1 January 2010

So on the 1st day of 2010 I weigh 99 kilos and I look like this. I really hope I look a lot slimmer (and less hung over) in a year from now.

Official progress pictures will follow when I actually lose enough weight to make a difference from the last ones.

My body is in detox mode right now from the last 2 weeks of terrible eating and it is making me very irritable and not pleasant to be around. I got down to 96.2 kilos on the 18th December, but eating out for EVERY single meal between now and then (and then coming home and eating more) gave me a nice little Christmas gain of 2.8 kilos. I have to say that I enjoyed every single moment of eating everything I felt like eating, why can't life always be like that?

So shouldn't the lap band have stopped me from gaining so much weight? Well, not if you don't have enough restriction in the band. I thought I could do it without help, but what is the point of having a lap band without the help? I will be making an appointment with my surgeon first thing Monday to get some fill put in my band and start rocking the weight loss in 2010.


  1. You are so pretty, even when you're hungover :)

    I can't wait to witness your incredible progress this year. You are going to do so well, and I'm very happy to be sharing the ride with you!


  2. I think you should compare your progress pic's now because I see a huge difference from your last pic's.

    Looking great!

  3. Oh you must be VERY hungover if you can't see a difference in those photos, you've come a long way in 3 months and you're looking fabulous!

    Good on you for getting the fill done sooner rather than later, it will be great to see how amazing you look when 2011 arrives!

  4. Happy New Year!

    I have been following your blog for a while now and first wanted to let you know how much I enjoy reading it.

    I haven't commented before, but had to when I look at your current pics and the previous ones. There is a significant difference and you look amazing!

    I wish you all the best for 2010.

    Take care.

  5. I think you look great, liquored up and all! I can totally see a difference.

  6. You are doing so well, I can't believe you can't see the difference yourself -- but I can understand how it must be.

  7. Happy New Year Chick.. you do look hung over! lol

  8. Hey there! I agree with the others.. I can see a huge difference between the old pics and these ones. It was lovely to catch up with you the other day.

  9. WOWEE!

    I was just telling Ness (friend & Blogger) about you and opened up your blog to see these amazing pictures.

    Even from the last ones you posted til now, there is a big visible difference!

    Those boobs are looking very perky and hungover or not you ought to be proud as punch!

  10. You're looking great- I can see the difference. I can understand how you feel, too-- in time, the differences will be undeniable to even you :)

    Can't wait to travel through 2010 alongside you :)

  11. You can do it! I wish I looked as good as you when I'm hungover!!

    Happy new year!
    Em :)

  12. What a change! You look awesome! Congratulations :-)

  13. I can see a difference! That's freaking awesome! Glad you had such a good Xmas/NewYears holiday :)

    You are going to kill 2010! :)

  14. I just dropped by your blog for the first time, and you must be joking about there not being progress! I can definitely see it, but everyone knows that you can be your own worst critic.

  15. I just came here for the first time. You can totally see progress. Be kinder to yourself:-) Christina@

  16. You are doing so well chickadee and I am so glad you enjoyed some festivities at Christmas but are wise neough to put up your hand when you need the help.

    You look amazing! Put these photos side by side with your last ones babe and study it properly not with slimmers eyes (Which always tell you you are bigger than you think)



Awww thanks so much for the comment!
