Oh Vicky, I wish I could hug you right now. I know exactly how you feel.

The need to ‘blend in’ with the crowd when you are big is overwhelming and it is hard to imagine that in a year’s time, you will want to stand out from that very same crowd!

J K Rowling said this:

“Is ‘fat’ really the worst thing a human being can be? Is ‘fat’ worse than ‘vindictive’, ‘jealous’, ‘shallow’, ‘vain’, ‘boring’ or ‘cruel’? Not to me.”

It takes an intelligent, hard-working successful woman to really understand human nature and all it’s faults.
She is 100% right. Yet she has never been big.

I truly believe that people who berate others about their size are covering up the terrible inadequacy they feel about themselves, and, let’s face it, big people are easy sitting targets.

As for the waiting, I promise you it will pass. I was turned down for wls twice so all in all it took two YEARS! The thing to do is never give up. Ever. Factor in the waiting as part of the plan. If you can get to a support group then I highly recommend it. I look forward to it every month. It is like a comfort blanket. A place where no one, and I mean no one. will judge you.

Please don’t hide away again. Come here and talk to us. We understand, Plus – you have so much to offer others! Our perspectives are all unique and your opinion about something might be just the one someone else finds useful!

I’m glad you have returned and I hope you are too.

Beautifully put, come on Vicky you just don’t realise what a lovely person you are!
