This Woman’s Remarkable Story Will Move You
Obesity is a huge problem in the United States. In addition, a large percentage of the population is grossly overweight. This isn’t really all the surprising when you consider the fact that the average American diet is comprised of fast food, processed food, and downright unhealthy junk. And exercise? What on Earth is that?
The story you’re about to read concerns a woman who was overweight for her entire life, through no fault of her own. She was diagnosed with a condition that resulted in her gaining lots of weight, no matter what she ate or did. She didn’t let that dictate her life, though. She decided to take her life back into her own hands and change.
Meet Joanna. For most of her 31 years, she has dealt with being overweight due to polycystic ovarian syndrome.
Irrespective of what she ate, she would always gain weight.
It was Joanna’s dream to have children, but her weight issues were an obstacle to that dream. She decided to take her doctor’s recommendation to undergo gastric bypass surgery to increase her chances of becoming pregnant.
Before the procedure, she weighed 329 pounds.
After 10 months of her surgery, and a regular gym routine, she lost 140 pounds!
Three years later, she fulfilled her dream and gave birth to a son. Two years later, she had another baby boy.
She also had her excess skin removed.
Joanna looks incredible!
With the right intention, hard-work, and determination, anything is possible. Just look at what Joanna achieved!
