Amber Portwood’s weight loss shows that the Teen Mom OG star can do anything she sets her mind to.
Portwood, who rose to fame on MTV’s 16 and Pregnant, followed by Teen Mom, and now Teen Mom OG, has had a troubling past. Not only did she become involved in domestic violence relationship with her former fiance Gary Shirley, who she shares her six-year-old daughter Leah with, she also landed herself in prison, ultimately having her daughter taken away from her.
However, despite her past, Amber has been trying her best to move on with her life, and not long after being released from prison, met her new fiance Matthew Baier, who also struggled with addictions.
Now, the 25-year-old reality star is planning her dream wedding, and shedding the pounds to prepare for it. On Monday, August 10, Amber shared a photo with her fans on Twitter of her new slim figure.
“36 lbs down and 15 more to go…almost at my goal,” she tweeted.

Portwood added that it had not been an easy process, and admitted that her transformation took nearly four months because she “fell off for a couple weeks.” However, she toughed it out, and now is seeing tremendous progress, even though she claims she still has 15 more pounds to go to be at her ideal weight. So, how did she do it? Amber responded to several of her follower’s comments, explaining that she “cut out bad carbs like sugar and cut down on pasta to start..also try to not eat trans fats.”

According to a previous report by the Inquisitr, Amber opened up in June about her upcoming wedding, noting that she wanted all of her Teen Mom costars to serve as her bridesmaids.
“My dream wedding, I know for sure, my cousin Krystal would be the maid of honor at the wedding because she’s the closest person to me. She’s like my best friend,” she said at the time. “And of course I want all the Teen Moms, all the girls, I want them to be my bridesmaids. I mean, they have to be a part of it.”
In a separate interview, Amber said she is crazy in love with Matthew, and credits him with helping her finally be able to move past her on-again, off-again relationship with Shirley.
“I think [Matt] helped me get completely over him. It was months before that though that I actually made the decision to not want to have the relationship with Gary anymore,” she said. “It was just really hard to move forward with somebody and trust another man and actually feel like I can love another person. I never thought I’d find somebody that I loved more than Gary, and obviously I was wrong. I love this man more than anything.”
