Australian teenager, Josephine Desgrand, was sick of being fat-shamed. So she decided to turn her life around, and in the process achieved something remarkable.

The 17-year-old student dropped 132 pounds "naturally" through strict diet and light exercise, and says she feels like a totally different person.

"Before losing weight I would constantly eat bread and wraps, ate huge portions and went back for seconds and thirds all the time. So I cut sugar completely, cut the carbs and bread and now I eat far smaller portions. Three meals a day with no processed foods," she told the Daily Mail.
