Migraine :/

I think if I looked hard enough, I'd find a post with the same title as this one...

I've had a really bad Migraine since yesterday.  It started as a headache on Friday, I conquered Overtime on Saturday but struggled with it yesterday.  I'm amazed that I made it through the whole day at work today as it was quite bad.  The only thing that has seemed to work when I have a migraine in the past is a medication called Maxalt and there is only one Chemist in my area that stocks it so, I went to the Doctors this afternoon to get a new script for it and went and it.  It didn't work as the Migraine had already settled in so, I had a little nap and it seems to have gone away for the moment.  I have gotten up to have some dinner and a drink and then I'm having a shower and back off to bed for me!

I remember when I first got my band, I used to suffer from headaches quite badly.  One of my other fellow bandit friends said she went through the same thing.  I need to remember that now I have had my fill, I am technically back at the start again as far as getting used to my band goes.  My body has had the past 6 weeks living relatively normal and now it's back to being banded.  I've had a fair bit of water to drink today but have been struggling to eat as much a what I should be as I do forget to eat as I'm no longer hungry.  I bought some shakes tonight and I'll put them in the fridge at work and shall set reminders on my Outlook so I remember to have them!  I hate Migraines.  I haven't had one like this for a very long time.

I've had a really good last few days.  I went to the movies with a friend on Saturday night (yes, I saw Twilight) and it was really well done.  On Sunday, we went to the Miniature Railway in Altona yesterday.  The kids love it there.  I had a ride on one of the trains with Charlotte and we had a Picnic.  I packed some rolls and some fruit.  The Weather was perfect.  A little bit windy but, it was nice to get out into the fresh air. 

I'm looking forward to this weekend - a friend at work gave me some tickets to a magic show.  I haven't told the kids about it yet but, I am sure they'll be excited. 

I hope everyone has started to do their Christmas shopping!  I can't believe how organised I am this year!  I have a few people left to buy for but, I am shocked that I have almost finished all of my shopping!  We are so lucky to have everything available at the touch of our fingertips.  I haven't gotten much from the actual shops at all this year. 

I was going to weigh myself this morning but, I see Dr Winnett again next week so, I think I'll wait to see what his Scales say.  It will take me a while to get used to having my fill back I but the weight should have already started to drop off again.


  1. You are looking amazing.

  2. TY for all your help over the past few days
