Weight Loss: Felicity Philipson

Transformation Update: 27th June 2022

This week, we celebrate the successful weight loss of Felicity Philipson. Here’s her story:

Well where do I start… Just over 12 months ago I made the most amazing decision for myself, having weight loss surgery. It has been the most rewarding thing I’ve ever done! My journey has been so life changing that it’s really like an awakening and I finally feel free to live the life I deserve.

I started my journey with very low self esteem, so bad that I hid behind an ‘image’ that people believed was me, the loud funny one. Having this life changing experience has given me the confidence I never dreamed of! Throughout this journey I’ve learned a lot about myself, not only did I lose 45 kg, I lost a lot of the other ‘baggage’ I was carrying around.

My food behaviour was not healthy or sustainable, if I was sad I would eat, if I was stressed I would eat, or whatever emotion I was struggling with the food would fix it. I no longer feel this way now and when I feel sad I go for a walk or exercise, I’ll play music that makes all those endorphins alive and dance around my house. I really finally feel, the true me.

My journey has been nothing but amazing and I’m so healthy I have even eliminated diabetes and blood pressure medication, and my sleep apnoea has disappeared. My cardiologist says I’ve given myself the best gift – LIFE!!!!

So if anyone is thinking about it, stop thinking and just do it!!!! So you can sit on the best losers bench of your life and start living and loving yourself again ❤️
