A Question??

So I have a question for all my blogging mates.
Can someone please tell me if it is possible to still be in bandster hell two months after surgery?
I have had 2 fills and have a total of 9ml (9cc) in a 14ml (14cc) band, but I am still getting hungry like all the time and I have only lost 1kg in 6 weeks. Yes I admit that I have had such a huge two months (2 x 40th birthdays, 2 x Weddings, 1 week holiday, 2 x weekends away, visitors for almost 2 weeks) and I feel like I haven't had five minutes for myself, my eating habits are crap and I've been drinking WAY too much wine. My exercise is almost nil and I am so bloody tired from lack of sleep.
So tell me is this still bandster hell or just my bloody life getting in the way of progress?

Oh and a shout out to my new follower - Not Your Average Gal. I don't have a blog for her but would love it if you let me know :)

Finally a loss :)

I've just jumped on the scales and I'm so excited, I just have to tell you all. I just registered my first loss in about 4 weeks. I am now 300 gr (.66 pound) below my lowest registered weight, which means I lost about 700 gr (1.5 pounds) this week. Hopefully this means I have passed through my plateau. Yay!!!

Well that's not pleasant...


Just experienced my first stuck and PB. Came home from the movies with the boys (Despicable Me - funny one) and was starving cause I decided not to indulge in popcorn. Decided a dry, cold pork chop left over from dinner was a better option. Boy was I wrong!!! Tasted lovely and thought I chewed it up enough, but NO! after a couple of bites I could feel the burning pain in my chest, then BAM, up it came. Nothing like having a full on puke, but rather a controlled slow foamy vomit. It lasted about 20 minutes and I can still feel a little pain there. I was amazed at how much foam I could produce in such a short amount of time. Definitely not something I wish to repeat in the near future.
On a brighter note, at least I now know my band is working :)

Okay...Time to Confess...

... about just how bad I have been.
I am going in for my second fill tomorrow morning and I am not looking forward to getting on those scales. My last two weeks have undoubltly been two of the most party weeks I've had in years. The first week we had friends and family here for 5 nights for my older brother's 40th Birthday. That equals 5 nights of drinking wine and the occasional bad food choices. I've already posted that I gained that first week.
The day after everyone left I got a really bad tummy bug and was throwing up for about 6 hours and had terrible bowels (sorry TMI) for about 4 days. It helped with losing the extra few hundred grams I gained BUT then we headed off to the lovely Port Douglas for 4 days for my Sister in Law's wedding. Yep back on the drinking and eating train. I had WAY to many cocktails as I have now found they seem to go down quite well. I was a little worried that the vomiting episode had damaged my band as I am now able to eat a bit more than I should be. :(
I'm really not looking forward to fessing up to my indulgences tomorrow, but I have to face my demons and decide to start this next chapter in a better light.
I knew these past two weeks were going to be tough and I admit I have not made good choices. Humph....
