Those who know me, know that I have been battling a weight problem for quite a number of years. Last August, after being inspired by my sister's success, I decided to try Cohen's Lifestyle Clinic (http://www.lifestyleclinic.com.au/) and boy has it worked. It really is a no brainer - if you follow the program, you lose weight. So far I've lost about 36.5kg and have about the same to lose again. My gall bladder issues have set me back the last few months, but now I'm back on track and will reach goal later this year. Don't know what I'll look like at 56-59 kg (think I skipped that weight when I was younger (lol)), but am looking forward to meeting the new me. I look at these photos of me and can't believe it's the same person. I am so thrilled with my progress and need to stop beating myself up for not doing more to date ... but as they say, "If it is to be, it's up to me". I can finally buy clothes at regular stores, and have even managed to buy stuff from shops I would never have walked into - it's very liberating.
On the recovery front - am feeling much better. Went back to the doctor's yesterday because my belly button wound was looking very dodgy - it was making my stomach turn every time I looked at it. He put a heap of antiseptic on it and redressed it. It looks a lot better this morning - definitely not as angry. Will most likely be back in the office on Monday (shudder - how will I go having to get up at the crack of dawn again?!).
Cheerio, Lisa :-)

Good for you! Keep up the good work. Now that the Girl Scout Cookie season is over and I've now joined a gym, I'll be a big loser, too. My goal is 30 - 40 lbs.

Thank you for the inspiration!
