We've included a transcript below to help:

It looks like the last fill has really given Lisa a nudge in the right direction. Size 14 by Christmas, you can do it! 

Hi everybody. So, this week has been another really really good week. I’m still losing weight. Still keeping it steady. I've lost another three and a bit pound this week. I've not been able to get out on the walks and as much as I would've liked to this week, which I think is probably why I've only had the smaller weight loss. But a weight loss is a weight loss so I'm definitely not complaining. Yeah, so it's going really good.

My dress is now ordered. I've tried it on. The fact that I can even get into a 14 without ripping it  good. Obviously, it's just about zipping up and it is a little bit tight, but I have got another five weeks. So, as I've said before, I'm quietly confident that I'll be able to wear it. Even if I don't get to wear it, last year I was wearing a size 22 so whichever way you look at it, I've come a long way. I'm really really happy.

Appetite is still going really really well. I'm not feeling hungry. Not feeling the need to eat bigger portion. My portion sizes actually stayed really really small. I'm at the point now even where I'm having my side plate size meals. I'm probably getting through about half of those at the minute. At first, I was thinking I'm not really eating enough and even trying to eat more but it's just wasn’t working. I think I may have got restriction, because it's been a while now since my last fill and I remember with fill one and two, the effect kind of wore off quite quickly and I found that I was able to have bigger portions and eat more within a week sometimes even a few days after having the fill. Whereas this time I'm kind of like over two weeks in and it's still small portions for me at the minute. I just physically cannot eat anymore at all. So, I think I may be there which is a really really good sign. Obviously because the weights still coming off as well I know that everything is falling into place quite nicely.        

Me in myself, again still feeling like I've got loads of energy. It's funny as well because my nails are starting to grow. They're not painted at the minute which isn't it fantastic when I'm doing a video talking about my nails, but yeah, I used to have really short nails and they've actually started to grow now. I suppose it's all part of this healthy eating. It does affect your body in so many ways it's amazing. I mean admittedly I do wear makeup, but even when I've not got my makeup on I can notice my complexion is it's a lot clearer. I've got a bit more of a glow to my skin. So again, you know all the fruits and vegetables they are obviously having a really good effect. Which I'm very very happy with. Everything is going so well. I've not hit any flaws within this whole journey from when I started. I know I've had my ups and downs but I've never had any big issues and I think you know, it's just going really really well. I'm quite far into the journey now. Well it was end of March when they got banded and we're in November now so I'm coming towards the latter end of my first year and it's just gone so well, so so well. Definitely one of the best decisions I've ever made and I'm just so happy that I decided to do it. So that's it for me for this week you know, it's been another brilliant week. Can't complain. Things have gone really well. So I'll speak to you all next week and hopefully things will still be going in the same direction see you all soon. Bye.
