Well that's one way to do it, we suppose!
Apparently it isn't just the fact that Amber Portwood probably doesn't have access to all kinds of unhealthy food — but more so an active change.
Her mom, Tonya, has this to say:
‘My first visit with Amber was emotional and filled with lots of hugs and tears, but she looks great and she’s already done a complete 180 since being locked up.’
‘She’s lost a lot of weight by staying active and even though the guards and inmates try to pick fights Amber is staying out of trouble and spending time each day writing a book about her life. Now instead of fighting and taking drugs Amber is heavily into the jail choir and practices every day with them. She is loving it and hopes one day Leah will come and watch her perform.’
"Loving it" doesn't seem like something anyone would say about prison!
Everybody loves a redemption story, though — and we hope this changes her for the good!
We know she has it in her!
