The woman who has a young daughter and a 22-year-old fiancée attempts to lose weight in order survive and marry her lover. Charity’s doctors say that she must slim down to 227kg before they can give her a gastric band as it is the only way to save her life.
Problems with being overweight started when Charity, now aged 38, was a little girl, she lived in an unhappy family and the only thing that brought her happiness was junk food. When she was a teen she daily ate cake for breakfast, pizza or tacos from a fast food restaurant for lunch, stew for dinner, ice-cream and cakes for evening meal.
Later she got pregnant and her 127kg turned into 254kg, furthermore she fell down stairs that provoked a disease called lymphedema. Lymphedema or lymphatic obstruction, is a condition of localized fluid retention and tissue swelling caused by a compromised lymphatic system.
Speaking about the disease she says that it feels like another whole person or hanging cinder blocks. Thus in addition to excess weight her left leg ballooned and made it even more difficult for the woman to move around.
She also had to cut out 18kg of dead muscle and tissue as the flesh eating bacteria, Necrotizing Facitis, was found in her abdomen. Now she is almost entirely house bound and has difficulties with walking and fitting into cars.
A 38-year-old woman believes that the only hope for her is the doctor in Texas who specializes in patients over 272kg who can presribe treatment and give her gastric bypass. But since she is a single mother on disabilty and there’s nobody to rely on, she is currently trying to raise $5,000 to pay for a private ambulance that will drive her to Texas hospital.
Ms Pierce set several goals: to get gastric bypass, get on TV show – My 272kg Life – to lose weight and finally to marry her boyfriend, Tony Sauer. Сurrently she has 1,200-calorie a day diet and does physical exercises twice a day.
“It’s a very long road, but I’m going to get there. I refuse to get married in my living room.
To me that’s demeaning and it doesn’t make me feel like a normal person. It makes me feel like an outcast.
I want to be able to walk up the aisle. I plan to wear a wedding dress, cowboy boots and a cowgirl hat. I want to dance all night.
Tony has given me hope for the first time in years and I’ll do whatever it takes to turn my life around,” Ms Pierce said.
