"I never thought I could ever lose this much weight. I have always had a weight problem and being short doesn't help. In 2001, I had lost about 30 lbs and had felt better than I had ever felt before. That is the year that I met my husband. In 2002 we got married. It had been my dream to get married and have a family but after trying for 4 years what seemed to be a lot of things including clomid, I had become down on myself. Then one day in 2005 I found out the reason I had been gaining weight was because I was pregnant. I had my baby in December 2006. I gained 40 lbs and in December 2008 I still had not lost the weight. I had given phentermine a try before but it gave me headaches and didn't seem to work but this time I vowed to myself that I would not stop taking it and would work-out while taking it. So on 12-27-08, I hit the gym with my new membership and the treadmill. I also started a low carb diet. It was hard! I weighed myself at least once a week and kept a log of my weight weekly. I took at least one picture a month to track my progress of how I looked and posted it to my facebook. During this time I found myself again. I had been down in the dumps, didn't want to go out anymore, didn't feel right in my own skin. I was in a marriage in which I was unhappy, and through my workouts and music I was able to think about things. I set a goal of losing 2 lbs a week and trying to lose 8 to 10 lbs a month. In the end, I have lost 54 pounds!!!"


A new lifestyle
What is the deciding factor that made you decide to change your lifestyle?
The deciding factor was that I hated how my clothes started to feel on me. While at work, someone asked me when my baby was due, and I remember how I felt at that moment! I wanted to cry. I had a 2 year old and I had not made an effort to lose the weight. I was so busy with work and raising a newborn, which felt like by myself since my husband worked a night shift, that I forgot to take care of me.
What was the most difficult adjustment to your new lifestyle?
The most difficult part of all this was being away from my daughter and husband. As I became healthier and smaller, I grew further away from my marriage. It was also reminding myself that I had a goal that I had set and I wanted to achieve something for "ME".
What is the most rewarding part of your new lifestyle?
The most rewarding part was feeling like a new woman! Turning 35 and able to reward myself with a trip to Las Vegas and lying out by the pool in a bikini. To go from wearing a size 14/16 to a size 2/4! To wear skinny jeans and not feel fat anymore! To wear cute little shirts in the summer that I had not been able to before. I have never been more proud of myself. Through all the sweat and tears, I have done it all by myself. I stuck to exercise, phentermine and a low carb diet and it worked.
Do you have any words of advice for the community?
Believe in yourself! Set a goal and don't look back. Log your weight weekly and don't rely on a workout buddy. You have to carry your own weight. Don't let someone else bring you down, believe me, you can do it by yourself. When you want to give up, think of the end result! For me it was me imagining myself in those short shorts or that cute sundress. Feeling sexy again.
