Obesity is one of the pending global issues of today. There are various different reasons that can influence extreme weight gain. Some people eat because they're bored, some stress-eat, and others develop a fast food and junk food addiction.

Susan Farmer used to weigh 607 lb. The woman was suffering from an eating disorder – she would eat days on end, unable to curb her appetite. Needless to say that Susan's diet consisted of only fatty, high-calorie foods.

Farmer was dreaming of losing weight and getting rid of her huge stomach for a long time.

It's like being set free from prison.

— shared Susan in one of her interviews.

In 2015, the American took part in the show My 600-lb Life. The TV show's experts prescribed Farmer to get a gastric bypass surgery and liposuction, but before this, she managed to lose 99 lbs by herself.

After all the procedures, with the help of experts, Susan managed to change her eating habits and started to exercise regularly. As a result, she managed to lose almost 400 lbs.

But the woman's transformation only started there. Then, Farmer had the excess skin removed as it caused her a lot of troubles and gave her backache.

The first thing Susan did after the procedure and recovery was to go to the shop to get a pair of jeans which she hadn't worn since her high school years.

It seems silly, but I just want to wear a pair of jeans, just like any normal person.

— confessed the American.

Susan's life and appearance have already drastically changed for the better, but the woman keeps on working on herself, proving to other obese people that you can start over at any given moment.
