Bride loses 50 kg in 15 months after being embarrassed by engagement photos

A determined young woman from Amarillo, Texas fought temptation to prepare for her wedding to her high school sweetheart.

According to Life Buzz, Haley Smith, 24, shed 110 pounds (around 50 kg) in 15 months for her special day.

She and her betrothed, Matt Smith, were engaged in July 2015 but she did not share the news with her friends via social media like most couples  because she was shocked by how much she had "let [herself] go".

Her motivation to lose weight was beyond societal pressures.

She also wanted to do it so that she could play sports with friends and go on family vacations.

Not only did she manage to achieve her goal but she is not motivating thousands of women everywhere to make healthy changes to their lifestyle through her Instagram account where she has over 38,000 followers.
