A FORMER plus-size woman shed multiple sizes to a small in just a matter of 14 months.
She said that an unflattering photo motivated her to make the drastic lifestyle change.
Seda Stack (@thesleevedchick) shared her weight loss story with over 16,000 TikTok followers.
She explained that one photo got her on a kick to start her health journey: “The picture where I saw myself and felt so much shame…” she said, sharing a photo of herself in a red flannel and beanie.
The photo encouraged her to make a dramatic decision: “I decided to have weight loss surgery and lost 150 pounds…” she explained.
She explained that she went through gastric sleeve surgery, a bariatric surgery where almost 80 percent of the stomach is removed.
“From a 3x to a small in 14 months baby. Gastric Sleeve Success!” she said, adding the hashtags #weightlosstransformation and #glowup.
People took to the comments to share their thoughts on her transformation.
“You killed it girl!! Continued success,” said one supporter.
“Your journey is inspiring! Thanks for sharing,” said another.
“So freaking gorgeous,” said a third.
“Killed it!!!!!” said a fourth.
A few women were interested in pursuing the same procedure but had one concern in mind.
“Thanks for sharing your story. I have my first appts coming up. Random though, have any of your tattoos changed since weight loss?” asked one, asking about the sleeves of tattoos on her arms.
The content creator noted that was a change: “They just got smaller! But I didn’t have any on my ribs or upper arms before,” she said.
