A woman who used to store food until she couldn't breathe has completely transformed her body after losing nearly 200 pounds in just one year.
Adrianna Styer, a 23-year-old bank director from Orlando, Florida, overhauled her unhealthy diet in 2017 after stepping on a scale during a physical exam and learning that she weighed 363 pounds.
& # 39; I was absolutely shocked and disgusted with myself. I couldn't believe it, & she said. & # 39; I weighed the same as two grown men and wore old grandma-style clothing there because nothing else would suit me. & # 39;

Make a change: she changed her unhealthy diet in 2017 after stepping on a scale during a physical exam and learning that she weighed 363 pounds
Adrianna said she struggled with obesity all her life and admitted that she weighed no less than 100 pounds when she was only five years old.
& # 39; I was completely addicted to food and it was always in mind. I would always crave my next meal, & she recalled.
Obesity is struggling: Arianna said she weighed no less than 100 pounds when she was only five years old
Although her father would try to limit what she ate, her mother was milder and let them eat junk food.
& # 39; I remember waiting for my father to leave the house to eat cookies, & # 39; she said. & # 39; Every night when we were eating, I finished my meal for someone else and sat there hoping and praying that someone couldn't eat theirs, so I could finish it for them. & # 39 ;
Arianna said she was plagued mercilessly at school, where her colleague & # 39; s would mock her by calling her names like & # 39; chubby & # 39 ;, & # 39; fat a ** & # 39 ;, & # 39; lard & # 39; and & # 39; pig & # 39 ;. Some students sniff her.
& # 39; To get through those days, I was deliberately the funny one, & # 39; she explained.
Her weight continued to get out of hand after she left the house and her parents no longer supervised what she ate.
& # 39; I was finally able to follow a strict meal plan that consisted of eating anything and everything I ever wanted. I would say I ate about 4,000 to 5,000 calories a day, & she admitted.
No more mess: Adrianna began her incredible transformation by scraping sugary drinks and limiting what she ate
Focused: she started & # 39; extremely healthy & # 39; and exchanged her old fast-food staples for eggs, lean turkey bacon and vegetables to fill her
Challenge: Adrianna admitted that she ate about 4,000 to 5,000 calories a day
& # 39; I ate at every turn, constantly, I ate even until I could no longer breathe. I even ate food that I didn't like. You name it, I ate it. & # 39;
Arianna said she started her mornings with two sandwiches and two hash browns from McDonald's. For lunch she would get an extra large meal from another fast food restaurant.
She always chose the & # 39; largest options on the menu & # 39; for dinner, which was usually a meal from a steakhouse or Mexican food with fries and salsa.
& # 39; Although I was a bit active at school, playing basketball, and playing the fanfare, there was no exercise when I left school. & # 39;
Only when she had to undergo a physical examination for her health insurance did she realize that she had to make major changes to her life.
Adrianna said she burst into tears & # 39; when she stepped on the scales that day and heard she weighed more than 360 pounds.
& # 39; I started cutting sugar-containing beverages and limiting what I ate & # 39 ;, she explained. & # 39; I lost 50 pounds in the first month. & # 39;

Happy: the bank manager said her friend James was only supportive
She then started & # 39; extremely healthy & # 39; and exchanged her old fast-food staples for eggs, lean turkey bacon and vegetables to fill her.
& # 39; I didn't really go to the gym in those first six months and I really believe that 90 percent of your success starts in the kitchen, & # 39; said Adrianna, who now eats around 1200 calories a day.
To stimulate her weight loss, she started lifting weights four times and doing cardio. She was wearing size 8 in April 2018 after losing more than half her body weight and falling to 170 pounds.
Although most people gave incredible support to her amazing progress, she admitted that there were people who refused to accept that she was losing weight just by looking at her diet.
& # 39; It was a tough journey. A friend accused me of rinsing because I lost so much weight, & she said, remembering how she tried to explain to her that she lost weight to a healthy weight.
& # 39; When I was the biggest, I started dating this man. He was worried about my weight loss and male attention, & she said.
& # 39; He always made me small and told me that I was thin and weak to try and stop my progress. I think I kept seeing him because I had never really had love. & # 39;
Unbelievable: Adrianna wore size 8 in April 2018 after she had lost more than half her body weight and dropped to 170 pounds
Bad friend: Adrianna admitted that she had lost weight so quickly that a friend accused her of purifying her meals, but she said that most people have been supportive
Adrianna now has a much healthier relationship with her boyfriend James, who has been nothing but supporting her weight loss journey.
& # 39; Fortunately, most people applaud me and praise my hard work, & # 39; she said. & # 39; Many people don't even recognize me anymore. People also come to me for advice and tips on how to lose weight. & # 39;
Wise words: Adrianna advises everyone who wants to lose weight to start small and explains that these & # 39; changes add up to big results & # 39;
She said she has lost so much weight that she fits into normal clothing, sits in a chair without worrying about it breaking, and going on amusement park rides.
& # 39; I am healthy, my blood pressure drops, I can walk up, & # 39; she said. & # 39; Nothing stops me anymore. I am finally alive and have so much energy. & # 39;
Adrianna advises everyone who wants to lose weight to start small and explains that & # 39; those small changes add up to big results & # 39 ;.
& # 39; Start deleting something that you know is bad for you. Then make another change, & she said.
& # 39; You cannot cut a cold turkey, or it will never work. Remember that this is a journey and not a race. If those scales don't move as fast as you want, be patient.
& # 39; Make sure you take a lot of progress photos along the way so that you can see your results. Make friends with like-minded people, because support is also important.
& # 39; Do this primarily for yourself. Don't lose weight for someone else. You can feel this and by the way, feel healthy feels so great. & # 39;
