Amber and Beau had gone through so much together. Thanks to their love, they managed to lose lots of weight. But they needed a little help when it came to getting the right post-weight loss look.
Back in high school, Amber and Beau were sweethearts.
Beau was in the year above Amber. Amber describes it as love at first sight!
In 2013, the couple decided to get married.
As many married couples have experienced, once Amber and Beau settled down together, they started to gain weight.
To be fair, Amber did become pregnant, so she had an excuse for her weight gain!
But even she admits that she took the whole, “eating for two,” thing a little too far!
After Amber had given birth, the couple kept on eating excessively. After all, when you form a habit, it’s hard to break the cycle!
But eventually, Amber realized that she had to do something. One morning, she weighed herself and was shocked to see that she was 363 pounds. Beau believes that his highest weight was 357 pounds.
And, of course, the weight gain had ramifications upon them. Their energy and libido levels shot right down.
After that, life got tough.
“In addition to gaining all of that weight, we fell into some financial struggles. So that actually caused us to fight a whole lot more.” – Amber talking to the Rachael Ray Show.
Soon, their relationship became strained, and they began considering divorce. Beau explained:
“I knew we had to figure something out. I love her with all my heart. And there wouldn’t be anything I wouldn’t do to make sure that we stay together. And so something had to give, something had to change.”
At first, they made drastic changes to their diet. It began with them cutting out all red meats and substituting them with healthier alternatives, like ground turkey.
Thanks to this change, they dropped 30 pounds over the course of a couple of months.
And they also started exercising hard!
By the time that Rachael Ray heard about them, Beau had lost 127 pounds, and Amber had lost a spectacular 185 pounds.
But there was still one major issue. Beau and Amber’s wardrobe was the same as when they were obese.
This meant that, naturally, all their clothes were super baggy. They were in desperate need of a makeover. But they had been through some financial hardships, as by now, they had two children. That was where Rachael Ray came in.
So the couple traveled to her studio in New York City, where the stylists and beauticians got to work.
After hours and hours, it was time to reveal their new looks.
The audience was amazed at their transformation. And so were people online.
A clip of the makeover has gained over 2 million views to date. It also has more than 14,000 likes and 700 comments. People have been saying things like this:
