I'm in a much better place now after a couple of nights sleep without waking up every couple of hours choking and coughing. I went to see Dr Bowater on Wednesday morning. He admitted that they really have no idea when restriction just reappears for no apparent reason but that it was good that I came in to have it fixed rather than struggle on. He removed 0.5ml (more than I wanted) and said that if within 7 days I feel like I'm slipping into the "yellow zone" where I'm eating too much, getting too hungry then I should go back and he'll put a touch back in. He also said my results were pretty awesome, with my graph showing a steady decline. He asked me what my goal was, to which I replied: 72kgs and he said "way too low, your goal should be 77kgs". Screw that, I've seen myself in the mirror and I have way more than 1.5kgs of fat to lose!
He also went through the 7 rules he has found that the most successful bandits stick to:
1. No breakfast. He asked if I drank hot drinks which I said no, so he said I should have a cup of warm water early then again at 10am
2. Light lunch - eg tin tuna in olive oil
3. Nil in afternoon - no snacking!
4. Healthy dinner - eg fish & vegies
5. Nil in evening
6. 200 mins of movement outside work per week
7. Alcohol - he asked how much I drank which I said usually a couple glasses wine on the weekend which he said was fine
Haven't tried the warm water thing yet, seems a bit gross to me! I think I already do No's 2, 4 and 6 for the most part but not sure about the no snacking!!!
GB and I finished our Level 1 dancing course this week and have joined up for Level 2. I have a lot of fun and I even think GB enjoys it (even if he won't admit it!).
Pissed that Julie made it to the Masterchef final when she's been skating in the bottom 3 of contestants the entire show! Don't get me wrong, she seems like a lovely person, but can't seem to handle pressure well and her food is nowhere near the level of others who have left. Vent over.
Anyway best get back to work and dealing with complaining annoying bastards all day. Thank god the weekend is nearly here!
PS - Have put a weight graph page into my blog. Link at the top amongst the other pages FYI

I'm so so so tired and I have had a headache for 2 days. I'm not in a good place right now.
On the positive side, it's Westie's birthday today - she turned 3! Or 21 in dog years! Here's some pics of her opening her pressies today.

Exercise wise this week - was alright, but nothing spectacular. Went to gym on Monday for 30mins, dancing Tuesday night, Pilates Wednesday & gym, Pilates Thursday. My quads are killing me from hinges at pilates on Wednesday.
As I mentioned, I went to the doc on Monday and had my iron tested. I'm always borderline anaemic and have been feeling tired of late. But it all came back in normal ranges so that's good.
Bloody GB, hasn't exercised in weeks (since his dental surgery), has been eating up a bit of a storm and lost 1.1kg! He's in the 83kgs range now! Below his goal which he's supposed to be maintaining. He was having some awful PBing issues since the surgery so ended up seeing Bowater earlier this week and had .25ml removed from his band.
Anyhoo, hope everyone else is going well!

Will give it a couple days and see if everything goes back to normal. Fingers crossed.

Even though my weightloss has slowed down significantly I don't want any more fill. I like that I only PB rarely now and can eat most things but still feel full after a cup or so. I still get very restricted at TTOM and wouldn't want that any worse than it's been. I know I could do more exercise and drink more water and that's my plan to get the last 7-8kgs off.
So anyway, congratulations to Myf who is getting married today . WOO HOOOOOOO!!!!

This first one was from about 4 weeks ago...
And here's one from the engagement party in the Wayne Cooper dress - not very clear though sorry. Sisters' faces have been blurred in case they oppose to being on my blog. I sincerely hate my big fat arms. Grrrrr
