    Well, you probably all know I survived my gastric sleeve operation and am in recovery. My body handled everything no sweat, and is healing well. But I am still feeling nauseous and lethargic a lot of the time. This is because I eat the wrong food and take bites instead of nibbles. Yeah right


    But its purpose was to cut down on my sugar levels/meds, and I have gone from maximum doses on 3 meds, to standard dose on just one, and finally my levels are normal every day.


    The other big plus was losing weight to reduce the pain in my back, and my back is already much better.

    My weight is going down down down, and I am already having to set aside clothes for the charity shop because they are too big for me. News from the Anitpodes 737505495 

    The historical significance of 55kg

    April - notified of surgery coming up, weighed 87.5
    August 4 - weighed 85.1, began the fasting diet
    August 18 - had the op
    August 25 - weighed 79.8
    Today - weigh 74.8


    Only 20kg more to my perfect weight. Am hoping to impress the surgeon when I see him end of November. He wants me in the low 70s, I intend to be in the high 60s. And in the 50s for xmas and a massive clothes buying spree!  News from the Anitpodes 4257000983 News from the Anitpodes 3562701674

    So,  If I got this right,  you lost 121 lbs.  You have so far gone from 191 lbs to 164.

    I had to go online to convert it.

    Almost right Luv, I want to get down to 121 lbs, and have gone from 191 to 164 (in 2 months), and now have only 43 to go. Happy bounce But all those lbs! Make me feel even heavier!  Laugh Think I'll stick to kilograms. Yeah right
