Hi Everyone! Just started my milk diet this morning, will hopefully having my gastric bypass next Saturday on the 8th February at Chichester with Chris Pring. Is there anyone else on the forum who is close to their opp date? If so , I would like to hear from you! My support friends cooked my last supper for me last night to wish me well. All healthy stuff. They are my friends and my going out eating pals! They have been learning about this journey I am about to begin and have watched me struggle with my weight since I have known them, 30 years +. They are wonderful and even come to the meetings with me when they can! I feel ready to start this new way of life now and I have been thinking about it for about 10 months now and finally plucked up courage and rang streamline in September last year! Since then I have been preparing and researching best I can for this life changing decision that I have made. My BMI is 40, height 5’3 and I have stage 1 blood pressure, but appart from that I am as healthy as I can be at this weight, 17 stone, and have had enough of struggling with my weight . I am 52 years old and realise that I need to look after myself better, it does make a difference to how you feel when you do! I feel that my weight is a burden to me, holding me back and is one of the first things I think about when I wake up in the mornings- I wish I wasn’t fat! I have failed many diets over my 35 year diet portfolio and was a large sized child. I am excited and quite scared at the same time now cos the opp is so close, and that there are no absolute guarantees that this will work for me long term but I am giving it my best shot. I put my trust in my surgeon and the streamline clinic and the advice I have been given also the lovely support I have received on this forum and especially the support meetings at Portsmouth Gunwharf Quays with Doodah! Highly recommended for everyone. Please say Hi. Julie x

Good luck Julie we will be thinking of you. X
