Welcome to Thinner Times Alice!

I wasted my life yo-yoing myself to end up heavier after each dieting attempt.  I had my WLS at 52 1/2 years - that was getting on for 10 years ago.

Congratulations on losing that 10 stone (140lb) pre-op - that in itself is absolutely outstanding.

Welcome Alice!  I had my gastric bypass a few years ago, and the surgery allowed me to lose all of my extra weight and then keep it off. Quite frankly, the surgery has transformed my life in many wonderful ways, as I am now thin, healthy, active, and feel so much more "alive."  

We are here to support you on your weight loss surgery journey.
