We wrote all the things I had said to myself, what others had said, all the negative words, then the next day I went to surgery." ..
Stephanie Sedbrook was not a big kid, weight wasn’t something constantly on her mind until her parent’s divorce. Heartbroken, she fell into a coping method that felt right- eating. After a few years of this bad habit, she would weigh in at 336 pounds. It happened like a switch, one day she woke up and couldn’t deal with being overweight any longer and walked four miles. ..
She continued this trend until she eventually dropped down to 140 pounds. After this complete transformation, she decided to have her excess skin removed and receive a tummy tuck. ..
The day before her surgery, she did something for herself. She wrote all her negative thoughts and accusations, such as “never good enough” and “front butt”. This made her surgery even more symbolic, she wasn’t just she cutting off the extra skin, she was cutting out the negativity. ..
Sedbrook says herself, "I always say it's not what you are eating, it's what's eating you." She could not be happier with her transformation! How incredible! .."
