5.8kg down, 24.2kg to go - 1st weighloss goal crossed off the list!

Tuesday evening

Had my second weigh in yesterday. I had mixed feelings about it and was initially a bit disappointed by the figure of 94.2kg on the scale. I had expected to lose another 3+ kilos this week given I've hardly been eating a thing and my plumbing is working just fine now, after some extreme blockages in the first week post op. Problem was I weighed myself mid week last week and so the drop didn't seem so noticeable. When I put it in my spreadsheet and realised I've lost 5.8kg (13lb) since the surgery I felt a bit better.

The other exciting thing is I've been able to cross off the first of my six weightloss goals! This was incredibly satisfying.

Food consumption is getting easier and I'm starting to get more flavours in my life. I'm pretty tired all the time though which I know is a result of me refusing to drink those horrid protein shakes. Its lucky I'm on three weeks holidays from tafe, otherwise I would struggle to get there to use any real brain power.

Today's food diary is as follows:

1/2 banana smoothie

Morning tea
1 egg fried with a short spray of olive oil spray

Late lunch
1 small avocado with about a tablespoon of canned tuna in spring water mashed with a tiny bit of balsamic vinegar and olive oil.

Afternoon treat
1 Mango Weiss Bar - a divine ice cream bar of 115 calories.

Not going to have any dinner as I'm still full from all the above. Got terrible gas after the tuna/avo combo, but I'm fine now.

So a very lazy day indeed. Watched the finales of Hung Season 2 and Entourage Season 7. Also watched Tom Ford's A Single Man. God, what a beautiful yet sad film. I really enjoyed it though. Colin Firth's performance was absolutely amazing, as was Julianne Moore's. You could feel every bit of the pain Colin Firth's character felt. Its one of those films that stay with you a while after you've finished watching it. It makes an impact on you. That doesn't happen very often these days, with the Hollywood machine pumping out so many vacuous films for the mentally and morally challenged. Don't get me wrong, I don't mind some of those kinds of movies for a laugh, but it was nice change to watch something with a little more soul.

4 stars from me - stylish, thought provoking film
Wednesday morning

When I put Noo to bed last night at 7.30pm I fell asleep so wasn't able to post this entry.

Have just enjoyed a lovely brekky of 1 tblsp Ski De-Lite bush honey with a couple of tblsps of canned diced peaches with a cup of black coffee. Delicious and nutritious!

Noo and I are off to the park today to hang out with my best friend and her two daughters. The sun is shining despite the forecast of rain so it should be a great day.

Hope you all enjoy your day wherever you are.

Congratulations! It's so amazing to be able to cross off those goals. Just imagine when you could ever have lost that amount of weight before in that time frame and even better, this time you know it will stay off for good. The band rocks. Keep up the good work.
