Sorry I've not posted for a few days, but I've not really had anything to report. The scales have been stuck on 17st 9lbs (give or take the odd ping-pong) since Sunday and I will admit to being disappointed to say the least. I don't know if not eating enough is the reason for this, or if it's just wishful thinking to allow yourself extra calories so as not to go into 'starvation mode'. I see other bloggers have been going through the same and several seem to have got the scales to start moving again (downwards, of course!) by upping their calorie intake a little. So, on Thursday morning I worked out (approx.) how many calories I've been having, and it's somewhere between 850-1050 a day, depending on how many times I dip into the guacamole and hummus! So, Thurs and Fri I decided to up the calories a little and see what happened. Unfortunately, I'll never know whether the extra calories did the trick as I woke up at 4am today with terrible stomach cramps and spent the next hour and a fair part of today, on the loo (sorry if TMI). So, either as a result of extra calories, or extra time on the loo, or a combination of both I lost 3lbs overnight!
17st 6lb - 244lbs - BMI 40.6 (still morbidly obese, but not for long!)
So, that's a total loss of 18lbs since I started the pre-op diet on 10th January. Not sure whether this latest 3lbs will stay off for long as I suspect a fair portion of it is down to dehydration, but I'll take it for now!
