After being fat-shamed on a flight, this woman dropped 71 lbs.

Kayla Martin was well aware of her weight when she arrived at Auckland, New Zealand airport wearing a puffy black jacket. The mom-of-three had become accustomed to hiding her insecurities beneath oversized pieces of clothes.

It wasn’t until boarding her Australia-bound flight that a flight attendant’s hurtful comments would change the course of her life.

Martin took to Instagram to share the words that ultimately triggered a dramatic transformation.

After struggling to reach her seatbelt around her waist, “the airline hostess found it appropriate to announce in the middle of a quiet plane that due to my size, I would need to use the seat belt extension that moms traveling [with] babies needed and maybe next time I should consider booking two seats to accommodate for my size to ensure a more ‘comfortable’ flight for myself and other passengers,” she wrote.

While the remark was incredibly hurtful, Martin found a way to turn the flight attendant’s sting into a 71 lb weight-loss triumph.
