Crossing The Finish Line!

Please watch the video above, it will help explain everything below! 

I'm trying to raise money for my body lift surgery for the following reasons:
1. I can't afford it on my own in the near future and I am healthy enough now to have one surgery to complete this! Many people need to have two surgeries (Upper and lower) because they aren't healthy enough to have it all at once. Recovery is SERIOUS from this surgery, so only having to do it once sounds awesome! 
2. I have medical and emotional struggles because of the excess skin (Sores, Posture/Back pain issues, and obviously it's emotionally taxing to be deformed after everything i've overcome so far.) 
3. I would like to move on with my life and feel completely healthy for the first time since I was a little girl! 
4. I want to be an example that you should go after your goals without hesitation, and that FEAR, shame, and embarrassment are just roadblocks to success. 

I am ready to dive into this, to get through this final obstacle and CROSS THE FINISH LINE. To be the athlete I dream of, to be in the best shape of my life. To live free of the remnants of my obesity!  To pave the way for others, and help people who are searching for the same freedom! 

To accomplish this would liberate me and allow me to move on and achieve other goals in my life. Thank you for stopping by even to read this, even if you can’t donate, but just to be part of this story for a moment! Also if you have weight loss or fitness goals, NEVER GIVE UP! It took me 25 years of being overweight, but I never gave up!! 

I started a blog to try and express some of the issues I was having, I was not good at keeping up with it, but some of these blogs help elaborate what I have been struggling with if you want to read!

Read my blog about 30k to manage the spectrum!

Lastly, if you're wondering about the random bikini shot in the video, it stemmed from an idea that my mentor had about doing this video all around wearing a bikini. I shot the video in May and a pool was surprisingly hard to procure, so if you want to know about me and my Bikini aspirations read the blog below!

I'm so excited at the progress so far! Thank you so much to everyone who is helping me! A Broadcasting company might be publishing an article about my story to see if any larger publications pick it up! It would be amazing if they did! Unless then, help me by sharing! I love you all so much and your generosity has been so amazing!

I am a close friend of Sean Petty and I too have lost a lot of weight. My Finish Line is yet to be crossed I have had a tummy tuck but I still need the butt lift and probably a breast augmentation. I admire your story because I can relate! My daughter now faces the same challenges and it breaks my heart! your story is an inspiration honey and I'm so proud of you. You are beautiful and you are strong and all I can say is you go girl cross that finish line!!!

Congratulations on your weight loss. I had the gastric sleeve surgery and lost 125 lbs. Thankfully I had only been overweight 7 years so I have very little extra skin, but I couldn't have afforded a $20,000 skin-removal surgery if I had needed it. I hope my small contribution helps.
