Hi everyone, my name is Soolie, I am 52 years old and have battled with my weight all my life. I can not do this on my own anymore... I have done Weight Watchers, Slimming World, hypnotherapy - you name it I've tried it and athough I have initial success I just CAN NOT keep at it. I lapse and end up heavier than when I started. I am miserable, I dont look in the mirror any more, not really, I certainly dont see the fat lump that I have become - I am 227lbs and am lazy and immobile, just because everything takes so much effort. I am small comparted to some, but hey, its all relative. I've made the decision to have a gastric band and had my first consultation on Monday 10th February and am now booked for surgery on 11th March in London.

I am worried about my health, I've given up smoking at last, and now fear diabetes etc as I get older. I am very happily married but have no kids, so no one to look after me when I get old and grey !

I am excited and scared in equal part - and have joined this forum for support and information from all you good people. I want to share this journey with you and desparately want you to tell me your stories and how its worked for you.

Love and best wishes to you all as we travel this path together xxxxxx
