I had a gastric sleeve with Tonic Surgery a year ago and lost 8 stone I feel amazing!
Life Before Surgery
Before surgery I couldn’t cope with doing anything strenuous, I couldn’t spend time with my children in he way I wanted to. I felt out of control of my eating, I have been yo-yoing. I have been every single size of clothes you can think of in my wardrobe size 4-20 and everyone in between, I got in a really unhealthy cycle of binging, emotionally eating and really struggled managing my weight and it really impacted my health which then impacted by job and my life, I lost all my happiness.
My Tonic Experience
I researched every company in England, I am very thorough, what stood out to me about Tonic is that it wasn’t a get you in, do the surgery and get you out of the door, its an on going relationship with not even just one person but so many teams that work with you to keep you track, regular psychological appointments with someone when you are a emotional eater and have a food addiction is something you cannot get on the NHS or can’t nip to talk to your GP about, the fact I have that service through having my bariatric surgery is phenomenal, you can’t put a price on it.
Life after Surgery
A year out from surgery I’am a completely different person. Last year my Body Fat Percentage was in the morbidly obese category, now I am standard too low. I couldn’t get through a spin class before, now I could go on back to back classes if I want to. I couldn’t go on long dog walks before now i could walk for days. I would always have joint problems, in my knees and in my hip and back before surgery thats all gone now. I cannot explain in words how grateful I am for this opportunity, it makes me emotional. It has completely turned my life around and given me and my children a second chance to create memories and have fun together and it’s all thanks to Tonic.
