Losing Weight

Eman Ahmed, a 36 year-old Egyptian, weighed 1,100 pounds in February. Today, she weighs a little less than 400, a loss of more than 700 pounds. She did not gain all that weight through eating. She has lymphedema, a condition that causes body tissue to swell. Through crowd sourcing she raised funds for her travel and medical care there and at home. She went to India for the weight-loss surgery. She is now back in Egypt along with nine Indian doctors who will continue treating her.
