Thanks so much everyone! It took me seeing Magda doing it for me to even think about it lol! If she can then I can, and Oprah for that matter lol. I highly recommend it. The exhileration feeling just stays with you for ages! (So do the sore calf muscles but thats another story lol)

That WILL NOT happen lol! I like to have something solid under my toes! We hit the worst Turbulence ever on the plane on the way home on monday night. I actually kissed my rear end goodbye I was that scared! People were screaming. The lady next to me offered me her hand to hold! lol

I did it! I did it!

And it was the most amazing experience EVER!

I highly recommend if you have ever considered it or even not considered it (like I hadn't!) then you have to do it! I can't praise the staff enough. I can't praise the entire experience enough.

I climbed it with a breeze, all the training definately helped. And of course so did the almost 40kg weight loss!
You wear all this equipment that I am sure put 30kg back on me lol. But nothing as far as your safety goes over looked. Everything is thought of.

I cried when I reached the top, the realisation of who I have become and what I went through to get here was just so overwhelming. I am just so proud of the achievement.

The views were absolutely incredible.

My calf muscles have been sore for 3 days now though lol. ON the way down I ended up getting the shakes really bad which apparantly was caused by lactic acid. That took a while to stop.

There are 1400 steps you climb and they were all a breeze! I wasn't puffed or anything. I felt amazing and so alive!

My goal was to climb the Story Bridge in Brisbane for my 30th. I still haven't done it. I am so going to!!! One day After my op, about 5 or 6 months I did a 5klm walk. I nearly died. My goal is to do it again this year but to runa bit of it, I downloaded the couch to 5klm program, now I just have to do it!

How awesome TraceyD!
You must give us an update afterwards to tell us how it went!
The harbour bridge climb is one of my goals to go as well ... just not sure where to fit it in with all my other goals at the moment!

Good luck and best wishes!

I love my sleeve! Best decision I ever made!
I am doing things now I never would have even considered before..

On saturday I am doing the Sydney Harbour Bridge climb with my best friend. I saw Magda Szubanksi (sp) do the climb a few months ago, she has lost about the same amount of weight as me at the time. I thought, I am going to Sydney soon, and if she can do it, I can do it!
So when I won the yummy mummy competition I knew straight away what I was going to do with the money.

I am just so excited. I have been doing a little bit of training at the gym, just long hauls on the stepper, just to try to get my body familiar with the pain lol.

I never ever before even thought about doing it, no reason other than, just never crossed my mind. I am so glad I am getting the chance to do it now.

Wish me luck!
