Weight Loss: Steve Ball


Transformation Update: 21st September 2021

This week, we celebrate the successful weight loss of Steve Ball.
Here’s his story:

These pictures speak for themselves!

The first picture was me at my heaviest, sitting at 204.5kg and not a happy man at all.

Today I am 91kg flat and the happiest I have been in my whole life!

6 weeks post my excess skin removal surgery, I can confidently say that I’m happy, resilient, strong, fit, and HEALTHY. These are just some of the words I would use to describe myself now.

Most of all HAPPY is the most important to me – I am truly and completely happy.

Transformation Update: 19th August 2020

This week, we celebrate the successful WeightLoss of Steve Ball.
Here’s his story:

At the start of last year (2019), my marriage broke up and I started to spiral. I weighed myself 2 weeks Post Breakup and I was 204kg, which was the heaviest I have been in my life.

I decided that from there I would lose weight. Between then and June 2019, I lost nearly 40kg in a really unhealthy manner through bingeing and purging. I had a mini-breakdown and realised that I couldn’t do this – I cannot go back to yoyo up and down and up and down again, I would die and my kids need me. I NEED ME.

I messaged WLSA and spoke with Felicity about weight loss surgery. I booked myself in to meet with the nurse, psychologist and surgeon. After I met with them and had booked myself in for surgery, I had a major freaked out and put on 10kg in 3 weeks. I binged like no one had ever binged before. Legit, I ate 2 family meals from Carl’s Jr in one sitting! After this significant binge, I decided to focus on my pre-op diet and followed it to the letter.

A month after starting my pre-op diet I went in for my weight loss surgery – gastric sleeve procedure with WeightLoss Solutions Australia. This surgery was a major part of me saving my own life. 

I 100% did this for my kids. I organised with my amazing coach Simon to start working on building my fitness and muscle. Now, I knew I was strong, but I had no lasting strength or fitness at all. From 5 weeks Post Op, it was on and I have only missed one training session this whole time due to illness. I take resistance bands with me when I travel for work and have plans for bodyweight exercises. Now for me, it is about just getting it done. I love exercising and building muscle.

Today is 1 year since my operation. This milestone for me is more important than any of my birthdays or Christmases. 15th of August is my Rebirth Day, the day where I was brought from existing to truly living. Has it been easy? NO FRIGGIN WAY. Has it been worth it? 100%! Would I do it again if I had my time over? YES, INDEED! Has my self-image and understanding of my own self-worth changed??? YAS QUEEN.

1 year ago. I was miserable, existing only for my kids.
1 year ago, I had no idea life would be so different.
1 year ago, I had completely given up on the idea of love.
1 year ago, I was doing this to save my own life because that’s what my kids deserved and needed.
1 year ago, I had a choice… to CHANGE OR DIE.

1 year ago, I decided it was time to GO SUPERSAIYAN.

I weighed myself this morning. I have hit 103kg.
What some of you may or may not know is this means I have lost 101kg from my absolute heaviest.

Where will I be in 1 year from now?#WatchThisSpace

Transformation Update: 6th May 2020

This week, we celebrate the successful WeightLoss of Steve Ball.
Here’s his story:

63kg gone and gone forever. I still can’t believe that I am currently under 110kg right now – life couldn’t be better!

Yeah, we may be in self-isolation, but I am continuing to make the most out of my life. I’m lifting somewhat heavy weights again and I’m liking the shape my body is starting to take.

Flashback to my birthday in August last year and I was 170kg and hating everything about life. The only ones who kept me committed, holding on and wanting to live were my kids. It’s crazy the road life can take you on.

This journey and surgery are 2 key parts that have contributed to saving my life. I can’t thank Felicity Cohen and the whole WLSA team enough, for walking me through this journey and to my coach Simon who has been amazing, guiding and encouraging me. 

I can tell you honestly right now that I may not be where I am and where I am going without his guidance, support and “check-ins”.

I am proud of how far I have come and where I’m going. I can’t deny the difference between these two photos!

I have no regrets getting bariatric surgery. I know I will be here for my kids and my grandchildren. My life is eternally better, compared to where things were heading 3 months ago.

I’ve officially lost 40kg since my pre-op diet weigh in. I am a proud bariatric patient! Anyone who says this is the easy way out, or a cheaters way to lose weight, obviously don’t know much about weight loss surgery.

The surgery is just a tool, it works as hard as you do.

Steve Ball.
