Losing Weight

I have a good friend who lives in America. He is a big guy, about 6.5 feet in height and over 160 kilos in weight. He talks to me about weight loss a lot, e.g. some new medicine comes out or there is a new operation can help him. Well, I always say to him “the best way is through a healthy diet and regular physical activity”.

But the problem to him is, he tried everything he can (including diet and exercise) and he cannot lose his excess weight, and because of over-weight, it starts causing his health problem.

One day last month, he called me up and said he was going to do some kind of loss weight operation 3 days later in Mexico.

To be honest, I had no idea what he was talking about at that moment.

He explained to me the story was he met one of his friends - Stephen - from his local gym, who was also overweight and had the same problem as himself. Upon seeing Stephen recently, he described him as a totally like a new guy, losing 15 kilos in total. Stephen introduced my friend to a new website because he did his surgery there.

So my friend went to the website and had a look, he found the surgery called gastric bypass surgery, and the website is a great central resource for information about this issue. Simply gastric bypass surgery changes the anatomy of your digestive system to limit the amount of food you can eat and digest, is the favored bariatric surgery. Also he said it can provide long-term, consistent weight loss if accompanied with ongoing behavior changes.

My friend called them straight away and booked one for himself. When he finished this story, I still couldn’t believe, but he sounded so determined, I only can wish him good luck.

About 2 weeks later, he emailed me a recent picture, I totally got shocked how he looks now, phoned him, he said he was so happy about his surgery; it helped him to get back his normal life.
