Nearly one in four people in the UK is obese and the numbers are rising faster than anywhere else in Europe. Sarah's weight (not her real name) had climbed to 20 stone (127 kg) and she had found it difficult to lose weight by dieting, so she decided to have a gastric band fitted. She allowed Tina Stallard to photograph her over two years, before, during and after her weight-loss surgery. The work was published in the Sunday Times Magazine.
