Lots of questions

Wow I have been inundated with questions about the sleeve recently. Its so good to hear that so many people know about an op that I had never even heard of before my surgeon suggested it to me! I am so proud to be an advocate for getting the word out there! I hope it turns out to be the magic pill that we've all been searching for. I can't believe how my life has changed. The confidence I feel, the power I feel when shopping. I love being able to walk into a shop and take my pick off the shelves.

Although I have learnt why woman get so discouraged with the sizes.

I bought a new denim skirt on the weekend. Didn't try it on, just picked up a size 10. Got it home, it swims on me. But I kept it because I figured that a size 8 would be too tight. Its weird to wear something that bares my knees!! They have been hidden for so long!! This is the skirt:

Also shopping related! I bought a bikini the other day, its a size 10 and its a bit too small. No freaking wonder woman feel so bad when shopping.
I love it and wonder if I should just keep it! Its a string tie on the side, it just means the strings have to be tied a bit wider than they are designed IYKWIM?? But I love it, and I doubt the shop will exchange swimwear anyway.

Anyway I better get back to work, I have taken about 3 hours to type this between phone calls and people coming to the door! I don't know work getting in the way of blogging! How dare it!!?? I don't get many comments on this blog, except fo rthe asian ones and I have NFI what they say or why they are commenting! But please don't hesitate to ever ask me any questions. This op has been the best thing I have ever done for myself, and I want to share it with the world!


  1. congrats! i can just imagine how happy you are (i'm at the thinking about it stage where this all seems impossible to me!) just one question though, you are one of say 3 people I've seen have great success with this surgery, the rest of the people who's stories I've heard through the support site haven't gotten this success and I just have to ask you, what did you do? Was it exercise or specific foods/ways of eating? Thanks!

  2. Hi Medina, I didn't do anything different than anyone else. I have done NO exercise, which I am kicking myself about. I wish I had toned myself on the way down! Never too late though I guess!

    Have a look at the gallery on GSS, the results there are outstanding!

  3. Thanks for this Lib, you have inspired me to get the surgery. I hope I can be as sucessful as you, although I doubt I'll ever end up in a string bikini!!
