Hi Doodah,
I guess I have been one of the lucky ones and I have sailed through wls, from the moment it was put to me from my GP until the day I actually had my bypass (23th March 2011) I knew it really the only way forward for me (last chance saloon) without this help of my GP, the wonderful Mr John, the team at St Richards and not forgetting all the wonderful people on here I don’t know where I would be today but the fact that I have been given this chance( use to think things like this don’t happen to me)and this wonderful tool I would not be ten stone lighter now. My honeymoon period is over and I am having to work now for every single pound I lose but I am not fixtated on the scales and food like I was. Yes I get weighed once a week, (before I would be hopping on and off the scales throughout the day) I go to Weight Watchers, I am a helper there and have been for many years, they all know I have had a bypass, never made a secret of the fact and as I don’t have a support group here they my team mates and the members are my support network, they have been there when I have my down days and they share my sucess with me, so again I am lucky to have that. I know a lot of people have not been as lucky as I have and that is why when ever I can I will offer my support and advice and share my expriences on here. I have a friend who had her op back in September and she knows she can come to me for help if she needs it, in fact we are meeting this Saturday for a coffee, so if any one in my area would like to join us if PM me I will let you now where and when we are meeting.
I know I was ready for my op and I will always be extremely grateful that I was given this chance to get my life back.
