Kaylee Bonnett had always been overweight. Ever since her childhood, she weighed heavier than what should have been her ideal weight. Her highest being 481 pounds, she had self-esteem issues and health complications due to her weight as well. High school wasn't a good time for her because she would face a lot of bullying from the other kids. She started hating life because it became such a struggle for her.
Not just that, her body size was seriously becoming a burden for her. Kaylee also suffered from high blood pressure and pre-Diabetes pretty early in her 20s. She was warned by her doctor that she could land up in a lot of trouble if she didn't change her lifestyle. She wanted to get gastric bypass surgery, but apparently, her weight was too much so she didn't qualify for it either.
From there, her journey started. Let's find out what Kaylee looks like now.
She weighed about 300 pounds on her wedding day. Kaylee never thought being overweight could lead to such terrible health consequences. Sure, she weighed higher than the normal amount, but when she started suffering from health problems, she couldn't take it any longer. She had to act now or else it would be too late.
She began to suffer from co-morbidities due to her weight at a very early age.
For this surgery, Kaylee had to lose at least 30 pounds by herself to get approval.
She started focusing on her diet which included lower calorie intake, high protein, no carbs, and lots of exercise.
She would post photos on her social media accounts to tell the world how proud she was to be losing those pounds.
By the time the date of the surgery came up, Kaylee had lost 70 pounds only in the span of 5 months!
After the surgery, Kaylee experienced a lot of pain and discomfort. But that didn't stop her. She continued with her workout regime and her diet because she wanted to lose more weight.
She cut down on sugars from her diet and eliminated fats altogether. Her calorie intake was strictly only 800 per day.
