    I’ve seen the surgeon who says a bypass is something he can do. Bloods all taken and now I’m waiting to see the dietitian and some group info meeting before I officially get on the waiting list.
    What scares me is being a fat bride. Really hope it’s not too much of a long wait before appointments. I’ve been a big girl since a teenager and just gained more and more weight after every baby. My youngest has just turned 1 and the thought of her growing up with a fat mum breaks my heart. Fingers crossed I get this op before I wed so we can all live happily ever after x

    What is tier 3? I’ve got to
    Complete it but all I’ve been told is too wait for an appointment through the post?! I’m also on the NHS in Kent and I know the waiting list can be quite long. Just hope I can get it done and out the way in time for my wedding.

    Oh right ok, well I’ll do whatever I need to do to it get through these hoops. How long did you wait to get on the tier 3 programme?
    Sorry to hear about your mum , I gained when I lost my Nan, food was my comfort.
    So are you officially on the list now?
