For those familiar with this website you will notice its been a while since my last post but a lot has changed, mostly I’ve put on weight and since been diagnosed with depression and anxiety.
On the upside though this has prompted to health service to act and give me the support I need.
I now have regular phycologist and dietician meetings to help with my issues and I’m happy to say I’m finally going under the scalpel again!
On the 25th of November I will be having a Gastric Sleeve procedure which will include the removing of 75% of my stomach. This will be similar to the Gastric Band I had but has been proven to have better result, plus its permanent and won’t slip.
In order to prepare for the operation I have to shrink my Liver by loosing 10kgs. This means I have been on a 1000 calorie a day day and walking 12,000 to 15,000 steps per day and Im proud to say I have managed it.
Some please have said “why don’t you just stick to that and carry on?” but its not sustainable; 1 – I won’t be able to survive as its such a small amount of calories to fuel my body. And 2 – I won’t last, I will end up breaking the diet and binge eating after 2 weeks.
So through this page and my website I will start to share my weight-loss journey again.
