I am going with the hospital group the same as you and I am at Birmingham.
The holiday is over, cut down really did plenty of walking,swimming I live in hope that my weight is down ready for the op. Been thinking of you today avin the op mine is coming up quick now I CANT WAIT !!! Not been to see the doctor but I am not worried about it I am doing it for me anyway besides I am fed up of trying every diet on the planet and getting nowhere.
Please let me know how you get on x
