Amber Rachdi is a young woman of 24 whose health was hanging on a string due to her chronic food-related illness.
The young lady who lives in Oregon, United States, reached the point of eating huge plates of food more than 5 times per day until her weight reached 661 lbs.
Amber reached the extreme of needing help from relatives to do simple tasks like taking a bath, cooking or even getting up from bed.
At the beginning of her day, her only activity
used to be going to the supermarket, but later she stopped being able to do even that.
She had no alternative but to quit school and to avoid every activity that involved physical effort. Then she decided to stay at home and she thought that she was never going to get out of there again.
A few years later, her boyfriend Rowdy gave Amber a taste for life and hope for a better existence when he offered to help her to get professional help. Doctors recommended surgery to reduce her stomach size, but before the procedure she had to lose some weight.
That is how she returned to a normal and healthy life.
At first, it was difficult for her since her weight loss was slow: she’s lost only 15 lbs. in first three months; but, a few weeks later, she fulfilled the goal of losing the necessary weight for the surgery.
One year later Amber had lost 375 lbs.
The young lady told that, without any doubt, the weight-loss surgery helped her, however a strong willpower, a healthy diet and a fitness routine were required to return to a normal life.
