Next, let’s move on to the questions you’re waiting for 🙂 How can Shona manage to lose so much weight?

Firstly, she focuses on food. “I tried very hard to stick to what my dietician had set out for me in terms of the amount of protein and calories I could have daily, keeping a food diary really helped with that. In addition, getting ideas from others on the Facebook pages also helped.

The second thing is exercise. “As for exercise, I really only walked increasing how far I would walk as I progressed and usually walked 8km.”

Finally, she left her advice that “My advice for anyone who is hesitating in having weight loss surgery is to do your research, use the support on the Facebook page and when possible, join the webinars when they are on and listen to the questions and experiences that others have gone through. It’s not easy by any means but if you’re ready to change your life then it will be the best decision you will have ever made. Remember that you are not alone in your journey.”
