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.
