Hey Everyone!

I recently hit the three stone lost point, and getting tons of lovely comments from people about how well I look. Loving being able to dress up pretty for Christmas parties for the first time too!

Here is my horrific before pic again for those of you who haven't seen it, and a couple from last night.

I hope everyone has an amazing Christmas, and that I might inspire anyone in a stall or on the road towards surgery to keep going!

xxxxx

1 stone = 14 Lbs so Twostepsback has lost around 42 Lbs.

Congratulations Twosteps! Keep us posted on your journey.

Thanks guys!!

I had many hopes from this surgery, but never truly expected that it could have gone so well and that I would get so much out of it. For me it was less to do with losing weight, and more to do with having control over what I eat and taking away the obsession with food which dominated my life.

I now barely think about food, and feel like a new person. I want to cry when I look at my before photo because it reminds me just how depressed and desperate I felt. Now I feel liberated.

I realise some people have not had such an easy ride post-op, and I can only say that I hope that everyone finds at least a fraction of the happiness I have found in time. I am extremely lucky, and I never take it for granted.

Ramble over! :)

Wow 2Steps - CONGRATS TO YOU!!!

You look great! I must also say how much happier you look too.

I think the transformation us sleevers go through on the inside is even better than that on the outside. I wouldn't trade it for anything!! Well, maybe one thing - but that's about it!! B)

      My 3 babies and my little "niece". Took on a babysitting job this past weekend. She is super tiny compared to my 3 biggies. Sitting on command for treat-os!
       
      Pre-op Liquid - Day 2 
      It was very hard today...I'm feeling some type of way from not eating the meals I was supposed to before the pre-op diet. My sister got stuck in Dallas a week before my diet and we were supposed to go on a nice dinner, but that never happened. I have super bad dry mouth and bathroom breaks are more frequent.

      Pre-op Liquid Diet - Day 1
      Had my morning cup of 8 oz Regular Orange Juice. I am ready!!! I did have 3 bites of my fiance's cheesecake last night for dinner. It was so yummy but with my former sleeve it didn't allow me any more bites.
