Loosing again....

Well its been 2 weeks since my last post so I thought I would update on how I am going. Well the last time I wrote I had been to see the dietician and the new dr and had 0.5ml put in my band. This unfortunately didnt change a thing. I was still able to eat just about everything.....so this week back I went again for a little more, 0.5mls was put in again and let say ...yippee... I am finally feeling restriction again....not as much as I would like long term but hey its better than last week.
Its just so lovely to be under a dr now that is caring and kind and not at all concerned with how often i come, infact he suggested I come fortnightly, which is great as I always find you really do need a couple of weeks for the swelling to truly go down and for you to know the "real" restriction that you've been given. So last night soup was all I could manage and only half a bowl, which as crazy as it sounds to you was quite exciting to me, due to the fact the night before I had sat down to steak & veg....
Today I have been grazing on not such healthy stuff if I am to be honest but am feeling a real restriction. The scales today said I had lost 1.5kgs so I am happy, finally they are moving down not up!
The only thing I am struggling with at the moment is really bad reflux at night, I know that i eat too late and that I like my late coffee, but I think they are going to have to go, as the past week I have been dropping off to sleep only to be woken in a panic with vommit coming up my nose.....yuk! and thats after taking medication and having a swig of mylanta on the way to bed. So I must remember to mention that on my next visit......well until then.....be safe!

Hi there
your blog is wonderful and you look fabulous... congratulations on your weight loss... I also have a problem with reflux at night but found that if I eat at least 2hrs before bed and elevate my head that it is ok.... Crista
