Sandi Loggenberg- My Story Update June 2011

Update: June 2011

I’m now 2 years and 10 months post-op and I am very proud to say I’m still on track! My total weight loss was 48kg.

I’m still doing some form of activity every day and I’ve even got a personal trainer.  I know that some say one was addicted to food and will replace that addiction with another, well I suppose mine is exercise! And I love it!

I still have days where I feel food tries to control me but I make sure I get busy.  I have overcome my “fat” thoughts and make sure I speak to someone if I feel overwhelmed.

I know most people think this was the easy way, but I can tell you from my experience that this was a difficult journey.   I had to give everyday attention and make sure that I was thinking, doing and feeling the right things.  I still go to support groups because I find the people motivate me.

I know that for the rest of my life I will need to work hard at my weight, not only physically but mentally and emotionally too.

But I’d rather do that, than be “fat” Sandi again!
