Just wanted to update. Day 5 and woke up feeling better, I’ve still got a little bit of an upset stomach, but glad yesterday is over as it was awful. Not because of the diet but because of how hard I was finding it made me feel like I would fail at losing and maintaining loss after the operation. I got very upset, maybe it’s a bit of feeling weak, tired and first wave of nerves kicking in that set me off but I did wake feeling more positive and the panic has subsided. I just hope it stays that way but I wondered if anyone got this in the lead up? not worried about the operation it’s self, more about whether you will succeed over all or not? Changing your life so much, is a scary prospect even when you know it will be for the better. I might be best not thinking about it for now and just concentrate on getting through the milk diet and to the hospital! Oh well at least I’m sticking to it 🙂 x

Everything you are feeling is utterly nomal. If you weren’t nervous and worried you wouldn’t be taking it seriously enough!

I remember the feeling of blind panic I had at the thought of not being able to turn to food anymore. It was like killing off an old friend, even if the friend was a toxic waste of space who tried to kill me. The friend was familiar, always lurking in the background to ‘help’ me when things got just too much to bear.

I can tell you with my hand on my heart that sometimes, I still miss that ugly, distructive friend who tried to leech the life out of me even though I can’t tell you why. I guess none of us like change – even for the better, if we don’t understand how to handle it. Wls is our tool. It is the big gun in our arsenal with which we can threaten our old ‘friend’ to bog off and leave us in peace. The trick to making wls work is finding a new friend whether it be exercise, a hobby, new interest or just getting back into life again. I’m going to post about this a bit later as it’s not easy to do.

Keep your eye on the prize and just do the very best you can. We are all here to help and support you – we really are xx
