Weight Loss: Kimberly Hulme

Transformation Update: 6th October 2022

This week, we celebrate the successful weight loss of Kimberly Hulme. Here’s her story:

My name is Kimberly, and I had Gastric Sleeve surgery in October 2021, this is my life so far.

My pre-sleeve life was tough… I hated being out in public, I was embarrassed, and I felt shame. I could barely buy clothes because I was larger than the largest sizes! I was constantly thinking about my size, “will I fit in that chair?”, “Can I walk that distance?”. I didn’t wear make-up because I would sweat it off right away. I wasn’t living the life I wanted because of the weight.

I have been overweight my whole life as back as when I was a kid. In my adult life, I had tried every diet under the sun, and every exercise, but nothing worked for me. I felt defeated, and the kilos piled on. When I reached 174kgs, my family expressed concerns. My elderly father looked me in the eye and said “you can’t die before me.” That hit my soul. So, in a last attempt to live a full life, I booked an appointment at WLSA, and the journey began.

Since my surgery, 11 months on and I have lost nearly 50kgs – 174kgs to 126kgs! I know I still have a way to go, but I now know I’ll get there. My life has done a complete 180. I have self-love and pride that I have never felt before.

I can express myself with clothes because I have a choice. The day I walked into Kmart and picked something out of the “normal” section and it fit was something I had never done in my adult life – I cried. I can casually walk 5kms without skipping a breath. I’m sleeping better. My mental health is drastically more positive. I am finally living!

Throughout this whole process, the team at WLSA have been amazing. The information session before I booked my consultation was helpful, but also reassuring. The surgery was so smooth, aftercare has been invaluable with regular check-ins, and ad hoc calls when I felt the need.

Jen the dietitian has been amazing with all my diet questions! Every time I call the clinic, I am met with a friendly voice. It makes all the difference when you are going through something so personal. I am so happy I made the choice to call WLSA.

If you’re on the fence, jump off and do it. Take photos. Make the choice to live life.
