The extra Skin that remains – I hope you know, how beautiful you are.

My big Sister isn’t only older than me, she also have been the heaviest of all of us – us four sisters. She struggled with overweight since we’ve been children. Three years ago the doctor told her, if she doesn’t get a sleeve gastrectomy, she’ll quite likely get diabetes at some point. So she got a part of her stomach removed.

She never liked to be photographed and she still hasn’t seen the pictures I’ve made. But I hope she knows how beautiful she is – have ever been.
