Today is the start of a new direction for me. almost 3 years post lap band I am now having it out and going with a gastric sleeve or bypass as the band has not worked despite having a routine of healthy eating and exercise. It all started today with a call to a surgeon who does the operation, then off to my GP for a referral. I see the surgeon in 1 weeks time. My blood pressure continues to rise despite medication and that’s a big worry for me. I dont want to die of a stroke or heart attack so I need to get things moving. I am almost back to pre band weight, and my health risks are increasing. so come on my new journey and I will keep you posted as to what happens next PS sorry its been so long just too much for me to handle. I am currently 101 kg and wearing sz 20/22 clothing. I am back at the gym but for how long I dont know until I have dates for surgery.

It’s been a while I know, I am slack. But all is about to change. My husband bought me a few aids to help me get motivated to exercise, as it’s sooo cold and miserable here in winter. First he got got me one of these.
Then we saw one of these in a second hand shop and thought it would be good too.
Then I saw a game for the Wii and got that too!!
So, Now I have all the equipment I need to get under way. I have been using them for 2 days and have lost 1/2 kilo, and now I am down to 86 kg’s. I hope that the coming weeks will show a marked improvement in my exercising.

Well the last time I measured myself, it was Dec last year, so i thought I would take another lot to see what’s really happening to my body. Here goes.
So far that’s a total of 42cm off my fat body..

Have been on some really good walks lately, about a month ago Tony and I walked into Lilydale falls, its a 10 minute walk, about all I could manage so soon after my operation. It was a lovely day, and I enjoyed it a lot.
Then I have been doing about 2 km’s on my walks since, but TODAY, I walked almost 3 and 1/2 km’s. YAY!!!! I am so proud of me as I didn’t complain once about sore ankles or knees. I even kinda jogged the last few metres home.

Well sorry guys I have been slack. Illness has taken it’s toll, and I’ve been going thru a state of depression, but hopefully I will be back on track soon. I have now lost 20kg, and will be getting my first fill Thursday the 2nd of June. I had a great walk on Saturday, 2.2 km’s ( 1.26 miles) without having aching feet, ankles or knee’s. YAY!!!! Once I get back into a routine things should start moving. I will take some photo’s on my next walk.

Well. it’s been 4 weeks since I had my op, it’s been a battle as I contracted an infection which kept me housebound and unable to do any exercises. I have had a community nurse coming every few days to change my dressings and keep an eye on things, and happy to say now I am almost healed. The good news is that I am now under 90 KG for the first time in many years. Today I weigh 88.9 kg. YAY!!!!!!!!! Things should start to move now I can get into my exercise routines, and get moving. My goal is to be 60kg, or there abouts, I am on my way..

Hi everyone, well Its finally done!!!! April 2nd 2011 at 3.30 pm I was operated on and had my lap band in. It was a long day and i was getting more nervous as it went on. I had an amazing medical team looking after me, very friendly and talkative to keep my mind of the op. I stayed in hospital overnight and had a barium x-ray, ( wouldn’t recommend it as it tasted like very sweet chocolate cordial YUKKKKK) to make sure my band was in the right place and working ok. I have come home with a weeks supply of special injections which I have to give myself. I had todays and it was easy, no fuss. My wimpy hubby said he couldn’t do it as he would pass out LOL. Anyway, so far so good, now the real work begins, so I will keep you updated.
