She Weighed 400 lb, Lost Half Her Body Weight In One Year. Her Final Makeover Will Boggle Your Mind.
Weight loss is a subject that needs to be tackled delicately. But here is a real inspiration for all those trying to lose those extra kilos. Weighing at 4oo lbs, a woman from Portland, Kaitlyn Smith achieved what many of us only dream of.
#4 How it began:
At the prime age of 20, Smith weighed 414 lbs qualifying as morbidly obese and a natural target for all the bullying. She had even contemplated gastric surgery but changed her decision after she came across a rather rude doctor.
#3 Conquering the demons:
Smith realised, in order to achieve what she had in her mind, she had to work hard, sweat it out and stay strong. The biggest challenge was making her mind. She had to control her thoughts and not bully herself. Smith stuck to a taxing six-day exercise schedule and got the help of a weight loss coach.
Results started showing after 15 months but there was still something left to be handled.
#2 Phase 2
Kaitlyn had now lost a good 208 lbs which culminated in the excess skin which lead to many complications like infections, tearing and mental distress. She said, “losing 208lbs left me with lots of excess skin which leads to many complications such as infection, tearing, joint pain and mental distress.”
She had to create a GoFundMe page to support her possibilities of getting a surgery to get rid of the excess skin.

However, as fate would have it when Doctor Dr Michael Salzhauer came to know about her story, he offered to do it for free. After 3 surgeries she feels and looks different. “Now I feel like I’m actually living again and enjoying every day I’m blessed with. I’m always trying new things and not taking life for granted. I am no longer a bitter, envious, depressed teenager. I am a happy, smiley, outgoing girl who loves herself and life.”
