Stephanie was understandably traumatized over the loss. She barely went outside and “ate” away her negative feelings. In 2016, she already weighed 377 lb.

I became a hermit. I was bored and unhappy and didn’t care what I looked like any more. Life didn’t really feel worth living to me.

The girl’s mother began to worry that the extra weight could provoke serious health problems for her daughter, so she decided to play it wise. The woman enrolled in a community of slimming people, hoping that Stephanie would follow her example. And it worked pretty well!

Now Stephanie’s weight is 187 lb, which is half of she had weighed before! She can barely recognize herself when seesher reflection.

Now, when I look in the mirror, I can’t believe it’s me.
