Hi, my name's Julie and I'm 40 years old. The reason of my page is that I need 15 000$ for a surgery to remove loose skin on my thighs. Here's my story... I've always been a bit bigger than the others around me and it always made me feel shy and uneasy. I would try to go unnoticed because my weight always bothered me. As time went on, I put on more and more weight and having two kids certainly didn't help fix that feeling of insecurity in my own body. Eventually, not only was my weight a source of shame, but also a danger to my health. Asthma, pain in my back, difficulty to walk and varicose veins, all took an unwelcomed part in my life. Every mundane thing was an enormous obstacle. I avoided going down my basement for two years for fear of being unable to getting back upstairs. Going to the Movies was an unpleasant experience every time because of my waist being too large for the seats. And the looks everybody would give me. How many times did I go to sleep crying my life for all the shame and anger I felt towards my body? Despite my partner's support through hard times, my self esteem was extremely low... So, after feeling prisoner of a body I hated and enduring the judgmental stares of others for too long, at 38 I decided to change. I got a Sleeve Gastric surgery since June 30 2015 and lost 125lb and 184 cm of mesuments. Now, I'll have another surgery in a few months for a Gastric Bypass. I'm proud of who I became, but the loose skin causes me to feel insecure still. And sometimes even more then i was. I ask for your generosity to help me enjoy life at its fullest. For the first time of my life . All donations are greatly appreciated. Thank you for your generosity
