    WATER BOTTLE HOLDER HANDS FREE ADJUSTABLE SHOULDER STRAP FOR WALKS AND TREKS | eBay

    I’m posting this link everywhere at the moment! Water bottle holder to wear across the body. Lightweight, no zips, buttons, buckles etc and water is to hand all day long. I bought them for all my family as everyone needs to drink more in hot weather.

    I recommend them highly. Sip, sip, sip ๐Ÿ™‚

    Just popping in quickly to say thank you to you all for your support over the last few days! I have had some real ups and downs with the milk diet, but I can now honestly say that I am enjoying it! I have found a few “hacks” to keep it fresh and interesting, and I have today realised that I have actually found it quite a life changing experience! I have always been a binge eater, and always been anxious about making sure that the next meal was organised, but I have gone over a week without being tied down by these things, and it feels really, really good! I am going to really appreciate these last few days of milk, and relish in how proud I am of myself :cheer2:

    I am absolutely DELIGHTED with this post Vick!! You have made such an important point – you have unshackled yourself from food and it is no longer calling all the shots! I’m SO proud of you. This has made me very, very happy. I wish I could give you a hug right now. Take what you have learned forward with you onto the next stage and be just as successful.

    Well done that girl ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thank you Doodah, that means so much to me. I will never forget this experience, it has been such a special time…in fact…I wasn’t sure about sharing this or not, as it makes me sound a bit crazy, but I already have a reputation anyway, so here goes…

    It dawned on me recently that I had roughly a nine month wait from my MDT to operation date, and then I realised that for the last couple of weeks I have been putting myself into almost a state of confinement, staying closer to home generally, taking time to really think and build up to my big day. Then with all the preparations like making the meals for when I get home, I described that part as the nesting. After I have had my operation (Did I mention it’s NEXT TUESDAY?!? LOL), I will be bringing the new me home. I have always told me that the relearning to eat post operation is a bit like weaning..It was only after I put all of these things together that I realised that in many ways, this process, for me at least, has been a bit like having a baby. And that is true in way, it’s a new me. It’s a chance to reset, relearn, develop, and live, and I really, really can’t wait!!

    See, told you I would sound crazy didn’t I?!?!

    Far from it. In fact, you are so RIGHT that surgery day becomes the new birthday for many people. They truly feel like they have been re born. Some even get a tattoo of their surgery date. It is exactly like being re born. Which is why we have to be so kind to ourselves. You would not scold a baby or small child if they made a mistake with food because they are learning. It’s the same principal for us after wls. We are learning so we must be kind to ourselves. Firm but fair.

    This week is flying by and it will soon be YOUR time, Vick! I love this bit of the process! I can’t wait to hear all about it ๐Ÿ™‚

    Very well put Vickster & so very true. It really is like weaning yourself. Please remember for the future if it’s time to take a step forward & you either don’t feel ready or try but it doesn’t work don’t be afraid to take a step back. It doesn’t mean you’ve failed it just means you’re not ready. I remember taking a couple of steps back in fact I still do every now & then.
    Everyone is different & guidelines are just that guidelines so follow them the best you can within your own limitations.some steps forward are a bit scary but it’s worth giving it a try.
    Wishing you all the very best for your “rebirth” & congratulations x we are all here for you xxx
