Places to go; Things to see

She's up and she's down

Yes it has been a while, sorry about that. I really do not know what is wrong with me at the moment... well actually, I have an idea.


And I really have no one to blame but myself.

I know I need a fill, but I can't tell why it is all of a sudden. I had really good restriction not too long ago and now it feels like I can eat every 1 & 1/2 hours. I can still only eat smallish amounts (although they are bigger than what they were) and I still have to chew properly. Looking back it is like the restriction I had after my second fill when I had about 8ml in altogether. So what I want to know is; what happened to the 0.5ml that was supposed to be in there?

Is it the heat? That is really the only external factor that I can think of.

Or is it just something that happens occasionally?

I called my surgeon for a fill appointment on Tuesday morning and I could either be there in 30 minutes or wait until 20 January 2011. I couldn't be there in 30 minutes :(  For one thing I was at work and for another I would have to have taken a taxi and that would have been about $40.00 each way. I didn't have that to spare so close to Christmas.

So I have to wait until Thursday 20th January. The reason for the long delay is that like most selective surgery & specialist doctors in Australia, they close up shop for at least a few weeks over the Christmas summer time. I think his receptionist said they were back on Monday 17th January, so it is in the first week that they are back.

Until then I just have to be strong and remember what I tell everyone else: Bandster Hell is something we all go through and it will come to an end. I just need to stick to my portion sizes and stay away for too much slider foods.

I also need to keep up my exercise, I have been a little slack with that this week too, mostly because I have felt a little run down, it is just the hot weather, it takes me a little time to get used to it.

But in other exercise related information: LOOK WHAT I JUST GOT:o)

My new black Wii and if you look real close a little Eiffel Tower
Isn't it great!!! It is a Christmas present, but it is my Mum and my present to ourselves, so we didn't wait to open it :P I spent twenty minutes doing the WiiSports and I worked up the biggest sweat (yes it was partly the heat) but I could really feel it!
So I am still here, up and down on all fronts: scales, emotions and food wise :) I promise to do better on my commenting ladies and gents, I am a little behind and so will try to catch up. Have a great weekend!! TGIF


  1. Sounds like you are going to have alot of fun with your Wii - I have one - don't use it as much as when I got it a couple of years ago but when I do use it, I always have lots of fun especially when there are 3 or 4 of us playing - my favourite is the Bowling :)

  2. Hang in there, Sam! Knocking right on the door of the 25's - go you! January 20 will be here in no time, but maybe it might be worth a call back after the new year just in case they have a cancellation and can squeeze you in earlier.
