In an exclusive post for Women's Health magazine, Amber revealed heartbreaking details and how Matt Baier helped.

She explained that following her 40 pound weight loss back in 2015, she was diagnosed with borderline personality disorder by her doctor after months of feeling "depressed." She wrote, "When I got the diagnosis, I wanted to keep it a secret. While everyone knew about my other diagnoses—I’ve had anxiety since I was a kid, for as long as I can remember—I guess it was tragic to think I had another mental disorder. "

After being put on new medications for her treatment she explained why she gained 30 pounds back. She wrote, "I remember taking my new meds the first month after my borderline personality disorder diagnosis, I was craving food like I was pregnant — it was insane. I was looking at Matt at midnight saying, "I really want Taco Bell right now." You also get very tired, and it can be hard to find the motivation to go to the gym."

Fast forward a few months later, Amber is back on track to finding the perfect balance. "I’m still aiming to lose more weight because I just want to be healthy — not super skinny. I’m hoping that in the next five months I’ll reach my goal weight and finally feel healthy and happy with myself," Amber wrote.
