3 Sleeps To Go!

I can't believe how quickly the last 2 weeks have flown!!  I haven't lost much weight this week, only about 1.5kg.  I'm not sure why. I have been 95% on track and done exactly as I have been told but it's very, very difficult when I've been on holidays and Ben has been back at work (so I haven't got him keeping me in line).  If I eat something that I shouldn't, or too much of something I  feel so incredibly guilty and hope that it hasn't affected the success of the surgery.  I then run around like an idiot to try and get rid of the extra calories I may have consumed so that my liver will have shrunk.  But let's face it, I'm having this surgery because I'm shithouse at sticking to a diet or exercising any kind of self control, so really I've done very well!

I had a blood test today.  They tested FBC, U&E and H&G.  At least I think that was it.  The rather unfriendly lady who was poking holes in me mentioned something about full blood count and was I having surgery soon.  I assume it is routine.  The hospital has changed my check in time to a little earlier.  I thought it might be because of my leaky heart valve but apparently I've been pushed up.

My positive self talk is progressing well.  I'm shouting things like "I'll be all brand new", "new wardrobe!", "millions of people all over the world every day!" and the most common "take a teaspoon of cement and harden up princess!"

I'm planning on cutting out my allowed protein for the last 2 days and just having the shakes.  Maybe a last minute starving of my body will shrink up the liver to the max.  I'm going to give it a go!!


  1. I think you would lose more weight in the first week anyway Elly. If I don't get back to comment before Monday, all the best. Here's to the new you.

  2. Good on you Elly. You're a brave lady and I look forward to the updated profile pics as you 'shrink'. You're a gorgeous lady now, look out when you've got your new hottie bod :)
    Lots of love and best wishes for a speedy recovery xxx Tracey (NZ)
