Click through the photos to see Leah’s mama’s weight loss transformation through the years, concluding with the insanely svelte, totally unrecognizable bod she showed off in her first full-body selfie since her split from Matt Baier.

The bride-to-be struggled with her weight again in 2016, when she was diagnosed with borderline personality disorder, in addition to her previous diagnoses of bipolar disorder and anxiety. 

Amber’s new combination of meds, which now included a cravings-causing mood stabilizer, led to her gaining back 30 of the 40 pounds she shed.

She underwent a “mommy makeover” in October to tighten up her curves and lift her breasts, but also stuck to a more rigorous diet and exercise routine to get back in shape.
