Jasmine Parent, 30, from Nova Scotia, ballooned up to 295 pounds after she started binge-eating after her father's death.

Meanwhile, her fiancé Jeremy Crawley, 27, tipped the scales at 333 pounds a year ago, but has since shredded nearly a third of his body weight, shrinking to 235 pounds.

After surgery to remove excess skin, Jasmine has now undergone a complete body transformation, lost an incredible 125 pounds and now weighs a healthy 170 pounds.

Jasmine said the couple wanted to be a better example for their two daughters.

& # 39; In the beginning I never thought we would lose so much.

& # 39; Our eating habits were terrible. We have not prepared any of our meals at home. We have spent a lot of money on junk food and take-out.

& # 39; It was possible to lose so much weight by completely changing the way we were eating. & # 39;

Jasmine added that the pair both & # 39; heavy & # 39; was when they met, via Instagram.

However, when Jasmine's father died in 2013, her eating habits got out of hand.

She said: & # 39; I started to arrive and eat emotionally.

& # 39; I wanted to be emotionally present and communicate with my girls and have the energy for them.

& # 39; But on some days my fear was almost paralyzing that I couldn't be the mother I wanted to be.

& # 39; I just really hated what I saw in the mirror. & # 39;

The turning point for Jasmine was when she had a photo taken with her best friends. She looked at the photo and only then did she realize how heavy she had become.

& # 39; When I saw it my mouth fell open. I couldn't believe I was standing next to my friends and I was so embarrassed.

& # 39; I thought: & # 39; I am not yet thirty years old and cannot physically climb my stairs without severe pain in my knees & # 39;. & # 39;

Jasmin's mother, Joan added, "She was getting bigger."

& # 39; I was worried about stress on her joints and heart problems. I did not like the way she seemed to feel about herself and her overall presence was not positive. As a mother that worried me a lot. & # 39;

When she saw the picture of herself, she also went home for Jeremy: & # 39; the sugar and sodium and all that stuff – I really couldn't stand it.

& # 39; I could not believe how big I had become.

& # 39; We finally found that drive to do something about it & # 39 ;, he said.

The couple started their amazing journey to lose weight by doing training videos in their living room and following a 21-day meal plan. They have significantly reduced their salt and sugar intake, which, according to Jeremy, has improved his energy level.

When asked how lifestyle change has improved his life, he said: & My attitude to everything did a complete 360. Just a better father, partner and just happier with myself. & # 39;

But the couple say that losing weight was not an easy achievement.

Jasmine said: & # 39; There were days when I felt I would definitely quit. There were days when I left as if it wasn't worth it, that I wasn't worth it.

& # 39; But I kept pushing. I wanted to be a good example for my daughters.

& # 39; It's just about setting priorities. Are we going to watch Netflix for 20 minutes tonight or are we going to spend 30 minutes in our living room with a quick workout? & # 39;

Jasmine documented her weight loss on social media, which became such a follower that it became her full-time job.

In the final step of her journey, she underwent a & # 39; life-changing & # 39; excess skin removal surgery on her stomach.

Loose skin is a common part of the weight loss experience, especially for people like Jasmine who have lost more than 100 pounds in a short time.

But despite how far she had come, she says that the excess skin eroded her confidence.

& # 39; I feel that I have worked very, very hard to get to this body and then I put on pants and I have this kind of budge where the skin is. & # 39;

The four-hour procedure involved removing part of the skin from the stomach and re-sewing the incision, making the overall appearance tighter and flatter.

The operation, commonly known as a & # 39; tummy tuck, & # 39 ;, can take months to fully recover.

She spoke ten weeks after her surgery and claimed to heal & # 39; very well & # 39 ;.

She said: It feels so good to get to a point where I just keep on weight.

& # 39; I am finally in a place where I love what I see when I look in the mirror.

& # 39; I can just relax a bit and enjoy the lifestyle that I have created for myself. I finally feel the limit of heaven at this point. & # 39;
