Librarian loses 3.5 stone thanks to Outlander star


AN AMERICAN librarian has lost three and a half stone in weight – all thanks to Sam Heughan.

Since the start of last year Amber, from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, has lost 50lbs (22.6kgs) after taking on the hunky actor’s My Peak challenge.

Those taking part choose their own ‘peak’ – ranging from skills and hobbies to health and fitness regimes – to work towards over the year.

Amber managed to lose a staggering amount of weight, and shared her amazing transformation online.

And it has caught the attention of Heughan himself, who couldn’t contain his surprise at the ‘before and after’ pictures.

The mum shared her remarkable weight loss online

Amber, who has a son, shared the pictures on Wednesday night with the caption “Thank you @SamHeughan for @MyPeakChallenge. I have lost 50lbs since #PeakStreak started.”

The first snap shows a curvy Amber wearing a green shirt and shorts, posing for a picture with her son.

The second photograph is a world of difference – with a much slimmer Amber wearing a sports kit and grinning widely for a selfie.

It seems that the pictures caught the eye of Heughan, who commented “Wow” with two ‘thumbs up’ emojis.

The transformation has also received almost 1,000 ‘likes’ on Twitter after being shared by the Outlander star.

Dozens of impressed followers commented on the pictures, praising Amber for her determination.

Sharon Erlik wrote: “That is incredible – congratulations!”

Cynthia Franzen said: “You look terrific! Good job.”

Another commented: “Wow. I don’t know you but I want to say you look amazing. And so very happy.”

The My Peak challenge was initially launched in January 2015 and encouraged people to get fit in the name of charity.

Heughan, who plays Highland warrior Jamie Fraser in the hit TV drama, teamed up with Fight Camp Glasgow in aid of Leukaemia and Lymphoma research.

Their fully scalable program can be tailored to suit all ages and abilities and aims to encourage individuals from all walks of life to reach peak fitness, achieve personal goals and feel great.

Each member receives online support and motivation, and also has access to meal plans.
