Halfway - Am I really here???

Oh my goodness, without realising it I am now halfway to my weightloss goal!! Halfway there! I never even imagined I would be typing a post with this title. I used to read everyone's blog's where they announce they are halfway or at goal and I would always think to myself - God I wish that was me!!

To anyone reading this post who suffers from self doubt (especially when it is weightloss related) you can do it. I am living proof that the impossible can happen. I am still sitting here in shock!

I am going to shake things up in the land of Kellie. I really need to work on toning this body of mine. Generally speaking I am pleased with how my body has held up, especially given the abuse I had put it through. I am most unhappy with my belly (as you all can imagine) I am a mum of 2 and my belly was no rubberband before I feel pregnant - I stretched that belly out way before I even contemplated having children.

Looking back I am so angry with my self for letting myself get that bad. I have been sifting through some old photos and to be honest I no longer like to think of that person as me. I know that sounds really horrible and all but it makes me really sad to look at the pain behind the eyes of that person. She looked so .... helpless.

Thank you lapband for helping me feel in control. I know I have my days where I curse you, but I know that I would not be the person I am today without your help.

And now I leave you with a face comparison picture - please excuse the dark circles!!!


  1. Congratulations!! That is fantastic!

  2. Congratulations-- it feels so amazing, huh? Love the comparison pic, it is so very obvious how far you've come.

  3. Congrats! Very inspiring!

    Thank you for stopping by my blog-the host of the spa day is my Mother-in-law, hence the apprehension. But-I shouldn't complain, it is a spa day. =)

  4. I have spent a lot of time being angry at myself for letting it get so out of control, to the point that only surgery could help! I guess we just have to move on and live in the now.
    Great photo comparisons! As my hubby says "You lost all your chins!"

  5. Thanks for the follow - I just found your blog today, I've been searching for it but there was no way to find it just from your following me. :(

    Anywho, great job on getting halfway to goal, that's always an exciting time! :)
