Video Transcription:

“Before I had the procedure I was 105kgs. Wasn’t able to go out because I was out of breath, lethargic, just no energy at all – nothing was worth doing. I tried all the diets under the sun and the usual thing [would happen] you’d lose 10 kilos and put 20 back on. I tried a lot of diets there wasn’t a lot of different procedures that were around back 10 and a half years ago when I had it done.”

“Since I’ve had it done I can still enjoy all the good foods that I used to enjoy before.”

“Friends? Yes, friends complimented me, told me that I had done the right thing and I’ve looked really well. Before this procedure I was very shy, not outgoing, not confident in myself. I’ve competed in the Gold Coast marathon three times. The first time I competed was a bit of a challenge but I came out the other end very happy with my result.”

“I feel much healthier in myself now. I have no regrets of having it. It is the best thing I’ve had. It’s helped me in so many ways and the thing I like about it is it’s not agressive and it can be adjusted to suit you.”

“Since my gastric band procedure I’m so much more active. I can do tons of things I could never do before. I started at 105 kilos and I got down to 69 kilos.” *
