Patient Weight Loss Journeys

Big Decisions After Years Of Struggle

For some people, keeping a healthy weight is something that is often impossible to achieve.

Most people who undergo Weight Loss Surgery have previously tried to lose weight many times, over many years through exercise, diets, medication, discipline or a combination of some or all of these things.

It is often one of the biggest decisions that they will make in their lives, so one that is not to be taken lightly.

No matter how you feel about it, being substantially overweight carries a far greater risk of developing diseases such as type 2 diabetes, fatty liver, cardiac events, sleep apnea  and a range of other co-morbidities.

Patients' Stories Of Weight Loss In Their Own Words

In our Weight Loss Journeys, real people recount in their own words, their struggles with weight, the reasons they decided to opt for surgery and how the outcomes have shaped their lives, without any embellishing of the truth.

They were motivated to tell their stories to inform others of the risks and rewards of surgery and of the decision making process itself, so that others who are struggling with their weight can make the best possible decision for themselves.

One cannot help but be inspired and motivated by the stories they have told.

Browse the stories and decide for yourself.
