An obese woman loses a staggering 455lbs in two years
Nikki Webster is a 34-year-old woman from Little Rock, Arkansas, who weighed a staggering 649lbs.
"My weight is debilitating. My body is so painful, I hate it. But I say this to myself. Food is an addiction to me and my addiction is killing me," she said when commenting on her morbid obesity. "When I start my day, I can't wait to start eating," she added.
She lives with her parents, who prepare and cook anything and everything she wants. Every morning, her father prepares a milkshake and a plate of donuts for her and sends it upstairs via a stairlift device. "My mom or dad will make me a plate and send it up to me so I don’t have to go downstairs until breakfast," she said.
But one day, Nikki decided to make a drastic change to her life. She underwent gastric sleeve surgery and followed a strict diet thereafter. After just 12 months, she had already lost more than 200lbs! This included over 56lbs of excess skin she had surgically removed.
All in all, within a space of two years, Nikki managed to lose a whopping 455lbs — unbelievable! The young woman had never felt better.
And to celebrate, she went out and bought herself her very first pair of jeans!
Here's a short video that touches on her life as a drastically obese woman:
Nikki’s life got back on track after being seriously threatened by obesity. On her weight loss journey, a good friend of hers asked her out to dinner — the first date she'd been on in years. Not only was her private life taking a turn for the better, she was now also able to help her parents by caring for her brother who suffers from cerebral palsy. The young woman has come a very long way — a superb victory for Nikki, who can finally enjoy her body, and simply feel good about herself. Well done Nikki, we wish you all the best!
