Trigger for weight loss Felt guilty for being overweight
At my heaviest I weighed 16 stone but thanks to the gastric band I’ve lost 4 stones* quite gradually in a year. I was spurred into action because I felt my life was out of control and I felt guilty for being overweight. I was also hungry all the time.
I did a lot of research and chose Healthier Weight because they had the best reviews on their website and the best feedback in all the forums – and believe me, I read them all. I found the staff very professional and I can honestly say this is the best investment I have ever made in myself*.
There are so many positives to having a gastric band. I now have more energy, I’m more active, I have more confidence at work and when I’m out socially and I can start to think about having a family*. It is definitely not an easy fix but it helps in ways other short-term diet programmes never did, especially with controlling hunger*.
