It's not been easy and at times I wondered why I had done this to myself but I'm coming out the other end now and starting to see a difference so worth every penny and every minute of pain and self doubt xx stay positive xx!

Tracey finally decides to ditch the wine
I've given up wine because of calories (not only have I lost my best friend food but now wine as well). Going to try Gin. I have everything I need just need to pluck up courage to try it now
Really !!!! Who knew pork sausage had pork in it! The only thing I can't eat is pork and guess what I picked up and ate today without even thinking yup a pork sausage, hate stuck episodes

Retail therapy is on Tracey's mind today
Still can't believe I'm in a 16 pjs and tops. Really need to get my bum to the shops to buy new jeans as my sister kindly told me today mine look a mess. Normally I like shopping but there is nothing worse than trying to get a comfortable pair of jeans. I usually get Evans wide leg pear fit but they have stopped selling them so back to the drawing board.

Tracey struggles to know what advice to take on board and is getting a bit confused
What a horrible day. Sure it's PMT but like an idiot I put a pic of my evening meal last night on a FB page (not HW) and the amount of comments saying I shouldn't eat carbs and need to eat green veg is unbelievable. Really feeling like I'm a total failure so eventually text Super Sally who put my mind at rest (sort of) and spoke to Van this evening who confirmed I'm doing OK and making good choices so to carry on
I was happy with my food choice but got concerned when everyone in the site said I shouldn't be eating carbs. If I could live on salads I wouldn't have needed the band. I know I have to change my eating habits too but really upset today

Tracey's ecstatic as she manages to fit into a size 16 jeans
So my size 18 jeans are loose still wearable at the moment and I really want to go buy a 16. I know they won't fit me and I'm worried that if I try them on I will feel a failure and grab some food and stuff my face (my usual fall back pick me up) I'm really struggling about wanting that size jeans to spur me on but worried old habits will kick in oh god what to do
Well I did it I brought a size 16 and HELL YES they fit although a bit tight around my Calfs (I have lipodema) they fit whoohoo go me
Wore size 16 jeans for this weeks photos (size 20 in first pic)
I'm slowly becoming more used to my band and listening to my body I still have blips but all in all it's good and my weight is going down.
