Lorna lost 4st 13lb

Lorna Rain, 38, is a human resources adviser and lives in Gosport, Hampshire. She had a gastric bypass in May 2011.
Weight before: 17st 8lb; dress size 26.
Weight now: 12st 9lb; dress size 16.
Portion size was the issue for me. It was, ‘Should I climb this mountain of a meal or should I eat it?’ I didn’t want my twin daughters, who are two, growing up to think it’s normal to eat that much. It’s only been a few months since the gastric bypass operation and I’ve already lost almost four stone. I did lose weight three years ago when I got married, but put it back on again. This time it’s going
to be permanent. My husband said that he didn’t mind what I looked like, but he’s enjoying my new-found confidence. I just want to be healthy and active, so I don’t have a goal weight in mind. There’s a slide at my local park and my dream is to get down that without getting stuck! I’m not there yet, but I’m determined I soon will be.

Kim lost 10st 7lb

Kim Streak, 29, is a PA from Crawley, West Sussex. She had a gastric bypass in April 2010.
Weight before: 20st; dress size 26.
Weight now: 9st 7lb, dress size 8.
I’d been on diets before but they never worked for me. I realised that if I didn’t do this, I’d end up crippled – I had severe back and knee problems – and heart disease runs in my family. Everything is different for me now, and my confidence is sky high. I knew my life had changed when I signed up to run a half marathon this month. Even if I have to walk it, I’ll definitely do it. Crossing that finishing line will be a really big thing for me.
