Weight Loss Surgery
" just saying"  and I have been keeping contact. She had gastric bypass and I''ve had the lap band so we are following each other''s progress.

We actually " met"  here when she saw my post and it got her going as she did not know this surgery was available in South Africa. Neither did I till my friend bought me a pamphlet from a surgeons office....

16 weeks now and I''ve lost 20 kgs.

Cs, this feeling is better than any anti depressant!

I have gone down 2 pants sizes and 3 shirt sizes.
