One week down, one week to go.
Weird...I posted yesterday but I'm not sure that it went through properly...And now when I try and copy and post it, it's got a pink background. So Weird!! I'm just going to write the whole post again. It said there were zero page views on the post...maybe I'm just being ignored all of a sudden...who knows?!
Anyway, my news was, that I'd had my first weigh in...and am now only 6 days from surgery!! It's so soon! Can't believe it! So, I do weigh in every day (can't help it) but Saturdays are my official weigh in days for now.
Starting Weight: 17st9lbs (247lbs)
Current Weight: 17st1lb (239lbs)
Total Loss: 8lbs!!!!!
Woohoooooooo!! This is the most I've ever lost in a week and I now have just under 100lbs to lose!! The pre-op diet is hard because I feel deprived. It's not that I'm massively hungry all the time, but I just feel like I'm being punished. I think I felt this as a child since it was very rare we had treats and all I saw was everyone around me at school being allowed a sweetie day or dessert that wasn't fruit. But I'll get through it.
This time next week I will be a bandit!!!

I totally sympathize about the deprivation thing- my eating habits were monitored all through childhood which led to me binge eating and eating in secret a lot. I would sleep over at a friends house and when we had candy or cookies I would eat it all.ReplyDelete
I also spent time alone in the afternoons after school and would binge on things before my mom got home. All because everyone was constantly commenting on my eating habits.
It's crazy now how I can take or leave most food. I still have craving or desires for certain foods but it's not compulsive like it used to be. I feel like I can HAVE anything but I CHOOSE what I eat. Even with the few food items that just don't agree or play well with my band for example, french fries. I try to look at it, not as though I cannot have french fries, but that I choose not to put myself through the inevitable discomfort that comes with eating the french fries.
