Hello! My name is Theresa and I have a gastric band!
I was banded on 15th November 2008 with Healthier Weight in Manchester. At the time I weighed 20 stone and had a BMI of 43. My blog records my day-to-day experiences with the band - the good, the bad and the ugly. So far, I have lost loads of weight but still have some way to go. Gastric surgery is not a cosmetic procedure, it's not a quick fix and I can assure you, it is no easy option. But it is an option that is working for me. It's improved my health and given me huge hope for the future. Wherever you are on your journey I wish you luck and good health. I hope that my blog helps you in some way. All the best, Theresa.
