Just thought I'd write a quick post, as I've found reading through lots of the conversations, really interesting and informative.
My surgery is next Tuesday, and I am feeling excited but nervous at the same time. I have spent my whole life losing weight and then putting it all back on again. I heard about this type of surgery only 12 months ago, and I must admit I never thought I'd take this step.
I've finally decided I can't continue to fight myself, and try to keep off this weight. In the past 30 odd years, I've not been able to, why would things change now.
So, 2015 is going to be the beginning of a wonderful new stage in my life [I'm in my fifties ... I figure I shouldn't leave this any longer!] and I'm hoping to be able to share my journey with people who have experienced the same life changing process.
I'm sitting here about to consume yet another Optifast bar ..... ummmmm I was only asked to do these for two weeks, so I'm sucking this up and not complaining!!!
