At her heaviest, she weighed 300 pounds (21.4 stone).

After devoting her life to “eating healthy, no more junk food [and eventually] jogging three miles a day”, she lost a whopping 130 pounds (8.5 stone). 

Now, she’s fundraising to raise money for surgery that would remove the excess skin she has to carry as a result of her weight loss.

I wake up in terrible pain every morning because of how the heavy amounts of skin sink into my abdomen, I have to suck in/flex my stomach when I walk to hold the skin in because if not it feels as if my skin is ripping away from my stomach, I get rashes often from the skin folding in problematic areas and many times a burning/tearing sensation around my breasts. 

Montgomery is also in the process of designing fitness programs and nutrition guides, as well as penning a memoir about her journey in an effort to help other people who want to “embark on a new way of life”.
