New Year, New Decade, New Shaggs!

In the spirit of the New Year and some of my fellow bloggers coming clean about their tainted and tortured pasts I have decided to post these pics.

This is me this time last year. I was swollen, bloated, anxious, depressed and just (literally) itching to get out of my skin. I had called every single surgery who performed
lap banding and they were all closed and I just couldnt wait to speak to someone. I was banded almost one month exactly after these photos. I only allowed these photos to be taken because I knew one day soon I would be looking at them as pictures of "old shaggs".
On that note, I'd like to thank you all for being in my life and sharing your lives and advice with me and wish you all a Happy New Year full of dreams and wishes come true!


  1. Bloody well done Shaggs!! You can now get well and truly pissed this new year!
    And a happy new one to you.

  2. PS: Pissed as in drunk, that is!

  3. You have come so far, I'm so glad you posted these pics.. Perhaps you should put them side by side and do some comparrison shots.. Said it once and I'll say it again.. Bloody gorgeous, you are..
