Video Transcription

We've included a transcript below to help:

Things aren't quite as steady as they were at the beginning of her journey, but Lisa still smashes it with a 3lb loss!

Morning everybody. So, this week has been a bit of a slow week, again. I've been really poorly so I've not been able to eat the things that I've wanted to eat. I've felt awful. Really really bad. So yeah, It's been a really slow week. I've not been able to get out and do any exercise which I'm really really gutted about, because that was one of the things I really wanted to try and keep up with. But, you know, I'm feeling better now. So next week is hopefully going to be a new stage.

I'm also going to be having fill number four very soon. I think I definitely need that now because I am starting to feel less full than I was before. So, it's definitely creeping back up a bit. So yeah, I really want to get to my goal. I'm determined to get there and if I don't I think it's going to be such a shame and I will be really really gutted about it. So I really really want to try hard now and get to where I need to be. In regards to weight loss I have maintained again this week but to be honest I'm not -- I'm not really surprised about that. That's pretty much what I was expecting. I'm just glad that I've not put on. I’ve said it before, I'd rather maintain than put on. Definitely happy about that.

It was really really funny I had a couple of comments off people from work today that hadn't seen me for a while and they said 'Woah, you've lost so much weight!' I mean it's really nice but I got a bit embarrassed I was like 'Oh god’. How noticeable is it? So I’m thinking now, do I tell people I've had the band or do I not? I'm not obviously ashamed of having it whatsoever It's something that I chose to do but yeah clearly the results are very visible now so I'm just really happy that it is still working  and although I've had, you know, this week and it's been quite slow and in the past i've had the odd week here and there where it's not been brilliant overall the experience has been fantastic so I really can't complain. But, like I said, I'm feeling better now so hopefully next week things will get back on track and I shall have a loss. So, I shall speak to you all then. See you soon. Bye bye!
