Good day all. I started my weight loss journey Sep 2018 at 171kg. It was after i had 3 asthma attacks in one year, was told i had high blood pressure and had to be on meds forever, i was told i had sleep apnea, i was told i was pre-diabetic and i was having serious back pains even after a full nights sleep. All of this in one year 2018. For the first time in my life i realised i could die....that my weight could kill me. After lots of research and advise from my Doctors,i decided to have Bariatric Surgery done. I joined the program and they immediately put me on a diet for 3 months. They were pleased with the weight loss and dedication so far that they pproved me for surgery. I had money saved for rainy days and used it to pay for the surgery since Medica Aid doesnt cover it. On the 4th February 2019, Ihad my Gastric Sleeve bypass done. In the next 18 months,i should be at the healthy weight goal between 70kg and 80kg. By then i will need one last surgery to remove the excess skin that i will have because of the amount of weight i would have lost. So im in desperate need of funds as i wont be able to pay for the procedure on my own. This surgery will change my life for the better and im ready to start a new life in my new body.
I ask for any amount of donations. Whatever you can donate will be appreciated. 18 months from now is around the corner and i would like for everything to be done before then.
Thank you very much for taking the time to read my story and consider helping me make my dreams come true.
