Weigh In Day!

Well its Friday and after much trepidation I stepped on the scale-then I went to the loo and came back and did it again-It worked 105.6kg the 1st time and 105.3kg the second !! Yeh! I just can't believe it- 1.1 kg loss.Woohoo! So that's 12.7 kg down-which is close to 28 pounds down since I started preop optifast,-it is about 7.2kg from surgery date 5 1/2 weeks ago.Is it really only that long?? There seems to be so much thats happened since then.

My hubby and Emma ,my daughter are still over in Canada-have been down to Niagara and are currently in Toronto doing some shopping-wanted to know what I wanted as a gift-for once I can't think of anything-I use to be so materialistic-what is happening to me? Could it be that I am more content and don't need stuff to keep me as fulfilled?(don't let my husband read that!) Or could it be that I want an excuse after I have lost more weight to blow the budget then?, I think it's a little of both...

I finally went back to the gym today-after procrastinating all week. It was great,I felt good,nothing pulled or felt different, Having had 6 weeks off I am a little weaker-had to go down on my arm weights quite a bit,my arms are flabbing in the wind,5 months till summer- got to use that as motivation.
I did about 40 minutes of cardio between the bike and the treadmill and although I was tired-It did feel easier being a bit lighter. I used to have a personal trainer there- I did see her today but she didnt even say "Oh My Gosh How much thinner are you???" In fact ever since I gave her up,she's been a little cold towards me-pretty professional eh?

It's truly winter here,blustery and cold ,raining lots-Ugh-I can certainly see why SAD(Seasonal Affective Disorder)is such a big thing . I'm waiting for a break in the rain to take Oscar (our dog) for a walk-he's looking very flat and unhappy.

I had bookclub at my house last night-only 5 out of 7 showed so of course I have lots of nibbles still hanging around- I am keeping them till my son and his girlfriend come home to graze and then they're out of the house-I keep opening the fridge door and looking at the cheeses etc Whoever thinks this band does all the work,is so wrong!

I have got my daughter's WiiFit out and have started weighing on it-You can never weigh on enough scales you know...I might even try the exercises at some point..

Well I think I'm just waffling now, I need to catch up on your blogs, So I hope you all have a great weekend, Bye for now!!
PS-here is my lazy depressed dog, and here is me in March 2011- probably about 3kg lighter than my heaviest weight-That is just the photo that motivates me most!



  1. I love my WiiFit. The scale on it I do not! Ha.

    We got a new TV and currently we do not have the right cord to set it up! So no wii for me!

    Yay on the loss!

  2. Good for you on the loss! Did you find that you gained any when you moved back to solid food? I gained nearly 3 lbs! I've finally gotten most of it back off, but I haven't been able to break below the 264 lb mark since surgery. It's making me crazy. I'm about to go purchase a Wii this weekend I think. I really have wanted one for years and I'm going to use all the money I've saved from less groceries, no booze, etc to go buy one this weekend!

  3. Hey Dani! I love your blog and can't wait to read more!

  4. Hello! Thank you for visiting my blog :) I look forward to reading more about your journey. Keep posting!
