I admit I have kept my op quiet, as far as everyone knows I have had a Hiatus hernia op. The only people that know are 2 of my very best friends, my parents, my sister, my eldest daughter and of course my wonderful hubbie. Everyone has supported me every step of the way. My Mum was really worried and wanted me to have the band, but once I reassured her that if i needed it reversed that Shaw Somers assured me that he could do it, she was fine. Mum was also really worried when I was being sick for those couple of weeks and not keeping anything down, but now that I am feeling really well and the weights coming off she has at last relaxed!! (MUMS eh!!bless) I don’t plan on ever telling anyone, but who knows? I may feel different in the future, but at the moment I am happy not revealing my secret. I have been very lucky, I have had fantastic support all round, but I have to be honest, the reassurance has come from my new family members of this support group, without you all, I don’t think I would have gone through with it. I was very scared about the op, but now think, that was the easy part!!

My reasons for keeping quiet about my decision is because I was convinced that I would be one of the ones that this wouldn’t work for, and I was terrified of people looking at me after spending £12,000 and think another failed weight loss attempt!. But, so far its going well and the weight is coming off and I am feeling great …… it all still seems very surreal!!
