    Kernow Jo:Success Story/ Lost -97.5 lb on WW / Now having Gastric Band Hypnotherapy!

    Hi my name is Jo and I needed to lose as much as possible for an operation later this year.

    I am following my old ww programme switch (core plan) because this is what has worked best for me in the past. I do however have the discovery plan as well.


    After losing three pregnancies during 2006, 2007, 2008 and giving up smoking, I comfort ate all the way through my pregnancy in 2009 right up until I had a c-section and gave birth to my lovely little boy born June 2009. I had by this time ballooned to a astonishing 21st.


    After having a successful pregnancy my husband and I decided to carry on and try for another baby hoping to have them close together in age.

    Unfortunately I lost the next pregnancy in November 2009. As if this wasn't enough to cope with, during a gynaecological operation (a erpc), the surgeon 'accidently' perforated my womb and bowel leaving me very unwell and in hospital for 5 weeks.


    My recovery was a complicated one which has left me with a large incisional hernia. I lost some weight but was still weighing in at 18st 2lbs


    My consultant had said I needed to lose as much weight as possible before my next operation to lessen the risks. I saw my consultant again in November 2010 and my weight was down to 17st 6lbs. He was pleased I had lost a little more weight but said he wanted me to lose as much as possible in the next six months.


    I came away from that apt and decided I needed to get my act together. I have a lovely husband and little boy (now 2yrs old). They nearly lost me during my last operation when my bowel was perforated and I needed to do all I can to make sure this next operation goes smoothly with the least risks as is possible.

    I decided I needed to start to exercise so started walking daily. At first I walked between 3000 - 5000 steps a day and gradually increased this. I now walk between 20000 - 30000 steps daily.

    After the first ten weeks I had lost another 25 lbs.

    I was then down to 15 st 9lbs wooohoooo!

    I realised that following a healthy food plan and continueing to walk was going to be the way forward for me.

    I have kept this up and am now 12 st 9 lbs

    I am now on a waiting list for my hernia repair and hope to have this about September time. I still have another 16 lbs to lose and am trying to get this shifted before my operation so please feel free to pop in, comment or just give general support....... I am grateful for all I can get!

    Update 30/09/2011
    I am now 11st 11.5 lbs, It feels good to be well into the 12 stone's, and into size 12 clothes!Woooooo Hoooooo! Total loss 128.5 lbs !

    I had my operation on 8th Sept 2011 and am now recovering at home. The operation was more complicated then the consultant thought it would be so they didn't do the abdominoplasty. This will hopefully be done next year to remove the excess skin I now have from the weight loss but also because the hernia got so large it stretched the skin.

    Read my up to date posts to follow my post operation diary / pics.

    I have attached some pics of my journey, the first is when I was 21st and last 11st 11.5lbs!

    Good luck in your weight loss journey!!

    There are pics of my journey in my profile album, feel free to have a look. You can also click on the pics below!

    The weather has been great this week so I have managed to get lots of walking in. I am determined to loss those last few lbs before my operation. Hopefully the weather will stay nice so I can walk some more this week. Jo x

    Wow, well done! What an inspiration. You're looking fabulous! I hope that your op in September is successful and that you can enjoy your new body and fitness to the full.
    Nothing will change
    unless you yourself make it .





    The goals weren't working....I never was much of a sports fan

    I just want to reach a healthy weight and do it without driving myself crazy!
