Hi Folks,

1. Why, if self funding, don’t you need to have counselling?
2. Currently, food plays an important part of my life, so what will happen to me when I can’t have what I want? Will I have to learn not to want these things, or will it come naturally?
3. When I get bored, the first thing I think is, what can I have to eat? What will stop me having this problem post surgery? Or will I magically stop thinking about food?
4. Now for some surgical questions, at my meeting with Guy,and at seminar with Chris, they both said that for people with a sweet tooth, the bypass is the preferred option. I want to know why this is?

I think thats enough for now! Hoping I get some answers soon, as my mind is buzzing with all sorts and I am having trouble concentrating on anything.


In short, you will become so much more active and engaged with both life and living again that you will realise the following:

Food is not your ‘friend’ it is a means to keeping healthy
You will be so busy out and about being ‘normal’ again that you won’t need food as a crutch anymore
You will be so delighted with your new, healthier body that the thought of sobotaging it will fade
You may have to be reminded to eat – hard to imagine but absolutely true

The other replies are brilliant.
