WHAT YOU HAVE ALL BEEN WAITING FOR.....

Oh god.... well i hope you havent been waiting for this because if you have you poor poor things.... Im officially going to post up the picture my mum took the night before my surgery.... oh god. Arghhhhh. I really dont like full body shots.... im not going to do comparisons... maybe ill add a tab onto my page later with that but as for now im just going to have the balls to show you what i looked like just before the surgery to show you how complimentary my photography skills are and when i give them camera to someone else how horrid i look.


Just before the surgery i was so unhappy i could only put my hair in a certain way as every way made me look fat, i didnt make effort with make up and the clothes i had were all to tight and i felt embarrassed wearing anything i owned. Now the hard part is that i can only see a little change in myself where as i have showed other people this and they are like OMG..... I just keep reminding myself of how much further i still need to go.

OMG look how big my head is and how small my features are... i have no eyes lips or mouth ahahah
I certainly am gaining my waist back and i dont feel anywhere near as top heavy. Its proving that this surgery does work but it isnt an immediate thing, but in saying that i have only been banded for over 3 months and the amount of changes i have already had are significant.... just exercising in itself has changed so much for me... i love it and now i push myself.

My lunch from Sumo Salad yesterday... ok the picture is around the wrong way but you get the idea.... so yummy.... but as for today i have burritos that i made last night YUM YUM!

On the exercise front im so crazy proud of myself.... I have been swimming and yesterday i went swimming after work with a friend who had been banded just over a month ago... she has been going through a rough trot but its good to see her still motivated and we are going to go swimming more often. I love swimming but what sucks is getting my hair wet... i hate it as it fades the dye in my hair :( On a plus i did heaps of freestyle strokes and im a lot faster then i was before.... im a fish in the pool and i will swim for forever... im even tempted to go back tonight for another swim because it feels so good.

This morning i got up with the dog and jogged half around the park with him.... itll be exciting when i can job around the whole park, i cant justify going down there now and just walking around. We came back and did a Jillian Michaels work out on DVD and its a new one i purchased and man did it make me sweat, i saw the sweat dripping down on the floor as i was going and it freaked me out. I did the whole work out... normally i only do 20mins but today i did the full 30... my fitness is coming back and it feels fantastic...

Tonight my sister is coming over to weed in my garden with me (which is a work out in itself) as she wants to start doing things as well.... if we finish early i might go for a swim after seeing as my favourite show isnt on tv at the moment lol.

I guess thats it for now.... my scales said i had dropped 600grams which is good, but my scales are a bit bipolar at the moment so im not sure and its going to be TTOTM for me this week so im expecting to gain a couple and loose a couple by next week ahahaha so im going t avoid the scales.

So there you go kids... i finally posted my scary pics.... Arghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.

  3. hmmmm..... I think we all hate our before photo's - but truly yours is not that bad!!

    I still think you lovely and would have thought that if I had met you back then :-)

    BUT - your face has really thinned out - you have made huge changes (and I CAN'T believe the amount of exercise you are doing - puts me to total shame!).

    Congratulations!!!

  5. HOLYYYYYYYYY Shit!!! Ash you look so different, your face is sooo different. I was showing my sister all the people I've met on here and she goes "is that the same person?" Just shows you how much of a transformation you've had!

    You've been very busy with the exercise! Do you go to a gym to swim or do you have your own pool? I really want to start swimming, its the only exercise I like!

  12. Even though you didn't post a comparison pic...I can tell a major difference in your face and upper body! You look so great! And on the jeans thing...you should just try a long with a high rise or midrise! I love jeans!!! Mine were 14 Long dark wash.

  13. I can see a difference too. Sometimes I feel like I haven't made much progress but then I see photos of myself from before and then now and I can see it. It's crazy! We just gotta keep on trucking. Congrats on doing so well with your exercise.
