Abbey Carter – Inspirational Story

Hiya so here’s my story 2 years ago I was on 40 pain killers a day and crutches to walk any distance ! My disks in the bottom of my spine where degenerating at a drastic rate and my spinal consultant side I needed to loose between 6-7 st (38 -44kg or 84-98lb) before he could operate on my back. So on the 21st December 2015 I had gastric bypass surgery. In the last 22 mths I have since lost 11 1/2 st (161 lb) and seem to be maintaining my weight. I have in the last 8 mths take up running and in sept I completed my 1st half marathon ! I have had my ups and down and in march this year ended up having surgery again as I had a complication with one of the new tubes they created which decided it would telescope inside itself repeatedly !! I have been extremely lucky though this whole process I think and yes it’s been hard but it’s the best thing I have ever done x it’s hard now to to try maintain as the sweet demons are back ! So I have a devil on each shoulder I battle with daily x 1 says eat it eat it sugar mmmmmm the other says no no don’t eat it cause you will get fat !! So that’s my story x hope it wasn’t to boring x
