Losing weight helped my depression and boosted my confidence

Before and after of gastric sleeve patient Julie
Life since surgery has been so much better. It’s had such a phenomenal impact on my mood… I now have a way of managing my weight much more successfully



Before her initial contact with Healthier Weight, and the gastric sleeve surgery, Julie w weighed close to 19 stone.

“Life was really difficult, I got the tube to work and couldn’t fit in the seat. I felt unhappy, tired all the time and really self conscious.”

“I didn’t want to go out, and said no to almost everyone and everything when it came to socialising, I felt uncomfortable in my own skin which would make me comfort eat because i was lonely. It was a horrible viscous cycle I was in.”

I got to the point where my depression was so bad that I missed months off work and struggled to get out of bed almost every morning – I also knew this was linked to my weight.

After initially looking at the NHS (she wasn’t heavy enough) and after looking at several different options Julie selected Healthier Weight as their provider – “the testimonials and package of care offered were head and shoulders above what any other company were offering.” she said

“The service and aftercare at Healthier Weight is exceptional – I always feel like if i need anything i can ask. I’m so glad I went with them.”

“I have lost over 5 stone so far, (July 2019) and I feel not only physically better but the impact it has had on my mood and mental health has been staggering. I feel like i’m finally the person I should be, I’m more confident and so much happier, it’s by fay the best thing I have ever done! To put it simply I have got my life back, and I don’t want to lock myself away anymore.”
