Amber Denies Getting Weight Loss Surgery

However, not everyone's convinced that Amber Johnston lost weight naturally. Some think the 7 Little Johnstons celeb had a weight loss surgery, making it easier for her to drop the pounds.

But Amber refuted the accusations once more. The mother of five maintained that she never had any form of weight loss surgery. She clarified that the operation she had was that for her back injury.

"Let me clarify. I had spinal surgery, NOT bariatric," the 7 Little Johnstons star said on her Instagram Stories.

In the past, Amber Johnston had back surgery, which put her on steroids. That is when the "weight began to pack on." Now, she's eager to keep a healthier body, and she's doing an impressive job with it.

7 Little Johnstons: Amber Proud of Her Progress

To help with her slim down, Amber Johnston spends time working out. The 7 Little Johnstons mom also made changes to her diet. She cut back on sugars and carbs, sticking with healthier meals as much as possible.

Previously, the reality star revealed that she's on the Optavia plan. It is a weight loss or maintenance program that includes processed food called "fuelings" (bars, shakes, cookies, cereals, etc). It's unclear if Amber is still doing the said program to this day.

Meanwhile, Amber Johnston has her hands full with new tasks and responsibilities. The 7 Little Johnstons star got a teaching job, which she seems to enjoy.

She also returned to school in hopes of finishing her degree. The TLC celeb proudly declared that she's now a freshman in college at 42. She pointed out that age is just a number when it comes to education and that it's never too late to seek more knowledge.
