Well hello everyone, it has been a while so I thought I would update.

 

I've got to 70% of my initial goal weight which is pretty damn' fine, IMHO. Not there yet, but heading in the right direction.

 

Anyone else? How we all doing?!

Hello, I am a couple days off the 6 month mark. I started day of surgery at 103.5 and today I am 91.3. It has been slower than my expectations and trying to get to the 80's has been a real battle over the last few weeks. Doctor is really happy with my progress which made me feel great. I am slowly getting my head around buying clothes and allowing myself to be happy. I haven't been happy with myself for many years but with the weight loss I think I have become a happier person. I hope you all are going well :)

Hi to all the April 2014 Bandits

 

Man I cant believe we have had Christmas come and go, what a blur!

 

Angel congrats on hitting your 30kg mark that is super awesome. But you deserve it because you have certainly done all the right things and you have your exercise routine.

 

Gasmama you are doing just as well, I was reading through the thread again and had such a giggle at your ice cream mishap at the cinema (I know its not funny when it happens, but in hindsight I could just picture it) I have had a couple of close calls in public but *touch wood* I have always managed to make it to a loo on time. The first thing I do now when I go out is locate the nearest toilet!

 

Rumplebear how are you doing? You are so amazing, you have the right attitude to fight the cancer. Hope you are doing well.

 

As for me, considering I have done NO exercising (really bad I know but I just hate exercise) I am happy to have lost 23.6kgs so far. Looks like my surgeon's goal of 75 is more realistic than mine of 70! I have lost the weight really slowly but I know its because I have not done any exercise and I still am able to eat pretty much anything I want - just less. This is the first Christmas in my life probably that I have not picked up weight but in fact lost a kilo. My friends are hating me LOL

 

The journey so far has been great, I cant complain. I have had a couple of stuck moments, I have had lots of PBing but all in all I would do it again in a heart beat. This is the easiest and best thing I have ever done. I am sure my results would be better if I put in more effort but  I am happy with the way I am going. I have a relatively normal life and my weight is going down - slowly but its still down and not up.

 

people are finally noticing I am losing weight and commenting on it LOL Considering I have gone from a size 22/20 to a size 16 - but hey whatever. I am just soooo happy I did this.

 

I have another appointment with my surgeon on Monday 09/02 and I am hoping to convince him to put a little fill in as I feel my portion sizes have increased again - I am super worried about either developing or possibly already having a pouch....

 

I hope you are all well, and I apologise for not staying in touch.

 

Chat soon

Hiya Sav

So nice to see you here in the forum. Thanks for the congrats, it seems like such a distant memory now lol.

Congrats on your 23.6kg lost, that's fantastic. I laughed when I read your friends are hating @ no Christmas weight gain. Ha!

Hope your appt goes well tomorrow with your Surgeon.

Hi Angel

 

My appointment went well. I was down 1.8kg since the last time I saw him and even though I knew that number could be higher, he was happy and said most people coming in had picked up 2-3kgs over the festive season. He did give me another 0.6ml fill which has been great - I eat half what I use to and then feel like I have had half a cow! I really am just loving my band. Bring on the 70's!!
