    Hi Kris,

    DO not panic! You are showing a real commitment to wanting to make the most of your surgery, any surgeon will see that. It is not wrong to lose weight, and the fact that you are already trying to make a difference can only be a good thing. I cannot imagine a situation where losing weight would not be considered a good thing…

    Obviously you need wls or you would not be referred, but it isn’t a magic wand and you do need to have commitment to make it work, and you are showing that. Good luck and try to stop worrying!
