Wonderful WeightLoss: Daniel Amos

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

The picture on the left was me on ANZAC Day 2017.
Life in the Army Reserve was getting physically harder for me and was primarily due to my weight. I was 122.6kg.

Passing basic fitness tests and having the energy to do all that was asked of me in the field was taking its toll on my back and my mental attitude was slipping also.

When I contacted the staff at WLSA, everyone from the front desk all the way through to the medical team was so helpful and sincere. I had my Gastric Sleeve Surgery on 28th November 2017 and had immediate positive results. My back pain subsided quickly and my attitude picked up. My cholesterol levels dropped significantly as well as the weight.

I was able to start fitness earlier than expected with helpful advice from the WLSA nurse Angie (thanks Angie). My energy levels increased and I passed my Basic Fitness Assessment in early February 2018 with flying colours!

My goal weight was 95kg which I wanted to reach by ANZAC Day. I reached this goal on 28th March 2018 with a simple exercise and a watchful eye on my diet (thanks to WLSA dietitian Maddie). My weight currently hovers between 93 and 94kgs.

The picture on the right is me right now (April 2018) making sure everything is in place for ANZAC Day on Wednesday (today!) It’s the same shirt, but new pants, thankfully!

Thank you WLSA for getting me to where I am today. I couldn’t have done it without you. You have given me a new positive outlook on life and possibly 20 more years of service.
