Tracey's Gastric Band Journey - Week 26

WebReady - Week 26.jpg

Omg what a week. We've had a death, lots of arguments, and it's the last week of the school holidays so it's been stressful and hectic.

Day 161-167 Post Op

The hunger is still here with a vengeance and although Tracey managed to get into the next stone range, it's been difficult to maintain the weight loss.

I'm constantly hungry but stressed, so I've had so many stuck episodes this week. I've been eating slider foods - absolutely gutted with myself and so disappointed. Phoned HW for fill appointment and there's no appoints until 15th September - that's another 2 weeks away! I'm terrified I will be a stone heavier in 2 weeks. 

It's now Friday morning and I had very little sleep for 2 nights and I've done a lot of thinking. I'm going to get back onto my band wagon and I'm going to be 2 stone down by December. No pressure just positive thinking. I'm going to look for a gym again as the children go back to school over the next week and half, and I've signed up for stoptober (but doing it for September and October). All being well I will reach my target. 

I got into the next stone range down a few weeks ago, and that's when it all started to go wrong. I haven't been that light for years and honestly it scared the hell out of me. It's taken me 2/3 weeks to deal with it and 3lbs have gone on and come off for me to realise this. 

I phoned HW this morning to see if they had any cancellations. Luckily they could fit me in at 12.30 so the start to my positive new start is good ��
