"I've lost over 8 stone. My marriage is stronger, I had the confidence to invest in a career change, I can access fertility treatment, my anxiety and depression are under control … the list goes on!"
Sueha’s Weight Loss Story
Life before surgery –
Prior to surgery, I suffered depression, anxiety, infertility, obesity, severe PCOS, and poor self-confidence and self-belief. I felt helpless, lonely and controlled by my weight. I weighed over 20 stone (128 kg).
Only now, having lost so much weight, do I realise how much my weight affected my life. My confidence, mobility and emotional state were all strongly impacted. My biggest motivator for pursuing weight loss surgery was to tackle infertility and PCOS. For years, my endocrinologist couldn’t legally allow me to access fertility treatment due to my BMI – I cannot begin to explain how disheartening this was.
My Tonic experience –
If I could sum it up in one word, it would be GENUINE. Gosh, they care and want the best for you! I feel so supported and even though I might not pick up the phone all the time, just knowing that I CAN makes me feel deeply grateful I chose Tonic and Mr Awad.
Life after surgery –
At 9 months post op, I have hit the UK regulation for fertility treatment BMI (<30) and it feels incredible to have hope for what lies ahead. My marriage is stronger, I had the confidence to invest in a career change, I can access fertility treatment, my anxiety and depression are under control … the list goes on!
I have more regular periods, I go to the gym (and I love it!), I embrace outdoor activities and so much more!
I’ve lost over 8 stone!
What I would say to someone considering weight loss surgery with Tonic is that for me, and a lot of people I know, there are two things that played on our minds: what people would say, and safety. In a year or two, when you are the healthiest and fittest you’ve ever been, you’ll realise that living the way you were wasn’t safe and you’ll be so busy enjoying your new lease of life that what other people think won’t even matter! Go for it!
