It all started at a theme park mascot audition. Anne was auditioning for The Little Mermaid role. It was her childhood dream to be Princess Ariel.
At the audition, Anne soon realized that she was different from the rest. Still, she was determined to give it a shot.
In the dressing room, Anne found her mermaid costume to be a bit too small. She barely fit into it.
When Anne stepped out of the dressing room, the rest of the auditionees could barely contain their laughter. Anne’s costume had revealed her huge tummy.
The worst part was that the judges laughed her off and told her she was just too wide to be Ariel. They told her she could be Winnie the Pooh instead.
Anne fled the audition in tears.
“I’ve never felt so embarrassed in my life.”
“I remember the time when I used to be slim.”
“I lost my dad to a car accident when I was a kid. He was my everything.”
“I couldn’t cope with the grief, so I developed an emotional connection to food.”
“But I realized I had to do something.” - Anne
“You’re lucky we got to you in time.”
“Heatstroke can be fatal.”
“The next time, it could be a heart attack.”
“You need to think about the risks of being overweight.”
Anne shared her struggle to trim down with her doctor. That’s when he introduced Anne to Dr. Kando.
Dr. Kando was a renowned endocrinologist from Japan specializing in obesity treatments. He took out a box, handed it to Anne, and said:
Back at work, her colleagues looked at her in surprise. One day, the woman playing Little Mermaid called in sick and they needed a replacement.
This time, Anne volunteered herself with confidence. She slipped into Little Mermaid’s costume effortlessly.
Recalling her humiliating audition one year ago, she couldn’t help but shed tears of happiness.
Anne was a star that day! She even got offered a permanent role as Little Mermaid.
“Me and my dad, we shared this Disney dream together.”
“Even though he is no longer with me, I know he would want me to have a long and happy life.” - Anne
