Well they say what a difference a day makes but in my case it’s what a difference a year makes! It is hard to believe that this time last year I was starting my pre op diet – still one of the hardest things I’ve ever done.
What a journey it’s been. I’ve tried on more clothes than ever before, hiked up mountains, walked for miles upon miles and lots more. I just read my previous diary updates…………….. was that really me? I feel like a new person. I have so much more get up and go and I am now so confident and happy.
I really can’t begin to tell you how much the sleeve procedure and the support from the NOSC team has changed my life. I feel healthy and even opt for healthy, wholesome food choices now when at home or eating out.
I still enjoyed my food over the Christmas and New Year period. I ate what everybody else ate but just in smaller quantities. You don’t feel deprived having had this procedure because you feel satisfied on smaller portions of food. It’s great.
So, they say that the proof is in the pudding – well I am definitely the proof that this procedure does work. Twelve months ago I was a size 22. As I sit down to write this update I am 5 stone lighter and wearing a size 10! I’ll never be the Christmas pudding again!
If you are considering this procedure, my advice would be don’t wait like I did, because believe me, it’s the best thing I have ever done and it will be the best thing that you have ever done too!
Here’s to a healthy and happy 2017!
