170LB loss, before and after!

Hey community!
My name is Victoria, I’m 25 years old and I’ve basically struggled with my weight since I was a teen. Although I was never drastically overweight, I was always bigger than everyone else growing up. When I was 20 things went drastically down hill and had a rapid weight gain over a span of a year. I got up to 387 lbs and being 5’4 that was morbidly obese! After having a scare in the hospital I decided to wake up and take control of this! Eating disorders don’t just affect those afraid of food but those who can’t stop eating — that was my problem. I was a closet eater and turned to food for anything. It took me about 2 years to lose 150 lbs and then I became obsessed with working out, I love how it made me feel. Because I lost so much weight I was left with a ‘flap’ (as I called it) of excess skin — I had it removed (it weight 20lbs) — I hope this post serves as an inspiration to those struggling. It’s not easy, and so many times I just wanted to throw in the towel and give up - remind yourself who you’re doing this for and why and remember, you are your biggest competitor! Fight hard, work hard and crush those goals! yd6dyincvwwo.jpeg
