    You are in NO WAY the biggest moaner in the group. I think that particular (dubious) crown is actually mine haha!

    My old Uncle, Gordon Bennett, (yes that really was his name!) was the best moaner of all time. he used to mumble ‘Stuff my old boots’ before moaning about everything from being served tea in a non bone china cup, to the fish not biting when down on the beach. He was adored by us all. A true eccentric.

    Anyway, back to the point…moaning to people who truly understand and care is cathartic and, therefore, should be encouraged.

    A little excitement for me today. Today was the day that the first person asked me if I had lost some weight, and this person doesn’t know I’ve had surgery. It gave me a real boost, not that I’m in need of a boost, I’m happy and I feel well.

    Another milestone is that I am today 4 weeks post op so can now introduce soft foods, which felt a bit odd after 2 weeks of milk and 4 weeks of puree. In fact I felt a bit apprehensive about taking on anything new in case I wasn’t ready. Anyway I made a scrambled egg for my tea and really enjoyed it.

    And I believe I have my profile picture up now so you can all see me!

    That moment is PRICELESS. So different form all the years of losing weight and no one even noticing! I’m so happy for you.

    ps I can see the profile pic and you look fantastic. I think you need to upload an avatar too as profile pic and avatar are not the same thing.

    Hi again

    Yup that was it, I just didn’t realise the difference between a profile pic and an avatar, doh!

    Well today a second person asked about my weight loss so it must be true, and I’m wearing a pair of trousers that I can’t remember when I last had on. So Kimberly, I suppose that counts as a first, wearing clothes that were previously too small. With regard to other things, I wrote a wish list before my surgery. All my wishes are there waiting to be achieved as yet but I’m looking forward to ticking them off as I continue this journey. And of course looking forward to sharing them with all you lovely people. This really is a great forum for help and support. As I’ve said before, because I’m miles away, the chances of me getting to the support groups are minimal, so it is great to feel I can have as much contact as I want as often as I want with others.

    One other thing is that although all my surgical woulds are healing well, one of my stitches had failed to dissolve and it has been driving me up the wall with itching and irritation. Thankfully, today I managed to thoroughly investigate with tweezers and a magnifying glass and was able pull quite a long length of thread free, oh the relief was wonderful.

    Love Chris xx

    Glad you got you pic sorted and now we can all see how fab you are looking!

    I had a stitch like that in my gum last year after an horrendous wisdom tooth extraction (fractured jaw!) and it drove me up the wall day and night haha! It was almost as bad as the pain – how ridiculous is that?!

    I sold my big clothes on eBay and made over £300! Plus size clothes go very, very quickly. Well worth the effort 😉
