Hi everyone and welcome to my life.

I am 26 years old I live in Cardiff, NSW, Australia. I am married and have 2 fur children Suzie 4 yr old Chihuahua x Staffy and Kira 2 yr old American Staffy, they are my life and I couldn't imagine my life without them. I work as an Endorsed Enrolled nurse for 2 GP surgeries and agency in the hospital system as well as doing my registered nurses degree via correspondence (cos I have nothing else to do with my life........not). In my spare time I navigate rally cars and watch motor sport.

I recently had a gastric lap band inserted for weight loss. I have struggled with my weight my whole life and thanks to my mum and dad I have finally been able to do something big about it. I was 107.8kg when I was first banded. My goal is to get to about 60kg or fit into a size 12 jean skirt and size 12 jeans. I have currently lost about 5.5 kg and have some fill in my band.

During my life I have suffered from severe depression and obesity. I know I will continue to have a lifelong battle with both but I will win and I will somewhat take control of my life again.

So this is somewhat of a diary of my life. So one day I can look back at it and see where I have come from and where I am going to.
