I Lost 80 Pounds ! (Liver Donation Journey)

So this is my update for my journey.

I am donating my live to my mother in law. Hers is shot and her best option is a healthy liver from a living donor. But in order to do this I must weigh 155 lbs. If I am too heavy my liver will probably not grow back. Fat deposits in the liver will literally stop the growth. 

So here is me before. 

I am 280 lbs here. Scary.

And this is me now !

 

I love 80 lbs. I am 200 lbs as of this morning.

I had to share. I am eating right, no more processed food, yoga, and belly dance. Yes I found out that belly dance is one of the few workouts I can do that will actually help me lose weight fast because it works the whole body at once and honestly it is so much fun to do.

Funny thing is the corset is too big now. When I am done with losing the weight I have to send all my corsets to be resized.

Oh nice lol. Have you gone done to single laces? I have a website that exchanges for smaller sizes as you lose weight. I'll look for it when I get home and pm it to you.

We do. But the liver is amazing and you can donate 70% to someone and in 6-8 weeks it will grow back. So we each end up with a whole liver afterwards !

I have linked laces and the resizing is going to be free since the designer knows me and thinks it is amazing what I am doing.
