperation etc. The worst part was the shoulder pain afterwards that is still there a bit 6 days later.

Been staying at mums to help me with the kids which has been awsome as my man works early mornings and some late nights.

Living on liquids: Been eating pumpkin soup, up and go, sustagan, blended baked beans with melted cheese in it..(havent been to the loo in 6 days!) Its ok, cant wait to sink my teeth into something decent tho!
Crushing the tablets is a mongrel..tastes FOWL

Going to the Coffee Club today with some fellow band buddys! Looking forward to meeting some other ppl. Once girl Tara got banded the same day as me and another Zoe got done 2 days later!

Ok so I've been on the dreaded shakes for a week now...I'd say Ive lost about 2kgs so far. Went to see the sports psysiologist yesturday and he wants me to do 4 weeks of 30 min walks per week then he is gona review it.Hes also sending a resistance program in the mail.

I feel ok, Not hungry but still feeling like some different foods and flavours. Have been living on home made avocado dip and carrots...yum my savior! Low joule jelly is also a good one for sweet lovers!! Ive been eating lots of home made vegie and lamb soup. Its a great fillerf if u are hungry at any time of the day as the veggies are "free" and I only eat the lamb chops in it if I havent had my 120-150 grams of meat yet. Sugarfree mints are ok to eat. I dont know why they don't tell u all this when u start the damn diet!! I had to ask about these other things.

Well its only 7 sleeps till my surgery. Had a big talk on the fone with my new friend who is being banded with me next Tues! I think Ive made a life long friend there!!!
