- A Swedish woman who was once overweight has transformed herself into a fitness model and become an Instagram sensation after losing some 56 pounds.
Asa English, 26, says she became motivated to change her life when, coupled with being disgusted by a bikini picture of herself, her grandmother told her she had gained a lot of weight. She then decided to start eating right and hit the gym.
“I hated myself and thought I looked horrible,” she told The Sun. “I almost didn’t recognize myself and realized then I needed to change…Then as well, my grandma just said, ‘you have gained a lot of weight’ and when your grandma that always wants to feed you with loads of food, thinks you’ve got big – that hurts. I wasn’t happy that’s why I chose to start working out.”
She now has 429,000 followers on Instagram and keeping fit has become her life’s passion.
“I have no idea how much I ate and I never went to the gym whatsoever,” she said about her former self. “I stopped with alcohol and started to cook my food instead, so I always make sure I eat healthy. I go to the gym and now I am lighter and happy and healthy. I now work with my biggest passion, which is fitness.”
It’s obviosuly working wonders for her.

So my hair exstentions hasn't arrived and the company hasn't even answered my emails even though it should have been here yesterday the latest. Not happy. So I can't go and get my hair done on Saturday, have to wait till Thursday. But this is what I'm going for, my natural SWEDISH (apparently nobody knows I'm Swedish since I speak English all the time 🙈) hair. And yes my hair is actually that white and so are every hair on my body, brows and everything 😞
