A 19-year-old girl, Crystal Adame, once way 17 stone, a situation that has caused her to be bullied by her schoolmates.
Crystal has now not only lost seven-and-a-half stone, she has become an Instagram star due to her fantastic she looks now.
The cruel bullies in her school once compared her to Little Mermaid villain, Ursula the Sea Witch because of her size.
Crystal said she felt “disgusted” when she looked at herself.
She said she started to gain weight when she hit puberty and soon, it got out of control.
To lose the weight, the brunette beauty had to change her lifestyle. She stopped eating junk foods and carbs.
She also had more protein and fat. In two months, she started to see results, having lost 40 pounds (nearly 3 stone).
Now Crystal weighs 9.6st and has over 72,000 followers on Instagram – who follow her for health tips.
She said, “When I went through puberty is when I gained the most weight. It was an emotional eating habit just because I wanted to be accepted and I turned to food when I felt like I wasn’t. I also overate because I felt like I could never change so it didn’t matter how big I got.”
On how she feels now that she has lost the weight, Crystal explained, “I’m a whole different person. I feel more confident in myself. I don’t feel tired or sluggish anymore. Everyday I have so much energy. I can do things I couldn’t do before like run jump play a sport.
“I don’t have to worry about not being able to do things like ride a roller coaster and not have the belt buckle. I cannot believe I came this far. It went by so fast that if I think about doing it again I don’t think I could. I don’t recognise myself.”
What an amazing transformation. Her hard work definitely paid off.
