"I can go out running and I don't get out of breath just bending over to tie my shoes."

Marc’s Weight Loss Story

Life before surgery – 

I have always been a happy person. I never let my weight bother me as such, but I went to LA a few years ago with some friends and we went to some theme parks and there were rides that I couldn’t fit on because of my size. I was nearly 25 stone then and that’s when I thought that I needed to do something. I tried doing all the Weight Watchers and the Slimming Worlds and nothing stayed off. I was recommended Tonic by my fiancé and I looked into it and it all went from there.

My Tonic experience – 

I’ve had a gastric sleeve with Tonic and so far I’ve lost 8st 12lb and I feel great since having it done.

My surgeon put me at ease. Really, really nice man! The hospital I went to was in Newport. I was a bit nervous to begin with because I’d never been to a hospital for surgery before and had never stayed in overnight, so there were a lot of emotions going on, but I was looked after really well.

Life after surgery – 

Having the surgery has changed my life. I can exercise much more, I can go out running and I don’t get out of breath just bending over to tie my shoes. It does shock me when I look at old photos, because you never realise how big you are.

I’d recommend Tonic Weight Loss Surgery 100% to anyone who is thinking of changing their life or who has tried all the fad diets – Slimming World, Weight Watchers, shakes … everything. Not just for the surgery but for the aftercare you get as well. I can’t thank them or the surgeon enough. It has been life-changing. I never would have been able to do this without Tonic.
