About time!!!

I thought I would come on and do an update and I was shocked that it had been sooo long.  It feels like yesterday when I was on here and it was January... I couldnt believe it.

Well the past few months have been pretty smooth with the band. I only had one hiccup around Easter when I got the flu and the constant coughing chose to tighten my band. To which my beautiful Dr Fill came and did a house call and took 3 mls out...... and could'nt that come at a nicer time... I was very naughty and totally took advantage of it being Easter and all the Hot Cross Buns and Chocy's.... hence why I managed to gain 3 kgs in one weekend!!!!!

So from then week by week I have been going and having 0.3mls put back in, and at the moment I am managing most foods but in a baby bowl. Which is the place I really like to be. Its amazing how much you enjoy the taste of food when youve been too tight to eat it....

I now weigh 96kgs. I have been to visit a few plastic surgeons in the past few weeks too, as I have been left with a very large over hang of skin and everything down below seems to have headed south too. The surgeon assured me that by having a tummy tuck and by pulling everything back up not only will I realise I DO have a fanny.... but I will loose that weak bladder aswell....so in my eyes there is really no reason NOT to.....BRING IT ON!!!!
I have decided on a lovely surgeon who is new to Newy and plan on having the surgery at the end of the year. I would hope that I am around the 90kgs by then. Which really should be an achieveable mark.

Well thats about it for now. Till next entry, take care xx

Keep us up to date on the surgery. I know there are a number of us that are wondering what their options are and if surgery is something worth considering. I am so happy for you.

Good to see you back. Yeah keep us in the loop on the surgery. It'll be a few years away for me but I wouldn't mind knowing how it goes.

will you have your boobs done too? or just the tummy tuck? I'm curious because I think I might need both. I'm worried about my thighs too.

I am so proud of you Trish. Your perseverance, commitment and your obvious desire to now help and encourage others are truly inspirational. I am blessed to have you for a friend. I loved you at 136kgs and I love you no more now, but I am more sure of what a wonderful person you are and always have been. Just wanted the world and you to know! Joyce xxx
