3 years have gone and I’ve lost 100.7kg/222lbs, my starting weight was 179.9kg, I was 26 year old, scared, nervous having reaccuring dreams I was going to die on the operating table, I did again at 84kg whilst I was about to go through Plastics, I had the most amazing support from my family and friends especially my wonderful gorgeous husband, it has not been easy, anyone who says it's the easy way out is dreaming. I am now happy at 79kg.
Food was my haven, Food was my baby, Food was my antidepressant, it was my go to whenever I was emotional,
I look like a completely different person to who I used to be, don't get me wrong I have my days of worthlessness and days I want to go and devour a Big Mac meal, but it passes over a short amount of time,
I have successfully lost over 100kg, through having a dedicated mindset and passion for making myself number one and ensuring my health is priority. Food is only 20% of the battle, mentally and physically you need to do the rest.
I passed the “number” my surgeon set as my goal weight. I no longer want to be defined by a number or my skin, the next part of my journey will involve:
* Learning to self love even harder and promote a healthy self image.
* Helping others with their journeys
* Maintaining and being accountable to myself
* Living life as Chantelle would want to
* No holding back, let’s get some NSV and bucket list stuff done this year!
* Getting toned and strong and enjoying being alive, the skin is no longer there so it’s no longer an excuse to use to get out of things.
To all my supporters, family, friends thank you for pushing me, thank you for realising how much better and stronger I can be.
@destinationbeautysurgery thank you for changing my life physically, My tiger stripes and scars I now show provides a story to tell later on down the track of the battle I went through to get my life back and breaking out of the cage I locked myself in.
Thank you Chantelle for pushing yourself each day and telling yourself that YOU can do this and YOU are the only one who can do this.
Happy 3 Year Sleeveversary Chantelle
Thank you for doing you
P.s my compression garments make me look like a sausage roll
