    Fantastic post Squeaky. Honest and true. It will help so many people.

    You should feel very, very proud of yourself. You are working hard to change YOU and I know from bitter experience that is the hardest thing in the world to do. I had three years of therapy to help me to seek out and find the old me – the one who didn’t need food as a crutch, didn’t give up after the first hurdle and could give a flying fig what other people thought of me. I guess I have found my voice again. Wls is so much more than getting lighter isn’t it? I weigh the same now as I did when I was 17 and, ironically, that was the age I was most confident.

    Keep going. That is all any of can do….our best, our very, very best.

    And gee whizz my legs hurt!!! Hopefully this means they’re a little more toned… Been having a hard 2 weeks feeling quite stressed bout food but had a great chat with lovely dietician who helped me realised I’m really thinking too much about what I’m eating… I’m so obsessed with not going wrong this time I’m starting to get a little obsessed with not eating too much … And for the first time in my life that’s actually NOT a good thing!!! Who’d have thought???!!! She helped me realise I need to trust in my surgery and not completely obsess about every little thing I eat or I’ll just end up being a little crazy (well crazier than normal) its a fine line this learning to eat properly but not going mental!! Good job I have a great dietician 😉 xxx

    It’s so hard to break the habits of a lifetime isn’t it?

    I have never once counted calories and instead put 100% faith in the surgery. It worked.

    Ah doodah you are so right. These habbits of a life time are hard to break. I never count a calorie or fat or sugar any more I just rely on the operation and my instinct. I am nearly 2years post op on 6 october 2012. squeakyfruitbat trust me you’re doing great. Mind you I am still obsessed with the scales and weigh my self regularly. You’ll get there squeakyfruitbat love the name. LOL. X

    Janie don’t panic it will come off! That’s another thing my dietician said… You have to trust the laws of science … Eat less calories than you expend… You will loose weight!!! Body just needs time to adjust and stops on occasion. I’ve list 4 stone and still panicking its slowed… Why is it we can give all the advice in the world but can’t take our own good advice!!! Xxx

    Great to hear that. Our heads can lead us where our bodies don’t want to follow: it’s how we got into this pickle in the first place. We have to learn to only listen to the good advice but my life it takes some practicing!!
