    Almost 12 months post up and 20kg gone

    Congrats on the weight loss =] 20 kgs is alot i think its dependent on your starting weight the bigger you are sometimes the quicker it comes off =] i have now just reached 20kgs lost and my op was 7 and a half months ago i also i would have lost a hell of alot more by now as my starting weight was 197kgs hang in there any loss is amazing =]
  8. 2 weeks another 3kgs down =] starting to get a little excited =] cant wait till im able to see a diffrence =]

      I only noticed the difference when I was 30kg down. Funny how you don't even notice. I suggest take pictures of yourself to help notice the difference. I have pics of me with jeans about 5 cms gap to close, then another picture with 2 cms gap to close then another picture with the pants done up.
