Seeing a surgeon next week

Recommended Posts

I've thought more and more on this, and think I will do it. Like I wanted to, I have lost some weight, a couple of kilograms over the last few weeks. This research process has taught me a few valuable lessons. But looking at how far I have to go, I know I cant do it alone. I know statistics are WAY against me losing 30kg and keeping it off.

So I'm seeing somebody next week, and I'm going to an information session Wednesday night.

I think I really needed a bit of extra time to get my head around just what this will mean long term, but I'm a bit more comfortable with that now. Boy you just dont realise how many emotions and psychoses are tied up with your weight until you really analyse it do you?

Jachut~ Good luck in your continued research! Get all the info you can and take your time in making your final decision on getting banded! it is definatly a life changing decision but one that you will feel good about making... but only when you know you are ready will it come to you that this is the right desicion... not one to hurry into!You will still feel worried but you will know it is right for you. It is only natural to feel anxious we have all been where you are right now and understand what your feeling. Follow your heart!!! Wishing you lots of success and happiness no matter what you decide!!

      I baked a gross of (144) chocolate chip cookies for the coffee break (fika) at work. The cool part was that I managed to not eat a single one of them. Not only that but I finished with my baking by 11pm and got up at 5am for my doggie walk before work. This time it was MUCH easier to skip the cookies since I was thinking about dumping in the back of my mind. That and the damn gremlins (oops I mean  grehlins) are on vacation at the moment.
