Kylie's Stomach Surgery
Organized by: Kylie Goodsell
I hit my highest weight shortly after 2 year old was born, Dec 2013. I am 5'5'' and weighed 269 pounds. After years of planning, saving, and careful consideration, I had formulated a plan to have Gastric Sleeve Surgery. I genuinely felt like I was dying under the weight and no matter what I tried to do, I just couldn't get it to go away! The doctors agree'd and I started the program. My weight loss journey started Oct 4 2015. Through this program, I learned how to eat properly. I learned the best exercise for my body. I learned about making healthier choices. On Dec 4 2015, my surgery was preformed at Memorial Jacksonville. Through extreme efforts in conjunction with utilizing my new tool, I have officially surpassed my weight loss goal both in weight number and in clothing size. I went from 269 pounds to 140.2 pounds. I went from a tight size 28 to a snug size 8 just since December! I am starting this crowd sourcing effort to try to repair some of the damage that has been done to my body. due to the weight loss, I have a severe "mothers apron" or extra skin that hangs from my stomach. I am in constant pain from the extra skin pulling. The doctor has suggested tools that do help to a degree to reduce the pain but even they have said nothing will "cure" it until I have the extra skin removed. I dont have insurance and would have to pay for this entirely out of pocket. I know that is NOT your problem and I feel silly even asking but, If you have anything you could spare even if its a $1 would you please consider donating towards my surgery?
