Competing for Brad Womack's attention on The Bachelor, Ashley Hebert turned to food to cope with the stress. Soon enough, she'd packed on 10 pounds.
For a petite, 5'2" girl, that's a fair amount.
Fortunately, Ashley changed her diet and exercise habits to lose the weight in time for her upcoming wedding to her dreamy mystery fiance (follow this link for The Bachelorette spoilers if you care to know who that is).
Those 10 pounds weren't the extent of Ashley's self-esteem battle.
Despite the misleading cover above (she was called those things as part of a comedy roast, after all), there's no question she has legitimate insecurities.
The way Bentley Williams messed with her, how could she not?
Fortunately, with the show behind her and a bright future ahead, things are looking up. Ashley Hebert is engaged, and mentally and physically, just so healthy!
“It’s a new, enlightened me. I’m happy. I’m in such a great place right now!” she says of her new body and her new life with the final rose winner.
The Bachelorette finale airs August 1.
