Well I had my second ever full on sorta PB experience! Had some chicken for lunch and as soon as I swallowed it I had a bad feeling. Thankfully I was at home. Poor Hubby was looking at me like I was weird. I was out in the front yard, crouched over doing my best to bring it back up when all of a sudden I let out this almighty burp. It was hilarious, or so my hubby thought. Nothing came back up but the relief was instant.

Great to know this band is working! I do get worried at times as so many people have such issues with food. I guess I am one of the lucky ones that can pretty much eat anything and not have an issue with it getting stuck. It does often leave me wondering if the band is actually working though.

So as Christmas day looms near I think we are the lucky ones here in Australia. With the hot weather we can induldge in summer fruits and cold salads and not be tempted by hot comfort foods. My Christmas Day plan is to spend the whole day in the pool or lazing by it. Each year a friend who we spend Christmas Day with brings me a very expensive bottle of Champers which I enjoy. I am paranoid about my band slipping with carbonated drinks, but think I will throw caution to the wind and indulge a little. The rest of the day will be lean ham, heaps of fruit and some salad. I always get a little down this time of year as we are so far from family and at this stage I still don't have a family of my own. Let's hope 2010 changes all that for me!

On a positive note I went shopping for some shorts and am now fitting comfortably into a size 16. Once they are 'worn in' I end up having to wear a belt with them. I have also purchased the size 14's and have them as my new goal.

Might be time for some more photos!

I think you are one of the lucky ones who can get away without having the dreaded PB episodes, I know a woman who has had the band for nearly 2 years now, and is at goal weight.. She has never PB'd.. Oh how I wish that was me.
Try to enjoy christmas, carefull with the carbonated drinks (champers), you may even find that you physically cant have more than a glass or 2, due to restriction..
Focus on what you DO have in life, rather than what you dont yet..It will happen, it might just take a little longer to be that little more perfect when it does happen..Chin up beautiful..
Cant wait to catch up in the New Year
