Feeling pretty good. Been back at work for 3 weeks and have lost 2 stone 5llbs (that was on 1st april) scales are hidden as I was becoming a little obsessive!!

I have not struggled with food at all and am now on solids at the advice of the dietician – had my first cherry tom post op alst night !! Yum YUm

I will say that I am not someone who lost their appetite! This really scared me to start with and I can eat more than some – but it has been explained to me that as a revision from a band this is normal. It has taken a lot of willpower not to eat anything bad/overeat but the further I am out the more I am learning how to work with my pouch and it’s going great. (ask me that at 3am when i’m having a freak out and you might get a different answer !!). It is ceratinly a learning journey – you expect one thing and get another. I get hungry and have head hunger but I am very proud of myself for dealing with this – I can proudly say I have not eaten 1 crisp/chococlate item of crap food for 9 weeks today !! I am getting in over 2 litres of fluids a day and I have to say my skin looks amazing – this is actaully the one thing that people have commented on most – and for someone who’s always had spots this in itself is such a boost !
I am attending my weekly counselling and exercise and am regualrly talking to a dietician as i know i need this support to keep me on the straight and narrow

All in all pretty positive (with a few wobbles on the way !!)

I have to say I am mightily impressed at the way you are dealing with everything. You know the ‘danger’ areas and are being pro active in your reaction to them. Well done and keep doing what you are doing as it obviously works!
