Hi,
I had my bypass last March at St Richards and I am now 9 stones lighter and have my life back, I have never regretted having it done. I always knew it was not a magic wand that you just waved and all your weight went away and that I would have to work at it but I have been given a tool that I can work with and boy I am determine to work with it. It is not every day that you get this chance in life. I have been a “big” girl all my life from a baby and right through my adult life with the odd moments of loosing weight with all the diets out there but I have never managed to keep the weight off and it has gone back on plus an all full lot more. As I said this is not a miracle cure and yes I have had the odd gain and yes I am coming to the end of my “honeymoon” period and I am now having to work at the weight lost but I now make the right decission of what I put in my mouth as I know that if I don’t or I over eat I have a not very nice reaction and that I can do without, as for exercise that is a choice I made myself as that is up to the person if they want to exercise or not and I want to exercise, something I have never done before in my life not even at school if I could get out of it I would now I like exercising, walking, swimming and even some gym work but as I said that is my choice.
A whole new world has opened up to me, a world I never knew before and still wouldn’t if I had not had the op and I am going to embrace it as much as I can, so if I gain a little or stop still weight wise I will face it head on and I know it won’t be such a struggle as before as I have been given a tool to help and I have a great back up team with all the staff down at St Richards and my new found friends on here who have been with me all the way on this incredible journey.
