My rollarcoaster day....

Well it started out OK.........

I got an interview with a nursing agency so I can earn some more money and be more flexible with my shifts and study.

My husband was let go from his job but he is relieved as he hated it and felt they were dangerous people to work for and felt he was being used which he was, but now its back to job hunting again and this time there is no payout for us to live on.

I had some more fill put into this afternoon and the dietitian Bronwyn and my fill Dr, Dr Azzi were very impressed with my weight loss to date. They both said I have lost as much in a year as they would have expected in 2 years. They asked me to do a talk at Octobers' Lap Band seminar for people who are thinking of having lap banding done. I have my size 22 pants ready and waiting to show off. I feel a little nervous about doing it as I don't want to scare people off having it done but also don't want to make out its easy.

So that was my day today. I have been having a very up and down week as well I suppose.....

Monday was good I got to see my new furry niece, Sarah the Rottie puppie and my human niece and nephew,Tahlia and Lochlan.
Tuesday was good I went to the psychologist and felt like I was making some big breakthroughs as well as opening more cans of worms/issues. But got to work and we were one nurse down and Dr so I was very flat out and didn't leave till after 6pm.
Today started out good and then slowly went to shit.

I can only hope my week gets better.......or else it won't be pretty.

A year on.......

Well it has been a year since I had my life changing surgery, my gastric lap band inserted. In that year I have lost nearly 23 kg, gone from a size 22 pants to a size 14-16 and lost about 2 metres off my hips, thighs, abdomen, arms and boobs. My BP has gone from 130/90 to 110/60. I don't get puffed doing simple tasks. A year ago I wouldn't go out with friends cos I was embarrassed about the way I looked and felt. I wouldn't go shopping for clothes as nothing would fit and I would come home in tears. Now I don't think twice out going out shopping or hanging with friends. Now I get up 5 days a week and go to Curves, then the pool and then to work. I feel lost if I don't go to curves and the pool I know very weired. I realise I am going to have a lifetime struggle with my weight loss and I have about 20kg to go to my end goal weight but I am well on my way there. Thanks to everyone who has supported me, encouraged me, put up with me and just plain been there for me. I will post some before and after pics when I get a chance. Thanks again.

Well I have started on the new Curves fitness and weight management plan. I have had to slightly tailor it to my needs as I can't eat as much food as everyone else or the same food due to the band. I have also bought some celebrity slim shakes to have a 4.30am when i get up as my tummy doesn't really function well at that hour of the day.

I have been really good doing uni work and working out so all is getting better on that front. i have drawn up a timetable that my psychologist wanted me to do and it shocked me how much I was trying to fit into my days. I now realise why I felt so out of control.

I have an engagement party coming up on the 19th September that I really want to have toned up a bit in that time.

I am feeling more positive about things and thanks to everyone for their comments, encouragement, advice and support, it means the world to me. Thanks again!!!

Best of the ABC
Funny how they always say the complications and bad points of weight loss surgery and not actually about obesity complications!!
