Slowly but surely…

25 Feb

(Heather’s Perspective)…

Just thought I’d share a little photo.  OK – given, not the world’s greatest photo… but better than nothing!!

About 109 kilograms / 240 pounds

Today, I fitted into another pair of jeans that I have kept in storage for years – and which couldn’t fit me for years – and which now fit me (comfortably, I might add)!  They’re not the nicest or the most flattering pair of jeans… in fact, they’re those “mom jeans” that the fashion police warn you about.  You know, high waist… high pockets… and a bit to much camel-toe for my liking!

Still! I-can-FIT-into-them!!! And this is cause for celebration!!  (Now – I’m looking forward to getting too big for them, so I can happily toss them out!)

Yesterday, I went to the shops and purchased myself some new clothes (I have not done this in a very… very long time).  I bought some new undies, a pair of boots and 2 nice jerseys (American friends, translate: sweaters).  It felt really nice to shop at Woolworths – instead of at my usual haunt – Donna Claire or Penny C (which stock, I kid you not, disgusting… DISGUSTING clothes!  For evidence – click here).

I’m still a bit impatient about the slow progress of weight loss… and yes, yes – I know, I know!  1 kg per week is supposedly perfectly acceptable progress – but I don’t have the patience for it!  I want it ALL…GONE…NOW!!  Maybe I should take Soo up on her offer of going for hip-hop dance classes together…. that’ll probably help the weight-loss progress, huh?

Anyway – that was just a quick little update for the day.  Still extremely happy with my lap-band… and yes, I will book a 2nd fill for March – just to speed things up a bit.

    Hi. My name is Colleen. I had my lap band inserted in June 2011 and have lost 47kgs. I was at 143kgs on the day of my surgery. I am having some issues with my band, getting blocked. My surgeon is suggesting I convert my band to a gastric sleeve which involves me stapling and cutting away 75% of my stomach. I am not very keen on doing this. I would like to get a second opinion. Who was your surgeon?
