Dear Michael,

This is a very small thank you letter- the inverse of the gratitude I actually have for you and your team. I am now literally less than half the woman I used to be: down 53 kgs from my assessment weight, down 73 kgs or 160 pounds from my largest. I have from a size 24/ 26 to a 10/ 12.

David - Gastric Bypass

Dear Mr Booth,

By the time you get this letter I will have lost 40 kg's in weight, heading towards 50 kgs - not very far away from my goal.

Hardly a day goes by without my thanking you quietly for what you and your team have done for me. I put my weight loss surgery amongst the important stages of my life. Recovery is "slowly but surely" and has been pretty straight forward.

This has changed my life. I wish I had known about this operation 10 years ago as it has been one of the greatest things ever to happen to me. I am a new person. It has ultimately changed my life for the better, both physically and mentally.

Beth-Maree 31 - Gastric bypass

I was morbidly obese, suffered from chronic illnesses, depression and low esteem when I decided to go ahead with a gastric bypass. I weighed in over 156kgs, wore size 30 clothes and was only 163cm tall. For years I struggled to lose weight with all sorts of diets but only ever put more on.

Sharlene - Gastric Bypass

I'm 34 years old, single and for most of my life I've been overweight. I had tried various diets, you name it - I've tried it! I finally came to a huge decision in my life and decided to get my stomach stapled (a gastric bypass) and was referred to Dr Michael Booth who was very supportive and is a very nice man. The day of my operation I weighed in at 108kg, and after 3 months I now weigh 86kgs. I have lost a whopping 22kgs so far. I feel great, have more confidence in myself, have heaps of energy and most of all I am happy with myself for the first time in a long while. The good thing about this procedure is that I'm getting healthier and slimmer, the bad thing is finding the extra cash to buy new clothes! I absolutely have no regrets in getting the operation and I know I'm going to look back in 10 years time and think, "Yes, I'm glad I went through with it."
