My story
I have struggled with weight all my life. I have will power and have always managed to lose the weight but over time I found myself back at the starting point of having to shift all the pounds again. I was getting depressed, felt like keeping the weight off was a losing battle, felt like there was no point in trying to lose weight as I knew it would all come back again. I gave up on myself started eating even more as I wanted my body to break down. I was done...my saving grace came in the form of watching a documentary on gastric bypass...

My story
I'm 27 years old and married to my husband Andy we had wanted to start a family for 5 years we had been seen by the hospital and fertility clinic who said I was too over weight to be considered for any treatment also with other health issues the risks were too high, after waiting over a year on the waiting list It was heart breaking I was told I would need to make big changes to my life style to be considered for any treatment I tried many diets but it was never enough to even be considered for treatment after 5 years this was heart breaking. 

So in June 2016 I decided to have a gastric band weighing over 17st. Healither Weight was very supportive 5 months later I lost over 5 stone I fell pregnant in 2016 but sadly had miscarriage even though this has been difficult this has given me hope for the future with out my gastric band I wouldn't of had a great weight  loss or fell pregnant. Healthier Weight may have saved my life and made it possible for our dreams to come true.

My story
Hello! My name's Emma and I'm 39, mum of four sons and I wanted to share my story. Last year I was at my heaviest 24 and a half stone when I contacted yourselves and met Mr Li, by the time my appointment arrived I'd lost a bit of weight and I was at 22 and a half stone, so after a lovely consultation I decided to go with the gastric sleeve. I had my surgery on Wednesday the 16th of December 2015, I've now lost ten stone, I'm 14 and a half stone for the first time since I was a teenager, thank you for giving me my life back

My story
Before my weight loss surgery with Healthier weight I had ballooned up to a huge 22 stone. I was riddled with low self esteem and depression after learning how to comfort eat from the age of 11. I grew bigger every year and gained more weight with each of my 3 pregnancies. I had my weight loss surgery in August 2013 and reached my target weight of 11 stone by December 2014. I have kept the weight off ever since and enjoy a fully active, healthy happy life now.

My story
Before losing my weight i could not do activities with my three children who were all 7 and under. The most embarrassing time was when i took them to an attraction where there was a simulator ride i couldn't fit between the seats and got asked to get off. I could not also tie my laces without feeling like i was going to pass out. Since losing the weight I have run over 50 races and obstacle courses I have run three marathons and I am running the Brighton and Beachy Head marathon in a couple of months.

My story
My weight has yoyo'd since my teens, ranging from between 11 to 19 stone & sizes 12 up to 24! In Feb last year I had a photo taken. This made me feel awful. I was so overweight I hadn't realised.

I had my band done at the end of April & not looked back. I resumed at the gym doing strength training & worked with my band. I've lost 3st 9 to date & feel amazing. I'm a size 14, depression & confidence has improved & I'm healthier & fitter.

My story
Before my operation I had no life. My weight had escalated to 24st 7lbs,i had a minor stroke and thought that was it. I never went out and stopped socialising with people. I went to my doctor in June 2015 who put me in touch with healthier weight.

Since my operation I have not looked back. My dress size was 24-26 I am now in a 8-10 and i now feel great. I go out more and have a laugh and joke with people again. I have started wearing makeup and take care of my hair and nails. I am 62 this year and now weigh 9st 10 lbs. It's given me a new lease of life.

Procedure
Gastric sleeve

Weight lost 
5 st 6 lb

My story

I had tried every diet known to man, yoyo'd for the last 30yrs, my BP was through the roof and I couldn't keep up with my grandchildren or foster children. My daughter is getting married in May in Rhodes and I couldn't embarrass her by being the size I was.

I had my surgery on 12th July, since then I've not looked back, I'm loving the new me, I'm currently skiing with my husband and friends and have so much energy, I'm not huffing and puffing and retiring to the hotel at lunchtime, I'm lasting until nearly 5pm, which is unheard of for me.

My BP is normal for the first time in donkeys years and I leap out of chairs now rather than heave myself out. All told a very happy Pauline

Gastric band

Weight lost
8 st

My story
I've always been a big girl even from being In Primary school. When I got to my teens the weight seemed to just pile on, I tried every diet going from weight watchers to the Atkins diet and although I seemed to lose a few pounds I still had a long way to go and the weight would just creep back on. So in 2011 when I was 19 I had a gastric band fitted. It has been the best decision I've made to my life. Having a gastric band is not the easy option, you have got to learn to work with it. ive lost just over 8 stone with my band :)

My story
At 16 st 3lb & being vertically challenged, I had got to the point where I was embarrassed to be seen in public. Tired, depressed & no motivation, I was on a fast track to diabetes & my weight was affecting my relationship with my partner.

I had a gastric band fitted at the end of August & can honestly say it has saved my life in so many ways & is the best thing I have ever done for myself. I am currently 13st 10lb with a target to be 11st by summer. I'm back with my partner & happier than I've ever been. 2017 is so going to be my year!

My story

I've struggled with my weight since my teens and gradually my weight crept up reaching 20 stone 10lb. I always had comments like 'oh you have such a pretty face' and although I acted confident it was difficult to deal with. 

I was approaching my 30th birthday and decided I needed to do something about it and after researching I found healthier weight. I had a gastric sleeve at the end of June and I've lost 6 stone so far. Although I still have some weight to loose I feel so much more confident and healthier. For the first time in years I can now shop in the regular section in clothes shops and not the plus size. It has honestly been the best decision of my life and my only regret is that I didn't do it sooner.
