Weight lost: 24,5 kilo (54 lbs)
It has been twelf weeks since I have had my surgery and today I’ve had an appointment with the bariatric nurse at the hospital in Beverwijk. I was really happy that Huib had a day off. It’s about 30º Celsius today (86º F) and his car has airconditioning. My car has windows that don’t open because they’re broken. So I could drive his car instead of mine (and take him with me, because it’s quite a long drive.) The appointment was at 10.30 am so afterwards we’d have the rest of day off together. That was nice as he has been a bit of a workaholic lately.
All went well. The nurse told me (again) that I need to take it easy and that losing weight is a process that takes time. My body is changing and I should give myself time to get used to it. That is easier said than done. She also told me that me feeling bad all the time might have something to do with not having a proper day and night rhythm and the fact that I don’t eat at the same time every day. She is probably right but keeping up a rhythm has never been easy for me so this will be one of my goals for the upcoming weeks. To make sure everything else is fine she wanted some bloodwork done again. She will call me next week to discuss the outcome of that.
When we left the hospital, we decided that we didn’t want to go home yet. So we drove to Hoofddorp for lunch and a bit of shopping. I came back with another pajama from Primark, this time with cats on it. Did I mention I love cats? This shirt is perfect for me, because I am the kind of girl who will take pictures of her three cats all day long and then post them at Instagram. Otherwise I have been a good girl. I didn’t buy anything else, because I will not be able to wear it for a long time anyways. It does feel good that I can just walk into Primark and shop there, because a few months ago I wouldn’t have been able to do that. Those 24,5 kilos really do make a difference.
We’re back home now and all I have to do is enjoy the rest of my weekend. Tonight I will join my parents to a birthday party with some people I haven’t seen in years and I am looking forward to catch up with them. Oh and to wearing my new denim skirt, of course. I never knew I could be such a girl, but buying clothes is so much fun when you’re losing weight! Too bad it is an expensive hobby, otherwise I would probably go shopping every day. It would be a great way to get my exercise done as well, since it involves lots of walking. While I will keep dreaming about new clothes, I will end here.
Have a nice weekend everyone!
