    Hi everyone.

    Well, five years ago today I had my gastric bypass with Mr Shaw Somers of Streamline Surgical.

    I’m 15st lighter, happy and working for the man who saved my life. It just doesn’t come any better than that does it? I could not have done it alone, of that I am certain. A huge THANK YOU to you all. You have supported me through some very bleak times and I’m forever grateful for your unwavering help and friendship. xxxx

    This is what can happen with weight loss surgery. Trust your surgeon, follow the guidelines, do your best, put yourself first for once and be kind to yourself.

    Thanks lovely people.

    My journey was only ever about getting healthy. Healthy is a better look than half dead haha! I’m very lucky that the people in my life who love me have always loved me and always will. I have never been made to feel ‘inferior’ or ugly due to my size. I have always felt loved and no amount of money nor even wls can buy that ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Thank you SO much. It’s about teamwork this wls thing. Yes, we do the hard work but its made so much easier with the help of everyone else. This forum is a lifeline. A place to feel empowered. For some of us, it may be the first time in years that we feel we are truly being listened to and supported. That cannot be overestimated in it’s positive effect. When we feel strong, we become strong. I truly believe that. It’s about becoming mentally tough again. Even if we only manage it 90% of the time, its still enough to keep the momentum going forward. My Sister is a member of the Military Wives Choir. Their motto is ‘Stronger Together’. It is totally true.
