I’ve been feeling quite tired this week. I am due a B12 injection and when I spoke to the support team at NOSC, they said feeling tired is completely normal. Speaking to Tina really set my mind at rest. She told me that it is just my body’s way of letting me know that I’m ready for the B12. That made me think, and I realized that three months has gone by already! I can’t believe how quickly time has flown since my op.
People who haven’t seen me for a couple of months are VERY surprised when we meet. I was shocked when my cousin walked straight past me last weekend in a shop! It really brings home to me how much my face and body have changed.
People who know me would tell you that I have a bit of a mischievous sense of humour, so when a lady in the salon was saying how great I looked and asking me me how much weight I’d lost I couldn’t resist……..When she asked what I had cut out to lose all that weight….of course I couldn’t help but reply…… my stomach !!! You should have seen her face!
On a more serious note, when I was first considering having this procedure, I felt quite embarrassed at the thought of telling people I was having bariatric surgery. I was the same just after my op too. Now, I’m MORE than happy to tell anybody about it. In fact I tell anyone who will listen because of how fantastic it has been for me. I haven’t felt this good…….. this confident, for years!
Weight Update: So far I have lost 42lbs ! That’s 3 st!! Amazing!
Imagine 42 of these strapped around your middle! Makes you think doesn’t it?
