Amy Tapper Weight – loss
Amy says she’s been dealing with her weight since she was eight. In 2016, Amy was a target for cyber trolls and was bullied heavily for her weight. When fellow Googlebox star Viv Woerdenweber showed off her weight loss, cyber bullies decided to ride on this wave and made savage comments that Amy should take tips from her as regards weight loss. The family made no comment about this but Amy spoke up in one of the episodes of the show when she told her family that;
“Even though being big is unhealthy, just as beingtoo thin is unhealthy, it is portrayed as a bad thing. Fat is a way to describe someone, slim is a way to describe someone, pretty is a way to describe someone. But the word ‘fat’ is used as an insult.”
The reality star was finally jarred to reality when an embarrassing seatbelt incidence occured on an airplane (She had to ask for a seatbelt extension). She felt so bad but motivatedso she started her weight loss journey and has so far lost 3 stones in weight which has given her life a new turn. Amy recounted how confused she was when she received conflicting information from her Nutritionist and personal trainer, her Doctors had misdiagnosed her and made her believe she had slow metabolism but yet has managed to lose so much weight by simply dieting and following dance routines on YouTube while the nation was in and out of lockdown over the last year. She told the publication of her time on Gogglebox: “People genuinely thought I sat there watching TV all day — as if that was my life, as if I didn’t ever go to school. They thought that all I ever did was sit on the couch eating chocolate and sweets, or that I was just oblivious to the fact I was big and overweight.”
Amy however insists her weight loss is purely for herself and not to please anyone else.
