    Thankyou so much for your kind words and wishes,
    I just cant bring myself to commit to this, So once again I will jump on the diet bandwagon and do it the old fashioned way.
    Actually I like the opitfast, so maybe this will work for me ...

    Shelli- I will look into my gurgleing tummy, but, after I posted this morning it all stopped go figure!

    I appreciate your honesty everyone, in that I'm not alone making this decision and that you have all struggled in some way also,

    Thanks again

    I'm currently booked in for the 25th of October...
    I will have to cancel my surgery as I dont think I'm ready
    The thought of having a plastic band inside my body forever freaks me out...
    My head says " Yeah this is the answer to all my problems", I was even considering a sleeve instead.
    but ...
    Ever since my first visit, my stomach has been gurgling and feels like a pit of boiling acid...
    I have been feeling panic and anxiety ,not sleeping, waking through the night with severe stomach cramps...
    I'm sorry to put this on you all... but...
    Hubby is doing his best to ignore the whole experience,
    So you are my best outlet.. Sadly I feel like a failure,
    I havn't even started the journey and i'm jumping ship already...
    Hope I didnt bring you all down
    Good luck to everyone with your journeys!!!
    Maybe in twelve months I'll be more prepared who knows
    Thanks for listening

    This is how I feel and is not meant to influence anybody else's decision

    Yeah!... I hear you...
    Making the DECISION is as tough as yo -yo dieting,

    Sorry I dont have any advice to offer as I dont get done till the end of the month,
    However I do offer positive thoughts...

    Good luck with the payment plan...

    Wow that was awesome...
    Fantastic tip!
    I have just had a cat scan on my liver as it apparently inflamed, and is not functioning properly... and i also have some sort of spot? I dont have my results yet so ... I just have to wait till the doctors ring me... No I'm not a big drinker.
    However all that you wrote is very enlightening thanks...
    I may have a build up of glygocen that needs to be shifted...

    Congratulations Dorrie,
    I think its great that you were confident enough to do this,
    no offence,
    Its just that I know how it has been playing with my head...
    an operation is nothing to take lightly...
    I know I'm ready now...

    Di again,
    WOW!!! Everyone is soooo! positive... and not ,no offence, as young as I had imagined. You guys have totally changed my mind set...
    Bring it on...! I'm ready.
    Torquaykate, you amaze me, if the band can do that much for you there is no reason why it wont work for me.

    Thanks for all the promt replies
    It makes me feel a lot better, I was wondering if I was a bit old to do this
    this will be the begining of a new chapter.
    I am sooo! excited, and sooo! terrified about the whole experience.
    Thanks everyone. ((hugs))
