Obesitaspatiënt valt 115 kilo af en de voor- en nafoto's zijn verbluffend

In 2015 woog Elena Goodall (29) nog 184 kilo. Twee jaar later is ze maar liefst 115 kilo kwijt én heeft ze deelgenomen aan haar eerste halve triatlon.

“Toen artsen me vertelden dat ik niet oud zou worden, schrok ik zo dat ik besloot mijn leven drastisch om te gooien”, zegt ze tegen de Australische website 9News.

Met succes: in juni dit jaar slaagde Goodall er na een jaar trainen in om mee te doen aan een triatlon. Ze won niet, maar dat ze de finish haalde was voor haar ‘de grootste persoonlijke overwinning ooit’. “Ik had altijd een reden om veel te eten, maar daar ben ik nu helemaal klaar mee. Ik heb mezelf uit de put getrokken en hoop anderen te motiveren om hetzelfde te bereiken.”

‘Het grootste voorbeeld ooit’
De Australische schaamt zich niet voor hoe ze er ooit uitzag. Op Instagram deelt ze geregeld ongelooflijke voor- en nafoto’s en wordt hierdoor (ook door obesitaspatiënten) ‘het grootste voorbeeld ooit’ genoemd.

I would like to share with you another #beforeandafter I really want people to know that my story is much more than just #weightloss it is a story of courage determination and drive my story really changed once I found triathlon in the beginning it was all about weight loss and how much I had lost how many cms I had dropped ect then I found triathlon and I started to forget about all that non important stuff it became more about what foods I was eating to properly fuel my body to be able to do an endurance sport it became about being strong enough to swim kms ride for hrs and run and not die 😂 it became about breaking physical boundaries I once never thought were possible and pushing myself to new limits triathlon has changed my life in ways I never even imagined once I push through one barrier I set sights on the next I am truly so very proud as I sit here with tears rolling down my face (tears of pride) and I will be loud about it I don't share my story to brag or big note I do it in hope I can help others I'm not saying stop worrying about weight I just saying stop making it your focus find your triathlon and with kicking goals there and everything els will eventually fall into place I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank all of my amazing and supportive family and friends and also you guys my beautiful followers each and every one of you have been amazing the amount of messages I get some have put tears in my eyes I'm just so happy I can make a difference 💕 so much love for you all #beforeandafterweightloss #weightloss #weightlossjourney #weightlosstransformation #vsg #vsgcommunity #triathlon #triathlete #ironman #ironmanaustralia #cairnsim #cairnsim703 #cairnsim2017 #cairnsironman
