So I left Australia to go and visit them both in Canada last month and I had lost almost exactly 40 kilos (88 lbs) and I assumed they would notice my weight loss and when they did I would tell them about the band. Well guess what? No one noticed that I had lost weight, or at least, no one mentioned it to me! So I didn't end up telling any of them about getting the lap band. I kind of felt stupid to have to say "I know you didn't notice, but I've lost weight because I got a lap band".
I did have a feeling that my younger brother and his girlfriend would notice that I was eating differently because we always eat big meals together and enjoy food a lot! The first day I saw them we went out for lunch and I was eating my lunch slowly and of course they noticed and said "Why in the world are you cutting your quesadilla into such small pieces?" and I just lied and said it was about ensuring even sour cream and salsa distribution- they know I take my eating seriously, so they didn't question that!
So I am thinking that I might now wait until I hit my goal weight (whatever that is) and tell them then. Or maybe I won't tell them at all... I do hate keeping secrets though and I would prefer to just be open and honest about it, but it's almost gone too far now! One borther is moving back to Australia in September and the other brother is moving to London next week (was supposed to be a couple of weeks ago, but that volcano got in the way), so I guess I'll cross that bridge when I actually see them again.
So, how is my weight loss/gain going with all this fast food and travel? That's a whole other post in itself and right now I am heading out for some Hurricanes and Jambalaya- can anyone guess where I am?
