You must not recognize this woman Amber Rachdi who lost more
than 250lbs and completely changed her life by transforming
into a babe. She initially weighed more than 600 pounds.
If you watch the show ‘My 600 Pound Life’, you’ll definitely
remember Amber Rachdi story. And probably the first thing
you’ll remember is how utterly heartbreaking it was. At just 23
she weighed 657 pounds and it made her feel like “a nasty,
In one of the episodes of her show, she had an eating disorder
that made it extremely difficult for her to stop eating, and
serious anxiety was the cause of that disorder. She said that
she was feeling disgusted by the amount of food she used to eat
but she wasn’t able to stop herself from doing that.
She was just five-year-old and weighed approximately 160 pounds
and since then the weight kept on piling up. For some unknown
reason, most of the fat and weight seemed to pile up on her
One of her biggest issues was that her legs were too heavy to
walk due to the weight. So for more than a few minutes at a

this person. I don’t like being this size.”
But we have to appreciate Amber’s efforts. Even though she
didn’t have a support system or someone that would encourage
her she still lost weight and managed to lose 20
pounds. That was the requirement if she wanted to undergo
weight loss surgery.
After her surgery went successfully she completely turned into
a babe. She looks happy and healthy, and like she’s in a
completely different place than she was during her My 600 Pound
Life episode. Probably a much different and happier place.
Since then she managed to lose 400 pounds and developed an
amazing sense of fashion.
Amber Rachdi is working with a therapist to help her deal with
the anxiety issues that caused her to gain so much weight in
the first place.
She’s also active on social media, and she seems ready and
willing to help out other people with weight loss or confidence
or basically any old thing. Amber has learned to drive now and
goes out for shopping often.
But Amber still intends to shed another 9 stone and admits she
has a long way to go. She said “I have hope. Now the world
is open to me. I’m no longer Amber of one room, one
