Can I join in please?!? I got down to 228lbs for my endoscopy in December but then over indulged at Christmas and now SERIOUSLY regret it. However, the last of the kid's chocolate is now gone (melted down and given away as flapjack over the weekend) so I want to get to under my endo weight - just in case I get the call... X

Size 14!!? Fantastic !!
You were little were't you? How did you manage to get funding? Your PCT must be very good. If all PCTs funded people at lower BMI's like yours i'm sure it would be much more beneficial. More of us would get help sooner and not get so big.
A size 14?? In my dreams...
Well done Neeta xx

Thanks Mrs Tickle.

I originally asked one of the surgeons who I work for to see me privately as I didn't think that I would tick all the required boxes. He very kindly said that he didn't want to take my money and told be to get a referral for the Balloon. I had always struggled with my weight and was up to 15.5 stones but thought that the Balloon wouldn't be what I wanted then on looking in to the band versus the bypass I realised that I wanted to go for the bypass. I already suffered with asthma and had family history of chronic heart disease with my father suffering with heart attacks and having a triple heart bypass some years ago and who before he died was diabetic so other inherited medical reasons were going to come my way and following blood tests I was told that I would myself be diabetic within five years if I didn't have the operation done. There were other people to see along the line like the psychologist but it is all history now and I am just grateful that I stayed with the fight to be heard and have my surgery. I think that my surgeon was on my side all along as I was so determined to have it done and at one point I gave him a private referral when the MDT had actually rejected my case and said no, "right well here is a private referral - when can I see you?" He new I wasn't going to give up and I am glad that I didn't. :D I would say to anyone who is thinking of giving up the fight - Don't, stay with it and fight for all you are worth, which is a heck of a lot!! xx

Ahh good for you Neeta!
I was 15st 8lbs when I started but because I had no medical problems I had to pay and am now stuck with a 3 year loan... Surely being more than 5 stone overweight is a medical problem in itself!!??!! But I guess we'll all get there one way or another! If I can get down to my goal weight it will be the best money I've ever spent! Xxx

Welcome Newcy !
Stefanie, I've amended your goal. well done for doing that. It's much more positive to acknowledge a little blip and set yourself something more reasonable and achievable.
Are you managing to fit any exercise in hun?

Neeta, That's an interesting and inspiring tale. I'm sure the NHS would save loads by doing these ops on people of your starting BMI. it's safer and now hopefully you'll never get diabetes-which is tones better than being in remission !

It ca n't be fat HD, so as Neeta says it must be fluid or -oter stuff. I'm having terrible trouble in the bowel department and it really does show on the scales. Also TOTM could be the culprit? stay strong-it will come off 1

Is this the day of the week that you get weighed. I was so fanatical about getting weighed and would get on the scales every day (sometimes more than once each day:sigh:) I now get weighed on a Monday morning before I do anything at all - even get a shower. Fingers crossed for you for Tuesday. Keep us posted. ;) xx

Thanks. Not sure what is going on with me!!! Weighed myself this morning and things are finally going in the right direction, thank goodness. I am exercising , cycling 8 miles most days, aqua fit and I have just joined a running club, * gulp* a year ago I would not even run for a bus, but I managed to run 2k on Wednesday, well run and walk, but it's a start. My thighs are sore today though!!! But he ho, no pain, no gain.
