Today I am having a bit of pain where my port incision is. It doesnt look inflamed, but is just a bit more tender than the others. I also didnt sleep as good lastnight. I wonder if it is because I am a little hungry.. "LACKING REAL FOOD", when i wake in the mornings I cant wait to have my optifast and my stomach is gurgling and grumbling. I never would have thought that I would look forward to Optifast.

I've been having a little peek at some other Bandsters blogs today and am envious that some are a little further in their journey than I am.. I am sooo looking forward to be able to go into any store I like and buy something off the rack. I was walking through the shops today and saw so many nice things. I then walked past the Plus size section and was truely appalled at the frumpy clothing there is. For the last 6 or so months, I have been buying clothes, not because I like them, but because they fit. I am so glad that I wont have to live like that anymore.

I am getting anxious to start walking for exercise, but I dont think I should start before the mushy stage. I mean, I walk short distances every day, but I mean really walking and getting into it. I know once I do that, the weight should melt away at a steady pace..

Toilet matters... I still have not had a bowel movement.. i know you dont want to know that, but it is starting to concern me. I thought that because I wasnt eating solids, that I shouldnt have to poo, but a nurse that lives next door told me that I should. So I think I may go to the chemist and ask for something to help me along. I have been taking the benifibre. However, a day or 2 I have slipped up and not had any.
Oh and whilst on toileting, I had a realisation lastnight... I was on the phone to my mum and said that my urine looks almost greasy. Then figured that it is the actual fat that is broken down from my body.. GROSS huh?? lol... just thought I would share it with you.

Hey Nene,

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE don't compare yourself to others! I think you are doing an amazing job. It won't be long before we are both in smaller sized clothing!

As for the poopy, I have only been once (Tues I think) and it really wasn't much to talk about. Di Barr told me to get some pear juice to also help things move. That or prune juice.

I too am also feeling hungry. I'm hoping they let me go onto mushies on Monday when I have my phone appt with Di.

Keep up the great work,
