Obese Woman Who Spent Over $100,000 On Weightloss Says She’s Even Uglier Now

obese

Formerly-obese Jessica Valoy who underwent a $108,000 slimming-down surgery has admitted she hates her new body.

The 30-year-old weighed a staggering 312lbs and struggled to squeeze into a dress size 26. After consulting with her doctor for over a year, she was advised to have a $46,650 gastric sleeve fitted. Despite the surgery initially being a success, the Seattleite suffered complications due to acid reflux so in 2016 she had to have a $59,940 gastric bypass installed.

Although she has since lost 120lbs and dropped nine dress sizes, Jessica is unhappy with her new appearance: she says the folds of saggy skin she has been left with make her miserable. She is now hoping to raise between $54,000 and $81,000 through crowdfunding for skin removal surgery.

Jessica, pictured before her weightloss, was told by medics to have a $46,650 (£34,400) gastric sleeve fitted

“Even though I’ve got a $100,000 body, I still hate the way I look and weight loss surgery has left me with rolls of saggy skin. I tell my husband I look like a Shar-Pei dog, especially when we are lying in bed of an evening, the skin on my stomach pools around me in layers,” Jessica, who works as an administrative assistant says.

“I have started to sag everywhere, my arms and legs are awful and my stomach hangs lower than my pubic area. I have lost all volume in my breasts and I have to tuck the rolls of excess skin into my clothes. I feel uncomfortable even in my own house and I believe my body is even uglier now than when I weighed 22 stone.”

Jessica admits that she had always been overweight and was constantly dieting from a young age.

“Our family revolved around food, and so we were always eating. I remember when I was around 10 years old my dad would drive me to the gym, he told me he would buy me a new laptop if I lost some weight. I went to friends’ houses with packed food for the weekend as I was always trying different diets, but it never worked,” she added.

“Over the years my weight stopped me from doing everything, I once got stuck on a rollercoaster at a theme park, they tried to force down the harness but it wouldn’t fit. On the way home from work I would stop at a fast food place, and get a pre-meal because I was so hungry. I would eat it in the car and get rid of the evidence before I got home.”

Eventually, it was decided that Jessica’s best option was surgery, and so she had a gastric sleeve fitted in 2014.

Jessica’s diet before the surgery

BREAKFAST – two croissant style breakfast sandwiches, hash browns and caramel Frappuccino

LUNCH – chicken strips and chips

DINNER – often some sort of fast food: pizza/ burger and chips

SNACKS – crisps, cookies, donuts, popcorn, ice cream

Jessica’s diet after the surgery

BREAKFAST – 1 scrambled egg with 1oz cheese, small baked sweet potato

LUNCH – chicken, fresh tomato, basil and 1oz fresh mozzarella with a drizzle of balsamic dressing

DINNER – lean meat, steamed veggies

SNACKS – beef jerky, Greek yogurt dip with veggies, cheese

Jessica said: “At first my family were almost sad that I wouldn’t be able to go out and eat with them for special occasions or join in with celebrations, but I reassured them that wouldn’t be the case. The surgery worked great at first, but I started to get acid reflux and was referred back to the hospital. Three weeks after my wedding in July 2016, I underwent a gastric bypass to correct the complications caused by my first operation.”

Speaking about how she felt at her biggest, she said: 'Over the years my weight stopped me from doing everything, I once got stuck on a rollercoaster at a theme park, they tried to force down the harness but it wouldn't fit'

Jessica, showing off her spare skin since her weight loss, is now crowdfunding to raise money for surgery

The 30-year-old is now crowdfunding to raise money for surgery. She says: “At the moment I don’t feel like there is an end in sight”

“I go to the gym regularly but I can’t see the muscles that I’m building, my rolls hide everything, it’s very frustrating. I’ve worked out that it would cost around $54,000-$81,000 for the skin removal surgery, and I’m unable to get it on my insurance.”

About the future, she says: “My husband, Francisco, is very supportive and insists he loves me just the way I am, he would have been happy if I hadn’t of had the surgeries. We work really hard and I didn’t want to ask for help, but Francisco encouraged me to start a GoFundMe page, it’s been really hard but people have been very encouraging. I hope that by sharing my journey it will help others who are just starting out, I want people to understand and see the whole process, including the complications and struggles. You don’t always get the results you hope for.”

Discussing the reason she's seeking funds, she said: 'We work really hard and I didn't want to ask for help, but Francisco encouraged me to start a GoFundMe page, it's been really hard but people have been very encouraging'
