    Had my first appointment today at Castle Hill hospital in Hull When i got there they weighed and measured my height, took my blood pressure and made me walk around for 2 minutes. Then we had a group meeting with 3 other men, then we split up and had 3 other meetings, the first was dietician- Beryl, then Dr Muhammad and finally a psychologist called Marie.

    Yeah I've got an appointment on the 6th with dietician. I need to work on only eating 3 balanced meals a day. Need to lose 5% of weight in 6 months then keep it off for another 6.

    Went to my 3 month teir 3 appointment yesterday, lost weight but didn't reach my 3 month goal . Gonna have to try harder for the 6 month weigh in.
    Anyone one else get stuck in a waiting room with really loud moany people, it was all soon and gloom. "I don't want surgery I dont want to look like a skeleton" or talking about dieing during surgery or " my friends friend had a bypass and been sick after every meal for 2 years" . I was happy to get away from them after 30 mins of it.

    Don’t let negative people get to you, this is the best thing you can do for yourself. My surgeon told me I have given myself more years of life, no arguing with that. Good luck to you xx

    You always get people who moan and are negative.
    You are focused on what you need/want so go for it x
