Standing and washing herself were near impossible. Webster says, "My weight is debilitating. My body is so painful, I hate it. But I say this to myself. Food is an addiction to me and my addiction is killing me." After travelling 8 hours for a consultation, she learned that she would have to lose 50 pounds before the surgery could even take place. It took 3 months, but she got there and the surgery went ahead. 650pound3 [bctt tweet="650 Pound Food Addict Lost A Third Of Her Body Weight After Gastric Surgery"] Before the procedure, Webster admitted to being a food addict. Despite fearing that it would cost her her life, she could not stop binge eating. "I've done this to myself," she says. Because of her weight, Webster lives with her parents who enable her addiction. "When I start my day, I can't wait to start eating," she explains. "My mom or dad will make me a plate and send it up to me so I don't have to go downstairs until breakfast." 650pound2 To make sure that she didn't regain any weight she'd lost, Webster met with a therapist.

She's given herself a real chance at having a life! Kudos, Nikki! What do you think of Nikki's inspiring progress?
