Hi

I`m Karen and I have been lurking on here for quite a while now, so I have been brave tonight and actually written a post.

Actually sent off for a consultation but it was all done by email and they offered me Cardiff 5th July which is fantastic as i live in Weston - Super -Mare, great as i have 3 kids and im a full time student.
Ive only told hubby about this and considering telling my Mum and wont be telling anyone else as i have a jealous competitive sister that would just cause arguments, as i have lost weight doing various diets in the past and she`s still losing the 3 stone in 2013 that she was losing in 2007 I cant keep the weight off that my problem! Life is becoming hard and im 37..... I have 3 kids and the youngest is 2 and thats where the problems started piled loads of weight on with each pregnancy and its never left. I`m a full time student just finished my 1st year as a student nurse, i would ideally love to be able to have the gastric band in August, i would have finished my placement and i will be looking forward to my holiday in Tunisia, so i will be off for 8 wks and thats plenty of time to recover and get a tan
i wont write anymore a wee messge turned into a this ^^

Hi and welcome....I was like you and read these posts for weeks before I wrote for the first time...... I have my consultation next week, I can't wait to get started I am hoping its a quick turn around to get a date. I had to finance my own because it would take too long. I have never been this big in my life and no I will go up and up. I have been dieting for years with no luck, my health is suffering now and I know this will be the answer for me to kick start my life again. Good luck for your op and keep updating, it's a great site and the advice is great and HONEST x

Hi and welcome!

I can completely get where you are coming from with regards to the photos with your children. I have no photos of me with my youngest who is 3 and that makes me really really sad. my first aim is actually to have my photo taken with ehr for her bedroom this september on her 4th birthday - I know it will make her really happy:eek:

I am having the band fitted on the 9th June and i am currently on the pre-op milk diet. This forum is fantastic and a great help. ask away any questions no matter how silly they seem, there is so much knowledge on here
