It seems with most clinics it's 30 or under so maybe, just keep doing what you're doing to try and lose more. Being only 28 you've got plenty of time with the Nhs try and stay positive and I hope it goes well, make sure you take as many clothes off as possible when you get weighed and try not to eat too much before you go in. Good luck x


Thank u

I will be taking evey think off lol just mean a lot and I am worried as I just feel they keep pushing us bk will up date u on Monday it may go down by the time I go I hope


I had to lose some weight too and was really worried about it, but got there in the end. Do keep us updated :)


Hi lhow81

Hi how r u . Just Thought I would up date u as I went to the hospital on Monday and my bmi was 30 and they said I have to go bk in 4 weeks hope my bmi is down to 29. It is so hard but I will get they bk on it to moz as it was my birthday yeast day will keep u up dated x


It is tricky but you're almost there! A point on bmi is usually not that much in actual weight. I'd find a bmi calculator and work out what you need to lose! You can do it. Ty for your wishes on my other post xx



I'm in exactly the same boat.

I went hosp 2weeks ago my BMI was 31 was told to come back when is 30 I am now at 30 exactly so I have an apt Tomo morn :/ however I have just come on so scared I'll weigh more :(

The annoying thing is however well get referred will just be sitting on a waiting list for a while so plenty time to lose more weight, wish they'd just refer u if ur so close x

Also I am 5ft 2 and have natural G boobs with a size 14waist :( now I wish I had smaller boobs x lol

I now weight 11.10 and am praying they refer me Tomo xxxx

Ur apt must be coming up soon as I see this post is a lol old xxx

How u getting on xx
