My story

I found myself approaching middle age, unemployed and also, worst of all, very overweight. I felt very depressed and completely fed up with myself and life in general. I was one of those people who could lose the weight but found it very difficult to keep it off. I decided I had to take some serious steps, once and for all, in order to change my life forever.

I had heard about bariatric surgery and how successful it had been for many people. I did some research and discovered Healthier Weight. I saw that their after-care plan was second to none and sent away for some information. I was very pleased with what I read and decided that this was the company who I wanted to fit my gastric band.

First, I had to save up, with the help of my partner, to have the operation done. I remember being very excited when my operation was scheduled. I felt quite confident about the whole thing. I knew things had to change. After the bariatric surgery was over, I just got on with losing the weight. I couldn't believe how easy it was. I had to have my band adjusted a few times. I had to have some fluid added, when I felt that the band wasn't tight enough and then have some removed, when I felt it was a little too tight. I now feel that I have achieved the right restriction for me.

Even now, some days I can eat something and then the next day I find it more difficult to eat that particular food item. I still have to eat much slower than I used to eat. I really like eating healthy food but if I feel like a packet of crisps or a chocolate bar I have one without feeling guilty and, most importantly, I still feel in control. I also drink one of my Weight To Go protein shakes everyday. I make them up in the blender and they are totally delicious. They really set me up for the rest of the day. I have lost just over 7 stones in weight and my life has completely changed, in all aspects.*

I have a new job, which I really enjoy. I socialise with friends much more and of course I can wear nice clothes. I feel so much healthier all round. It's so much easier to maintain my weight loss now, compared with before. I feel that I belong now and am enjoying my life.
