This week, we celebrate the successful WeightLoss of Renae Pardon. Here’s her story:
Living never tasted so good! Before my Gastric Sleeve surgery, food ruled my life. As a working single mother, I always went for the fastest and easiest food options. I didn’t realise how much I let it consume me and the effects it had on my daughter as well. Now, I have a taste for life and I am chasing that half-century loss! At 48kgs lost in 11 months, I have lost my daughter in weight!
It’s the little things that I took for granted before, that I now love. Being able to walk more than 10km at a time, sitting on plastic chairs at restaurants and not fearing that I will break the legs, being able to breathe clearly when I lay down and having the confidence to go out with friends has been indescribable. Even though there have been some really difficult moments during my journey, I would do it all again. I am finally free and I can now see a future past tomorrow.
Congratulations Renae, what a fantastic achievement to have lost 48kg in 11 months. You are an inspiration! We are so proud of all the positive lifestyle changes you have made, not only for yourself but for your daughter as well. We hope to see you at the GC marathon next year, as part of team WLSA 2018!
