This week, we celebrate the successful Weight Loss of Katherine Williams
Here’s her story:
On the 15th of May, I celebrated my one-year post-op anniversary.
I was a skinny child but once I became a teenager, my weight fluctuated constantly and I was unable to stabilise without living on lettuce & spending 5 hours a day in the gym.
After having my children, I just put on more and more weight and have spent my adult life hovering between 90 & 110 kgs. My 13-year relationship ended in 2013 and I became depressed and developed intense anxiety. My weight dropped drastically but due to stress, I looked drawn and sick.
Once I became happy again, my weight increased. I wasn’t happy in my body anymore, I couldn’t buy clothes that looked nice, I didn’t feel attractive or happy at all.
I contacted WLSA in January 2018, I had a consultation in March 2018. I almost cancelled my consultation but pushed through my anxiety and went along. I am so glad I did. I weighed in at 102kgs.
I was given my surgery date 15th May 2018. I started my pre-op diet 2 weeks prior to surgery. I weighed in at 96 kgs on the morning of surgery.
My surgery went very well (also had Hiatus Hernia repair which I didn’t know I had). My journey has been so easy so far.
Exactly 8 months post op I reached my 65kg goal weight. On the 15th May 2019, 1-year post op, I weigh 59-60kgs, I’m size 8 or XS which I have never been in my life.
I am healthy & happy, confident & my self-esteem is back, I look forward to everything my future holds. I highly recommend weight loss surgery to anyone struggling and would be happy to encourage & support them.
Message from WLSA:
