I was really happy with the weight loss following the gastric bypass, and I lost 9 stone in total. I decided against the banding because I needed to feel the weight would stay off. Nobody told me the weight would creep back on.
I feel so low and useless and end up now on a cycle of: look in the mirror hate myself, have a biscuit, then hate myself for having no willpower and have another biscuit.
Needless to say, comfort food has helped to put 2 and a half stone back on. I feel fat and ugly and my confidence has gone again.
