A 33-year-old woman has lost so much weight years after feeling suicidal because of her body but she says she’s still not happy with her body.
Gemma Brockway said she was at breaking point when her weight got to 30stone.
Back in 2014, she was contemplating suicide when a text from her friend “saved her life” and sparked an incredible weight loss journey.
While on her weight loss journey, she reconnected with her sister’s friend in school named Phil Hughes, who used to weigh 46 stone. Together, they motivated each other to slim down.
Phil, from Halewood, once wore a size 7XL shirt but managed to shed 30 stone by cutting out McDonald’s and bacon butties. As for Gemma, before she reconnected with Phil, she underwent a gastric bypass in November 2016 which helped her lose weight and keep it off for good.
She had tried other weight loss methods but she always gained the weight back, she told Liverpool Echo.
After meeting Phil, they started helping each other to lose more weight. The couple got engaged just before Christmas last year and are supporting each other in their new, healthy lifestyles.
Now, Gemma said she’s struggling with her excess skin. She explained that it makes hate her body and she won’t let her fiance see her naked because of the excess skin.
Gemma said: “It’s just so disheartening that I’ve got to where I am, I’ve done all this and I still hate my body.
“When I take selfies and post them on Facebook, it’s always of just my face. People always say ‘you look amazing’ and ‘you’ve lost so much weight, you look so happy’ and my face is but I’m still struggling.”

It goes to show U the zeal and enthusiasm amongst the youth, it’s only making up our minds as youths, if we collectively agree we could be a force to reckon with in electioneering in Nigeria politics , imagine if independent candidacy is approved it.

Maybe INEC should recommend the #BBNaija model of voting to Nigerians (₦50 or ₦100 Naira per vote per candidate whatever the case is). I think it would be interesting to see the outcome.

It doesn’t work that way.
In BBN, you can vote multiple times. In Politics, you can only vote once.
Also, note that the votes also cut across other Africa countries as well…
A movement of the masses can get corrupted by the lures of political positions, e.g NLC
Politics is different from BBN
