This 28-year-old woman was a victim of “emotional eating”—her boyfriend was unsupportive of her quest to lose weight. She fought against all the odds and is now thriving as a fitness coach.

In 2014, Christine Carter was weighing an incredible 275 pounds (approx. 125 kg). She also suffered from health issues as a result of excess weight.

Christine had a boyfriend who did not support her fitness goals.

“He was very controlling, told me what to wear, wanted me to be fat so that I wouldn’t leave him and didn’t like me having me own friends. Being overweight I didn’t feel I deserved anything better—I went from a place of being ‘fat and happy’ to just ‘fat,’” she said.

Christine gorged on sugary foods and was also addicted to smoking and alcohol. All these factors contributed to keeping her fat.

And it almost seemed as though she was doomed to spend the rest of her life being overweight. But in 2014, she decided that enough was enough. She underwent a gastric band surgery in August that year, which helped her shed off almost 50 pounds (approx. 23 kg). But she soon began to gain back her weight. And that is when Christine got in touch with a personal trainer.

 She signed up at the Hero training center and began to live on a nutritious, healthy diet, and gave up her sugar-heavy, high-calorie meals.

She also started working out, slowly at the start. Despite the grueling exercises, she stuck with the advice of her trainer. By 2015, she had lost an extra 100 pounds (approx. 45 kg).

 Christine’s joy knew no bounds. She had successfully reduced her weight from 275 pounds (approx. 125 kg) to less than 125 pounds (approx. 57 kg) through her determination within a period of 16 months. She was slim and fit, free from the excess fat that had made her life a living hell.

“Weight loss has changed everything about my life. I am not the same girl I once was. It ended my relationship—my ex became very insecure and jealous and I gained the confidence to see that I was not in a healthy relationship and needed to get out,” she said.

 Christine’s transformation is indeed a stunning one and something that is sure to serve as an inspiration for all those who are planning to lose weight and become fit. She has 219,000 followers on Instagram and has taken up modeling and coaching.

She is reported to have said, by POPSUGAR: “I have learned to enjoy NEW things about food. I’ve learned to love cooking and am finding new ways every day to make low sugar/carb meals that taste great but don’t keep me from my goals. I’ve learned to stop EATING my feelings and find new outlets for them.”
