It's been a long year and a half, lots of therapy , diet and exercise, and I find myself a 110 lbs lighter. I am 20 lbs away from my goal of 115lbs. I am now looking for a plastic surgeon to perform an entire body lift. My breasts are hanging past my waist, and my belly button hangs way past my vagina.
How did this happen you ask?
I have been yoyo dieting since I was 13 years old. I found myself celebrating my 49th birthday being twice the weight a normal 4 foot 10 inch woman should be. I should have bern wearing a size 8, and found myself in a size 24. My back hurt, my ankles hurt, my shoe size went from a size 6 to a size 8.5. I couldn't walk, and kept falling because I couldn't see the curb or the last step on the stairway because my stomach was in the way and I couldn't see my feet. I had a torn meniscus, was becoming a diabetic, and couldn't walk across the street without having to stop for 5 minutes, gasping for air. I couldn't take a bath, because I didn't fit in a bathtub.
I finally got scared straight when my normal blood pressure went from 120 / 80 to 180/ 135. I could have a stroke at any moment. I was too young to be having all of these issues, and if I didn't get a handle on it now, I might as well make arrangements for my funeral. I had to do something to save my life.
Thank you for taking the time to read my campaign. Please help me finish my journey to a better me.
