Reality television personality Kim Kardashian has millions of fans. One of them, a 32-year-old English woman named Verity Sandford, has been inspired to lose over a hundred pounds in an effort to look more like her idol and live a healthier, happier lifestyle.

“I had the perfect Kim K shape, but its full potential was hiding behind rolls of flab,” Sandford told U.K. publication The Sun. She weighed 19st. 2lb. (268 pounds) when she decided to make the big change. Her size 20 body may have been shaped like an hourglass, but she admitted that it would have been impossible for her to fit into the bodycon dresses that Kardashian is fond of wearing.

It has now been 15 months since Sandford started her weight loss journey, and she has already lost close to half of her original body weight. After shedding 8st. 4lb (116 pounds), Sandford is now happily flaunting her curves, just like Kardashian.

On her Twitter account, she frequently shares before-and-after photos of her weight loss. She has been very vocal about sharing her progress. Her heartfelt tweets also show how hard she works on her weight. She often speaks about working out and proudly describes herself as a “Weightwatchers gold member.”

Meanwhile, Kardashian is on her own fitness journey. The reality star is currently pregnant with her second child with her husband Kanye West. After struggling with her weight and other health issues during her first pregnancy, Kardashian has vowed to stay healthier and in better shape this time around.

Apart from the extreme morning sickness that she had been experiencing, Kardashian appears to have been successful at keeping more serious complications at bay. She is now getting into her third trimester and appears to be happy and healthy. She has even been seen actively working out with her sisters as well as her brother, Rob Kardashian.
