Mollie’s weight had slowly been creeping up over the years, but it wasn’t until she weighed herself at a friend’s house and saw that the scales read almost 22 stone that she knew she had to do something about it. She remembers, “I was worried, upset and a bit angry that I’d allowed myself to get this big. I had to lose a lot of weight, but I knew I couldn’t do it alone. I needed help to stop me from eating so much. I had tried dieting plenty of times, but always lapsed back into bad habits and I never had enough motivation to keep going.”
Mollie had friends who’d had bariatric surgery and, after researching the procedures herself, she decided that a gastric band would be the best route for her. “I had the procedure in September in 2019. I’ve now lost nearly 8 stone!
“I have finally got my confidence back, and I feel like a whole new woman! I feel healthier and happier, and I love that I have more options when it comes to what I wear. As many larger people know, you tend to wear mostly black because it’s slimming, but now I wear an array of colours!”
