6 Months Ago...

So only 6 months ago today I was in recovery after having lap band surgery and wondering if I was making the biggest mistake of my life (and wanting pain killers). So this afternoon when I realised the significance of today's date, and I had nothing better to do, I found my worst 'before photo' and dressed in the same outfit to take some comparison photos.

The before photo was taken at the start of April 2009 on a holiday in Darwin. My surgery wasn't until May 22nd 2009, but after seeing the photos from this holiday I banned the camera. I was pretty much at my biggest in the before photo and felt horrible the whole time I was away.


April 2009 129.7 kilos - November 2009 99.1 kilos

And some more photos from today in my 'before' outfit...





So I also wondered how much I weighed on this 6 month anniversary of my surgery and for the first time in a very long time I saw a number under 100 kilos...



Please excuse the scabs on my feet, they are a left over dance floor injury from last weekend. I have barely been able to walk all week from the agony of dancing in uncomfortable shoes until 4.00am. Anyway, scabby feet aside, holy fuck! I started to wonder if I would ever see a number on the scale that didn't start with a '1'. In fact, it seems so surreal right now that it really hasn't sunk in yet.

I am finally like the other bandster bloggers that can unequivocally say: getting the lap band was the best decision I have ever made.

  21. I'm the kind of guy who passions to taste innovative stuff. Presently I'm constructing my own solar panels. I'm doing it all alone without the aid of my staff. I am using the net as the only path to acheive this. I ran across a very awesome website that explains how to build solar panels and wind generators. The site explains all the steps involved in pv panel building.

    I'm not sure about how accurate the information given there iz. If some experts over here who have xp with these works can have a peak and give your feedback in the thread it would be great and I'd really treasure it, because I really lav [URL=http://solar-panel-construction.com]solar panel construction[/URL].
