Today is bragging day. You may sit there and read this in absolute wonder of my awesomeness!!

I have officially lost 15.4kg !! AND............

I went shopping yesterday and tried on a Size 20 top (I haven't fitted into a size 20 since I was 20!) and YES it fitted - OMG I was so stoked I bought it.

That's all for now.

The Fill

I'm home......tail between my legs and all ! I should have read more about these fills before actually having one. I had no idea ! And to sum it up I said to the Doc - "will you hurry up -you realise this is as uncomfortable as a pap smear!" of course he said - "Oh I wouldn't know!.....once he found the port it was over in seconds but he found it a couple of times but the needle slipped off it! That sound was different...anyway it's all over now and I now have an extra ..........wait for it .........ONE ML in my band making it a total of 4ml in a 10ml band. I now know what restriction means again and I'm not liking it at all (and the bloody wind is back).

And to top things off we had a blow out on the way home. I still have a few more days of hols - our local show is on this weekend and I have a very excited daughter just busting to go. Then it's back to work Monday which will be great as I'm so out of routine with my eating and drinking....not that I can eat much at present but hey I'm sure that'll improve.

Anyway - thanks for all the great comments re the photos. On to the next 10kg....

APRIL 2008

It's Friday

I can't believe it's Friday already! I've had a week off work and it really feels like a month - how weird am I? I have not stopped this week and am going to make sure next week is a little slower.

Caitlin & I are going to Maitland on Sunday, then I go to Doc for the big fill on Monday and to see the dietician. I'm looking forward to it now as the weight loss has slowed nearly to a stop and I"m feeling hungry more often.

It will be great to see mum & dad. Dad has been having a few funny turns and it turns out after lots of tests that it's caffiene induced! OMG........and you know what caused the last little turn........CHOCOLATE!!! He doesnt have any vices in life.....doesn't drink, doesn't smoke but loves the occasional chocolate - only problem is he will eat a block at a time!!! Glad that was all that was wrong with him and mum has him on rations now - poor dad!

Anyway - hope you all have a great weekend.

Good stuff

The big trip to the Cook Islands is paid for so it looks like we are on our way! Now I have a target to lose more weight for. It would be nice to have another 10kg off by then. Pity I can't get a nice big boat there or something as I really hate flying! Now we have to gain the respite for Jess while we are away. If the wheel falls off that wagon then we are up s**t creek. It's bloody hard having to rely on so many factors but that's a part of having a person in your family who can't look after themselves.

I've had a few people comment on my weight loss that haven't seen me for a while which is great. And the jeans I bought off ebay are all too big!!! How sad - NOT. I'll have to resell them though - nice jeans too!

Mountains and more.....

Well we had a great weekend away at Blue Mountains. Did lots, walked lots and put on half a kilo! Oh my god - nearly died this morning but then assessed what we ate and I am eating a bit more than usual and goddamm those homemade chocolates from the chocolate factory! I had about 6 of them and boy were they lovely. (Can't say I'd recommend going back there though as the service was crap). Anyway - on to another week of good eating habits. I go to doctor next Monday and dare say I'll have a little fill.

I did balk at one of the walks (my thoughts were 'gee will I walk from the Skyway back to Echo Point uphill etc or drive the car back' as "someone" had to do it and have a nana nap?? - guess which one I picked.....not the right one of course but I had a great sleep and after the week I've had it was worth it! I also received a phone call from the hubby and the kid "come and get me mum I can't walk any further!!!" so they didn't make it anyway - ha!

To all my lovely friends who leave messages - thank you.

To the Harpers who are going through hard times especially George - Yep one day at time. Love you all. Loved Conner's comment on the skin! Will pass it on to she who admires from afar.

Chasing my tail..

Well what a busy few days I've had! Nothing to do with weight loss and I will get to that.

Caitlin has been in hospital with a "virus" which compounded into asthma. She's been one sick little girl and is out now and has the rest of the week off. So John & I are juggling work and home at present. Hence the lack of me blogging! I'm not great at sleep deprivation and am functioning at present on 2 cylinders but we will get there.

On the weight loss front my measurements came in at a loss of 67cm!!! I'll put them in when I can. And I've finally hit the 14kg mark. So gotta be happy with that. I saw my GP today and she's so impressed she said she'd like to refer prospective banders to me for some positive input which was nice.

Anyway - need sleep but I'm at work so I'd better get back.

More progress

Well I weighed in 13.5kg lighter which is great. Only one pair of jeans slightly fit (they are baggy around the legs and stomach but they are elastic waisted so I can get away with wearing them a bit longer!). My shirts are starting to move around when I walk so much that I have to hang on to them! Wow - how good is that.

I went on ebay today and have bids on jeans 2 sizes smaller! I am a legend !

Comment of the day: "Gee Kath you really are short. I never noticed until you lost weight" - (I didnt take offense Kirrilly it was funny!) - so I gather I was as round as I was tall before. At least now I take up less room!
