Well all my hard-work is paying off and I’m pleased to say I’m down to nearly 19 stone for the first time since I was a teenager! The skin removal surgery is getting more necessary the more weight I lose, as it gets in a vicious circle when the excess skin restricts my training.
The first step in the next process starts tomorrow when I go for my pre-op assessment for the first of six skin removal operations – obviously I am nervous but very excited about how this could change my life!
The amazing people at Tonic Cosmetics (http://www.toniccosmeticsurgery.co.uk) have offered to do the first 2 operations for free and the rest at cost price. I can’t thank them enough, but I still have a way to go. Thanks to the generosity of you all I have raised just over £5,000 but I have another £6,500 to go.
Fundraising will obviously take a back seat over the next few weeks as I focus on being fit for surgery and then recovering, but all likes, shares and comments will be gratefully received and the Go Fund me link is below if anyone can help.
Thank you for all your support and encouragement so far – watch this space to see updates as the new part of this journey begins
