REVIEW: SHE CAME TO TURKEY, SHE BECAME A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT PERSON! WHAT THE FORTUNE TELLER SAID CHANGED HER LIFE

A young woman who reached 180 kgs at her heaviest time was horrified by what a fortune teller she went to told her. Sally, 30, who radically changed her life with a plane ticket to Antalya in October 2020, is now very happy.

Compiled by Turkey Medicals – The life of a young woman has changed radically with what the fortune teller she went to told her. Sally, 30, started gaining weight at a young age and became pregnant with her first child when she turned 18. The young woman, who later lost weight control even more, gained 65 kg in less than two years.

She consumed fast food-style meals that she told her house to take out every day and even twice a day. Not only that, Sally continued with snacks such as chocolate, chips and sweets.

SHE REACHED 180 KILOGRAMS, WORE A SIZE 60

Sally, at her most overweight, fit the definition of “morbidly obese”. In other words, he had gained enough weight to have a bad effect on her health due to the amount of fat in her body. Sally had reached 180 kgs and was having trouble fitting into a size 58-60.

Sally, a mother of one child, has been on a diet for many years, but without success. However, he was unaware that her life would change in the face of what he heard when he went to a fortune teller. After the fortune teller who made the young woman change her life told Sally that she had no future if she continued her unhealthy habits, nothing was the same again.

.
SHE CAME TO ANTALYA, HE BECAME A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT PERSON

Sally, who was 28 at the time, started her weight loss journey like a bomb and bought a plane ticket to Antalya to undergo a tube stomach surgery in October 2020. The woman who underwent surgery in a hospital here was unrecognizable only a year after the operation. Sally, who has surprisingly turned into someone else by losing 100 kgs, has dropped as much as 78 kgs.

Sally, who lives in England, told that she had been trying to lose weight for years but felt helpless because she had failed. Rebeca said: “I was really horrified and scared by what he told me when I visited the fortune teller. I realized once again that I had to take action when he said he didn’t see a life for me on the cards,” she said.

.
THE OPERATION IN TURKEY CHANGED HER LIFE

Sally, who said that her life has changed radically thanks to the surgery she underwent when she came to Turkey, said: “My weight started to drop rapidly after the surgery. This has changed my life,” she said.

Sally struggled with bullies during and after her teenage years. Every time he was depressed, every time he was sad and bored, he turned to food to feel good. She began to gain weight rapidly, especially when she became pregnant with her daughter who is 12 years old today.

.
THEY NICKNAMED HER, SHE GAVE HERSELF UP TO EAT OUT OF SADNESS

Sally, who said that she was educated at a girls’ school as a child and was bullied really badly, said: “They called me ‘double-decker Sally’ because I was bigger than other girls at school. I ate constantly to feel better,” she shared her feelings, saying.

“I would start the day with four pieces of buttered toast and I wouldn’t hesitate to repeat it if I wasn’t full or got hungry again in a short time,” Sally said, adding that she eats her lunch and dinner from fast food restaurants with takeaways.

.
SHE COULDN’T GET PREGNANT BECAUSE OF HER OBESE FAT

With her overweight spiraling out of control, Sally struggled with her mental health. The young woman suffered from anxiety and depression. She wanted to have another child with her fiancé, but had difficulty conceiving due to her weight.

Sally, who is over 180 kgs, said: “I’ve tried to ignore the mess I’ve been in for years. I wasn’t leaving the house without my mom or my fiance by my side,” she said, adding: “I was picky about where to go in case I didn’t fit in the seat or the toilet. There have even been people swearing at me from passing cars.”

.
I WAS ABOUT TO GIVE UP FULL

Sally had tried dieting over the years, failed and felt ‘defeated’. and just before her fortune-telling visit in 2020, she was ready to “give up”. But this visit literally changed everything for her.

Sally, who said that she left the fortune teller in tears, stressed that although what she heard upset her, it changed her life. When Sally did research on stomach surgeries, she found out how high the prices in her country were.

The stomach surgery she would have had in the UK would have cost her £12k. In Turkey, it was possible to have the same operation for 3 thousand pounds sterling. And in October 2020, she flew to Antalya with her mother, who, like herself, underwent a tube stomach operation at medical hospital in Lara.

.
HER MOTHER ALSO BECAME A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT PERSON THROUGH SURGERY

Turkey Medicals, “The operation involved the removal of three-quarters of the stomach and the formation of an “arm” or tube, the remaining amount of which goes to the intestine,” was said. After the operation, Sally moved back to the UK and began to follow a diet of liquid, mashed and soft foods for a month before being able to eat solid foods again. Sally said: “Mum came with me and was a huge support. Everything went well, but it was very difficult to adapt to my new diet,” she said, describing the operation and recovery process.

Sally said: “I can only eat small amounts every two hours now. And for dinner, I usually consume a very small portion of what I have cooked for my family. I don’t feel hungry or miss food,” she said.

.
SHE LOST 104 KILOGRAMS

Within a year, Sally managed to lose exactly 104 kilograms and dropped to 78 kilograms. Sally, 30, who explained that she wears clothes between 40 and 44, said she is very happy that she has a long and healthy life ahead of her.

Sally’s mother Jayne also managed to lose a staggering 85lbs after the operation. Sally said that her mother also did an amazing job, adding that “the weight lifted off me and I lightened up like a bird,” adding that she was very happy with her new life.

“We would like to come to Turkey again to have a recovery operation for sagging formed in our body after the weight loss process,” Sally says. “I like to take very long walks, go out and socialize in ways I never imagined would be possible until today,” she says and adds:

.
I’M LIVING WITHOUT PAIN

“Most importantly, I am able to move around comfortably and live without pain. I hope that losing weight will help my fertility and having another baby. This surgery in Antalya Turkey has changed my life with the help of Turkey Medicals.”
