wow.. have a look at the photos below. The me on the left was taken on October 5th 2008, the right side me was taken January 23rd 2009.
I just can't believe the difference, I mean look at those arms, the puffy face and hands, that is a scary photo, especially the hair, so glad that went.
I have virtually no clothes to wear, I don't really care, I can live with few clothes. I think I will try and hold out buying any more until winter. Lissy has taken all my pants in and I don't think they can go in anymore. I have lost 16kg
(35lbs) in 11 weeks with another 44 kg
(97lbs) to go!!! I've had my first fill where they inject saline into the little pouches around the band, that has made eating interesting, I am almost off meat as I can't digest it, I am mainly on soup which is ok as I love soup. Unfortunately I can still eat potato chips, I am not going to buy anymore now as Michael is on his shake diet and has his banding in two weeks time. I am busily trying to work out what soups I can make with the contents of the pantry.
I have so much more energy, I don't blink at doing 6km power walks with my friend Ali and my diabetes has up and gone. This was a good decision. It is still hard work I have to watch serving sizes and not let bordom get the better of me and I still feel fat, which I am but I look so much better than I did so I keep telling myself how well I am doing and the support from Michael and my friends has been amazing, I am proud of myself.
