    I cannot believe that it will all be over this time next week, it has taken two years to get here but I am almost there, how good is that. I have one more day at work and then a few days to sort things out, cleaning, washing and a bit more cooking for when we come home and taking the boys (dogs) to the kennels. I have lost a stone and a half up to now on the milk diet, although I gained two pounds this morning, what is that all about? Since last August I have lost six stone, so I feel that I have done my bit.

    Done your bit?! I think you have done yours and several other people’s bits, Lelly!!

    I’m truly so excited for you. A whole new world of being healthier, happier and more energised is just around the corner. I LOVE this stage. It’s the very best part of my job – knowing what fab things lie ahead for you!!

    I can’t believe how quickly the time has passed, even though it might not seem like that to you. Get ready for take off Lelly! Your rocket to the stars is preparing for take off….

    It’s hard to believe isn’t it? Sitting in that waiting room on 16th January. Goodness me didn’t it rain that day!! But here we are, you less than a week away from your op, me, four weeks away from pre-op. We have been through so many ups and downs over the months, but we are so nearly, nearly there, at our new beginnings. I am so proud of you, and so honoured to have shared this journey with you x x x

    Aww thank you lovely, it has been a little fractious at times hasn’t it? It has been an honour for me too, I never knew how important you would become to me when we shared e-mail addresses on that MDT day. You are an amazing lady and yes, I am so proud of you too. looking forward to seeing you on Wednesday Sis.

    Being scared is entirely natural. If you weren’t, I would worry that you hadn’t thought it through enough!

    We should have the ‘Countdown’ music on here to play every day. Can you imagine having that played over the public address system as you walk to theatre lol!

    I have made lifelong friends via wls. It’s one of the things they don’t tell you in the ‘official’ guidelines. But I think it’s one of the most valuable things that wls gives us! Like a pebble in a pond, I have made friends I met through friends, forums, support groups and many other ways.

    I have friends I consider to be friends for life that I haven’t even met in ‘real’ life yet. I have even made friends from other continents who have then gone on to make friends with my friends here! I have a friend from the USA I met a few years back. She is now friends with my school friend as they have a shared love of Formula One Racing!

    It (wls) really, really is the gift that keeps on giving. I’m so happy for you both. 🙂
