    HI Tyler,
    My surgeon never pushed me toward one of the two surgery in questions. I am scheduled on May 29th and until the last minute I can decide. I do believe both procedure are good and I am going with the sleeve because I bowl issue that I have been having lately and with bypass can worsen.

    I am trying hard to lose weight before going to surgery. I have been changing my lifestyle one piece at the time. It is hard because I get very demotivated when I do not lose weight and do so much for it. However I will keep it together and hope to brake this stall! I have been reading a lot of information in this site and after the first rough of couple of month we should feel good and later can go to eat outside. just ridiculous small portion!

    Have a great Easter

    Hi I am from Wollongong and have seen Dr Talbot at St George Private for my gastric sleeve which I am hoping will be in early August just waiting for my health benefits to click in. I have heaps of weight to lose he wants to do a bypass but I dont want that just a sleeve so have another appointment in May if he still insists I will see another surgeon. How is your weightloss going, I am so worried that I am doing the right thing and yes going out to eat really worries me too. Hope you get over the bbq tomorrow best wishes Tyler

Getting into the swing of things...

by Lola1983 on 04-22-2012 at 04:29 AM
Its been a little while since Ive posted, mostly due to being back at work and getting back to reality.

Work was really tiring for the first week, but I am happy to report that I have developed some positive habits and I have surprised myself! Works great at keeping me busy, but I sometimes have some awkard moments when my colleagues invite to me lunch with them in the common area. Since I told them all I was taking annual leave and made no mention of surgery, they are all so surprised

A day of firsts...

by Lola1983 on 04-10-2012 at 05:15 AM
Easter Monday turned out to be a day full of firsts and motivation, after my couch potato effort the day prior!
Up early, walked for 45 mins with my german, went to Westfield to buy new work pants... and it turns out I have dropped TWO sizes in three weeks! I had no idea, I knew my clothes were a little looser but two sizes.... incredible and the first time in at least two years since I have been this size!
So with all that confidence I went with my partner to the local pub which

Lazy Bones... Uh Oh

by Lola1983 on 04-08-2012 at 04:22 AM
Its Easter Sunday and the weather is average...
I have been couch bound all day, and i can come up with any excuse under the sun (not that its shining) as to why that is... for example:
I overdid it yesterday with a two hour walk and boxing in the sun;
I am VERY pre-mentrual;
I had a massage yesterday that left me in more pain than i started with;
I am nervous about going back to work on Tuesday;
Need I go on...?
I feel like I have snacked all day,
