Julie is half the woman she used to be

A Huddersfield woman has room for two, in one of her old pairs of trousers.

Mother-of-three Julie Alexander, from Clayton West, has lost more than 9 stones, thanks to gastric bypass surgery.

Julie weighed 22 stones before having the operation in March 2011. Since then, her weight has dropped to 13 stones, and she is still losing weight.

The surgery was performed by upper GI consultant, Mr Brian Dobbins, at the Huddersfield Royal Infirmary.

Julie was referred to the bariatric service at the Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Foundation Trust.

But before surgery was offered, Julie had to prove that she would change her lifestyle to take more exercise and a healthier diet.

Since the operation, she has gone down from a size 30 to size 16. Her target is a svelte size 14.

Julie has praised consultant Mr Brian Dobbins and his team at the Huddersfield Royal Infirmary, and her family, friends and work colleagues for their support and encouragement.
