Having appeared over two pages of THE SUN newspaper, Gemma Broadley is delighted that her story has now appeared on the front cover and over two pages of TAKE A BREAK mag…
When Gemma had a gastric bypass she thought that would be the end to her weight problems.
She weighed 19st 11Ib and didn’t want daughter Abi, then aged three, to be teased at school for having a fat mum.
But although following the bypass Gemma lost lots of weight and got the figure she’d always dreamed of – she couldn’t stop losing.
And now to keep her weight around 8st Gemma has to eat around 3500 calories a day. This sounds a dream come true but the reality is Gemma has to eat all day. As her food isn’t absorbed properly – which is why she has difficulty keeping weight on – she has to take vitamins.
Her condition also causes stomach cramps and in fact she has been so weak that sometimes she’s confined to a wheelchair. Needless to say Gemma, who recently married and changed her name from Gemma Long to Gemma Broadley, wishes she’d just dieted and exercised to get slim.
Gemma said: “I have just managed to get a copy of take a break and I am absolutely over the moon with it! Thank you very much x”
