Bloody hell this last couple of months has flown past!!! Where has it gone? Well, I had better update you on the band stuff…..
I went to Dr Dreamy on 1st May. Karen, my sister, came with me. The hour drive to Launceston from her place was hilarious…..I don’t know how I didn’t crash from laughing so much!! We had the best trip singing old rock n roll songs at the top of our lungs. It was a bit of a miserable day weather wise…… but not in my car!! We sat in Dr Dreamy’s waiting room and just laughed…….. at nothing!!!! I think a couple of the ladies waiting were wondering what we had been smoking!
Then I go in. Karen comes in with me. She has been with me before and Dr Dreamy knows she is a nurse….so they have that special “medical” understanding thing going on:) We have a chat and a few laughs with Dr Dreamy and then down to business. I STILL weigh 93kgs. I have been gaining and losing the same kilo for ages now. He checks my hernia, which by the way has been not as painful lately. He seems to think that has popped back in because he can’t feel it anymore . Then he puts another .2ml in. So now I am sitting on 6.4mls in a 10ml band. So, it didn’t hurt one bit…..as usual…..went out and sculled the water….no problem as usual….and off we went!!………………to LUNCH!!!!! lol lol
Some wonderful girls started up a Facebook group for Tasmanian Lapbanders. They have meet ups and do lunch around the state and I think they have nearly 90 members now. So, this day they happened to have a luncheon in Launceston!! So we headed for the lunch to meet some of the girls. It was a fantastic lunch and I just loved meeting ladies I have so far only chatted to on facebook. A fabulous day!! It is so wonderful to talk to people that are going through the same thing. A couple of them have lost over 50kilos…..what an inspiration they were!! I really didn’t notice the extra fill…….I had pumpkin soup followed by salmon patties and then we had DESSERT!!! lol lol However, I am feeling more restriction now. For instance – I cooked Ricky a nice steak for his lunch today before he headed off to work. I brought myself a Lean Cusine vegetable canneloni…I could only eat one of the two canneloni roll thingies and had the 2nd one for my tea tonight. Before I could have eaten the both of them.
I have had a bit of a rough trot with people dying lately also. Yesterday we travelled out to the funeral of an extremely close friend and it was so emotionally tiring!! I feel tired tonight actually. I also had the death and funeral of an old police workmate that knocked me about a bit also. Not that we had been that close in recent years….but she had been my mentor when I first joined the force and I had had many, many funny times with her and some great memories….she was only 52. Poor Ricky was pall bearer for both funerals!! The most he has ever worn his suit!! lol lol
So, as you can see I have had quite a bit going on. Things are still ticking along at the lolly shop with my love/hate relationship there. I try to walk at least once a day even though the winter weather is starting to arrive in force. So, I will leave you with a couple of photos and hope you are all well and happy!! 🙂
Oh yeah!!!! We had dessert 🙂 This is my new best friend Lisa….you know how you just know you are going to like someone when you chat online. You feel like you have known them all your life when you meet in person??…well it was like that with Lisa …She is a terribly wicked person 🙂
Here’s Karen ready to roll……. and speaking of rolls…… are they because I like to be prepared or is it just that my sister gives me the shits??!! 🙂 Nahhhh…..when you live in the wilderness you have to grab the specials when you see them!! I removed them before setting off 🙂
