Awful/Great = Hmmm

I am feeling really odd. I feel terrible about my weight, but Great about the new possibilities.

I went to WLS clinic on Sunday en-route to the hospital where my Dad is.

I weighed in at 16 stone 8 pounds. That's just gruesome, but basically I have put on a stone since my un-fill. It could have been a hell of a lot worse!

I told her all about how I was feeling - very unrestricted, hungry etc. I told her how I had committed to my weight loss again by ordering a months supply of food from Diet Chef. They provide you with breakfast, lunch, snack and dinner of wholesome low Gi food for £190 a month. Its not necessary to keep it in the fridge or freezer - you just store it in the cupboard and it should be 1200 cals a day if you stick to it. It turns out its actually 1000 cals a day, but they allow you some fresh fruit and veg to bulk it all up.

I told her how I thought that I needed a big whack this time because I had not noticed any difference after any of my subsequent fill and that frankly I am running out of cash (not just for the fills, but for petrol to poxy London and back and the week off work recuperation!)

She has given me 0.7mls this time. this takes me to 7mls total in my band which is half a ml more than I had in there before she removed 1ml on August 10th. So it really seems like it was Malta that messed my restriction up. It just got so aggravated that it was a vicious cycle.

Anyway, so far so good. I never do that whole liquids thing because I just can't face it, and I want to know quickly whether or not I have restriction. Well, when I compare how I felt on my new Diet Chef meals on Friday and Saturday to how I felt yesterday and today, there is a big difference. I am FULL! I was literally starving hungry on the other days, but I haven't had a single hunger pang today.

So hopefully everything will start to get back on track.



  1. So glad you're feeling less hungry now.. let the weight loss begin!!

  2. Yay Bunny-I hope this one sticks. Mine has been hell! I have nothing..Im getting impatient to get this show on the road instead of getting a wimpy fill and then immediately having to make an appointment to get another. The fills hurt! and my surgeon is not to skilled with the enormous needle!

    Here is wishing you luck! and for goodness sake at least come on and give us a note that your dad is doing ok. I was worried things had gone bad and that is why you were away so long!!
