Sophie’s Weight Loss Story

Life before surgery -  I decided to get the gastric sleeve because I felt like I had exhausted all other options. At 24, I just felt my weight was really deteriorating. I had hit 19 stone.

Life before surgery -  Before I went for surgery, everyone used to think I was a really confident person but actually I wasn’t.

Jonny’s Weight Loss Story

Life before surgery -  Before surgery, I weighed 26 and a half stone. I know I’ve weighed more than that, but you stop weighing after a while as you really don’t want to know. I felt useless and disgusting and an embarrassment to everyone around me. I know many people have features they don’t like about themselves but to physically feel sick every time you dress in your specially ordered clothes is a daily ritual that leaves you on edge. The very idea of walking upstairs ...

Zoe’s Weight Loss Story

Life before surgery - Before surgery, I was 21 and a half stone. I was in a really dark place, dreaded leaving the house and was in pain all the time with my back, knees and ankles.

I wouldn’t let my husband near me, I would never go out with friends, I dreaded family parties/activities and I always watched my ch...
