Oh Sam your message has given me such hope! I am pretty hungry now… I’m trying to keep my eye on the prize… My first band fill is not until the 12th June, and I’m hoping that I feel a little fuller than I do now! I haven’t been following any kind of liquid diet really – just Slimfast and soup – I’ve had some weightwatchers ice cream – I am trying to keep to 1200 calories daily, but am not sure how long I will be able to maintain that.

My next revelation is that I had secretly wanted to have the Op for some time, but never got around to doing it. Anyhow… on Tuesday 1st May I caught sight of myself in the mirror accidentally – I had always been careful not to look – and called for a consultation immediately. I managed to get a cancellation the following day. I went along, everything was exactly what I expected as I had done some research. I was offered a date at the end of May – and I just knew that if I waited that long I would either: change my mind, or stuff myself silly. Probably BOTH. So I insisted on a surgery cancellation for the 6th. Booked, Paid, had the bloods done and went home to tell my husband. I had to go on the pre-op diet immediately and hey presto – went ahead with the surgery a few days later. I have no idea what came over me – but it did. And I’m glad that it did. So far I have lost about a stone in weight – not bad for a hypothyroid! I have not told anyone else, which has been tricky at times. Not one of them would understand – they told me I was ‘lovely’ and didn’t need to lose weight. In fact, they positively sabotaged countless diets! But hey – I have some great new friends – that ‘get it’. I’m looking forward to doing some serious clothes shopping, and being on the way to where I want to be for my 40th birthday in November.

So facebook… I’m toying with it, but just don’t want to blow my cover just yet 😉

I’m so grateful for you being in touch and adding me as a friend!
