Woman Drops Over 200 Lbs. After Doctors Tell Her She’ll Never Be A Mother

She was determined “to live and be a mom no matter what.”

There’s nothing more devastating than being told that you are not capable of doing something that you’ve always wanted to do. Monet was determined to become a mother, but her doctors have told her that her health was so bad that she would never bear a child.

Monet weighed almost 375 lbs in September 2014. It’s a given fact that obesity can interfere with a woman’s capability of being pregnant. But Monet was determined “to live and be a mom no matter what,” so she decided to do something about it.

Doctors diagnosed Monet with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). Her health and weight were so unideal that she flatlined numerous times during emergency surgery. That’s when doctors told her the terrible news that her status at the time would make it impossible for her to become a mother

But since Monet really wanted to become a mom so bad, she decided to make a complete lifestyle overhaul.

She said:

“During the last part of my journey, I gained lots of weight from taking my Depo shot, so I tried Keto. I lost about 40 or 50 pounds on Keto alone after I’d reached a stall with everything else.

Keto doesn’t require exercise to be successful. I’m active every day, even if it’s just a little. I work out at least five days a week.”

Monet says she now walks just about an hour each day.

Despite successfully shedding off the pounds, Monet knew that she had to tackle bigger problems than just her weight.

“Until you fix your emotional issues and your past and present pain, you won’t truly be successful… no matter what you do or try. You won’t be successful until you shed the weight that isn’t physical.”

In 10 months she dropped an incredible 177 pounds and lost over 200 pounds in four years.

And that’s not the only good news throughout Monet’s weight loss journey, she is now a mom of two, proving the doctors wrong.

Man With Duct-Taped Shoes Leaves Surprise Donation To Children’s Charities

“It’s really a gift to all of us to see that pure demonstration of philanthropy and love.”

Alan Naiman could be perfectly described as a frugal man. In fact, the social worker bought his clothes at Costco, cut coupons, liked to take thrifty road trips for his holidays, and patched up his shoes with duct tape.

However, Alan is also the perfect example of not judging a book by its cover. Because despite his humble lifestyle and relatively modest salary working for the State of Washington’s Child Protective Services, he amassed quite a fortune.
