Hi All

I am sitting here reading this post and breathing a very big sign of relief you see, I am now over two years post op and I can feel my old habits creeping up on me, and some of the weight. No where near MrsVinnie’s problem but her post is an inspiration to me to not feel as if I’ve failed, this is just a blip and I’m sure we will both get over it, with help, from you lovely people and GP;s. So thank you MrsVinnie for being brave enough to come on here and get this problem out in the open, it’s good to talk !!!!

Let us know how you get on my love I’m thinking of you and sending a big hug.

Lots of love

This is exactly why it’s so important to share both the downs and the ups. Life is never easy for any of us – it just doesn’t work that way! MrsVinnie has been staggeringly brave and unselfish to share this with us. I say unselfish because simply the act of sharing allows others to open up too. We are all, always in a state of flux and quite possibly always will be. It’s how we came to need wls in the first place – our relationship with food is not the simple one it should/could be.

Sharing the bad times is every bit as important as sharing the good. It doesn’t mean we are dwelling on the negatives, but merely being honest about life after wls. If I were to tell you that it is easy, I would be both lying to you and letting you down. It isn’t. We have to keep trying. We have the tools but sometimes we forget how to use them. We lose our way. That’s when support comes in. Clinical, emotional and physical. Never, ever underestimate the power of a hug from someone who truly knows what you are going through.

Harrow Support Group is on Thursday (14th) and Portsmouth is on Thursday week (21st) November. You will receive the warmest of welcomes at both these official Streamline Surgical Support groups. As you also would at the any of the others listed in the Support Group Section. You don’t have to be a Streamline patient to attend.

Failure is giving up. Struggling is searching for a way back. We all struggle at some point. Let us help you find your way back.
