A mother lost 126 pounds after learning that “fat-shaming” works, and is on-track to maintain her healthier lifestyle.
Wisconsinite Ali Stutz Buch, a 29-year-old hairstylist from Milwaukee, was consuming 6,000 calories a day when she went shopping for a wedding dress.
When she picked out a dress, the salesperson snatched it from her, stating, “This won’t fit you.”
Buch was then directed to the plus-size section.
Leaving the store, Buch was hurt but ultimately decided that playing the role of the victim was not the
“Of course I was aware of my size but when a stranger says something so blunt to your face it hurts. It really shattered my confidence and her comments stuck with me. It made me so sad,” she said. “I realized I needed to change. I have tough skin but this dress was for my special day and I didn’t want people to be looking at me and only noticing my weight.”
Determined to lose the weight, she cast off eighty-four pounds of fat before her wedding day.
Once 266 pounds, Buch later lost 126 of those pounds and was so proud of her progress that she sank $16,000 in cosmetic surgery to get rid of the excess skin.
For Buch, coming from a family of heavy people was no excuse, it was a warning, according to Daily Mail.
My life changed when I had my kids and I was desperate to be healthy for them. I was very close to my gran who was extremely overweight and she died aged 68 because of complications with her weight,” she said. “She never saw me graduate or got to meet my kids because she died due to something avoidable and I could see I was on that same path. I want to see my kids grow up, I love to play with them on the beach and race around after them.”
In the end, Buch broke the cycle, and is determined to stay on the healthy path.
