However by the early evening I was feeling much worse until I ended up dashing to the loo several times, sometimes not knowing which end should face the bowl first (sorry if that's TMI!) Luckily I was only sick twice. Vomiting (properly, not just to get rid of something 'stuck') with the band isn't fun, is it? I'm guessing whatever it is that you are vomiting has to come from the 'bottom' stomach, through the band the wrong way, into the 'top' stomach, and then out. Yuck. I just hope I haven't done any damage to the band. Luckily I have an appointment with my surgeon on Wednesday, so I'll mention it to him.
By about 9pm I was feeling much, much better - well enough to drink a few glasses of water and eat two pieces of Terry's Chocolate Orange... Considering that hubby suffered for a full 24 hours, I think I came off lightly. Now I'm just hoping the small boy doesn't come down with it.
Anyhoozles, the really, really good thing about a short bout of sickness and diarrhoea is that it leads to dehydration which leads to weightloss. (I am saying that all with my tongue firmly in my cheek, in case you're all sitting there thinking 'What? Is she crazy? She thinks being sick and dehydrated is a good thing?') This morning the scales recorded my lowest weight yet:
14st 4lbs - 200lbs - BMI 33.3
(a total loss so far of 62lbs; 32lbs to go!)
Yes, 200lbs, on the nose.
That's just 1lb to go til Onederland.
And 3 days til my one year bandiversary.
Will I make it??????
