If you’ve ever struggled with your weight, you know just how easy it can be to put on the pounds, and how difficult it can be to drop them. While some people manage to get their weight under control through diet and exercise, others continue to struggle.
For lots of people, maintaining a healthy weight is a lifelong struggle that seems like it will never end. That was definitely the case for an Oregon woman named Amber Rachdi whose weight reached more than 650 pounds.
Amber’s body had become so heavy that she had a difficult time performing simple daily tasks like walking and using the bathroom. After years of being unable to lose the weight, Amber decided to undergo gastric bypass surgery.
Amber’s weight loss journey was chronicled on the TLC series, My 600 Pound Life, and her transformation was almost unbelievable.
