Well that wasnt very nice...

As today was my first day of pre-op diet I thought I better go in to the clinics office and get myself weighed (I can walk past there during my lunchtime walk) and what do you know...I have actually put on weight!

I kid you not...I went up to 136.4, I gained 2 kilo's in the last two months. Bahhh

I mean mentally I know it was because my life has been in up heaveal for months. But I still thought I had held off gaining any weight.

I know for three weeks there I ate take away's for about two meals a day (my Dad was dying so daily visits were quite long). But then I was pretty good the last two weeks...

Well until last night...my last meal was also my cousins 39th. She had a cake party to celibrate,  so I had banana, cheesecake, rum balls, choc brownies, and a lovely lovely decorated cake from her sis (amazing cake maker!).

So I just went out to drop hubby off at a concert and thought,  "I need to buy a new digital scale", cos the one we have is hard to tell what it is sitting on numbers wise.

I think it is pretty close to the dr's as with jeans on and a meal eaten, I was 136.7, roll on surgery!

Thank you to all my new followers and for their lovely comments! I defintely look forward to the challenges and TRIUMPHS ahead.

Now if I could just stop looking in the fridge...

This is just the start and we all have to start somewhere.
You will loose lots on your pre-op, good luck with it.

Hang in there - Optifast sucks!!

But honestly it gets a whole lot easier the second week.

And that 2 kilo's you gained? (hey - that's nothing!!! especially with everything you had on your plate!) they will be gone really quickly during the pre-op stage!!

This is it - you're on your way :-)

Hi Mo! Congrats on your upcoming surgery :) It sounds like you've had some pretty rough times to deal with while trying to prepare for your journey. I hope things are getting better for you! Don't beat yourself up over 2 kilos! Sounds like you were doing the best you could considering the circumstances. I've been there and it's hard...
