So my weight stands now at 158.7kg
Took some measurements today, it being a month since I began Optifast. Didn't take them at the start (doh), but will measure myself every month from now on, to supplement the kilos lost. My measurements are:
- Neck - 39cm
- Bust - 145cm
- Waist - 132cm
- Hip - 161cm
- Thigh - 84cm
- Calf - 64cm
I talked to the pre-admission nurse today, who asked me for my calf measurements - apparently they are so large that the hospital doesn't carry TENS stockings big enough and I have to purchase them privately (another $100)!! Next week I have my assessment day, where I see the dietician, bariatric assessor and the exercise physiologist - and that day I need to pay $1500. After that is the big one, when on surgery day Oct 29 I need to pay $17,000 approx upfront. Obviously you can't carry that around in cash he he... I guess I will need to organise a bank cheque (note to self - ask Clinic next week).
I am alternating between being petrified/nauseous and excited/psyched. I think this month is going to pass by in a blur of adrenalin.
