Yup another newbie here yo-yo dieted for years hindered by periodical ill health until finally i gave up on losing weight altogether, only to find that the weight loss could help me manage and eliminate some of the health issues.

Eventually my (current) GP suggested i go forward for Gastric Band on the NHS however i have decided why wait another 1-2 years just to get to the point of having the op, (how much more weight would i put on in that time) so went out sorted out a loan and saw a consultant yesterday. The op is now booked for the 9th Jan next year in the London Independent Hospital.
