Weight loss stories are usually encouraging, but this one, about an abused 16-year-old girl determined to change her unhealthy lifestyle, is unique.
Josephine Desgrand is from Queensland, Australia. Since her childhood, she has been bullied and taunted because of her weight. Josephine weighed over 280 pounds. When she saw the numbers on her scale, she knew she had to act quickly before it was too late. As an added motivation, she told herself that she would match her dream prom dress.
Josephine began her weight loss process at the age of 16 after seeing how her weight was affecting her physically and mentally.
Josephine has tried several diets and programs in the past, but she has not been able to follow such diets long-term and has not seen great success. Even though it was still two years away, she wanted to look stunning in a prom dress, so prom night was a good excuse to make a change.
Two years later, her weight had dropped by as much as 138 kilos.
Josephine’s transformation is amazing and can motivate anyone who faces the same problem.
