Emily lost 10st 7lb

Emily Winchester, 31, works at St Richard’s Hospital and lives in Bognor Regis, West Sussex. She had a gastric bypass in April 2010.
Weight before: 24st 13lb; dress size 32.
Weight now: 14st 6lb; dress size 18-20.
I can’t eat bread or pasta now; rice can be problematic and sweet stuff is a definite no, but I don’t miss any of it. I had type 2 diabetes and my GP told me I’d be dead by the age of 40. Even though I was terrified by the thought of leaving my young children without a mother, I just couldn’t stop eating. Today, I don’t require any medication and I’m about to be taken off the diabetic register.
I married my partner in April, almost a year to the day after my operation. I’d always said I’d never do it because I didn’t want to walk down the aisle as a size 32. My wedding dress was amazing – lots of diamanté and bling. It was a perfect day.

Lisa lost 7st

Lisa Longhurst, 33, is a single mum living in Crawley, West Sussex. She had a gastric bypass in January 2011.
Weight before: 20st; dress size 30.
Weight now: 13st; dress size 14.
Learning to eat differently was hard at first. I went to my nan’s for a family roast one day, and while everyone else had big platefuls, I could only eat five mouthfuls. When she brought out three different desserts, I went to another room and sulked! But I changed my attitude once the weight started falling off. People have said I was brave to have surgery, but there wasn’t really a choice any more. I’ve since had a go at horse riding and rock climbing, but the best thing is when my eight-year-old son hugs me. He’s always told me I’m beautiful but now he says, ‘Look, my arms can go all the way around you!’
