Weighing 22 stone (308lb) at 5'7" and having diabetes, injecting insulin 4 times a day the future looked very bleak. I was then thrown a lifeline by my GP who referred me for a gastric bypass.
I had to jump through many hoops and eventually had surgery 18 months later. I have not looked back since. I am one year post surgery and have lost eight and a half stone (119lb) and feel fabulous. I have energy, confidence and more importantly a future.
