Catherine Shanklin from Oklahoma City refused gastric bypass surgery, after which she lost 120 kilograms naturally, Daily Mail reported.
She tipped the scales at 420lbs and wore 6XL pants size at her heaviest, the source noted.
Specialists recommended her to undergo gastric bypass surgery, a radical surgery that reduces the volume of her stomach.
Catherine was afraid of surgery and possible complications, so she decided to lose weight naturally. She persevered to lose 260lbs entirely naturally. Now its weight is close to normal, the situation is complicated only by excess skin with a volume of almost 10 kg.
Now Catherine is on the waiting list for an operation to remove excess skin.
