Stephanie’s Gastric Sleeve journey – Pre-op


Hi. I decided to get a gastric sleeve. I’ve been dieting now for about twenty/thirty years I’ve tried everything; Slimming World and Weight Watchers,
even bought tablets from the internet Yeah i’d lose weight for a little bit,
but then it always go back on and so I decided that I wanted to make an
investment in me and get a gastric sleeve. So I have booked in through
Healthier Weight. I did a lot of research and I met a consultant from Healthier
Weight who put me completely ease. Who talked me through all my options. Talked me through gastric band, the sleeve, the bypass and I decided that the sleeve
was the best one for me. I am a big over-eater I’ve got no, no signal there that tells
me when I’m full so that’s why I decided to go for the sleeve because it would
give me the restriction that I needed I’m quite excited. My surgery is
quite soon so I’m looking forward to that. I’m looking forward to losing
weight and getting into smaller clothes and being more healthy. I’ve not got a goal
weight in mind, I just want to be a bit slimmer than I am now. I want to be able
to be more active do things with my children, do things with my partner that
I can’t do now without getting out of breath. Yeah I’m really looking forward
to it I’m excited it’s a positive change for me it’s it’s what’s right for
me. I’ve thought long and hard about it and I’ve done a hell of a lot of home
work into it and I know exactly what I’m expecting and it’s just going
to be a massive positive change for me. So I’m really really
excited in getting the gastric sleeve so So yeah, fingers crossed. I will keep you
updated. Thanks.
