Wonderful WeightLoss: Julie Donoghoe

This week, we celebrate the successful Weight Loss of Julie Donoghoe. Here’s her story:

WLSA celebrates Julie’s 1 Year Sleeve Anniversary! Her procedure took place on 18th August 2015. How incredible she looked now! Julie says:

“As promised my daughter took these pics and combined with pre op to show how I have changed in 1 year I can’t believe it! I am so happy I had my sleeve and can’t thank the team at WLSA enough!”

Below story was published on 8th March 2016, about 6 months post surgery:

“In June 2015, I was obese, struggling through life, unfit and unhappy. I am a Registered Nurse and Midwife student. I was meant to set an example to patients, I was meant to be healthy. How can I talk to people about their diet and exercise when I am so obese and unhappy, struggling to move around or getting up and down from the ground while on placement for Midwifery? I was more of a risk than help to the women. I needed to do something effective and fast.


I knew a few people who had weight loss surgery with good results and figured that I would give it a go. I searched the internet and found the WeightLoss Solutions Australia page and before I knew it was on the phone booking my appointment. The staff were so friendly and helpful Dr Adib explained everything and I booked in for the surgery.


My surgery was done on 18th August all went really well and my recovery was uneventful. Not saying it has been easy, adjusting to a new way of eating ( 3 meals and 2 snacks) and managing the drinking/eating and eating slowly were all habits I had to learn but with the amazing support of dietitian Erin Wallace, any issues were quickly resolved.


Now 6 months later, I have lost 37.6kg* and feel amazing. I am exercising every day. I have completed my Surf bronze medallion. I swim and have the energy and ability to play with my little granddaughter. I could not be happier and all thanks Dr Adib and the Team at WeightLoss Solutions Australia.” *
