Hi Guys

I have my first pre op appointment with the fabulous Mr Nicholas Bennett at the Spire, Portsmouth on Thursday 24 January! My operation is scheduled for 21 February.

On that day, the last remnants of my old life as a super morbidly obese person will be removed. Ok, I could still do with having my ‘unfilled balloon’ legs fixed and my turkey neck sorted out but they don’t matter. They don’t inerfere with my life and cause me no pain or discomfort. If I won the lotto, I would probably have them looked at but I have absolutely no intention of ever again selling my soul to the bank manager for it!!

So, the final phase of my journey is almost upon me. It will have been a five year battle by the time everything is done. It’s such a weird feeling. I sometimes forget that I was that person yet at other times I still feel huge. I still check out chairs at restaurants. I still avoid trying to shimmy between two parked cars and I will always pray that the seatbelt will be long enough!

I want to thank you all again for the amazing support and friendship you have shown me. I’m not always an easy person to love or like as I am so outspoken and frank, but knowing I have a place I can rant and not be judged is like having my own fleet of guardian angels on my side. THANK YOU xxx
