One of the guy's at work recently commented on how much weight I had lost and how it was "really noticeable".

It was one of those casual off handed comments which took me a little by surprise - a nice surprise I might add. It made me think about how things have changed for me since losing the 18 odd kilos to date.

So I decided to jot the main things down so I can look back on these and hopefully add to them as I go along.

1.I can do a day's worth of housework now where before I'd be lucky to get half of it done before feeling shattered.

2.I have more energy than I did before

3.Even though I still get down or depressed there is a light at the end of the tunnel attitude now and I rarely feel like I'm back in the bottomless pit.

4.I am calmer at work and not getting frustrated at minor things like I used to.

5. My joint pains are improved - not gone but improved.

6. I have dropped a couple of sizes in clothes

7. My shoes are looser and some have to be thrown out because they are way to wide now for my feet

8. I no longer have to contort my body in weird ways just to cut or paint my toenails - woohoo!

9. My fortnightly massages are becoming enjoyable and relaxing and not torture as they once were due to all the excess fat.

I still have a long way to go (as my surgeon keeps on telling me - no shit Sherlock!)
but I'm getting some runs on the board.My areas for improvement are definitely exercise,being more consistent with the food AND getting the waste works working properly.
