Since Nov 2015, I have shed over 100kg. I've been maintaining my new healthy lifestyle for over 3 years and this is my next step!
In November 2015, I decided I had to save my own life.
I had been a big girl for as long as I could remember and my weight had gotten to the stage where I wanted to make radical changes but I had so much to lose to get to a point where eating less and moving more was something I could do every single day. I had a gastric bypass.
In the last three years, I have lost 105kg. And I have maintained not only my new weight but my new healthy and active lifestyle. I eat nutritious and delicious foods and I share my love of cooking and meal planning and preparation with the weight loss surgery community.
I also workout regularly - usually every day! I lift weights, walk as much as possible and participate in High-Intensity Interval Training. But this is where it gets difficult.
Most of my loose skin sits around my thighs and my bottom. When I run or jump, I am in pain.
The skin moves up and down and great workout tights definitely help but I have the opportunity to have it removed once and for all.
The surgery will simply give me the opportunity to continue my healthy lifestyle - just pain-free!
All - or any - of the money I can raise will go towards my surgery costs ...
Thigh lift (including all hospital and accommodation) $12,500.00
Travel costs $2000.00
Usually, I use Givealittle to raise money for other people so it feels strange writing about myself but I would like to say yes to this opportunity and book it in as soon as possible. So if you don't ask you don't get right?
Use of Funds:
All money will go towards my surgery and travel.
Anything that is left over will be donated to New Zealand Animal Rescue organisations.
