It was a match, but the 21-year-old Alysha McNair from Canada managed to drop 82 pounds, after that her guard was smoked up at 172 pounds.
She had for several years lived entirely of junk food. It meant that she often visited up to five different places before she was satisfied with a meal.
The she says in an interview with the Daily Mail and on her Instagram, where she has documented her journey.
The daily intake of calories for women is 2000, Alysha says she used to eat twice of it.
Her overeating resulted in the fact that she had to use the size how many polo shirts, and she was teased at school with his weight.
but It was not the young woman to change his habits, after she had a scary experience.
- I was addicted to food and often I would visit five different fast food restaurants, before I had eaten a full meal. As a teen I was desperate to change my habits, because I was teased so much, but I just couldn't stick to a diet. But after I nearly suffocated in a soft drink as a 17-year-old, and I had a hard time to get the weather, I found out that I had to change or die, she says.

I want to cry right now, I never thought in a million years that my body could look the way it does right now and I know I still have a box of 80 pounds left to lose. I can't believe I can see my body line through all the fat and extra skin now. By next summer it will be skin surgery time and officially I have 77lbs of muscle I went up from my 72lbs of muscle 1.5 years ago. I'm so grateful for my life, and thankful for all you! You have no idea how much easier it makes this process with support. Going most of my life with only the support from my mom was hard. None of my friends thought I could actually lose the weight, and their moms were horrible about me, behind my back. Keep going you guys !!! You got this I promise and once you get their it feels like you're on top of your world. That nothing could tear you down. It's such a beautiful thing. I still remember walking into a mirror and being mind blown by how big I really was but also would just never see it and assumed I looked smaller until I would become depressed and sad about my size then I would dwell. Thank you so much to @ufc_gym_kelowna and @emre_0zgur to let me to allow me to help others get their fitness journey started. All I want to do is help, and motivate people to lead healthier lives. It feels so amazing knowing I'm on the right path. I'm so excited for next year and to see what happens next. Have a WONDERFUL day everyone remember that yes times get hard, but you don't just stay down. You rise up, and you reach for the stars you got this boo
I weighed 172 pounds, since I weighed the most, and I was so ashamed of my body, that I rarely went outside. I used often up to four hours to put my makeup to get better with myself, but nothing worked, she says.
The young woman explains that she ate her feelings and the first, when she found out that her life could be in danger, she decided to change her diet.
- I began to move me more and plan my meals instead of only eating junk food. My mother was really worried that I would die from my obesity.
It was therefore a happy Alysha, who stood in the test room after his weight loss. Finally, she could fit a dress in normal size.
She has now stopped eating junk food, and she hopes that her instagramprofil will inspire others to take up the fight with the weight.

Another face to face transformation for you guys in honour of face to face Friday's ! I still can't get over that these photos were 4 years taken apart In the always wanted to look the way I do today but didn't know if it was fully possible I'm so grateful for my life and everything in it ! Always remember watching everyone be able to work out or do the makeup In can now. Trust me it is possible if you hang in there and stick it through ! I know the days are hard, I know they get stressful and uncomfortable but that's a good thing that means things are changing and you are growing. Self awareness is key and when you can recognize that things aren't as bad or big of a deal as they seem it's very helpful. Just hang in there, and remember to take each moment as it is. It's going to be okay, just breathe.
