So 2 weeks ago you all saw me on channel 4’s Embarrassing Bodies
Where I had a LOT of much needed excess skin removed, a Manchester radio station (Key 103) this week asked, “Why would people go on Embarrassing Bodies and not their GP, do they get paid”
I told them, what i’ll tell you, NO, you dont get paid, however, I got the treatment I NEEDED but that the NHS refused to give, despite initially indicating that if I kept at a stable weight , they would….
So I was forced with either a life of a HUGE amount of VERY lose skin, or , a few moments on post watershed TV.
It was an easy choice TBH, sure , 5 million saw my weener, but 5 million also saw the story of , you CAN lose 27 stone by simply cycling to work, no gimmics, no operations , no pills, no clubs, just good old fashion HARD WORK .
Thats the Embarrassing Bodies “Stairs” though I filmed on them, it didn’t make the final cut.
Neither did the scene whereby my kids and are I were playing in the park, although considering the episode was more about sex, Im rather grateful it didnt TBH
So, where are we today, WELL as you saw on the show, there is still excess skin, but to think one single operation would fix all that , just wasnt realistic, so thankfully Mr Juma and the Spire Murrayfield have agreed to a revision , whereby more skin will be taken and hopefully the desired results will be achieved. Channel 4 and Embarrassing Bodies may also cover that procedure too, so watch out for more clues :0)
Overall I am happy and more able to function normally and I wouldn’t change going on the show for anything , sure I wish it would all have gone in one go, but these things are simply character building and I wouldn’t be who I am today without them, but was the pain of the weightloss and the plastics worth it…………i’ll say nothing but I will leave you with these..
..YOU TELL ME !
