Woman sells house to fund cosmetic surgery

London, Sep 13 (IANS): A British woman, desperate to look good before her wedding, sold her house to pay $22,000 for cosmetic surgery.

Tsia Pullen, 34, was considered morbidly obese and struggled with obesity since childhood, the Daily Mail reported Friday.

Pullen said she "couldn't bear to look in the mirror" and tried everything she could to shed weight.

But after many failed efforts, Pullen, a mother-of-one took the bizarre step to sell her 80,000 pounds ($126,496) three-bedroom Bolton home to fund cosmetic surgery in Belgium.

"People thought I was insane, but I knew it was the right thing to do," the newspaper quoted Tsia as saying.

"It was the first house I'd ever bought. It had a massive garden and I was proud of it. But, more than anything, I wanted to look amazing on my wedding day.

"I hated myself so much. I used to end up in tears when I went shopping - nothing fitted. It wasn't only the embarrassment either. Walking around the shops would leave me breathless and in agony as I was so big," she added.

But when her fiance, Alastair, proposed, Tsia was determined to take urgent action.

"I didn’t want Alastair to marry me while I looked like that. I wanted to be a beautiful bride.

"He was supportive of my decision, but he said he had always loved how I looked. But I didn’t love myself, so I went for it," she said.
