This week’s Wonderful WeightLoss story is Alex Thomson, below is her story:
Fourteen months ago I started a journey here at WeightLoss Solutions Australia, and in all honesty at the time I didn’t realise how much of an impact it would have on my life today. I’m now 13 months post op and I have lost nearly 50kg.
I will never be ashamed of my photo on the left, because that person was strong enough to take this life changing step. Admitting I was obese was probably the toughest thing I had to do, I was living in denial and that lead me further down the weight gain path. But here I am! 13 months later, 50kg lighter and so much happier!
I will forever be grateful of my amazing family & friends that helped me through this life changing year, and also a big thank you to the team at WLSA for their ongoing support. I’m also now training to enter my first marathon and I am so excited! I truly never thought i’d enjoy spending part of my weekend training for a marathon but here I am buying new running shoes and actually wanting to get out and be active! 2016 was a big year for me, but 2017 is going to be so much better!
I am also so excited to announce that I have officially started my career here at WLSA and I could not be happier. Before having this surgery I was working in retail with no real passion for what I was doing. 3 months after my surgery I was asked to come and speak at an information night and as daunting as it was for me, receiving messages afterwards from people thanking me for sharing my story made me realise how much I wanted to help people make this life changing decision. Now everyday, I get to talk to people that have made this decision for themselves or are looking into it and I can share my story with them too. I can relate to anyone coming through these doors and if I can make this whole journey a little less daunting by being here if they ever need to talk then I will happily do this for the rest of my life.
From the CEO of WLSA:
