Woman, 25, who has eaten lollipops and bags of chips, does not recognize herself after losing 62 pounds

The unhealthy eating habits of Bek Godden started as a child, where her parents had never let her eat vegetables and Pepsi Max as & # 39; water & # 39; in their household.

But despite the big sweet-tooth of the 25-year-old, her weight was never really a problem, because unhealthy food was always in balance with competitive tennis practices.

& # 39; My poor eating habits, which had always been there, did not really catch up until I left school and I was not exposed to regular exercise or sport & # 39 ;, the Gold Coast woman told FEMAIL.

After stacking her weight and ballooning on her heaviest weight at 116 kg, Bek has since covered no less than 62 kg and she no longer recognizes herself.

After leaving home, she could sit in front of the TV uninterruptedly and play skittles on cones, jelly beans, chocolate, sweet grains and the Twisties family.

There was no one around to account for her overeating, but she herself, and that's when things got out of hand.

& # 39; My turning point would be certain after I was diagnosed with hypertension (high blood pressure) and I became aware that I had become overweight, & # 39; she said.

& # 39; But when I started exercising regularly and eating healthy, I still hadn't lost weight after a few months. & # 39;

At 10 p.m. the young woman – who was then 116 kg – decided to talk to a doctor and ask why she could not have shed the pounds.

They told her that because of her high blood pressure, she would be harder to get fitter because she couldn't practice as rigorously as in the past.

It impressed her too much.

& # 39; Then I knew that I had to do something drastic to get my life back on track. & # 39;

After she had exhausted all types of diet and exercise regime, Bek was the only option left to investigate gastric surgery.

& # 39; I even told a few people that they thought this was the easiest solution and that & # 39; no one just had to operate to lose weight & # 39;, & # 39; she said.

& # 39; But until you stand in front of your own mortality because of your weight, you've tried everything else with little to no result, it's hard to imagine being desperate to remove 80 percent of your stomach to save your own life.

& # 39; If anything, I told people to avoid this operation unless they have exhausted ANY other option, because it is by far the most difficult thing I have EVER done in my life.

& # 39; Unfortunately, you do not wake up after the operation and you are lean and just eat less, & # 39; she said

& # 39; Unfortunately, you do not wake up after the operation and you are skinny and just eat less.

& # 39; You still have to do the work to lose weight and you still have a lot of the same & # 39; thick & # 39; mentality as before the operation.

& # 39; For example, I would still like to eat the same portions, and because I could eat so little, I completely lost my passion and desire for food. & # 39;

She recommends a mental health care plan to those who want to follow the same operation, in case the recovery takes its toll.

Eighteen months after the operation, Bek has lost 62 kg and now has a comfortable size of six by 54 kg.

& # 39; I don't stick to a diet because I don't want to limit myself or risk falling back to a place where food dominates my life, so I make sure I make healthy choices & she said.

& # 39; There is always a healthy alternative to making meals and it's just about being creative and planning ahead.

& # 39; When it comes to exercises, I mainly take gym classes (body pump, RPM and boxing classes are my favorites), because I think the structure and guidance force me to push myself more and I certainly feel more satisfied after a class workout.

& # 39; Sometimes it takes me a minute when people ask me how tall I am, & # 39; she said, explaining that she doesn't even recognize herself.

Her excess skin becomes & # 39; clearer & # 39; made when she loses the workout and she can eat no more than one cup of food at a time, but she slowly beckons her new body.
