The Beginning of the journey

A bit about myself to start with, I am Julie, 24 years old. I am originally from France but i moved to Northern Ireland 4 years ago. I have been overweight as long as i can remember. After years of yoyo dieting without long term success, i have decided to have a gastric band operation.

The operation is on Monday 22nd February. I am flying to Brussels to have it done. I am very excited but at the same time a bit scared of the operation, I know it is a very quick procedure but I have a terrible fear of medical environnements.

Before making my decision i have read the journey of a lot of people on their blogs to know the truth about living with a band. I found that very helpful so I promised myself the day I was embarking on the journey as well, I would write a blog too. And here it is!


  1. February 22nd will be here before you know it! Welcome to the land of lap-band bloggers! There are a lot of fabulous people here that you can get a lot of invaluable information from! I look forward to following your progress!

  2. 14 days to go - yay I hope it goes well for you
