When you are waiting for surgery, every day seems like a week. Not just physically but emotionally and mentally too.

The hardest part is keeping hope alive. Then, it’s doing exactly what they tell you to do with no deviation at all. SHOW them all that you mean business. Show fear, anxiety, impatience but never give them one whiff of giving up. It will prove to everyone (most importantly to yourself) that you are going to do whatever it takes to get your life back.

We are all here to support you. If you have a bad day/week, tell us – then start again. Never be unkind to yourself. We are human beings. We sometimes fail (spectacularly in my case sometimes!) but it’s what we learn from it that matters. We are strong people, not weak. Strong because even though life conspires against us – we still keep trying.

Keep everyone posted about how you are feeling. Tell your GP what plans you have formed to make the most out of having wls. Own it. Prepare to succeed. That level of positivity is bloody hard work but it is palpable and other will draw on it. then, when they think of you, all they will see is someone determined and willing.

Kim and I both went through the same thing – a massive risk to our lives even having the surgery. But look at us now. Still here, going on holiday….really LIVING. I know you can do it too. Let us help you. I know I can speak for us all when I say that seeing other people’s lives improve for the better is just as wonderful as it happening to ourselves!
