She Used To Eat 21 Burgers a Week, See Her Incredible Weight Loss Photos

Carrying too much weight is a serious problem in modern society. Some 39.8 percent of Americans alone are obese according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Yet fighting the flab is a struggle the world over. Given the frenetic pace of life and easy access to cheap calories, how do we keep from ballooning up?

For some of us, it takes a major intervention to make a life change. For others, though, all we need is small, striking reminder.

Twenty-one-year-old Alisha-Kate Armstrong fell into that second category. According to The Mirror, she’d always carried extra weight.

“I was always chunky growing up. I was bullied quite a lot through high school,” the Wigan, Greater Manchester, England, resident said.

But things got really bad after Armstrong gave birth to her first child. The stress of having new infant pushed her toward her favorite past time: food.

VT reported that she said, “The amount of food I was shoveling in my mouth was terrible. Looking back, I’m surprised I didn’t have a heart attack. It could have killed me.”

Armstrong wasn’t exactly exaggerating with that statement.

She nurtured a yen for Rustler hamburgers, a British microwaveable-sandwich brand typically found in gas stations. In fact, Armstrong liked them so much she ate 21 a week.

She also regularly consumed slices of white bread slathered in brown sauce, as well as full-size chocolate bars. Her dinner typically consisted of pizza and kebabs.

Metro stated that Armstrong realized she wasn’t giving her daughter, Tilly, the kind of care she needed. How did she know?

Well, she wasn’t going out of the house because she was embarrassed about her weight. Also, reality reached out and grabbed her one day when she tried chasing her young daughter and then had a hard time catching her breath afterward.

Armstrong decided to ditch the junk food, begin eating healthier, and start exercising. The results proved dramatic.

At her largest, she weighed roughly 240 pounds. Today, she tilts the scales at approximately 140.



Her “friends” who used to bully her have begun saying that she looks great. Some even questioned if her previous weight was part of some elaborate prank, asking her if she’d been wearing a fat suit.

“I feel so much better now,” she said. “I’m a completely different person.

“When people see me, they are so shocked. I’ve gone back to college now, and I’ve got so many more friends.

“My daughter is now going to nursery. I don’t feel restricted anymore.”
