For many years I have struggled with my weight, nothing would ever help me lose the weight i needed to lose. I ideally need to lose around 40kg, but I could never get past 10. So, we made the decision to look into lapbanding. I looked at other options, stomach sleeving, gastric bypass, but decided lapbanding was the best option. So i did my research, up'ed our health insurance, and waited for the year to pass. I saw a dietician, talked to as many people as possible about the surgery, the pro's the con's and everything in between.
Tuesday came, and off to hospital we went. Apart from the nerves, I help up pretty well, and the surgery was a breeze. According to my specialist, I have beautiful anatomy on the insides! That made me giggle and cheered me up.
So, here I am, two days after surgery, feeling rather fragile. I debated for a long time about telling people, and I am cautious on who I tell on the outside world. But i figure that this is a journey that is much bigger than our renovations, and I am not ashamed of having to have the surgery.
So, this is me on Tuesday (well a stimulation of me, I'm not too keen on posting my real self on the internetz)
So, lets raise our juice glass (because all i can eat for 2 weeks is liquid food) to a new beginning!
