Hi

Just want to say hello to you all as this is my first ever post. My new life begins now!

Absolutely no problems so far. The feeling of not being hungry is quite incredible.

BMI was 39.1. at commencement of 2 week pre-op diet (01/09/16). Surgery (15/09/16). Have lost 24 pounds already.

Any comments welcome.

Thanks

Hi Silk, welcome.

Yes, the 'not hungry' thing is great isn't it. I still find myself 'grazing' through habit and have to stop and have a word with myself. Whenever I reach for food, I stop and ask myself 'am I hungry or am I doing this just because that's what I've always done?' It works, I graze less and less these days.

Where did you have it done?

I'm getting there and really happy with the way things are going. Ideally, I'd have liked to wake up the morning after my op a size 8 but hey, you gotta be realistic..... unfortunately. However, I can honestly say it's the best thing I've done. I don't feel deprived of food like I did on the many, many diets I've been on and feel this is completely sustainable as a lifestyle.

I'm enjoying being able to breathe again and shop in my favourite stores rather than 'fat shops' where they think because you're carrying a bit of timber, you're completely devoid of taste!

I've actually given up weighing myself, I know I'm losing weight because my clothes are drowning me. I'm not hung up on numbers, i'm just enjoying the journey and every time someone says to me 'wow, you've lost weight' it gives me much more pleasure than getting on the scales.
