3rd of Feb is my surgerversary.. I will be taking some new 'after' photos on the 27th oh jan as that was the date I took my 'before' photo!!

Get straight to your gp or surgeon if the pain is most likely gallstones.. Don't leave it too long! Xx

I'm still around in a very pop in kinda way :)

Happy New Year ladies and cheers to the newer us!

I've not had any problems or pains, so far fingers crossed. I'm finding it a little difficult post Christmas to come off eating carbs although still losing but at a much slower rate. Need to go to gym too but again, lost mojo for that since Dec. I have lost 9stone 6 and still need to lost a stone to get to normal bmi but I am chuffed! I can't believe this time last week I couldn't even walk up the stairs with huffing and puffing. The health benefits have been unreal. My surgiversary is 16th Feb! Blimey! I remember feeling so panicky especially after hearing what a tough time you had Ali.

Anyway.. In the words of Dory - just keep swimming! X

Thank you! Everyone has done well but I'm sorry to hear about the gallstones and feeling unwell. It's so unfair when you're trying so hard and then get chucked a swerve ball! Well done girls, a year ago I would have been happy to be 1 stone down, never in my wildest dream could I imagine I would feel healthy again.

I bought my wedding dress, the sample was a size 12 and fitted like a glove but I've ordered a size 10.. So I really do need to put Xmas and lack of activity behind me now!

eeek 10 wedding dress that has got to be the dream :) it will be beautiful and amazing i'm sure...... we plan on tying the knot too this year although just a registry office then a hand fasting out in the woods..... at the mo a size 12 would be a dream come true .... slipping into a 14 just now has me beaming lol i have one 12 skirt a stretchy (fluke) one lol but it makes me feel good to know its almost in my grasp.

Just think ahead to the wedding photos and how wonderful you will look in that tiny dress :) that's enough to get you motivated .... one day at a time and wow just look how far you've come AMAZING!!!!

You're so lovely Crystal! A 10 is a dream to me too right now lol! but then not too long ago, an 18 was a pipe dream that I could never imagine I would realise, so we will all get to wherever we want to be eventually.. But nothing is as good as knowing that I am healthier inside and out, I felt like a time bomb waiting to explode a year ago

Happy new year Goergie, and well done on your loss! It's a fantastic loss and lucky you for not having any problems post op! I'd say I'm jealous, but I don't mind now I've had my gall bladder removed! Hehe

I bought my first size 16 trousers yesterday.. They're cuff bottom loose fitting Jersey type trousers.. So proud! Tomorrow is my official first weigh in of 2015! Xx

Happy Surgiversary ladies!!

What an amazing journey it has been so far. The numbers on the scales mean less than all the health benefits by far! I had a health check the other day and my calculated risk of heart problems basically 0% - I shudder t the thought of what it would have been a year ago. In fact this time last year I had anxiety of not just dying, but no one would be able to carry my coffin. What a complete nut job I am haha! Xxx

Amazing hon, you look beautiful and very happy. Plateauing is such a pain, I've accepted this as everyone has them - They just mean more to us than non bariatric people because we weigh so often, we notice it more. It can bring you down but then you just need to look at pics like this to see how far you have come :) xxx
