Life in Hervey Bay, Queensland, Australia, wasn’t the beachside paradise it appeared to be – at least, not for 17-year-old Josie Desgrand. As she told news.com.au, “I have an amazing family and we’ve had some wonderful experiences, but I was so unhappy with my weight.”

At her heaviest, the 17-year-old had reached just over 264 pounds. Desgrand later attributed her gains to the manner in which she ate, rather than the quality of the food she chose. On top of that, she admitted that she wasn’t very active.
