Hi all, hope everyone has had fun over Christmas and a happy new year to all. This was my second Christmas after wls and I noticed that I can eat far more than last year. But still I eat far less than most people so I’m hoping I’ve reached the sweet spot where I’m satisfied with a healthy diet with the odd treat and my weight is stable. I’m lucky that I can manage to eat most things but I did slightly over indulge with salted caramel nuts the other day. About half an hour after I’d had them, I got a big sweat on and had to go to stand outside to cool off. That’s as bad as it gets for me, I’ve never had any more severe problems or dumping from what I’ve eaten.

I had a conversation with my mum today about the change in me since I had surgery and how others have reacted and the compliments I’ve had. This made me realise that it’s ages since anyone congratulated me on my weight loss. I think that is a really good thing because it means my weight is stable and people are now used to seeing me this way.

So to everyone, no matter what stage you’re at in your wls journey, here is to 2016. May it be a great year for all of us.

Hi Chris, and happy new year!

You have made such an interesting and valuable point about no longer getting compliments anymore.

Some people get upset when they no longer get compliments but I am entirely in agreement with you! If people are no longer mentioning it, we have become ‘normal’! It’s what I told Shaw Somers I was hoping to achieve. Normality and freedom from worrying about my weight all the time. Reaching the ‘sweet spot’ is fabulous – so liberating.

At the beginning of last year, I gained 10lbs from having to take steroids. No one noticed. As from yesterday (when I weighed myself to see if there was any festive damage!) I have lost not only that 10lbs but another 10. No one noticed. Not even me!

I could never have imagined in my wildest dreams that I could feel normal about my weight. Wls is a powerful tool. When I saw you last month you looked absolutely fantastic. You have worked really hard for your success and long may it continue – whether or not anyone notices haha!
