Woman Who Lost 150 Lbs Shares Honest Photo About The Reality Of Extreme Weight Loss
This warning, along with her rejection from four musical schools- all which told her she was too large to expect to be cast- prompted Aubrey to undergo bypass surgery.
She then made some huge lifestyle changes- swapping to a healthy diet, and starting to regularly work out.
Now, two years later, Aubrey is 150 pounds lighter, and a UK size 14. She has become a hugely popular blogger, posting Instagram scenes to over 50,000 followers.
// the left; October 7, 2013, right before they wheeled me into surgery. Gastric Bypass surgery SAVED ME. Objective of narrative. I literally do not care if you agree with my selection, or wish I had done it “naturally”, it saved my life, period. Weighing 353 lbs at 23 years of age was the ultimate low phase in my young adult life, and I took any way out that I could. Not even 2 years post op, and I’ve lost 156 pounds, I look at the world differently, and ya know what? The world looks at me differently. I’ve never felt shame , nor will I ever feel shame about my choice to have weight loss surgery. It’s a life saving thing for many humans on this globe. Those who are successful understand the sacrifice and hard work it takes. I’ve ran just as hard as my tool to get where I am, and I know how hard I’ll have to keep working to get where I’m running.

But such an extreme transformation hasn’t been without its challenges. Aubrey lately posted a series of photo, presenting her excess skin, and explaining that she wasn’t going to let it take away from her accomplishment 😛 TAGEND
// feeling amazing& strong after today’s workout, which btw, including 60. FACKING. BURPEES. which, I don’t have to modify anymore, that’s pretty cool! I cannot wait to see these muscles grow! Excess scalp is patently a real thing in my life, but damn, I’m going to work my ass off to fill this skin with muscle before I decide to have it all cut off. I owe it to myself to try. I know you cannot reverse years of obesity& strain on the scalp, but I’m going to give this process my all. I want to build the best version of “me”. Inside& out!
