Sleeved 8th January 2010 in Melbourne. Update here.........gone from 116kg to 76kg I'm going well. My surgeon didn't give me a goal but wanted me to lose 50% of my excess weight which I have lost 68%. Which is great as there is no pressure form him but you must folow his rules. He also said the first 6mths are the easy part now I have to work at it as in walking and sport I play squash. I still can eat anything don't like fried food as my tastes have changed.
Gone from a size 24 TS14+ to size 12 just amazing I love it.
So 40kgs down and I'm now getting comments like "your've lost enough now and you look great the way you are" They don't even realise that I'm still overweight and not in the healthy weight range yet.
Its interesting how people treat you differently even stopping to let you cross the road............I feel a bit miffed by this as I'm still me....Life as a skinny person sure is new and very interesting at times.
Oh I did have an Iron infusion two weeks ago as my iron stores were getting down as a day patient not so bad. It was like getting the car serviced all is good. I take multi vitamins,cod liver oil, B complex just one of those things. I eat stacks of protien who knows......
Hope you are all traveling well.
