    Hi all,

    Had my appointment with Chris Pring yesterday, unfortunately he was not there, but I saw the lovely dietician and a nurse Lisa, I am doing just fine lost nearly stone and half so thats great news, I did not think I had lost that much as my stomach is still tender and bloated and i am unable to do excercise as i would like to, so i was thrilled with the weight loss, the pain I am getting the nurse is going to speak to chris and maybe it could be adhesions, he will telephone me and let me know what is needed to be done Lisa said maybe a CT scan, but I am to carry on as I am for the mo, lots of love to you all Penny xxx

    Hi Penny, your weight loss is fabulous, well done to you. Sorry to hear you still have pain. It could just be that your ordinary post op discomfort is lingering stubbornly but it sounds like your team are keen to investigate it properly, which is good. I hope you get to be able to exercise the way you want soon. For me, just being able to walk around easily was such a boon. These days , I never worry about stairs or hills. I’m no lover of the gym but I go swimming from time to time and I walk at least an hour a day. My dog loves me even more than before because of his extra wwalkies.

    I’m really sorry to hear you are still in a lot of discomfort. However, your weight loss is brilliant! The team will be on it like a comet. Exercise is not quite as important at this stage and it’s counterproductive if you are in pain (in my humble opinion.) Keep going and things will soon all fall into place.

    Well done on your hard work so far 🙂

    Hi all.

    Just thought I would pop in and say hello and to find out if any of you newbies are worrying about your first holiday away after weight loss surgery.

    It can be quite scary when you go abroad for the first time after wls. My first trip was to Corfu (it was actually Ireland but I’m not sure that counts as I have been so many times?) and the trickiest bit was – eating at the airport and on the plane!

    As we all know, the food in Greece is almost always healthy so I stuck to salad. Feta, goats, mozzarella and a very small amount of Parmesan made up most of my meals but for non veggies, Greece is heaven. Everything is cooked slowly and is super tender. I was never refused a tiny portion and when I was given bottled water that I didn’t drink, I got to take it back with me.

    I think a first post wls holiday abroad should be carefully considered. My thinking was – no long haul, nice and warm (always cold, even now!) and a country where freshly prepared food was the norm. I thought that if I went somewhere that I felt was ‘familiar’ food wise, I would not be stressed about it. That’s why I chose Corfu. Not only is Greek food healthy but Corfu has a very Italian ‘feel’ to it and I am lucky enough to be able to eat pasta with no problems

    Anyway, I’d love to hear all about any plans you have this summer. I know Chris had a really epic trip abroad this year which proves that wls doesn’t have to be restricting in any way at all. In fact, the complete opposite is true. Now where is that Lake Garda brochure…….?
