A TEEN has managed to shed an incredible ten stone thanks to mints and Instagram posts from strangers.

Josephine Desgrand, 19, was addicted to chocolate and sweets and her sugar addiction saw her weight triple in only two years.

At her heaviest, she weighed more than 19st and had to wear a size XXL.

The aspiring author from Queensland, Oz, is now a slim size 8 - after totally transforming her diet and cutting out sugar completely.

Josephine said: I was using Instagram daily in a bid to try and lose weight, I loved looking at the inspiring pictures from strangers around the world.

"I have always been chubby, my family and I love food so there was always crisps and chocolate in the cupboards.

But one day I looked in the mirror and I had tripled in size, I tried to lose weight, but my sweet tooth would always get the better of me.

"I would eat anything sweet in between meals, such as cookies, chocolate and ice cream but now if I ever crave sweet things, I just chew on a mint and that does the trick."

She says that she wasn't comfortable wearing summery outfits and realised that she needed to change.

So, she started following weight loss journeys on Instagram and YouTube.

Seeing "normal people" transforming their bodies helps Josephine realise that she could do it too.

I could relate to their captions which helped motivate me, so I stopped snacking on junk and got tips from the accounts on what to replace it with," she explained.

I stopped thinking of it as a diet and seen it as a lifestyle change which it absolutely was, I am so much happier and healthier now.

If I ever thought about giving up, I would just look on Instagram and it would push me to keep going.

Having successfully maintained her dramatic weight loss for three years, Josephine's gone onto become something of an Instagram influencer herself.

Her account has over 130,000 followers and she uses the platform to post meal plans and share her weight loss journey with others looking for advice.

She adds: I cant believe the girl in the photos is me, I would never go back as my life has completely changed.

I live on the beach, yet I would avoid going or wear long sleeved dresses despite it being over 30 degrees.

Now I am comfortable in my own skin and love wearing short dresses or crop tops with leggings."

The turning point came for Josephine on her prom night.
