One day I had had enough. Enough of the endless cycle of trying to lose weight and never being able to get to a healthy weight. I always ended up putting on more weight than I had lost and I had reached my limit, 132 kg (291lbs) to be exact. Bariatric surgery looked like my last hope and in February of 2014 I had a Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass performed. Nine months after my surgery I reached my goal weight of 65 kg (143 lbs) and from that point on I haven’t looked back! I never could have imagined the life I live now and just how much things have changed for the better. I now love exercise and would never have imagined myself running. I have completed 5km, 12km and half marathon events so far! I’m a cat person, listen to a huge array of podcasts and like to always be learning about something new.
