Band update ...Crunching the numbers... and a fill...

So today I went to have a fill.. the last week or so I've noticed that I've had a bit of night hunger and felt a bit snacky...I had another 0.5 added bringing me to 5.5... I had a question for my doctor..

1. Why do I feel like I am not loosing weight

We talked about calories per day.. exercise.. water retention..building muscle.. low salt diets.. weighing daily..TTOTM..and lastly.. recording monthly!!!

It was like a light bulb went on all of a sudden.. I have been so addicted to weighing daily and recording weekly. I do think doing this keeps you honest to your self.. it keeps you on track. BUT I think looking at a months total is really helpful!

So I did and this is what I came up with I was quite surprised! (I have recorded form the 15th of each months to the 15th of the next)

April 10.4kg 22lbs
May 1.7kg 3lbs
June 3.2kg 7lbs
July 1.7kg 3lbs
August 1.9kg 4lbs

So Total Loss since starting the Banding journey 21kg 46lbs...

I am feeling more content about my progress and the future weight loss.. If I had not have had band surgery I would not be loosing anything I'd probably be gaining!!

On the flip side seeing I lost 3.2kg in June is proof I can do it!! I can loose bigger numbers!!

So with my 6 months band anniversary coming up in September I am really looking forward to smashing through the rest of August!!!

20+ kegs in 5 months is awesome! Really inspiring for a newbie.
