My story

I was always a big lad – the biggest in class. I grew up big. At 21 I was 17 stones. Throughout life it kept creeping up, especially after 3 years of going in and out (mostly in) of hospital. I went in at 18 ½ stones and came out at over 23 stones. 

I became so big I lost my sparkle. I decided I had to do something about it so I looked on the Internet for information. I went to Healthier Weight and they were absolutely fantastic. I intended to shop around, rang up a local private hospital in Cornwall and made an appointment to see them but never went. I had my operation in Manchester with Professor Ammori and was in hospital for 2 days. I stayed with a friend for a week and then drove home to Cornwall.  

My life has totally changed. I’ve got energy. Despite suffering with cerebral palsy, which gives me hand co-ordination problems, I make my living as a DJ.  I’m in the public eye. Since my bypass I can run around on stage, swim, bike-ride and exercise. I could not do this before. 

In 7 months, I’ve lost 11 ½ stones. Ooh do I feel the cold now! It’s costing me a fortune in extra oil heating! I play all kinds of music but I’m particularly keen on the America rock scene – Bruce Springsteen, REO Speedwagon, Foreigner, Toto, Journey etc. My aim is to eventually go and live in Malta – life’s a beach!
