Meredith Prince always struggled with her appearance. The 24-year-old teacher from Rochester, NY, was adopted as a child.

The fact that she wasn’t a waif like the other women in her family made her self-conscious.

“I always knew I was adopted,” she said. “They’re small and I’m not at all. I just never felt like I fit into my own [adoptive] family.”

Prince spent years yo-yo dieting and at her biggest weighed over 400 pounds. She knew she had to make a change.

After reaching out to Chris Powell, host of Extreme Weight Loss, she made her way to his weight-loss boot camp. Powell told Prince to lose 80 pounds in three months with just diet and exercise.

Prince lost 84 pounds. Then she tattooed her goal weight of 155 pounds onto her stomach. For the next year she devoted her time to healthy diet and exercise.

When she weighed herself, she weighed exactly 155 pounds. Her family was stunned.

“At the heaviest, I was over 400 pounds,” Prince said today on Good Morning America. “And here we are today at 155 pounds. It’s been such a journey.”

Prince’s hard work and dedication to herself is an inspiration to us all. See her stunning transformation below.
