Here's What 3 Years Of Hard Work And Diet Does To A 300lb Woman.

Anyone who has had to struggle with weight issues will tell you that losing weight is a lot easier said than done. There are so many delicious temptations out there that prevent people from shedding a few extra pounds. Then there's the individual's state of mind, which also plays a role in the ongoing struggle to undergo a healthy transformation. And no one knows this better than Laura Micetich, also known as The Iron Giantess. She used to weigh more than 300 lbs, and at 22, she was facing all sorts of health issues because of her weight. But wait until you see what working out and dieting did for this remarkable young woman.

This was Laura Micetich back when she weighed more than 300 lb, and was facing a bunch of issues.

Not only did she suffer from hyperthyroidism and high blood pressure, but doctors told her that she was a pre-diabetic. Naturally, she realized she needed to make a change right away if she wanted to make it to 30.

Micetich, who's known as the Iron Giantess on social media, shared her inspirational weight-loss story.

Her journey towards a healthier version of herself was difficult, and it's something that many people can relate to, especially the part about wanting to give up. But then she had an epiphany and adopted a "can do" attitude.

In 2014, Laura was over 300 pounds and that was the year that she chose to make a huge change.

But the truth was that she had been heavy since she was a child. She even described herself as "a ball buster," which is why it took her so long to openly admit that she felt insecure about her outward appearance.

For years, she played it cool, as if she didn't have a care in the world, until she decided to change it up.

She decided that the best way to lose weight would be to start lighting weights. So, before long, she was inside a gym reaching for the barbell, and she fell in love with the concept of weightlifting from the start.

At first, she decided that exercise and dieting would be the best way to go, but she needed some extra help.

She used barbells to gain muscle mass, but she knew she would undoubtedly need to deal with her excess skin, so, according to her Instagram, she did undergo abdominoplasty with Dr. Joseph Michaels to remove some skin.
