Woman loses three stone in four months after having a £3,700 balloon inflated in her stomach
Kent Live - Now a size 12, she said: “It felt strange as the balloon inflated. It was a bit like being force fed and eating three big Christmas dinners, one after the other. But what having it did for me was to take away my guilt over food and allow me to give myself permission to enjoy what I do eat, and indulge in the occasional treat. It’s the first time in years that feel I’m in control of my body and what I put in it.”

Manchester Evening News - "The balloon is not a magic pill. You still have to change how you think about food and what you’re eating. But I now eat a quarter of the portion sizes I used to, and I also eat far less processed foods. I try and eat everything in an eight hour window too, so I'm not eating too late. It’s a great feeling knowing I look and feel healthier. It’s the first time in years that feel I’m in control of my body and what I put in it.”
