This week, we celebrate the successful WeightLoss of Heidi Hayward. Here’s her story:
After yo-yo dieting for years, working so hard to lose weight and then putting it all back on within weeks, I finally felt like I needed to do something more permanent about my weight loss when my 6 yr old son asked me “why don’t you ever come swimming with us, Mummy”.
I hadn’t worn swimmers or shorts for a long time and would often sit out while my son and husband did activities together as I was embarrassed about my body and was too unfit to do a lot of things. I was carrying a lot of fluid, struggled to get down on the floor to play with him and just felt so unhappy.
A friend of mine was telling me about the surgery so I decided to go along to an information session at WLSA to find out more. The common message from all the speakers was – why didn’t I do it sooner and I walked away thinking – why wait! I had my gastric sleeve surgery on 25th oct and 4 months later have a new lease on life. 22 kilos down, I have more energy, am going to the gym, swimming and playing with my son.
I feel healthy and happy knowing this time I am not slipping back into old habits. Thank you WLSA for all the support and guidance along this journey!
‘Congrats Heidi! All of the hard work and determination has most definitely paid off. Keep kicking goals
