I'm so stoked. Finally back to my lowest weight again! Was there in August and today I'm back at 77.7kg. Disappointing I couldn't lose 100g more just to be officially my lowest weight ever... to be honest (TMI Alert!) I think I need to do a poo so I think I technically am! hahahaha This week I lost 1kg. It's been soooo long since I've lost 1kg in a week... in fact..not since May! A few things have contributed to this I believe. For one, I didn't put on over 1kg during the weekend as I normally do so it was a good start to the work week. Also, no chocolate this week. OMG! I KNOW! It's truly amazing. The other thing is that I'm back in the mindset of not caring about food. Not looking for food. Not hungry. It's fantastic. But it did mean I didn't even eat dinner on Wednesday night, coz I didn't want to. Then last night I don't know what happened. I had a piece of cheese and then felt uncomfortable for the next couple of hours. Then all of a sudden had to run to the toilet where I vomitted (not PB) what appeared to be the water I finished drinking about 5hrs earlier. And cucumber from lunch came out of my nose. No idea what that all about. Very weird. So no dinner last night either. Anyway I don't care. That's 1.9kg in 2 weeks. Yippedy doo!
I still didn't manage to do 5kms but I did run around Tomato Lake twice which equated to about 3.2kms. Even got attacked by some ducks protecting their little ducklings. They didn't seem to understand my puffing out "I'm just running past little duckies, I'm not going to hurt you!"
Unfortunately we have a big weekend this weekend. In actual fact we don't have a Fri/Sat/Sun without some plans until Christmas!! Going to friend's place for dinner tonight, then friends to our place for dinner Saturday night, then even more friends for Brunch on sunday. Seriously, we have too many friends!
I cancelled this morning's appointment with Bowater as I'm losing weight and I think in a good space bandwise, so made another appointment just before Christmas.
Been working on our wedding invitations. They're going to be sooo cool. We just have to buy some glue and put them together now. When they're done, I'll scan them in here so you guys can have a peak.
Following the Sunday Program's piece about lapband (which I haven't seen but allegedly was quite anti lapband and very one sided), there were a few questions regarding surgery from a few non-surgery people at the We are Slimming forums. I wrote some pretty extensive posts addressing their queries, that might be handy should anyone be reading my blog who is considering surgery (or not!). Check it out here. The danger with biased and one-sided reporting is that people who have not been educated or researched this type of surgery judge those who have based on these reports which can often be hurtful. Everyone on the forum who commented was very respectful though and I hope I managed to educate them a bit further on the topic. I'm by no means trying to convert people to have the surgery, I just want people to understand why it's not an easy decision, nor an easy way to lose weight.
Well that's it from me today,
Have a great weekend!
