Fill out

Well my 6pm appointment was deffered back to the original 9.30am one this morning. That was unfortunate coz last night was THE worst night EVER. Coughing and spluttering does not a peaceful night's sleep make.

Anyway, Watson took out .5mls which was more than I wanted out but he wanted to be safe and said I'm probably very inflamed from the reflux and PBing. I also have to take Pariet for the next week too. He was stoked with my results, having not seen him for over 6 months. I told him I wanted to get to 75kg for the wedding and he reckons I'll be too thin!!! So not true. When I look at all my flab I think there's way more than 10kgs of excess fat there!

Also turns out that his receptionist is also getting married at Watershed Winery, a few weeks before us! Classic.

Did I say that my sister got engaged on the weekend? Well I checked out the ring on her finger last night (which I helped choose) and it looks sensational! Sooo happy and excited for them.

  • Reaching lowest weight since primary school

  • Losing over 35kgs from lapband.

  • 6 nights in Bali with girl friends

  • only spending about $300 in 6 nights in Bali

  • not putting on weight in Bali

  • going to the gym at the hotel once

  • Sister and her boyfriend got engaged on Sunday

  • Read Twilight then watched movie. Book is better

  • 2 weeks off work

  • Size 14 jeans fit (Target brand but still!)

  • Ordered wedding dress

  • Bob & Tiff on The Biggest Loser. Sensational!

  • My hairdresser has agreed to come to Margaret River to do my hair for the wedding

  • Dockers finally won a game

  • Made best lasagne ever and did not PB it.


  • Night reflux and waking up thinking I'm choking to death

  • Daily PB's

  • Quads aching for 4 days after doing Hinges in pilates on Thursday

  • Being back at work after 2 weeks off!

Luckily they've managed to squeeze me in between surgeries tomorrow so I can see about getting some fill removed and hopefully enjoy some food going down!  I don't know what has caused this sudden PBing and reflux, very weird considering I haven't had fill put in since November. Also, I'm enjoying the weight loss (of course) and I'm worried with the extra fluid out that that will stop. But I have decided that I would rather enjoy eating rather than being worried about where the nearest loo is and violently PBing for the next 6 hours.

Anyhoo, good to be back in the blogersphere. Looking forward to catching up on everyone's blogs.


Update: Just had a call from Doc Watson's rooms and they can fit me in tonight at 6pm - yay! No more night reflux!

Bye bye Obese me

Bit of a late update on last week, but the major news is: I'm no longer OBESE! Nope, just plain old overweight now! haha. Just missed out on reaching 35kgs lost since banding too with a major weight loss of 2.2kgs last week. Thank you TTOM! I'm now the lightest I've been since probably primary school!  The job this week will be to not put on as I tend to do the week after. As is usual for TTOM, I struggled badly with food, PBing most days which sucked, but today I can feel the restriction reducing thank goodness. 

We went to Margaret River overnight on Saturday to meet with the cake guy and the celebrant. Cake guy was disappointing given he knew we were coming but didn't have anything prepared and then gave us a sermon on unconditional love which was frustrating. Celebrant was great though, we're really happy with her. Had another fab lunch at Watershed and showed my mum where the wedding would be.

One week to go till we're off to Bali on a girls trip. One of the girl's has just cancelled for personal issues and I was supposed to be sharing with her. She wants me to go into a triple now which means a pull out bed which I'm not that keen on - I'm a bit old for pullout beds you know! I think if you cancel at this stage you should just take the loss. I know it's a bit selfish but I'm a bit pissed off that she's left it this late to cancel when really she was in the same situation when the trip was booked six months ago.

Anyhoo, best be off back to work!

Leave me a comment! I love 'em!

Em :)

What's my personality type?

Stole this idea from Cat using Typealyzer. It allegedly reads through your blog and determines what personality you are. Here are my results:

ESFP - The Performers

The entertaining and friendly type. They are especially attuned to pleasure and beauty and like to fill their surroundings with soft fabrics, bright colors and sweet smells. They live in the present moment and don´t like to plan ahead - they are always in risk of exhausting themselves.

The enjoy work that makes them able to help other people in a concrete and visible way. They tend to avoid conflicts and rarely initiate confrontation - qualities that can make it hard for them in management positions.

Couldn't work out how to copy and paste the brain activity diagram it puts up but I'm somewhere between Sensing, Feeling and Thinking. Whatever that means!

Still a Performer in the LoveTypealyzer:

ESFP - The Performers

They live for the moment and is usually a lot of fun to date.They tend to dislike theory and complexities and rather enjoy beeing in the moment with other people making sure that everyone enjoys themselves. As partners they are very affectionate, but might be unaware of the direction the relationship is heading. Sexually they are very sensual and enjoys the experience with all five senses.
Best matches: ISTJ or ISFJ

Well there ya go.  A bit of wednesday fun!
