Paul, I think the trouble is that, for the first time in our lives, wls gives us the tool to get our excess weight off and keep it off. This is such an amazing feeling, we don’t ever want to give it up. I have a very close friend who has come down from 35st to 13 and he still wants to lose more. Everyone around him can see that he needs to lose NOTHING more and, if anything, needs to gain a few pounds. He is a young man (under 30) and is about 6′ 2″ so his weight is perfect (bet his excess skin makes 2-3st of his weight!) We constantly tell him that he should stop but he just can’t.

Now here is the scary bit. He was referred to a stroke clinic a few months ago. He is now beginning to make himself ill. Properly ill. He lives up North miles away from here and it worried the living daylights out of me. Fortunately, he hasn’t had a stroke but his health is beginning to suffer. He will have come full circle if he is not careful – his weight making him ill! he knows what he is doing but can’t seem to stop. However, he is young and can learn to address it.

This is why I went to therapy for three years before having my surgery. I needed to sort out my psychological problems before tackling my physical ones. I’m not saying I have it nailed.No-one with an eating problem/disorder/addiction ever does.

So, Paul, make sure you get all the help you need. I wish you all the luck in the world. You look terrific NOW 😉
