My balloon has been in place nearly three weeks now and so far so good.

My balloon has been in place nearly three weeks now and so far so good.

I weighed myself this morning and I have lost an amazing 10lbs! I can’t tell you how much better I am feeling about myself already and I’ve still got over five months to go plus six months aftercare and support once the balloon has been removed.

I was dreading my holiday… I’m going away with a group of girls to Portugal, all of them skinny minnies! I was wondering how I was going to cope but now, I feel good about myself and stripping down to my bikini isn’t going  to be such a trauma. I can even say that now…. I’m really looking forward to going.

The little bit of sickness that I experienced at the beginning has now completely gone. I am eating normal but healthy food in smaller portions. I do occasionally still feel hungry but Tina ( NOSC Support) has explained why that is and given me some great hints and tips and explained how I need to change my bad eating  habits and learn the difference between hunger and appetite.

Under Tina’s guidance I am trying lots of different foods, some I would never have dreamt of putting near my lips before! To my surprise, I am actually enjoying my new healthy eating regime.

One week away from my hols, I just need to lose another pound or two before I go. I KNOW I can do it! I’m not promising that I won’t have the odd treat or two while I’m away but Tina has even given me some advice about that too.

 

I’ll let you know how it goes….
