A 21-year-old woman transformed her life when she went from being morbidly obese to working as a sportswear model.
Mathilde Broberg from Denmark once weighed in at 121kg, but using the ‘teaspoon diet’ and cutting out junk food, she dropped an incredible 54kg bringing her to 67kg.
She attributes her weight loss success to a technique where she tricked her body into feeling full more quickly by eating only with a teaspoon and ensuring her portions were no bigger than her hand.
I got my life back ??? The only thing that can stop your weightloss or fight towards your goal is yourself and your mindset! You really gotta stop saying you can't or it's not possible – because it IS possible! I've been obese my entire life, so I didn't even know how it feels to be thin/normal size! ? But I can tell you guys… It's amazing ?? I loooove my life after I've lost weight and after a loooong time finally feeling good in my own skin ❤️ My weightloss has been a long and super hard adventure, and I'm far from done ??✨ This is a lifestyle, not a diet!! You can't just go back to your unhealthy and old eating/living habits after you've lost weight! And you'll never be able to do that again ☝?️ But what motivated me? Well… Honestly all I wanted was a boyfriend ? I've always been a tomboy and I was "one of the dudes" when I was fat… But I just want some love ? And through my life I've been told that I had such a pretty face, so I just wanted a body that matches my face ?? And ofc I wanted to look good naked hahaha, this is really honest ? And please keep in mind that I was 16 when I started loosing weight – i just wanna be young, free and happy and enjoy my youth ? #healthychoices#healthyliving#sundlivsstil#træning#transformation#transformationtuesday#vægttab2016#vægttab#weightloss#weightlossstory#weightlosssucces#goals#bodygoals#bulk#lean#abs#gymgirl#gymmotivation#fitfam#fitness#fitnessworlddk#workoutmotivation#hardworkpaysoff#girls#life#inspiring#inspiration
Mathilde, who admitted to being an overeater until the age of 16, said:
Before, I would buy all the things you dream of like chips, chocolate, cake, noodles and lots of junk food between meals.
After seeing a picture from our school production, I realised how big I was and knew there was no way I could go to college looking how I did, I knew it would be a living nightmare.
Face 2 face ?? Psssst i'm 5'9/176cm _ 2011 vs 2016. _ Yes. It is a long and tough journey, but it's all worth it. Trust me, I've had times where I just wanted to quit it and I said to myself "It doesn't matter anyways.. I'll never lose weight and be a size 'normal'." _ I'm soooo happy for not letting that voice control me this time ?? Patience and self discipline is the ? to a successful weight loss! _ Don't give up and don't look back. Take one day at a time and set small goals for yourself. Trust me, you WILL and CAN reach your goal. Just gotta keep fighting ?? Start today and don't wait until tomorrow. _ #weightlossjourney#weightlossgoals#vægttab
She was at one point consuming 3,500 calories per day and recalled the upsetting moment she was kicked off a roller coaster for being too heavy.
After losing all the weight, she was left with a lot of extra skin, which the Danish government kindly paid $10,000 for her to have removed in a tummy tuck.
Never quit or give up! 2011 vs 2016 – Lost 140 lbs/63kilo on my own READ BELOW _ You have to make small goals for yourself. Take one day at a time, don't give up and you'll see the results after a short time as long as you remember NOT to give up or "fall in" ?? If you truly want to lose weight you'll be able to stay focused and determined ?? You just gotta stay strong and don't look back! _ Ask yourself: "What if I lost 1 lbs every 10th day or every week? Where will I be in one year if I start today?" _ By telling myself that I stayed motivated – So don't quit because "you think it doesn't matter anyways…" _ Stay focused and remember your goals – they're not that far away if only you keep pushing! _ How I started was basically just from one day to another – I had enough! So that must have been what kept me going. And trust me; I've failed MANY times before trying to lose weight, but in 2012 I simply had enough and I've never looked back! _ I went from 268lbs (120kg) or even more to 125lbs (57kg) – and now I'm around 149lbs (68-70kg) ❤️ I'm 5'9/176cm.

Before the surgery, I felt trapped inside a body that wasn’t really mine, now that my excess skin is gone I feel like I’ve transformed into the real me.
Now she lives the life of a sportswear and catalogue model, which has left a lot of the boys who used to turn her down with their tails between their legs.
Face 2 Face __ tag a friend __ I will never get used to the strange feeling I get when I see before and after pictures of myself! Don't waste your time on complaining about your condition – use that energy to push yourself towards your goal and NEVER look back Yes, it does take some time – Rome wasn't built in a day ? So start building your own empire (your body) and don't waste anymore time on complaining ?? ___________________________________________ Jeg vender mig nok aldrig rigtigt til den følelse jeg får når jeg ser gamle billeder af mig selv! _ Lad vær med at spild din tid på, at brokke dig over din nuværende situation og brug i stedet energien på, at rykke dig selv hen imod dit mål og ALDRIG se dig tilbage _ Ja, det vil tage tid – men Rom blev jo ikke bygget på én dag ? Ik' spild mere tid på brok og kom i stedet igang (jo før desto bedre) ________________________ #beforeandafter#weightlossprogress#facetoface
Out of nowhere I’ve suddenly became interesting to the boys. I’ve turned down a lot of people who have asked me out because if they can’t handle me at my biggest they don’t deserve me now.
Eating with a teaspoon sounds tedious but it seems like an incredibly effective diet, fair play to Mathilde for her incredible transformation!
