24-Year-Old Weighed 660 Pounds; Now Look at Her Incredible Transformation After Losing Over 400 Pounds
A TLC reality show called My 600 Pound Life gives you an unfiltered slice of life of obese people and their everyday problems. Amber Rachdi, a subject of the kick-off show for season 3, failed in the show and after the show, she lost 400 pounds.
Her episode aired in 2015 where she had reached 657 pounds and was miserable as she couldn’t fit herself in a car or even walk. On the show, she doubted her ability to take action but that changed once she got off the show.
She couldn’t reveal her current actual weight to the public due to contracts with TLC but she did mention on her Facebook page that she was happy to reach 250 and even less.
She had to lose weight to qualify for a gastric bypass surgery by working physically and changing her eating habits. This helped her immensely. She openly answered questions about how it isn’t the cure by the perfect help needed for weight loss.
She said, “I think it’s [gastric bypass surgery] a great tool for the temporary impact it has on the leptin cycle, stomach capacity, and insulin secretion processes of the body. I think mostly what it does is buy an overweight person time to learn new habits, get into therapy, and learn to make better choices on their own. Tons of folks need revision if they don’t focus their energy on learning new skills while the surgery is super restrictive.”
