For Angela Sweeney, a 41-year-old mom from Lake Ann, Michigan, losing weight was supposed to be a good thing. She managed to drop almost 300 pounds over three years, a hugely impressive achievement. However, when she had plastic surgery to remove her excess skin, things went horribly wrong.
Sweeney had been severely obese for most of her adult life, in fact. In an interview on the television show The Doctors, she said, “In my twenties I was probably always 400 pounds if not higher, so I took it into my own hands. It took me about three years, and I’ve now lost 289 pounds.”
