1. I saw a number on the scale that started with a 7. I haven't seen a number on the scales that starts with a 7 in my adult life and I would estimate the last time I weighed in the 70's I was 12 years old. Prior to having a lap band my lowest adult weight was 90 kilos (when I was 18 for about 6 months) and today I weighed 79.3 kilos (174.5 lbs). I think it's going to take a while for this to sink in.
2. I have now officially lost 50 kilos (110 lbs). Wow, I cannot believe I used to carry that much extra weight on me every day. No wonder life used to feel so hard.
3. I went shopping today and I fit into size 16 jeans. There is major muffin top, but they'll stretch... I also bought 2 dresses in size 16 from Portmans. I think I can now officially say that I can wear 'normal' sized clothing. Oh my god, I did not think this day would ever arrive. Even as a teenager I didn't fit into 'normal' sized clothes and I had to wear my mum's clothes or she would make them for me and now I can walk into almost any shop and find something to wear. I could cry with happiness.
Now I'm going to go to the gym because I figure getting on the treadmill will be easy while I am walking on air!
