    How's everyone going with their weight loss journies?

    I have my surgery in four sleeps and am so very excited. I have not felt one bit of doubt and am not nervous at all. I've already lost over 7kg since seeing the dietitian for the first time, 3kg of that has been since starting the pre op Optifast stage on the 2nd of this month. The Opti phase has been challenging but I'm proud to say that I've stuck to it 100%.

    I would love to hear how everyone else is going.

    Coming upto my 4 yr surgerversary.

    I did gain the expected 10% back during my third year, but this year i've successfully re lost it and another kilo. Making it 58kilos lost.

    Id still like to lose another 5.


    My advice to anyone thinking of getting the surgery is;

    The first 12-18 months are the optimal losing stage. After that it becomes very difficult to lose, so make the most of it and if you want more children; really try to get to goal weight first.

    How bloody amazing are you!! That is extraordinary!!! Thanks for the tips regarding optimal losing time and babies. I'm going to do a boot camp type program once I've been cleared to exercise I think, to get things moving. How long after your op were you exercising?

    Thanks everyone


    ... Well. I was told to wait 6 weeks but i joined the gym 3 weeks post op

    By 6 weeks i had a personal trainer once a week and the gym another 4 days a week. Really gave it everything i had from the get go. I think that also really helped with minimising the loose skin issue. (I do still have it, but not as bad as some)

    I did fall pregnant about 11 months post op... I dont regret my daughter but i regret the timing. Shoulda waited until goal.
