You see photos like this on Facebook every day, with the promise that you only drink one pill a day, and your fat will melt away without changing your diet and without exercise. That is one big fat scam.
I started with my balloon journey on the 15th of June 2023, today, as I write this post, it is the 2nd of November 2023. 140 days, and I’ve lost 41kilograms. Yes, and that is 100% the truth.
The balloon helps you to lose weight, with a very strong emphasis on the word HELP. The balloon is not going to do all the work for you. The balloon plays a 25% role in the game. 25% of that is your eating habits / lifestyle. Yes you won’t be able to polish an entire pizza while you have the balloon, but drinking sterri stumpies, milkshakes and ice cream will not help either.
25% is your exercise regime, and the last 25% is your biggest enemy, your mind set.
But if the balloon, exercise regime, dietary lifestyle change and your mind set play together, you will have an amazing weight loss team!
I used to drink Diabetes and blood pressure medication, every day. I don’t need it anymore! I am full of energy, full of live, without aches and pains. I am a new person, thanks to my own weight loss team, which was captained by the gastric balloon!
My Dr, Dr Sean van der Merwe and his team was absolutely amazing! They guided me every step of the way and with every challenge they were right there with me. I was sick for about 12 weeks after the initial insertion……my body was tired and I still struggled to keep solids and soft foods down. Never once did I consider to remove the ballon as I personally still wanted so desperately for this to work. Soon after getting the drip I started feeling better and by 6 months I had lost 27kg’s! I went for my first fill and toped up from 550ml to 650ml. Thereafter I lost the rest of my 54 kg’s. About two months before removal I went back for a second fill and topped up to 750ml. In total I lost 67kg’s in 12 months! I feel like a changed person. It took dedication and on most days motivation to stick to the plan and ensure the weightloss but every single day was worth it!!!!! I would not hesitate for one second as this was the best decision I ever made!!!
