 Someone seriously threw a burrito at me from the bleachers at a football game.. I constantly questioned why no one treated me for the sweet person that I was, so many people just saw the extra weight I carried. 

The final turning point in her life came in 2015, when she was caving with a few friends and the tide came in.

Everyone managed to get themselves out, but I was frantic, panicking because I didn't think in that moment that I would make it back home that day, I prayed for God's strength to move me because I knew no one, not even myself, could help lift me out of that water.

I got out. I don't know how, I can't remember much of that day, but by the grace of God, I am still here today to share the story.

After Feeling "Too Big" to Play With Her Daughter, Christine Lost 100 Pounds in 1 Year

  After Feeling Christine Carlos was at the beach in June 2012 when a sad realization hit her: at 225 pounds, she was out of breath and struggling to keep up while playing with her young daughter in the sand. That fateful day motivated Christine to shed a whopping 100 pounds over the course of the following year. It all began by making minor alterations to her diet and exercise routines, which blossomed into bigger goals down the line. "I started slow by changing some habits little by little," she explained, also noting that she read health magazines and took up doing plenty of research about weight loss.

She recalls being obese her entire life; during high school, she weighed 300 pounds . “I was constantly on the defense,” she told Cosmopolitan. However, doctors warned that her weight was making her susceptible to life - threatening medical conditions like a heart attack or stroke.

Slide 6/10 – The woman whose 65- pound weight loss totally changed her body . At her heaviest, Kaylee weighed in at 481 pounds — something that made her life incredibly difficult. "Day to day, life was a constant struggle," Kaylee says.

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”.
