This story began in 2011, on a flight between Las Vegas and New York. A member of the flight crew told her that, given her heavy build, she would have to pay for not one but two seats on the plane.
This was a real shock for the model who weighed almost 30 stone. From then on, she decided to lose weight; the shame of the incident had given way to determination. Shestopped eating fast food and switched to fruits and vegetables, and started to exercise. In four years she lost more than 14 stone! You won’t believe what Rosie Mercado looks like today!
