How to lose weight fast according to US woman who shed 57kg with keto diet – 7NEWS.com.au

A mum who was fat shamed in a wedding dress shop has revealed how she dropped 57kg fast.

Ali Stutz Buch, 29, says a sales assistant told her this wont fit you before having the dress snatched out her hand and being redirected to the plus size section.

After leaving the shop feeling distraught, the hairstylist from Milwaukee, Winconsin, US, became determined to lose weight and 40kg before her big day.

Ali continued to lose more weight totalling 57kg and she was so proud of her achievement that she splashed out US$16,000 (A$20,000) on cosmetic surgery for her new figure.

The mum-of-two said: I went dress shopping and I was already self-conscious but was looking forward to a nice day.

When we arrived at the shop, my eyes fell on one dress and I excitedly picked it up.

The sales assistant took it off me and abruptly said this wont fit you, you need the plus size dresses in that corner.

Of course I was aware of my size but when a stranger says something so blunt to your face it hurts. It really shattered my confidence and her comments stuck with me. It made me so sad.

I realised I needed to change. I have tough skin but this dress was for my special day and I didnt want people to be looking at me and only noticing my weight.

At her heaviest, Ali weighed 120kg when she was 23 and a single mum of one.

My brain doesnt let me have just a small bite of something. I would eat the whole cake.

Ali admits to always being overweight, even in school and when she had her daughter, now six, she struggled more.

She met her now-husband, Jacob, in 2015 when she was at her heaviest. But after getting engaged a year later, Ali decided enough was enough.

She said: I saw a Keto diet plan on Instagram but didnt really know what it was. I saw how good everyone looked and something just clicked and I knew was ready to start. I had tried and failed so many diet plans in the past.

Ali cut out sugar and carbs and wrote down everything she ate.

She said: I was a binge eater. People judged me for eating 6,000 calories a day but they dont realise how quickly calories add up unless you write down every snack. If you dont track what you are putting in your body it is so easy to overdo it.

For me my brain doesnt let me have just a small bite of something. I would eat the whole cake, then feel guilty and then eat another. It was a cycle. I needed a plan where I cut it out completely.

I had ordered a size 22 dress but now I was a size 10.

Ali lost 38kg ahead of her wedding and her seamstress was unable to make the drastic changes to her dress.

I had ordered a size 22 dress but now I was a size 10, she said.

I tried to have it altered, taking a whopping 16 inches out of the waist but it just didnt work.

So I went back to a shop and choose something I didnt dare to look at before. My dress was tightly fitted and I felt amazing. It was the most beautiful dress.

I had so much confidence on the day. For the first time I wanted people to look at me. Looking back at pictures I am so proud of how far Ive come and Im so happy I bought that new wedding dress to show off my new body.

Alis transformation didnt stop once she was married in 2017 and she is now 22kg smaller than her wedding day. She was halved her former weight and now weighs 60kg and has maintained her weight during lockdown.

Ali added: I am where I want to be.

My mental transformation is what I am most proud of, how I feel about myself now is what counts. Its mind-blowing to me what I have achieved.

I hated having photos taken, I was so critical of my body.

My life changed when I had my kids and I was desperate to be healthy for them. I was very close to my gran who was extremely overweight and she died aged 68 because of complications with her weight.

She never saw me graduate or got to meet my kids because she died due to something avoidable and I could see I was on that same path. I want to see my kids grow up, I love to play with them on the beach and race around after them.

After maintaining her weight for a year, Ali booked for tummy tuck surgery and breast augmentation.

She added: I had so much excess skin that the surgery was necessary but I decided on a boob job because I decided I deserved a confidence boost.
