Pleased With This Loss !

For once in my life, I have been glad to have succumb to a massive loss. As most of you know, at the end of June, I underwent life changing surgery in order to attempt to shed some of my excessive weight ! After a period of 4 months, I can report that my total loss so far is 9 stone. To say I am surprised is an understatement; to say I'm delighted would be stating the obvious. After three very trying years, I am now finally feeling much better physically, but also mentally and have a more optimistic outlook on life. I hope to return to work soon after Christmas (when the Docs give me an all clear), and generally want to get on a bit more with things.

From a personal point of view, I'd like to thank all my mates and associates at Scoop Troop and DUPS for all the support and good wishes over what has been a traumatic year. The outcome, of course has been worth the effort, and it feels better than more or less anything, to have been given this new lease of life, and dare I say it ... a second chance !

(Sorry it's a bit off topic; just felt like sharing my news !)

I'd imagine the rest of the weight should now simply fall off, until to you return to whatever your "natural" weight would be. I always felt, though often wouldn't ever dare discuss with you, that if you just get a bit more active, it would come off. The problem being of course, that when you were as big as you were (and with the leg issue that you kept secret from a lot of us!) it was nearly impossible to do anything, even walking up the stairs. Now that you are mobile again, that's got to help a lot and I'm assuming you've got used to the new diet and all, given you've got this far with no complications, so I hope I'm correct i nassuming that the hardest of the hard work is now done?

Keep up the good work and keep off the ridic weight, corpulent n00b.
