an update

Well I thought I would come on and give you an update, not that there is alot to update but hey there is a little :)

I am moving down ever so slowly I am now at 105.5kgs which is fine, I even pleased myself today when I called and cancelled my next appt. I am finding that my restriction at the moment is good, not as much as I think I would like, but I keep telling myself to take it slow this time.... I can eat most things with the exception of bread, the difference I am still finding is that I tend to be able to eat for a few minutes fine and then feel discomfort whereas before I would feel discomfort whilst eating....

But thats about it.....till next time

Reflux Fixed!

Oh and I forgot to mention to those of you who have messaged me about Reflux,

I have found a way to eliminate this completley ...... My Dr had said well you just cant eat after 7pm, which I was really struggling with as if the kids have afternoon activities and if Ben gets work after hours we often dont eat until quite late. So everynight as much as I had good intentions it just didnt happen and I would end up choking as soon as I went to bed.

Then I had a thought that I could just have refux tablets in the evening and maybe that would help.....WRONG! It didnt do a with much frustration I can tell you this is the solution I came up with....

Dont eat ANYTHING after 8pm, (I had to make it 8 as 7 just wasnt do-able) and then sip on boiling water for the evening....I know sounds boring doesnt it, and it has taken some real will power not to want that evening snack but the boiling water somehow tricks my mind into thinking i am having that evening coffee......I know weird! But hey if it works dont knock it.

Since doing this I am no longer waking choking on vommit......and we all know how revolting that is!

no to chicken but yes to sandwiches ?????

Well since I last posted I have been back to see the always beautiful Dr Fill, he gave me 0.3mls which initially I was thinking...oh thank goodness I didnt get the 0.5mls as I was really restricted to liquids only on the first few days, but now having that amount for over a week I am feeling thankful I have another appt on friday as I my appetite is back, and although I struggle on somethings such as chicken or pasta, I can still quite easily get down a sandwich???? Go figure!!!!

So my weight is 106 which is great that it is moving in the right direction, but seems to have stuck, so hopefully after friday I will be able to reach that sweet spot and not need to go back for some months....

Anyway bandsters, till next time...
