After the tragic loss of her husband in 2015, Justine McCabe started eating excessively as a way of coping with the devastating loss resulting in her gaining a substantial amount of weight.

Her turning point was when she weighed over 139 kilos when she finally realised she needed to make more out of her life.

She documented her journey on Instagram, and has recently posted a time lapse video that shows what is really like to lose over 57 kilograms

"I turned my pain into energy. I let it move me and push me. I was angry and I was done. It was time to shove life back,"

Her journey has gone on to inspire many others in similar situations.

"I knew if I could survive living without my husband and mum then I should push my boundaries and limits to face all fears I had, to live a life they would be proud of," she told The Mirror.
