On The 10th Day of Christmas My True Love Gave To Me Ten Lords A Leaping

Who better to tell you about the energy that you get back after weight loss surgery than our lovely Kris..

Back in early 2013 I saw a picture of myself from Christmas and it hit me there and then, I really had to do something about my weight. I’d been big since my teens but over the years it had escalated and I was 26 stone! My weight loss journey has been intense, and so incredible. I could not be happier with my results. My entire life is different, and I work with my body now, not against it. I try to eat well, whilst recognising that I will still make terrible choices that don’t fit with someone who’s had a gastric bypass. After all, there is a reason I had bariatric surgery in the first place – because I really, really love food. And I still love food, I love to eat, to socialise and to try new things. Having had a gastric bypass doesn’t stop me doing any of those things, it just changes the way I do them. I feel so much healthier, happier and confident. Most days I look in the mirror, and I feel good about the way I look, and I know I am healthier and can be a much happier person because of the weight loss. My Heaviest weight was 26 stone and now I’m 13 stone.

Before I chose the bariatric group I looked at various different options, but something about the bariatric group pulled me in. It was the team who are just incredible. Everyone is fantastic! Daisy and Ali are brilliant point of contact. They have all the answers and are genuinely interested and enthusiastic. Anne and Jane are fantastic and know exactly what they are talking about. They give me a real feeling of confidence in what they are telling me. I made great use of both of them at various times by just spilling all in exchange for some decent advice. And Mr Welbourn the surgeon. He literally helped me become half the man I used to be.
