Today I was on a radio show talking about how my lap band went wrong and why I am still the same weight as I was when I was banded. There was lots of back story too, and I was on for 45 minutes. For the entire time I was wanting to evacuate myself. I was terrified. When I finished and got in the car I thought I was going to have a heart attack!!
Anyway, its very funny listening to yourself on the radio and even the presenter didnt sound the same so its actually comforting to know that we dont sound that random in real life! I did enjoy it immensley and I am very happy with my performance. I didnt fluff up and I didnt make an idiot of myself. It was the truth and that was it. Its was my story.
There was a guy who called in from Obesity UK who was very kind and stuff, but obviously didnt quite get what I was saying.
Its a long running topic for me whereby I stay under my calorie intake and dont lose weight... I said my diet is never more than 2000 cals. i.e. I often eat a lot less but thats the maximum and he said "2000 cals in the absolute maximum a lady should eat" so therefore that was why I wasnt losing weight...
surely anyone on earth knows that if a lady eats 2000 cals a day she is NOT GOING TO GET FAT.
if a FAT LADY eats 2000 cals a day she WILL lose weight.
The physics must be that a person of 18 stone (like me) must eat about 3400 cals a day to maintain their weight. a 12 stone woman must eat 2000 calories a day to maintain her weight. simples.
so what I MEANT was WHY WASNT I LOSING WEIGHT!!! LOLOLOL
You cant stay fat and eat 2000 cals. Its not possible... BUT I DO!!!!!!!!!!!!
oh the frustration.
Anyway, I didnt get the chance to respond to that on the show because I had already been talking for 40 minutes and it was about to end! Plus I was terrified remember! HAHA
But I think anyone listening would have got it.
I am going to write a series of posts as theres been a lot going on in my life over the last few months so be sure to read them all!
