My twin sister and I had been victims of the disease of obesity since we were teenagers. We tried every diet and read every book written on diets, but our weight went up and up. In the autumn of 2002, an Austrian doctor working in Switzerland told us about the "Dr. Bahadori´s Leanness Program". We knew it was the last chance to save our lives. Then, suddenly, my sister died of pulmonary embolism and heart failure, which was – without doubt – related to our weight problem.

My world collapsed. But gradually I began to feel a strength inside that was more powerful than the sadness and despair caused by the loss of my sister. I started to believe that I could successfully fight this disease and save my life. So I made my way to Graz to begin the program. Today I am seventy kilos lighter, have lost over eighty litres of body fat and my waist-line has decreased by a whooping eighty centimetres!

I am now a completely new person!

My health problems have all but disappeared, and my old life seems like something out of a novel.
If it were not for the fact that I miss my sister so much, it would seem like a work of fiction. In defeating this malicious disease, I wanted to build a monument to my sister. I have told people my story and encouraged them to fight and to get their destinies back into their own hands, too.

Now I am talking to you:

Believe me, no one knows the horror of a life of obesity more than I. I know what it‘s like to live in a world where nobody understands you. Still, you must battle on, if you fall you must get up and start again. Don‘t wait until tomorrow:


That´s me on the right after the Dr. Bahadori´s Leanness Program!

Yours sincerely,
Inge Schmideler

My life has been changed completely!
