    So banded 2 weeks tomorrow and have already been introducing mushies slowly as I am sooooo hungryyyy all the time. So im down this morning to 95.8 kg stoked with that.... so 7.2kgs gone in 3 week....awesome! Loving all the comments about me weight loss to people are noticing already YAY! So have been walking for 30 mins a day just about everyday.....either walking dogs or parking further away from places and walking the distance to get there and thats working.... My diet for yesterday was 1 cup up and go for bekky. snack I had half a Twirl (naughty) but i was studying and people were making me grumpy at uni cause they wouldnt be quite lol. Then for luch I had 1.5 cups of thai green chicken Chewed like Ive never chewed before and took 30 mins to eat it with lots of water. Dinner 1 cup or pureed casserole and amushed up curried egg. I drank 2 long blacks with skim milk and artificial sweetner yesterday and 2 ltrs of water.... still managed to kick bum on the scales....so I guess we dont have to give up most of our delights it just serve proportion...neway Ive still got a long way to go 25.8 kg's..... better then 33kgs i guess.....In regards to my moods and thought patterns still quite negetive but Im keeping myself busy and changing negetive thoughts that pop up into positive ones. Cleaning the house is my major negetive though i dont want to do it.....just over being the only one who cares for it ya know...but im making a chore chart for my kids up today hopefully that will help..... So how is everyone?

    HEY guys... Shoulder pain after 1 week is slowly subsiding...but im finding if I eat too much liquids it inflammes the should pain...wounds are doing well almost healed and my mood has picked up which is awesome. So how am I going with the liquid stage....ok ...... Today is 1 week post op and this time last week i was in surgery . So i have progressed from thin liquids to thick liquids such as thickshakes this week.....anything that can pass througha big wendy's straw I was told i could eat.... So i have just come home and for breakfast today I went out to a cafe and had greek youghurt honey and banana and watermelon mixed in like a smoothie....was good no worries going down however ate too much and pain in shoulder started so i went to have a massage and boom pain gone....mmmmm so then went had lunch and I had a small amount of fish mushed up in mayonaise and went down no worries.....so.......Im going to struggle i think to last another week on thick liquids but i will try and mix things up a bit I guess. Cant wait to start the mushy stage soooo looking foward to a small serving of my favourite mashed potatoes......So at the moment I am 97.3 kgs and my goal is 70kg......so not to much weight to loose.... I started at 103 kgs...so Im well on my way in this journey i think........bring on summer I cant wait to wear a Bikini it has been YEARS!!!!...Neway How is everyone else going so happy to hear all the good stories?????

    So Im now home in Geraldton and starting to get over the whole ordeal lol. I have been really low in mood since the operation but this afternoon im seeming happy. So apart from sleeping for a whole after overdosing on Painstop by accident we managed to find our way home. Today 4 days post op Pain is minimal but the sholder tip pain is annoying. Ao went for a 1 k walk today and going to look at Gyms and exercise programs for me tomorrow. Also have been drinkin 2 ltrs of water a day + 250gr of lite custard + 250ml soup and maybe a long black with a shot of skim milk??? I think ive lost about 500grams since operation. What is everyone else eating post op?

    I had a problem from op dr tong said my surgery was made 100 times more difficult because I had a 10cm of fat between my skin level and stomach. He said was very weird because my Bmi was so low. The next person he operated on had a Bmi of 45 and only 2 cms of fat between skin and stomach. But apart from that the band was placed well. However the port was in a weird angle due to the amount of fat which lead me to moderate pain after surgery. And because I couldn't have morphine because of my comorbidities the stuff they gave me worked ok but On a high amount. Once back in ward I had a some oxycodone worked a treat no pain at all just slight discomfort. So that fixed that problem. Then they brought me some food and water and it wasn't clear fluid just nourishing fluids like custard puréed fruit sorbet and oj. Didn't want to eat it bacause of 2 days clear fluids only so I asked the. Nurse and dr yoni did prescribe nourishing fluids. So u ate it slowly . When he came to visit I asked him and he said there is no need for it to be clear. Also said no barium swallows anymore just X-rays. Seriously people dr young is extremely up to date with all new techniques in this procedure. So happy with his knowledge. Anyway it's 5 in the morning and I'm in sbsoluetly no pain whatsoever. Good luck for tomorrow Celtic. Looks like I will be able to make it to cannington dogs with the kids and hubby tonight after all. That's only if today I feel as good as what I do know.
