Registered scales, topped by nurses, share her incredible weight loss of 66 kg with 131kg
A previously obese self-proclaimed & # 39; KFC addict & # 39; who once tipped the scale with 131 kg has lost half of her body weight in an attempt to lead her best life & # 39; and to travel the world with confidence.
Until two years ago, Aisyah Machfud, a 30-year-old registered nurse from Melbourne, would secretly put two thousand calories-junk meals out of the safe haven & # 39; banging her car to feed her unremitting fast food addiction.
As a slave of emotional food, Mrs. Machfud admitted that she could never drive past KFC without ordering a meal and pressing crisps, chocolates, and donuts, but tried a “health façade & # 39; by choosing nutritious meals for friends, family and colleagues at work.
Food addiction caused her weight to skyrocket, while her wardrobe was full of 26-size clothes – but now she has more confidence than ever to show off her new body weight of 65 kg, slim and big.

Since then she has lost half of her body weight (66 kg) and has regained a passion for life, work and travel
Mrs. Machfud’s mate, bullied out of her childhood because of her weight, rose further in her twenties by the death of her father and two consecutive toxic relations.
& # 39; My father died in 2008 after the diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease. Two years before he died, he could not remember who I was – it was heartbreaking, “she said, adding that food her & # 39; way of dealing & # 39; was.
& # 39; I was on autopilot when I ate. I did not even like the taste, it was like cardboard for me. I have just used it to numb my emotions. & # 39;
From an external perspective, it seemed that Mrs. Machfud was a healthy eater, with the nurse carefully taking care of healthy meals for her family and partner and for salads for her colleagues at work.
Then and now: Mrs. Machfud changed her life by removing daily fast food outbreaks from the secret of her car – today she weighs 65 kg.
What they did not see was the amount of food I was eating when I was alone in my car, or in my bedroom when I was home alone. It was my secret shame.
& # 39; I always thought of everything I could eat that day. Food controlled my thoughts, but I felt I had no control over my body that was striving for it.
Sometimes I longed for fried food from the moment I woke up. I grabbed what was within reach, usually a hidden bag of chips, a block of chocolate or some donuts. & # 39;
Machfud has & # 39; every day & # 39; KFC & # 39; eaten & # 39 ;, her favorite meal was a caloric double cracker with large fries, potato and gravy, three bad wings and a can of Pepsi.

& # 39; I ate everything in the car, which was my safe haven, and I destroyed the evidence before I went inside.
& # 39; It was an emotional release. But I never felt better about it. It was completely numb. & # 39;
Chronic obesity made it difficult for Ms. Machfud to perform her duties as a nurse, and led to her losing confidence in giving health advice to patients because of her size.
She also revealed that while she loved to travel, she became anxious while flying because of humiliation & # 39; to squeeze her chair.
The catalyst for the weight loss of Ms. Machfud was when her mother died in 2016 of a neurological disorder
& # 39; I could see that everyone was praying that I was not sitting next to them. Then I would meet everyone as I walked through the aisles.
I would always have to ask for a belt magnifier, and everyone would look at me.
& # 39; My existence just seemed to make people very angry. I just wanted to disappear at those moments. & # 39;
The catalyst for her dramatic weight loss came in 2016 when her mother died after years of fighting a neurological disease.
After she & # 39; all diets out & # 39; had tried, Ms Machfud decided to undergo gastro-intestinal surgery, after which she lost an incredible 65 kg in just one year.
She now goes to the gym three times a week with an emphasis on strength training and observes a low-carbohydrate, protein-rich diet full of fresh vegetables and lean meat.
& # 39; The world has opened for me. My weight does not stop me anymore and I feel healthier than I have in my whole life & # 39;

The new slim physique of Machfud allows her to travel freely and with confidence to the far corners of the earth, including Sri Lanka, Mexico and Colombia.
Her new physique of 66 kg has given Mrs Machfud a new lease of life and a renewed passion for travel. She even started a Europe-wide adventure and has traveled across the globe from Indonesia to Bolivia.
Now I can actually be active and explore nature, while I was not able to do that because of my size.
I have climbed pyramids, explored caves and ancient ruins and even skydived in Mexico. I swam in Thailand, legalized in waterfalls to Sri Lanka and walked in Colombia.
& # 39; The world has opened for me. My weight no longer stops me and I feel healthier than I do in my entire life. & # 39;
