Catching Up

4 Jan

I’ve been busy!

Well kind of, for me anyway!

Clare (who should have her blog up soon!) has been a godsend for me! We talk constantly about WLS and whats going on, so we don’t have to bother our friends and family who don’t get it. She has been so helpful.

Thanks to her I’m now on Byetta and it has made a huge difference in my eating, I lost 6kg (13lbs) in my first month, which was wonderful as I was stuck for a while, although I am constantly feeling sick or actually am sick, but I can cope with that if it means I stop eating.

In regards to surgery, I emailed Nia before Christmas and she said that all surgeries had been cancelled even for the people who had been on the Liver Shrinking Diet for three weeks and were hoping the managers would have some reassurance in the New Year for them, so I’m guessing its pushed back more and more now.

I got hold of a LSD thanks to Clare, it’s a two week one, so I doubt very much it would be the same as mine, but decided to give it a go and try a day on it. Ugh it was horrible I was so hungry and feeling even more ill, then I woke up with a huge headache the next day because of no caffeine or sugar, it’s made me very afraid of my LSD and whats going to happen. I was panicking wondering if I can do it, it’s such a scary thing to do, nothing will be the same again. Clare helped with making me try to remember why I’m doing it and I guess without a date or anything to focus on it makes it harder. Plus right now, I’m not in the frame of mind where I can see past the enjoyment food brings me, right now it’s still all I have, my life is sitting here and food. So I’ve decided to write a list of why I want this surgery and what benefits I will get from it so I can look at it whenever I want, especially when I’m on the LSD and hopefully it will bring it back to focus on what I’m doing.

Hayley’s Surgery List

I know alot of people do these lists and it seems like a very good idea, I’m just going to add things when I think of them and they won’t be in any order, just as and when I think of something thats worthy to me.

I also want to start taking more photos, its so hard to do that on my own though.. I’ll find a way I guess!

Time to start on my list, hope everyones New Year is going well and continues to be great.

I’m hoping for a good one too, with surgery and less food! Roll on 2014!
