A gorgeous fitness model has shared her amazing transformation from couch potato.
Åsa English, 26, from Sheffield reached 11st following an unhealthy diet of processed meals and booze.
After a home truth from her grandmother and the shock of an unflattering bikini photo, Asa ditched her junk food diet and picked up a gym membership.
The blond bombshell lost 4st and gained a huge fanbase on Instagram @jellydevote of over 400,000 followers ogling her washboard abs and lean glutes.
Asa, originally from Vaxjo Sweden said: “I saw a photo of myself in a bikini and that triggered me to start transforming my body.
“I hated myself and thought I looked horrible.
“I almost didn’t recognise myself and realised then I needed to change. I felt like the outside didn’t match my inside.
“Then as well, my grandma just said, ‘you have gained a lot of weight’ and when your grandma that always wants to feed you with loads of food, thinks you’ve got big – that hurts.
“I wasn’t happy that’s why I chose to start working out.”
Asa’s battle with the bulge began in her early twenties.
She said: “When I was young, I was always considered “normal” not big, not small just normal.
“But all of the sudden when I hit my twenties I started to put on lots of weight.
“I was eating and drinking a lot of alcohol and soda and a lot of processed food. I would never cook and would only get ready meals or fast food.
“I have no idea how much I ate and I never went to the gym what so ever.
“I ended up weighing in about 70kgs and was very unhealthy. I had an unhealthy life in general.”
Fed up with feeling low, Asa decided to change her life and now she runs a blog to help others change theirs.
She said: “I stopped with alcohol and started to cook my food instead, so I always made sure I ate healthy.
“I went to the gym and now I am lighter and happy and healthy.”
She added: “I now work with my biggest passion, which is fitness.
“I get to inspire and help others to be the best version of them self. And thanks to this job I can travel the world and I have experienced and grown so much from this experience.”
