But while the weightloss has changed her life, Kayla has been left with an 'apron' of loose skin.
'I am more self-conscious now at 189 pounds naked than I ever was at 376 pounds,' she told Cosmopolitan.com. 'I look and feel like a balloon that has lost all of its air a week after a party.'
While her gastric bypass is covered by Canadian medicare, skin-removal is not unless it to treat a medical condition like a rash or infection.
As far as insurance is concerned, Kayla's loose skin is a cosmetic problem she has to pay to fix herself.
And she's on her way! Starting a GoFundMe to finance her surgeries, Kayla is hopeful to finally win her weight loss battle.
Meanwhile, Kayla says she is staying positive.
'I [want] to be full of life and not watch it pass me by,' she says. 'A positive outlook can make all the difference.'
