      First follow up with surgeon today, 24days post surgery & 6kg down, 9kg since initial consultation. 
      To say I'm happy would be an understatement

      When did Optifast get so sweet?

      hi everyone....it's been a long time since I was here! I was banded in july 2013...I have had a rough journey through self sabotage, and I think my head is finally in the right place!
      I just wanted to let the newly banded know that it's ok to fail as long as you never give up trying. We are all worth it and we all have the power within (literally lol!!!) to make a better life for ourselves and our loved ones.
      I've attached before and after pics as they inspire me in my dark times!
      I'd love to see other peoples photos as they really help me to focus!

      One week post surgery, 3.8kg loss & 7.6kg since initial surgeon consult. 
      I know it's because I haven't eaten anything but liquids, but when the most you ever lose is 5kdg, I'm taking it
