Married at first sight Alycia Galbraith from Australia revealed her incredible weight loss of FIVE stones in breathtaking before and after shots.
The star first rose to fame on the fifth season of the popular reality show, where she dated Mathew Lockett, in January 2018.

34-year-old plumber Mat and the 31-year-old beauty looked like they should be together when they first closed their eyes at the beginning of the show.
But things got worse and they dissolved before the final decision was made.
Although Alycia failed to find a husband during her time on the program, she has triumphed in other parts of her life.
She managed to lose a whopping 30 kg after a doctor told her she was obese in her early twenties.

The star took to Instagram a month after her series aired to share her transformation with the world – despite originally wanting to keep it a secret.
She told her 49.6k followers: “SUPER nervous to post this, but let’s go … (please be nice!) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“When the producers at Married at First Sight found out about my weight loss, I was asked if I had photos of myself in my backstory as this is an important part of my life.
“I said no to sharing photos at first because it’s difficult to look at yourself, let alone others judge me!”

Alycia admitted she wasn’t a happy person when she was tallest and turned to eating to deal with her bad relationship, the battle against endometriosis, and toxic friendships.
She continued, “The only reason I ended up saying yes to share my story is because I was promised it would help people and I really hope it is possible.”
“People ask me how I managed to change the way I look and I firmly believe that a positive mind attracts wonderful things – this is where my transformation began.
“I was mentally determined to become a healthy person who only followed for myself and my body.

“I got rid of everything toxic in my life, changed my diet and lost the first 12 kg within 3 months.
“Over time, I’ve lost more than 30 kg and now I feel better than ever!”
Her weight loss journey inspired her to publish her own ebook – Transformation by Alycia Galbraith – to help others change their lives for the better.
After being diagnosed as obese in her early twenties, she was later told that she had body dysmorphic disorder.

The beauty has managed to turn her life around after “a lot of hard work and soul searching” and has never looked back.
In July 2019, she shared another set of before and after pictures and shared how she felt inside before losing weight.
She explained that she always pretended to be happy and put on a front to hide what was going on inside.
She told fans, “The same girl lost enough weight to move from obesity to a healthy weight range. It took the courage to do a swimsuit shoot for a popular magazine, bared her soul and shared her story on national television!”

“She’s done things she wasn’t sure could be and became the woman on the right, a woman who loves and has a lot of respect for herself.”
In addition to developing as a person, the star provides personal confidante services for people who have problems and need someone to talk to.
Since breaking up with Mat, Alycia has kept her love life extremely close to her chest.
While Mat reportedly moved on with co-star Charlene Perera, Alycia opened their new relationship in February 2020.

She said to her followers: “This is a very special year, it’s so nice to have my own Valentine’s Day … That’s right, I’m in a relationship. And I moved to Melbourne to meet this sweet man of mine to live.”
But due to the stress of Covid-19, it wasn’t long between the two and she announced their separation three months later.
“It’s a broken heart to share with you everything that my whirlwind romance has now ended,” wrote Alycia in a long Instagram post about their breakup.
