Thankfully, Nikki’s surgery was a success, and she lost 207lbs in a year.
She attended therapy sessions on a regular basis to try and get to the route of the problem with her weight.
But her weight loss hit a wall when Nikki’s friend, Michael, died after undergoing weight-loss surgery.
“Earlier this year, my best friend Michael had a gastric bypass, and he died. That haunts me.”
She struggled to find her motivation, but Dr. Now told Nikki if she lost more weight she could have a skin removal surgery that would rid of the excess skin on her stomach.
Later that year she had a whopping 56lbs of excess skin removed from her stomach.
With her weight now at 236lbs, Nikki was able to buy the first pair of jeans.
Nikki was also able to ride a bike for the first time in years.
She now weighs a fantastic 194lbs!
