Election excitement and still liking my scales!

There was a general election here in the UK yesterday, have been watching the results come in for the last couple of hours, its looking like a hung parliment with the conservatives having the biggest majority. Not sure how I feel about it, I didn't vote conservative!

Less than a week to my fill! 6 days in fact, I had a letter yesterday with details of my band, I have an AP Large which holds 14cc. I'm suprised at that, thought it would be a 10cc one, can't help but think that my stomach must be huge to have one as big as that and feel a bit unhappy about it, not sure why, i'm sure it doesn't matter at all.

I was banded 6 weeks and 1 day ago.

My scales say 16st 11.5 pounds (235.5) today which is a total loss of 17.5 lbs. I'm feeling like I have now got in to a routine with my eating, i'm really pleased about it but would probably starve without Innocent Veg pots!

Hope everyone has a lovely Friday, I have an awful toothache, maybe thats why i'm not eating so much!


  1. Hi Alison,
    Oh what a mess this election is. I didnt vote Conservative either! Someone must have.
    Well done on the weight loss. I think it would be a good thing to have a larger band because it means you can have more fills and have more room for adjustment.
    I will have to try the innocent veg pots, they sound good.
    Hope the toothache goes. Ouch! Feel for you x

  2. Hello Fiona,
    It really is a mess isn't it, I'm not at all convinced by David Cameron and am less convinced by George Osbourne.
    The veg pots are ok, I tend to stick to the thai one and the dhal one, not as keen on the others, they're on offer at Waitrose at the moment.
    Have just come back from the dentist and have an infection as I thought, need root canal in a couple of weeks.

  3. The size of your band doesn't have anything to do with your body size. It's just a manufacturing difference. The way each company tries to set themselves apart. I'm not sure what the advantage would be to more cc's, maybe the thought is you can get a more controlled and accurate sweet spot the moree cc's you have to work with.

    Nice weight loss. Take care of that tooth!

  4. Glad things are going well. Congrats on your weight loss.
