Thanks Elaine. Have to admit to being a teensy bit nervous this time. There is absolutely no reason to believe that I will get an infection again but if I do, I know I can beat it.

You saying that you have nagging doubts about being able to loose all your excess weight sounds just like me at the same stage! It’s like studying for exams isn’t it? When you start the course you think ‘I’m never going to get all this in my noggin and keep it there!’ but it CAN be done. It just requires preparation and practice – exactly like weight loss after surgery.

Honestly, if I can do it absolutely anyone can. I’m just an ordinary person living an ordinary life, so if I managed it – so can you. The thing is to be kind to yourself. Be as kind to you as you are to everyone else. This is also the point in our lives where we need to put ourselves first. If I had a pound for every time we put ourselves at the bottom of the list of our priorities, I’d be very, very rich!

This forum is a godsend. It’s a place where every single person can identify with each other. It’s a given that we are all having to learn how to cope with food all over again. We don’t need to explain that part or feel the need to justify ourselves. What a relief.

Elaine, you have lost 6 stone in 6 months – exactly the same as I did. See? Stop worrying about whether or not you can do it: you already ARE! Well done that girl 😉
