With encouraging photos on social media, people often get inspired to change their hair color or buy a new outfit. However, this time, they motivated Australian mother managed to lose 150 lb! Her story shows that pregnancy is no excuse for neglecting your health and body.

How it started

Five years ago, Casey Gemmell from Sydney, Australia, ordered an extra-large Batgirl dress online to dress up and look great at her son's first birthday party. However, a few days after the party, Casey saw her photos on Facebook and realized it was very difficult to identify with the image:

I thought 'That's not me, what a terrible angle.' But then another photo was posted—from a worse angle. I kept waiting for a good angle, and it never arrived.

At first, the young mother felt sorry for herself, but that didn’t last long. At that time, Casey weighed incredible 360 lb. She understood she needed to make a radical change in her life.

Regular exercise

The girl started intensive work-outs. She made physical exercises a regular part of her everyday life. However, it isn’t easy to start training when you know nothing about it. She therefore downloaded a mobile application that offered different training programs. Its first order was a jogging route of 3 miles every day.

Adjusted diet

Casey had to eradicate cheese, pasta, bread, and soft drinks from her diet forever:

I started to change my diet by just cutting out those four specific foods and nothing else. It was a massive challenge because at 33, I had a lot of food tendencies that were hard to break.

Motivation

At first, it was difficult for her to find the motivation to go to the gym or to run every day after work, but her husband offered to run with her so that she wouldn’t see it as a burden.

Surgery

Undergoing surgery to remove the excess skin after such weight loss won’t be easy since these operations are very expensive. Luckily, the woman doesn’t lose faith, and with the help of GoFundMe service, seeks to continue her journey to a slim body.

In short, nobody said that this task would be simple. In fact, Casey must still struggle with the temptation of harmful food and laziness. However, her desire to finish it and support from relatives will help her to reach her desired dream. Stay strong, Casey!
