Gastroscopy and review of results.

So two weeks before I left for Canada, I had a gastroscopy to see exactly what is going on and ensure that there is nothing else wrong with the stomach (barium swallow showed a slight kink).

Entire procedure took less than 15 minutes.  The anaesthetic I had was a new one, so I woke up pretty much straight away with no fatigue or icky feeling whatsoever.

Before being discharged, my surgeon came to see me to explain the findings briefly but that we'd discuss it in more detail when I next saw him.

The following week, I went to see my surgeon for the official results.  I have stretched my stomach but not a lot.  He thinks I look fantastic the way I am, I don't.  He said if I wanted to, he'd do a resleeve (at no cost, probably just excess) but he said it's not necessary.  For 10-15kg, it's not really worth it, is it?

I know I have to pull my finger out and do something but yet, I still can't get motivated.  As stated earlier, even knowing I was going to Canada, I still couldn't motivate to lose the weight.

I've taken the first step and have booked into see a dietitian, so hopefully she can get me back on track.

Also my local gym is holding a 66 day challenge, which I've signed up for.  First prize is $400 clothing voucher for $600 worth of PT sessions...surely that will be incentive enough, right?!
