- Rebecca, a 24-year-old woman, has revealed how low self-esteem made her balloon into 32st
- The woman said that the unhealthy weight gain started when she started bingeing on junks
- Rebecca's eating lifestyle was also caused by the bullying she faced when she was in college
A 24-year-old lady, Rebecca Wood, who has been bingeing on food after her emotional breakdown to post-traumatic stress disorder and ballooned to 32st, has lost 14st of it.
The UK Sun reports that she was also bullied in school for being a “girly-girl” and that caused her to ramp up weight as she became so insecure.
As a way of escape, the 24-year-old started eating indiscriminately, chowing down on things like tubs of ice cream, Nutella spread, and others.
It should be noted that Rebecca was also a full-time caregiver to her patents. She said that though there are different reasons why she gained weight, being talked down on in high school was a major one.
“There are several reasons I gained weight the main reason, however, was because of my experience in high school.
“I was bullied pretty badly, at first it was because I didn't fit in as I have always been a ‘girly girl’ in a sea of the modern era of chavs,” she said.
Rebecca also revealed that when she was 21, her weight shot up to a staggering 32st, saying that was when it suddenly hit her that she needs to change her lifestyle.
In October 2018, she had a gastric bypass surgery which helped to reduce the way she eats as she switched to a ketogenic diet.
Along the way, she started integrating moderate exercise in her regime with walking and swimming, doing it for at least three times a week.
In two years, she was able to cut off 14st. She said that with her weight loss success, she feels more confident and content with her life.
