Alyssa Lusk is a 27-year-old American teacher living in Hattiesburg, Mississippi. A year after meeting her husband Carter Lusk, Alyssa gained weight and reached over 14 stone because of poor eating habits she and her partner had adopted. Alyssa told The Daily Mail:I was eating junk food all the time and not doing enough sports.Depressed by this weight gain, Alyssa decided to improve her lifestyle. Instead of her usual two litres of water, she started drinking four litres of water daily, following a doctor's recommendation.She also monitored her diet and returned to sports, going to the gym six times a week. Alyssa quickly lost weight. After losing ten pounds, Carter asked for her hand in marriage and Alyssa agreed.Marriage has become a new motivation to redouble her efforts. She lost an extra 11lb before her ceremony where she appeared transformed and radiant. She had to resist the temptation to radically change her lifestyle, but Alyssa is now completely satisfied.
