Long time, no post. Let’s jump right into this one. Wow. Numerous media outlets are doing stories about Amber Portwood of MTV’s Teen Mom losing 65 pounds. As I mentioned in a previous post, Amber had claimed she lost weight by doing Krav Maga. I did a little research and this is a legitimate way to help loose a lot of weight. However, there are now people speculating that Amber lost all the weight through prescription drugs, or that she may have an eating disorder. Let’s take a look at what Amber looks like now.
That picture was taken at the Teen Mom 2 Reunion. Amber is 5'4" and now weighs 118 pounds. I will be completely honest and say that I didn’t even recognize her. For one, her hair is a couple shades lighter. She also has eased up on the amount of black eyeliner. She is a lot thinner. The thinnest I’ve ever seen her. Now, I don’t know Amber personally, so I have no clue what she looked like before having Leah, but I do think she has lost a lot of weight in what seems like a short period of time. I really hope that she is doing it the right way. I know that being on TV and in the spotlight can have a negative effect on the way a girl feels about her body. People can be very mean. Girls end up feeling like the only way to make the mean words stop is to altar their body. Just look at what Heidi Montag has done to herself. It should be interesting to see Amber’s weight loss transformation play out during the rest of the season of Teen Mom.
