It wasn't long ago that Brit-born Amber Rose felt the pressure to buy two plane tickets as she couldn't fit into the one seat.
Standing at 159 kilos, the 24-year-old "needed a seat-belt extender for flights", ate takeaway three times a week and was constantly asked if "she was pregnant". It was only after a friend posted a pic of Amber at a buffet table, that she decided to take matters into her own hands.
“I was actually in denial about how big I was. I would snack on sharing packs of Maltesers all day and have at least three takeaways a week,” she told Daily Mail. “Then one day, a friend uploaded a photo of me at a buffet table, I was horrified, I couldn’t believe it was me in the picture. I knew I was big but this woman looked huge.
Now, Amber's lost a whopping 78 kilos and dropped nine dress sizes with the help of Weight Watchers and a strict exercise and diet regime - and the transformation is UNBELIEVABLE.
“I lost a stone quite quickly but was humiliated again when a stranger came up to me on a night out and asked how many months pregnant I was.
“Ever since then I haven’t looked back, I switched to low calorie healthy meals and began to do light exercise. Now I’m a gym junkie and absolutely love working out, I feel more confident than ever and cant wait to get my bikini out this summer.”
Amber admitted, that it wasn't as easy as it sounds. “It’s not an easy journey, when you’ve had an unhealthy diet for so long it becomes the norm and it’s hard to get out of such bad habits.
“When I weighed 25 stone I never thought I could lose 13 stone, but I’m so proud of myself now. I can’t wait to get on a plane again this summer and feel no shame when stepping out in my bikini. I’m happier than I’ve ever been!"
