I was lucky enough to skip out on work for a few hours on Monday and have lunch with The Candid Bandit and The Deluded Princess. TCB had the lap band 6 months ago and has lost 28 kilos and TDP is shrinking away for her wedding next year and has lost 38 kilos. I think all our minds were a bit blown and we saw this photo taken on Monday and how much we have all shrunk over the past 18 months.
l-r: me, TCB, TDP
I have just worked out that collectively we have lost 113 kilos (248 lbs). I am so freaking proud of us!!!
For comparisons sake, take a look of the awful photo of TCB and me taken on New Years Eve 2008. I wasn't even at my absolute biggest here and some of my body is cropped out of the photo!
See the look on my face, I knew this was going to be a terrible photo...
Here is one more I just found on facebook taken that same night. Man I remember how embarrassed I was when I saw those photos.
I vividly remember talking to TCB on the balcony of the bar we were drinking in, right before the New Year was rung in, and we were saying how much our lives would change if we got the lap band and how wonderful things would be. I think we were right!
