Thanks ladies,

I am really excited but not kidding myself as I know it will be hard work:)

QuirkyQuaintrelle I am having surgery in September and I have going the slivers monthly for my month :)

I have just begun to read diaries as I think it will be helpful to prepare my head.

Since my family and best friends are in QLD I think this forum is going to be a huge support tool for me.

Thanks for the welcome:)

Hi rediscoverme and welcome to the forum! This is a fantastic site for support and encouragement and, of course, lots of inspiration! When are you booked in for surgery? I found it really helpful to join up with the applicable Sleevers Monthly thread so I could chat with people at the same stage of the process as me, and I spent hours trawling people's diaries so I could get my head around what to expect. I don't know where I would've been without this forum, especially in the early days. Best of luck on your journey and I look forward to seeing more of you round the forum :-)

Hi everyone,

So I booked in my surgery yesterday after a really long time thinking about it.

I have had problems with my health for over a decade and with those problems came the increasing kg's. 

I have tried many things including 6 days a week at the gym combined with a PT, dietitian which really improved my fitness but made no change to my weight:(

October last year saw me land in hospital with dangerously high Blood Pressure which is getting worse so enough is enough, bit the bullet and locked it in.

I am mostly looking forward to rediscovering my old self who has become somewhat buried more and more with every kg.

Anyway, I live in Perth and all of my family and close friends are in QLD so I think this will be a ket support tool for me during this transition.

I look forward to sharing my experience and "paying it forward" in a support role when the time comes.

 I am doing this for me and the chance at a happy and healthy future that will hopefully allow me to meet someone and have a family:)
