Thanks ever so much Jiffypop!
Well the hardest part was the first 8 weeks, getting used to eating hardly anything and feeling a slight sadness that I couldn't gorge my food anymore or eat massive meals, somedays, I feel like I could eat a whole plate of food lol and then a few mouthfulls and i am stuffed, Its the head thing, Getting my head around thinking differently, But I do feel a lot better now and I am getting there one day at a time. x

Very well done, but such drastic surgery, I had no idea GP's would refer you at 15 stone something? I'd miss eating too much plus i'd have been too scared!!

Thanks everyone for your kind words.

Hi Michelle,
My GP Never refered me, I went private, It was eating to much that got me to my heaviest weight to begin with and I was fed up struggling on diets for 20 years, I wanted to make a permanant lifestyle change so that I could be Healthy for once and for all and to stay this way for the rest of my life,
Its been the best decision I have ever made and feel so much healthier.

Great job! You should be so proud of yourself.

I lived in London for awhile, what part of the UK do you live in? If you think that's too nosy you don't have to answer!
