My gastric sleeve story: Week 29

The exercise regime is going well, I have swum 3 times this week, been to the gym once, rode Frank my horse once and been on a long 2 hour walk whilst my Dad was on the horse. The only thing I’m struggling with is I always feel a mess, after swimming or the gym I don’t have time to be straightening my hair etc so I’m just tying it up wet and my skin is drying out really badly from the pool. I have ordered some specialist anti chlorine shower gel and a swimming hat so once they arrive it will be better but the benefits far outweigh this tiny con!

I have been living off carrots and hummus, fruit and yogurt and boiled eggs this week and doing really well with staying away from alcohol. When I’m putting my time and effort into exercise it makes me think twice about everything I'm consuming. I went to Sports Direct to buy some gym gear and was absolutely thrilled to fit into a size 18 Adidas t-shirt. I was a size 26-28 before my op! My tummy is still really big so I’m in a 20-22 on the bottom half but it is great being able to fit into normal tops from normal shops. Soon I’ll be able to close down my plus size catalogue account and never look back!
