    Hi all,

    Im sure by now most of you are aware that I had a gastric band privately fitted last March. The band is there to simply stop me from over-eating, it doesnt do anything else and like anything I have to work at loosing the weight by making the right choises and exercising.
    Its my last visit to see my Consultant tomorrow (before I have to start paying to see him).
    He will weigh me and take my measurements before giving me my final tally and I am so excited!
    I know I've lost weight..heck just over 5 stone, but I want him to see the difference in me too!
    No real reason for my thread, other than to share this with you and to ask that you keep your fingers crossed for me tomorrow!!
    Thanks for reading!

    Thank you all for your words of encouragement.

    No, the band definitely wasnt an easy option, but it was really the only way out for me. I love the SW plan, but if someone says that you can have unlimited amounts of something as its a "free food", to me that was a challenge!
    Now I dont have that, my body now tells me when Im full, I now have limits and I know what I can and cant eat....roll on tomorrow!

    I bet you can't wait to see the look on your consultant's face. You swank your way in there swinging your hips! :D

    I've seen a dietician and my first follow up appointment was great. Not because he could actually tell I'd lost weight because he didn't really know me and had only seen me once before, but because of his face when he checked the scales and saw I'd lost almost 3 stone.

    Take your camera, your consultants face will be a picture worth taking LOL.

    Enjoy your success tomorrow!!

    Aw... that's brilliant. That's going to be a moment you live again and again... your consultant is going to be so pleased with you!! I'm sure many people are given the same chances as you but don't take the responsibility for themself like you did. Your doctor will be so pleased to see that you accepted his help to get the ball rolling, but completed the rest of the journey on your own steam. You should be very proud of yourself!
