My life before WLS

Before Surgery life was really restrictive. You cant go clothes shopping where you want, you have no confidence to do anything.  I was backing out of social events and not wanting to go anywhere and not wanting to be seen. I became a recluse. I felt so embarrassed of my size. I didn’t socialise and I avoided going out with friends because of how i felt.

My Tonic experience 

I chose Tonic because I saw so many success stories online and because of the aftercare package. You have the dietician, the PT, the psychotherapist and the constant support group from others who have had surgery and the team in the office.

Life after surgery 

I had the Gastric Sleeve and I lost 8.5 stone. Now I can go clothes shopping and not wear frumpy clothes.  I don’t feel intimidated going in the gym and using the weight section and i feel like one of the gym girls. I am living a healthier lifestyle and i worry less about the little things in life like sitting on a garden chair and falling through it or borrowing a friends clothes. Since surgery i have done a 10k this year and i am signed up to Brighton half marathon next year. I have my life back thanks to Tonic.

Chanelle Hayes Tonic journey with a gastric sleeve

“Before weight loss surgery, I couldn’t cope with doing anything strenuous and I couldn’t spend time with my children in the way I wanted to. My eating was out of control, and I had been yo-yoing. 

A year out from surgery, I’m a completely different person. Last year, my body fat percentage was in the morbidly obese category. Now, I’m in the healthy weight category.”
