Chandler mom Kelly Irish makes cover of Woman's World magazine

CHANDLER, AZ - If you find yourself at the checkout counter of the grocery store this weekend, you may spot a familiar face on one of the magazine covers.

A Chandler mom has landed in this week's issue of Woman's World for her extreme weight loss story.

Kelly Irish keeps her fridge packed with everything vegan.

"Got fruits, some tofu, basil, I have a brown rice loaf that's gluten free bread," Kelly said while giving ABC15 a tour of her refrigerator.

Kelly gave up all animal products less than two years ago while pregnant, and after having a baby, lost nearly 85 pounds.

A few weeks ago, a friend told Kelly Woman's World magazine was looking for a vegan weight loss story.

"I sent an email over, and the following morning they were like,'we picked you,'" said Kelly.

The next thing she knew, she was flying to Los Angeles for her two-page spread.

"They did a really great job, like I wish I could wake up and look like that every morning!"

Since her extreme weight loss, she's launched her own health program, coaching students on fitness and nutrition.

"It's really rewarding, to be able to help other people accomplish the same things that I've been able to do."

Kelly hopes the magazine will inspire others nationwide to live healthy.

"I'm sure it will reach a ton of people, and that's really what my main goal is."
