Hi All, †
So I've been lurking around for a few weeks now reading, researching, googling and reading again. †First I must thank you so much for your honest and transparent posts. †I must say its reassuring to read the general consensus is that there is no regrets. †
I won't bore you with the pre journey (insert vomit emoticon)†story, †but would like to hear if anyone simply did not want the surgery. †I am a healthy eater accompanied with a steady flow of undesirable yummy comfort food and the inability to just stop feeding it into my mouth.†
There seems to be an all or nothing attitude with me and when I'm in 'The Zone' I consider myself quite the champion at clean eating and exercise. †When I exit The Zone, which seems to be every 7-9 kg of weight loss, I'm on the fast decline to hell again. †Serious back issues and blood clots are not contributing any positive influence hence the need for what I consider drastic action. †
My first consult with DR Braun, Everton Park is on 8th Dec 2015. †Probably surgery in Jan(?) at Northwest Private. † Fully self funded at the grace of Superannuation (Fancy being allowed to access my own money to save my life - Bless).
So my question is - Is there anyone who simply did not want the surgery to the point of changing their mind daily, yet went ahead. †What was the point you come to terms with it all and did you wish you didn't have it done. †I feel like I am constantly going to beat myself up for not being stronger and losing it without the surgery. I'm wondering if I should just tackle it all with the help of a Pysch and try to break the cycle.... †
Cheers for your time†
