Firstly, thanks so much for all your kind comments yesterday. It means so much that people take the time to read and comment on the drivel that I write! I know that everyone goes through the same thing at the begining of their lapband journey, just didn't think it would happen to me!
I've upped my calories, I had about 1000 yesterday and will be about the same today, have been out all day so my cals are quite low at the moment (its 7pm here) but i'm going to have some of the Easter egg my mil bought me (she doesn't know about the band)
I'm down a pound today, 17st dead. 238 lbs.
I remembered that I didn't say anything about the WLS support group I attended last week. This was a group that was organised by WLS patients and held once a month in a pub. I also arranged to meet a lady I spoke to on a UK forum there. Met Helen, she was lovely, she was being banded in Belgium on the Wednesday after we met and was nervous and needed some reasurance.
Arrived at the pub and found Helen, we then found the support group, there were 2 people there, both bypass patients, they were both very nice. One of them didn't stop talking about her ailments (which were many!) and gave us lots of advice that didn't really apply so it was pretty pointless to be honest, however, it was nice to be out in public talking about the band as only my husband and best friend know about it so apart from on here I don't really talk about it at all. I will go along again I think, apparently there are normally more people there so we'll see who turns up next time!
Am thinking about going back to the gym soon, i'm only just over 2 weeks post op but feel pretty much ok, my gym is called gymophobics, its like a Curves gym I think so its not overly hard. Thought I might give it another week and then go along for a session and see how it goes.
Hope that everyone has a wonderful weekend, thanks again for the support, not sure what I would do without you!!!
