Struggling just started on journey for gastric weight loss surgery

Posted , 1 user is following.

Finally got accepted for NHS weight loss surgery and had initial appointments . now been started on diet to follow which I'm finding so hard. it was originally 2 and half fortisips and day with a 400 cal meal and 200 cal snack. i couldn't handle the fortisips as they are so small and i was soooo hungry. so now on mostly food with one shake (one i found that was better) The problem is I'm still so hungry . im feeling like a Complete failure not had my first weigh in yet and i kbow its not going to be good. this is the first stage and I'm failing been told it will be 12 to 18 months before surgery. im not going to be able to do this for that long and if i could diet that easily i wouldnt need the surgery. i was really hoping for more support not just getting a diet sheet. is this the same for everyone . im with addenbrookes hospital. feeling so dispondent and dreading weigh in .
