How to lose weight fast: Obese woman loses 10st in 18 months … – Daily Star


When Amanda Roberts stepped on the scale in 2014 and saw 23st staring back at her, she knew she needed to make a change.

The mother of one then turned to gastric bypass surgery which helped her lose an incredible 10st in just 18 months.

She said: When Talia started walking, I could barely keep up with her. I had such intense back pains from my weight that I could barely carry her, and even just playing on the ground with her exhausted me. I knew that I'd have to get my health on track if I wanted to be the best Mum I could be for her.

Amazingly, these reality TV stars have lost more than 40st between them... all thanks to healthy eating and exercise

Jennifer Ellison from Brookside loses three stone in weight


The 23-year-old continued: For a long time, I thought I felt okay. I had tried so many ways to lose weight that never worked, so I had pretty much given up on trying and was ready to just live contently as a plus size person.

It wasn't until after I had my daughter that I realised how depressed I really was. I shut myself in the house all of the time, didn't want to go anywhere, didn't want to talk to anyone, mostly because I was ashamed of how much weight I had gained.

I was just tired and unhappy, and that's not how I wanted to be as a mom and person, especially since I was only 21 years old!

The surgery and ditching her unhealthy snack habit allowed the massive weight loss but it also left Amanda with 3st of excess skin.

The California woman had skin hanging from her stomach, legs and arms and the only way to get rid of the skin was through surgery.

Amanda fundraised the 7740 she needed for surgery in which doctors removed the excess skin and left Amanda with a flat stomach and weighing a svelte 12.8st.


Amanda stated: I went from eating junk food and living a very sedentary life, to now eating a high protein, low carb diet and working out 5-6 days a week.

The weight came off easy at first, but now that I am almost 3 years post op, maintaining the weight loss and losing more is getting more difficult. After about 18 months post op, the effects of the gastric bypass start to wear off and it's basically relying on your new healthy lifestyle to keep you going.

Losing the excess skin has resulted in Amanda being more confident than ever as she happily shows off her new body.

She added: Im more confident than ever! I know I've worked hard for my current body, and that makes me love it that much more!
