Shannon had gastric bypass surgery in December 2019. Just over a year later, she’s lost nearly 11 stone and says she has never felt more fabulous!
“I decided to look into weight loss surgery, as I’d felt unhealthy and unhappy with my weight for a while. My biggest driver was that I had a number of weight-related health problems. I’d developed arthritis in my knee which gave me quite a lot of pain, I also had problems with asthma – made worse by my extra weight - and my thyroid levels weren’t great at all. I needed to take things into my own hands and do something about it.
“In the months following my weight loss surgery, my weight started going down and my health and wellbeing just got better and better. I now feel so much healthier and happier than I have in a long time. My arthritis has pretty much disappeared, and my thyroid levels are back on point – it’s amazing! I’m also so much more confident than I’ve ever been before.
“It’s important to realise that surgery is not the ‘easy way out’ and I've had a lot of ups and downs during this transformation. But I have never regretted making the decision to change my whole life for the better. My self-confidence has never been higher, and I feel like I can now accomplish anything!”
