I used to be fat.

In my 12th week


I now weigh 115kg. I jumped up and down on the scales when I saw that number and nearly broke my scales!

That is a total of 16kg down 🙂

I think I am at perfect restriction. I have 3 meals a day with a coffee and one snack. I don’t really get hunger pangs except for about 10pm. Seriously, the hunger pangs hurt at this time. I mostly just go to bed, and by morning I am fine. But sometimes I may have a tea or some fruit.

I am tighter in the mornings. But I am yet to PB. It seems nearly all bloggers have PB’d by this stage, so I don’t know. I have gotten stuck a couple of times, but after taking a couple of deep breaths, I have felt the food make its way down. Usually its because I have a big bite, or the food is dry. But nothing major really. I am dreading the moment that I do PB though! Maybe I won’t? That would be nice!

I usually have a piece of toast with WW margarine or cheese spread at about 7am.

10-11am a skim latte (YUM!)

About midday to 1pm I will have lunch. Today I had a baby sized chicken kebab and only had half of it because I was full.

And then dinner at about 7pm.

9pm is sometimes fruit or tea.

On a bad day where I feel like munching, I will eat little snacks up until dinner and then skip dinner. It seems to be working for me!

But others have said it and I am about to as well, I wish we can band our minds too! Physical hunger is non-existent in my day, but mental hunger? Far out!!! It is still a lot of work. But the band has made my life so much easier.

Right now, I love my band. I am so glad I have it and am very pleased with my progress (regardless of how slow it has been).

My next fill is on the 31st of May and my aim is to be 110kg. I’m not sure what will happen with my restriction between now and then but I am going to keep the appointment for now. If truth be told I’d be quite reluctant to play with my fill because I am so happy with it now. But thigns could definitely change.

By September I would like to be under 100kg. It is realistic and I can’t wait for it. I feel so good right now and can’t imagine feeling better.

I don’t know where I would be now had I not decided to get the band. I would not be smaller, I know that for a fact. I would have continued to gain or maintain at best. But I don’t know how much longer I could have carried on weighing 131kg.

I really want to post some comparison photo’s, especially of my face, but I am reluctant to. Only my family know about my band, and I would like to keep it that way for now. But I take photo’s regularly and I can definitely see the change.

Today, I am happy 🙂
