The 7 Little Johnstons reality star went ahead with getting spinal surgery. Amber Johnston said that she was in a mental state after surgery that she needed to “nurse” her back. So, she didn’t do much physical activity. She said that is when the pounds continued to pack on. According to Amber, the weight found ways to stick to her everywhere. Seeing herself gain a lot of weight made her fearful. But, she knew she had to make a change.
