Politely and kindly said there Martine .. well said! and I agree with you entirely

Wow you said nothing about that.  I know nothing about this surgery in terms of how it works long term.  I hope it works and gives you the time to change eating habits for life.  The thing I find about weight loss is, losing it is actually the easy part (yup depressing I know).  Keeping it off is what I will spend the rest of my life doing.  I actually have changed my habits.  As much as I would love to devour a block of extra mature cheddar, or demolish a jar of peanut butter on toast, or rustle up a bowl of home made cheese and onion mixed with a whole jar of mayo, I have to just not go there.  But, as my weight fluctuates with holidays or just having a night out, I actually find myself lowering my weight before events so as to just bring myself up to my now normal weight of around 9st (that's 126lb) after a blowout.  Yes I do it occasionally otherwise it would be too much to bear.  I don't mind keeping my weight in check but I do look forward to things as well.  I just ready myself or lose any excess weight gained immediately.  Don't let it linger or it is added to then added to then the dreaded long term diet is needed again.  My diet saw me drop a whopping and embarrassing 120lb but I love now saying that I really am just half the person I used to be lol  You will too.

Good luck and well done you, and I'll say no more as I'm sure that you are being advised by the hospital/medical team on how to do this properly.  I would love to see your before/after pics too.  But I bet there is a massive difference now.  Not just in how you look but how you feel.  Keep some of your 'fat' clothes.  I have jeans and a top tucked away and they are an excellent deterrent to keep me on track.  Downside though ....... it costs a fortune constantly replacing your wardrobe as clothes become tents, but so satisfying picking up clothes from the front of the rack and not the biggies at the back [biggrin]

Ah Haggie... if losing it is the easy part then I'm doomed. Putting it on is so easy - takes a day to put on 10 pounds - but losing... starvation, torturous exercise, and demonic deprivation and the scale won't budge. But you're the living testament that it can be done and now Kasey has had the courage to take action, too. I'm impressed by you both. I found some photos of myself at 21 recently and almost wish I had a time lapse of how I got to be how I am now - it would be a weird and scary movie! If I could go back I would start working out when I was that age and never give up.

Yeah in all honesty Helen it all happened quite quickly really .. with in a month of seeing the surgeon and me making my mind up it had all happened, there was no rush from them though, it was all my decision  ... then the recovery period. This Saturday (24th) it will be four weeks since ive had the op.  I didn't say anything to anyone because I think in my mind in the past many times I have taken action in one way or another and told people and failed that for some reason I had it in my mind that I might fail this op in some way ... silly I know because its not like once ive had the op I can physically over eat anymore .. that cant happen now but my mental mind set is still set up to fail. 
I have a wonderful nutritionist on stand by, if ever I need any help I just email her and she will give me a ring, plus if I start to get any psychological problems creep in at a later date then ill definitely seek out some kind of counselling so ive covered all my corners.  I can also email my surgeon any time I want and he would get back to me ... PLUS the hospital holds monthly meetings for any of us either pre surgery or post surgery to attend with nutritionist , nurses and sometimes our surgeon there to speak to, so I shall make full use of that too.
 What ive had done is such a drastic thing but I just could not get control of myself.  I so wished id had your will power and determination ... You really inspired me.
Ive kept all my fat clothes so far but ill definitely do what you said and keep a couple of key things to compare in a years time or so. I don't have jeans to use for comparison though, ive not been able to wear jeans in over 20years, in fact my youngest has never seen me in a pair of jeans lol so she's excited for that day when it comes.  She's been going to slimming world for a while now and has lost over 2st so she's kept all her size 14s that don't fit her now for me when I get to that size.
So far I'm 42lbs down but ive got 84lbs (6st)  to go, so a long road ahead  yet .. I'm getting there though [smile]
