post op update!

11 days post op

Had my dressings off on Thurday, and boy it feels better. I was told I have to wear Tummy Control Scary Briget Jones pants so have had to go get some (evil things are soooo uncomfy!) but the sweling is dramatically reduced and I'm now 9lb less than when I went into hospital! Yay!

Tell you one thing! After 15 years of overhang my groin is chilly (tee hee!!!) Must get a longer coat!

Back home post op

Well... it's done. I had my tummy tuck on Monday and 3 days later I am home! I am sore and tender and swollen but I have no regrets! I have a new belly button and a flat tummy. The overhang left from 8 and a half stone weight loss is gone and it feels great x

At the moment it is too soon to tell how I will look as I am still swollen around my abdomen but it sure as hell won't look worse than it did.

Gotta look ahead now and get well.
Will keep you posted on recovery!

Well I have had an amazing week! After getting to goal this week I decided to have a totally WW free week and have whatever I fancied. It's been YUM! However I have had no energy and feel rubbish to be honest! Back on track today and feeling positive for the week ahead xx

DID IT WORK??!!!!!!

Am i destined to be this weight forever?!

Friday, 17 July 2009

Tired of this!

Well the last two weeks have left me only half a pound loser to goal! Stayed the same this week, and am gutted. I KNOW that everyone says the last few pounds are the hardest and boy are they right!

Desperate times call for desperate measures.... this is gonna be the week from hell but I'll keep you posted next week as to whether my cunning plan will work!

Weigh in last night took me 4.5lb down. I have now lost 116.5lbs and only have 3.5 to go. My BMI has gone from 42 to 24 which is normal and I am now a comfy size 14.

Here is a photo of the last 6 months back at weight watchers

The Man from the NHS... HE SAY YES!

In about 22 weeks I will be having my tummy sorted forever thanks to the lovely consultant I saw yesterday at the hospital!

Apparently I meet all the criteria so they have put me on the waiting list!

I am SOOOOOOO happy!

Finally got back to my favourite thing!

It's been so long (about 10 years) since I have felt comfortable with myself enough to get on a horse.

Was like riding a bike and came flooding back!

Good Day x

Whoo HOOOO! Well the no bread and no chocolate plan was as cunning as fox!

4 and a half pounds off this week!

I FINALLY have less than a stone to go and for someone that has been at least 3 stone overweight for as long as I can remember this feels FABULOUS!

Let's see if I can keep the momentum going!

Well I finally had a gain this week of 1.5 lbs! Instead of wallowing in self pity I am set for a great week. I knew it was coming as I have been getting far too complacent. So this week:
No bread
No chocolate of any form WHATSOEVER!!!

Lets hope that does the trick!
Will post next week result bad or good!

Daughters Birthday week!

I have been BAD this week, lots of cheeky scoffing and not tracking! However I have managed to lose half a pound which I am thrilled with! Going to be the most disciplined girl this week. Need to be heading towards the next stone bracket which will be the last one!

My size 16 jeans fell down yesterday while I was carring by daughter! I never thought I would be so pleased to have this happen!! Time to get a 14! YAY!

Hurrah! After a disappointing 0.5 loss last week ( I know I know! Still a loss!) I have dropped 4lb this week. Great except for the fact that I had no bread this week to see if it would make a difference! .... is life worth living without bread AND cheese!??!..... y'know what, I reckon it is!

I have now exactly a stone and a half til I get to goal and have lost 98lb from my heaviest! So looking forward to the shopping trip at the end of it all!!

Will get my daughter to take a pic again on the 25th of this month, hopefully will be a bit further along by then!

Friday, 20 March 2009

God bless this week!

Chuffed to bits as I have lost 4 and a half pounds this week!

25 and a half pounds til goal, I wonder if I can bring my date to get to goal forward! Hmm? Will have a think on that!
