Haha! I have been sussed, Chris! I know I come on strong but I really do feel like we are a ‘family’ on here. We share the highs and lows and it makes no difference whether or not we have met in ‘real’ life. We are usually people that, at some point in our lives have had to justify ourselves and that saddens me. That’s why I’m so vocal about wls not being the ‘easy way out’.

How about saying it’s all about portion control like Paul suggested, or joining Slimming World or Weight Watchers? Many people join such a group just for the support after wls. As he is an acquaintance more than a friend, it’s a fair diversionary tactic.

I’m so happy you feel supported here. This forum has been a life line for me too in the past. Not only are we encouraged to support each other but also to be kind to ourselves. And put ourselves first – for once. It’s not being selfish. It’s doing what we would do for others but for ourselves. It’s actually a very hard thing to do!

Anyway, here I go again with the verbal diarrhoea lol. You have been kind enough to care about someone you don’t know that well, to ask for ideas on how to help him. I hope you realise what a wonderful person that makes you 😉
