Anastasia Morris, a 32-year-old from Llanymynech, Wales, recently lived out a magical celebration at Disneyland after a stunning weight loss transformation. Anastasia, who once weighed 31st 13lbs, took the courageous step to undergo gastric bypass surgery in August 2023. Her incredible journey saw her shedding a whopping 11st 10lbs in just nine months.

Like many Disney fans, Anastasia dreamed of experiencing the joy and thrill of theme park rides. Unfortunately, her highest weight meant she couldn’t fit into the seats, effectively barring her from joining her son, Euan, on adventures. Determined to make a change for both herself and her family, she decided to take the drastic but necessary step of surgery. “All I ever wanted was to shop in normal clothes shops and go on a theme park ride with my son,” she shared.

The results have been astonishing. Anastasia lost 3st 7lbs in the first month alone, and now, at 19st 10lbs and a comfortable size 22, she can enjoy activities like any other Disney enthusiast. In April, she finally had her dream come true: a trip to Disneyland where she and Euan could ride everything together. “I don’t have the constant anxiety that I won’t fit in the seat or wondering if my chair will break underneath me anymore,” she enthused, reflecting the significant improvement in her quality of life.

Before her weight loss, Anastasia felt trapped, unable to participate in active outings or even dine comfortably in restaurants. “I felt like I was merely existing,” she confessed. But, now, with her renewed energy and zest for life, Disneyland was the perfect backdrop to celebrate her achievements. She encourages others facing similar challenges to take the leap sooner rather than later.

Anastasia’s journey not only highlights her incredible resilience but also underlines the joy and magic that Disney parks bring to visitors of all backgrounds. Her story is a beautiful reminder of the triumphs that lie ahead when motivation and a sprinkle of Disney magic mix.
