17st 3lb - 241lbs - BMI 40.1 (just 1lb standing between me and 'Obese Class II'!)
This morning I had my second appointment with the dietitian; she seems pleased with my progress with the mushy to soft foods. Now it's time for me to progress from soft to normal foods, just in time for my first fill next Friday, at which point I have to regress to the purees for a few days, then mushies, then softies, then normal food. Admittedly this will be condensed into the space of a week, rather than the 5-6 weeks it's taken to get from liquids to normal food post-surgery, but it hardly seems worth me getting used to the taste/texture of 'real' food again this week only for it to be snatched away on Friday!
A question for those of you who have had fills - do you have to be nil-by-mouth for a certain length of time prior to the fill? My appointment is 10am - should I skip breakfast and my usual morning coffee, or is it ok to eat and drink as normal?
I'm hoping that the fill plus the return to purees for a few days will kick start the weightloss again. My aim is to be to be "16 stone something" by 19th March as we are having some professional family photos taken that day; it's the day before small boy's 1st birthday and I want to look as "slender" as possible. I've avoided having my photo taken with him as much as I can, which is a shame, so I really want to look my best in these shots - if they're professional perhaps the photographer can airbrush out my lumps and bumps and make me into a yummy mummy!
