A WOMAN has revealed she gained 220 pounds while pregnant with twins.
TikTok user Vanessa Karlowitsch shared before and after photos, and people marveled at the comparison.
She wrote, “This was me before I was pregnant with twins and this was me after I had twins.”
At her peak, she weighed 410 pounds, showing her weight gain as a result of her pregnancy.
On her @revangevanessa account, she said: “But I had a chance to do something, for my kids, for my health, for myself, for a better life.
“After 7 months I’ve already lost 171 pounds, I’m going to do it because my life is worth it.”
Vanessa showed how she shifted a lot of the weight she gained, but left excess skin behind as a result.
However, she is determined to prove everyone wrong and shift those last few pounds.
In a second video, she explained: “My entire family suffers from a metabolic disorder that makes it difficult for us to lose weight and makes it difficult for our body to burn fat.
“I never gave up because I don’t want to be fat anymore.
“This time my doctor recommended a gastric bypass so that I can’t gain so much weight again because a certain hormone escapes during the bypass, which can normalize the metabolism somewhat.
“It’s been almost nine months since gastric bypass surgery and I’ve lost 85kg through exercise, healthy eating and a bypass.”

Another added: “I’m so sorry this happened to you, you are so strong! You are a great mom.”
