please come say Hi ! Hummingbird's flight

Postby hummingbird01 » Sat Feb 18, 2012 6:22 pm

Hello- I actually started a thread in Curvaceous & Courageous... But it's so SO quiet there I thought I'd pop over here where there seems to be more signs of life!
Have had a good loss this week of 2.0 kgs - and am still bloaty and having PMS. So it feels like the discipline is paying off.
I have nearly, almost lost 5 kgs! yay...I know i will notice it when i get to 10. It's weird..when i decide to lose weight I suddenly become so aware of how big/spongy/wobbly I am... as i lose I actually feel bigger before feeling smaller! Am especially sick of all my clothes ( size 16-18). Am not letting myself buy anything new till 10 kgs are gone!
Hope its a good week for all! :)

Hi Hummingbird!

Well done with the loss so far! It is hard to see the loss yourself as you look in the mirror each and every day. You will definitely notice results when you least expect it. For me, it was the fact that my undies were really baggy :lol:

Now I am sitting here at work wearing a dress that is 2 sizes too big and gapes at the back - but that's nothing a jacket can't cover!

Keep up the amazing work. You will get there in no time!
Start Weight: 103kgs
Current weight: 91.3kgs
Loss so far: 11.7kgs
Interim goal: 85kgs by May 2012
Final goal: 65kgs by January 2013

Aut inveniam viam aut faciam - I shall either find a way or make one!

am having nasty PMS and water retention- but still have had a loss.

Wow, did you have the full surgery - not keyhole?? I had to have full surgery years ago as I had stones stuck in my bile duct as well and was jaundice from it... I had an 8 week old baby and had to travel to another place for the op, my mum was babysitting, but the day after I had surgery she ended up in hospital so I had to go home to look after my son... it was hard and I was very sore for quite a while!! Take it very easy and make sure you recover fully before doing too much.

Take Care

Good morning it's monday :)
Hi sugarandspice... No luckily I only had the keyhole procedure. I just discovered i am a big sook when it comes to all things surgical! I was up and about for short periods of time in the first few days, but now a week has passed i realise i was pretty out-of-it! Poor you having to have the full /open surgery- i understand it is very painful!
Anyhow- after a week of lying about and drinking cups of tea, i expected a gain. But phew- I have managed a tiny drop- down to 89 kgs today.
a couple more kilos and I'll hit the coveted 10 kilo mark. I resigned from my job last week so i can seek work closer to home- have another interview today.i rely on my work as a preschool teacher to keep me moving all day- can't be sitting around when trying to lose weight!!

Hi hummingbird,

sorry to hear about your surgery, i was in hosp. the other night with suspected gallstones, turned out to most likely be gastritis, but have to have an unltrasound on friday to confirm.

Take your time recovering and good luck with your job hunt!!!

just dropping in to say Hi -and thanks for the comments :)
I can relate sugar and spice- i am also a very poor patient!
skinny- i hope you don't have gallstones- its a nasty experience- i have experienced drug free childbirth twice ( ouch ! ) - but the stones were WAY worse!
apparently gallstones a quite common-but not always diet/weight related.
take care !
