On her blog, Rachel explained that she finally decided to lose weight when she found herself ‘depressed’ and ‘out of breath doing what should have been simple tasks’.

And while she hasn’t been ashamed to show off the sagging skin left behind by her weight loss, on March 23rd she underwent an extended tummy tuck with muscle repair ‘for a variety of reasons’.
‘These include rapid weight gain during my first pregnancy after battling with an eating disorder, having huge babies, and ultimately from losing 90 pounds,’ she wrote on a post showing off the results of her surgery.
She also had a breast augmentation and periareolar lift to restore the volume she lose post weight loss and breastfeeding.
