Weight Loss: Andrew Thew

This week, we celebrate the successful WeightLoss of Andrew Thew.
Here’s his story:

Never in my wildest imagination could I foresee what my life would be like since having gastric sleeve surgery in August 2017. Not only has the loss of just over 45kgs been the best feeling, it’s a completely new lease on life.

I am now doing things that I never would have dreamed of doing. My partner Kirsty and I have recently started entering running events since completing the 10km run at the Gold Coast Marathon in 2019. We are now entering a half marathon at the Gold Coast running festival in April 2020, if that goes well I’ll give the full marathon a go at the Gold Coast Marathon in July 2020! We’ve also started trail running and a new goal I have is to participate in Ultra Marathons. 

Participating in these events has given me such a great feeling of accomplishment and self-confidence which is something that I feel was missing in my life. I couldn’t have been able to do this without dropping the weight from surgery.

Kirsty and I also had to change our relationship with food in order to maintain our weight loss. I can’t recommend this surgery enough, it provided me with a huge leg up to weight loss.
