For most of my life, I had battled with my weight. It became a lot worse as I got into my mid-to-late twenties. I tried multiple different diets, and at times my weight would drop, but I could not sustain that. I became very self-conscious and found it very difficult to do simple things like go for a walk or go to the park with my daughter. This was extremely hard mentally and emotionally for me. My weight got to a high of 132kg. I started to experience some other health issues which included high blood pressure.
I decided to start looking into weight loss surgery. For a start, as most of us do, I jumped online and started searching for what might be my best option. This is when I found NEWLS. After doing a lot of research and thinking, I decided I would enquire online. I was contacted by NEWLS not long after that and I was given all the information I needed and more. I made an appointment to see Patrick and he went over all the risks, costs, and different options that might be suited to me. It was at this point I knew I had made the right decision by choosing NEWLS.
I chose to have the sleeve done. Leading up to the surgery I lost 17kg and since having the sleeve done, I have lost 35 kgs with takes me to a healthy weight of 80kg.
I am so happy with the support I have had from the start of my weight loss journey and continue to have now. I can do all those things that I once struggled with and more.
I chose NEWLS because of the level of support that I was given and the professionalism of everyone at the clinic.
Even now, the team is providing a high level of support.
I was worried about cost, but also, I was worried about being judged. This was a hard topic for me to talk about.
Any concerns you might have, share that with Meril and Patrick and they will give you a high level of support.
Try different foods, even foods that you may not have enjoyed before surgery. I have found to enjoy different foods that I didn’t enjoy prior to having the surgery.
I would highly recommend enquiring to the team at NEWLS. My whole life has changed since the day I enquired and I could not be happier! I am extremely happy with the results, and also the improvement in my mental and emotional health has been amazing.
