15 kilograms gone!!

16 Dec

(Heather’s Perspective)

I am wearing a pair of jeans today.  They fit perfectly – and are even a bit loose around the waist and butt area.  Only a month ago – I had to squeeeeeeze into these jeans and could barely manage to get the zip up!  And even when zipped, there was a sausage of fat which hung over the waist-line.  In today’s pic, you’ll see that this is no longer the case.    I am very pleased to announce that I have lost 15 kilograms in 1 month!!  From the time I started my pre-op liquid diet – until now – 10 days post-op!  The pre-op liquid diet part was – by far – the toughest part.  Post-op… it’s been a breeze.  I can only get down tiny amounts of food (my stomach still needs some time to heal from the op – and apparently is rather swollen).  I don’t feel hungry.  I don’t feel deprived.  What a new feeling this is for me!

10 days post-op.

I removed the plasters from my wounds 3 days ago.  They’ve healed very nicely.  Still quite a bit of bruising – but it’s not painful at all.  The shortest cut is 15mm  the longest cut is 40mm… and there are 5 cuts.  The 40mm cut is where my lap-band port is placed, and is also the one which took the longest time to heal.

So!  There you have it!  I am absolutely thrilled to be losing weight and to be seeing a light at the end of the tunnel for the first time in many, many years.  This is the start of a whole new journey for me!  🙂
