These girls are not celebrities at all, they did not have the opportunity to undergo an expensive operation or hire a fashionable nutritionist. But there was a very strong desire to lose weight and become beautiful - in spite of those who did not believe in them.
Excess weight is a real "plague" of the XXI century. But these women coped with the "disease", won over excess weight, proving to others that everything is possible. There would be a desire.
Plus-size model Rosie Mercado always had "curvaceous" forms and was ashamed of her excess weight, but could not find the strength to go on a diet. In 2011, Rosie's life turned upside down: her child was diagnosed with central paralysis, and her husband left the family. The girl began to seize stress with fast food, and very quickly her weight reached the mark of … 185 kg. Life went downhill: modeling agencies stopped signing contracts with Rosie, caring for children turned into hard work, and ridicule and injustice from others brought to hysteria. The last straw was an accident at the airport: an airline employee forced her to pay for an extra seat on the plane, because she allegedly would not fit into one seat. Rosie could not come to terms with this humiliation and decided to start losing weight. Rosie's diet stretched over five years, during which she lost about 108 kilograms. “I started doing fitness, jogging and walking. This is how I lost my first 50 kilograms. I also lost the same amount after gastric cutting surgery, as well as with the help of a low-carb diet. I go in for sports six times a week, every day I take 15 thousand steps,”said Rosie. Today, the girl is again in demand as a model, but she experiences the greatest happiness from the fact that she has again become a full-fledged mother to her kids.
For our compatriot Zhenya Mother, the fight against excess weight is the same eternal battle. When she was only 8 years old, Zhenya had a hormonal failure, which resulted in extra pounds. Over the years, the situation only worsened: in the second grade, Zhenya weighed 70 kg, at the time of entering the technical school - 90, and in her student years - already 127. The extra pounds brought with them health problems - the girl began to suffer from back pain and shortness of breath. But most of all, Zhenya suffered from her own complexes and the "sidelong glances" of her peers. The girl repeatedly went on diets, but all the time she broke down, and the kilograms lost with such difficulty returned. The salvation was YouTube. The girl watched hundreds of videos about how others were able to get in shape, and thought: "Why am I worse?" From that day on, Zhenya switched to proper nutrition and began to play sports. Fatty, salty and fried - prohibited! Twice a week - fasting day on fruits. From "joys" - sushi on holidays. To make the process go faster, Zhenya started to run - for a start, 10 minutes a day. And the "program" worked: in a year the girl got rid of 60 kilograms!
Like all romantic girls, Englishwoman Jennifer Ginley dreamed of a beautiful wedding, a luxurious dress and a magical journey to exotic islands. But this ideal picture did not fit the girl's excess weight, which by this day had reached 120 kg. Therefore, Jennifer strictly forbade her young man (with whom the affair lasted more than 10 years) from proposing to her until she lost weight. The bride must be slim, the girl decided and pulled herself together! She gave up chips, fast food, her favorite Chinese food and other delicacies that have ruined her figure over the years. The girl got rid of 60 kg, received the title "Miss Hudyshka 2017" and the coveted wedding ring.“Before I lost weight, I felt more or less confident in my body, but I have a feeling that I actually spent many years on an artificial smile, behind which I hid my dissatisfaction with myself,” the girl shared with subscribers.
American Alvin Reign has never controlled her weight. Fast food, sweets, constant snacks were a normal diet for her. The scales showed more than 130 kg, and the number of calories reached 5000 per day, but this did not bother the girl. Alvin was so fat that she wore exclusively men's clothes, women simply did not fit on her. The boyfriend (fortunately, the former) forced the girl to take the path of "healing": the young man called his beloved … "piece of garbage"! Terribly disappointing, but it worked: Alvin ended her overeating, went on a low-carb diet and started active sports. Adhering to her plan, Alvin lost 60 kilograms at once! Today the girl became the owner of an ideal body and … a beloved husband! The beauty recalls her ex-boyfriend with reluctance: “I remember how he told me that if I leave him, no one else wants me. He called me worthless, scary and was sure that I could not lose even a kilogram, even if I really wanted to. " The "hero" himself greatly regrets his words and even tried to return his beloved, because today she looks no worse than Hollywood stars.
Young teacher Laura Michetić was obese and weighed about 140 kg. The reason for such an impressive weight was the bouts of bulimia, which Laura could not cope with. According to the girl herself, she often secretly made her way to the refrigerator and devoured sweets in huge portions while no one sees. The turning point in the desire to change myself was the painful separation from her boyfriend after four years of relationship. But the main reason was the desire to be an example for the students, who, as it seemed to Laura, did not take the "fat woman" seriously. The teacher switched to proper nutrition, began to actively engage in athletics and after a year lost almost half of her weight. Today, more than 100 thousand people follow Laura's Instagram, and the girl happily notes: “Now my main goal is just to be happy and healthy. I love the gym and go to strength training six times a week, but now it's my lifestyle, not a desire to lose weight."
