Hello everyone, been looking at this site for a few months now and have finally decided to join. I'm having my gastric sleeve on Monday morning and I'm so excited about the rest of my life.
I've had a problem with weight most of my life and 7 years ago was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes. I've tried just about every diet know to man and everything works for a while and then the weight comes back on again. Been working hard at the gym for the last 3 years which has kept my bsl's fairly low but still overweight and not able to shift it (I think it's a brain thing!!!).
I've been taking Diabex for the last 5 years and have been told to stop taking it today and my Diabetes Nurse doesn't think I'll need to go back on it. How good is that??
Looking forward to getting to know some of you over the coming months and hopefully I'll be able to contribute a little as well.
Catch you on the other side!
