This Bride Got a Wedding Redo After Losing 100 Pounds

Cherie Judd's weight loss journey started as she dreamed of her perfect wedding after her boyfriend proposed.

After going on a weight loss journey, one bride got to redo the dream wedding she always wanted to have. 

Two years ago, Cherie Judd weighed 250 pounds. Her journey began when her boyfriend proposed during a romantic gondola ride. She was ready for her dream wedding in Hawaii. But not long after, Judd suffered a health crisis and opted for a small marriage ceremony. 

So the Las Vegas waitress made losing weight her priority and had bariatric sleeve surgery. She ended up losing 80 pounds, but she was left with about 10 pounds of loose skin hanging from her stomach.

“Having at least 10 pounds of extra skin is really tough,” she told Inside Edition. 

She turned to plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Zarrabi. The doctor removed more than 1 1/2 feet of excess skin. He also built her a new belly button.

Now, two-and-a-half months after the surgery, she said, “I feel like a different person.” 

She added, “I feel 100 pounds lighter because I am. I feel like my fairy tale is coming true today."

So when she finally got healthy and got the body she wanted, Cherie and husband Rich went to Hawaii to renew their wedding vows and have the dream wedding they always wanted.
