Love Kimberly x

My best advice to you would be to trust in the surgeon, the surgery, the team and yourself. You are all aiming for the same thing – a healthier, happier you.

Try not to dwell on what could go wrong but instead, focus on the positives. Also, do everything possible to make yourself healthier pre op.
Maybe START swimming a little, or gentle walking or even some sitting down exercises.
START to make lists – lots of them. Write down your goals so that you can tick them off one by one.
START your statistics: weight, measurements etc so that you have a frame of reference as you go through the various stages after surgery.
START a food diary so you will know when you feel the most vulnerable around food. Write a journal so that you will be able to see in black and white how much you are progressing.
START preparing to be a slim person

Finally, notice the word I have used the most – START. Don’t wait until you are on the pre-op diet (which is in my opinion is the actual day your new life begins!) but make a start now. It means that in your mind, you journey will already be well under way.

Hope this helps. If you wish to know absolutely anything else, please just shout.
