The Reason

So this is me, July 15th 2011, my all time low.0001 July 15 2011 copy

174kgs (27.4 stone /383.6lbs)- Heaviest was 179kgs

Aged 31 and weighing 179 kgs I had been single for 6 years with no self confidence or social life. I comfort ate just to get get some pleasure, my weakness was biscuits, crisps, chocolate, sweets, fizzy drinks, topped with sugar and salt on everything. I worked in a demanding job where I was on my feet all day, this played havoc on my knees and lower back. Constant pain at the end of the day i’d just come home, eat then go to bed. I constantly suffered from migraines, stomach cramp, extremely high blood pressure, which resulted in regular random nose bleeds.

With absolutely no exercise the weight crept on rapidly and on this day i decide to take drastic action; Bariatric surgery.

On the 17th of August 2011 (weighing 174 kgs) I went under the surgeons blade and has a gastric lap band fitted. Through this blog i will share my struggles and goals, I have finally plucked up the courage to share my story..but its far from over, so welcome to my mission, a weightloss mission that is! < CLICK TO CONTINUE
