It has been a while since I have done an update on the weight situation. Last one was in November. Well since then I have lost another 4 kg. I am averaging a kilo a week (2.2 pound for you imperial people), which is very reasonable according to my doctor. He prefers that I would only lose .5kg (1.1pound), but I don't think he wants to argue with me about it.
I went through a terrible patch in the middle of December where I couldn't lose anything, not a kilo. I stayed the same weight for a month, and was terribly disappointed. Nothing I did mattered, I ate better, and I exercised (something I don't do much of). A tiny fill kick started it all again, and I have been a happy camper since.
Christmas was a struggle, I am finding that there are more things I can't eat. Pudding being the main killer on Christmas Day. Oh well, I am sure I will live without it :) Bread is also a killer. I just have to look at it and I am running for the bathroom. Hot chips are fast heading in that direction too. And the worst one of all, is I can't eat pumpkin! I looooooove pumpkin, but unless its mashed in with potato, I can't do it! I am shattered!
With this last 4 kilo's being gone, it saw me leave the Plus Sized section of Myer, and walk into the normal women's section. Ok, so things are still incredibly tight, but give it a few weeks, and it will all be good. It also saw me make $700 on ebay by selling majority of my clothes. I now do not own any black work pants, nor blue pants. I think the only pants I own, besides jeans, are a pair of grey pants I brought off ebay a week before Christmas, just in case. It is such an amazing feeling though, I haven't been in the normal section of a clothing store for a long time! I look forward to the day I can walking into ANY shop and buy something.
It has also got to the point where people comment on my weight loss. I have had several colleagues (none of which know about my operation) comment on how I have lost weight. Which I have to admit, makes me feel good. For so long I have felt down about how I look, but now I am starting to like how I look.
So that is where we are at. Almost half way to my ideal weight. Wow!
