A young mother-of-six who weighed 140 kilos has shed half her body size in an astonishing body transformation.

Krechelle Carter, from Adelaide, has been regularly documenting her weight loss on social media where she detailed her exact fitness and meal plans.

The 30-year-old - who was diagnosed with a chronic illness - said her weight escalated after months of bed rest, multiple surgeries, steroids and medications. 

But determined to get on top of her weight once and for all, she lost 70 kilos in just 12 months after undergoing a lifestyle overhaul.

'It has been a year (about 70kg gone but look at that face, she's happy). A year since I decided I would try to break free of all the tablets and operations and diseases,' Krechelle, who blogs under Eight At Home, wrote on Instagram. 

'I remember having a moment where I thought what's the worst that happens if you start today? Your one day into forever. Is that such a bad thing?
