Jen’s Gastric Sleeve
I weighed 70-80kg when I was 18. I started gaining weight after that and I was 150kgs for about 20years.
At 44 years of age I had high blood pressure, gallstones, kidney stones and arthritis in my joints. My weight was affecting me mentally and physically.
The heavier I became, the more depressed I became and I isolated myself from family, friends and the world. I would wake up in the morning and plan what I was going to eat that day. I would constantly eat and would not stop until I felt so full that I would feel sick and I would then have immense guilt and promise myself that tomorrow I would be better.
At work I came across as the typical jolly big person but in reality I was very depressed.
I then had a big health scare where I was taken to hospital as they thought I was having a heart attack. It was enough to scare me from not just thinking about having bariatric surgery but to knowing I now had no option.
I came and saw the team at …. and I knew very quickly that these people would help me to change my life. I had a gastric sleeve July 2013 and to date I have lost 80kg.
I cannot thank the team at …. enough for the help and support they have given me throughout my journey.
Weight Lost kg
Body fat reduced
Years since surgery
Life changing and life saving!
Now I enjoy life
This has been life changing and life saving for me. I am now off the Merry-Go-Round of diets and now on the Ferris-Wheel of life enjoying the endless view.
I no longer buy endless magazines and books on how to lose weight; I eat healthy foods and no longer large amounts to feel satisfied.
Lots of Clothes
All the clothes I couldn’t bear to give up when I put on weight I am now starting to fit back in to. I have never felt more energetic in all my life.
