"I've always had problems with my weight. I would start a new diet, lose weight then gain it all back. It was impossible for me to maintain what I lost. Even though in my mind I thought I wanted to lose weight emotionally and physically, I wasn't really ready to lose the weight. Until one day it just clicked. I cracked down on what I ate. I stuck to a low calorie diet. I checked labels for EVERYTHING. Carbs, fat, calories you know it, I checked it. I drank half my weight in water everyday and I worked out 5-7 days a week to Richard Simmons (people always laughed at this but, it works - he is amazing ) As I lost more and more weight, I started eating different things. I started adding pizza in my diet and a couple of nights a week, would do turkey spaghetti so my body wouldn't get used to the same foods. It was definetly the hardest thing I have ever done but, it was so worth it and, now after fighting so hard to be happy, I will never let myself go back to what I used to be like."


A new lifestyle
What is the deciding factor that made you decide to change your lifestyle?
When I had to struggle to chase after my 2-year-old daughter to play. I couldn't run outside with her. Any kind of activity would leave me winded and I didn't want her to see me like that. I was only 25 years old and very obese and unhealthy. I am only 5'0 tall and was 210lbs. So I was tired of being heavy and I put my foot down and went to my Dr. I started on my 25th birthday (which was crazy of me because of dinner and cake) which I even turned down that night. I shocked myself and everyone else. I was tired of saying " I'll start tomorrow" when in reality, if you're serious you're serious, there is no tomorrow - it needs to happen today.
What was the most difficult adjustment to your new lifestyle?
I would say still buying the snacks and dinners for my husband and daughter and not snacking on them myself. I never even like their taste in junk foods. I am not really a chocolate person but would just eat to eat.
What is the most rewarding part of your new lifestyle?
Being able to run after my daughter and play with her. We go for walks, or just doing normal activites and I don't get out of breath. The first time I realized how much healthier I was, was when we were going to the mall and as always, parking is horrible. I used to always be out of breath before getting into the mall and would have to slow down to catch my breath, without anyone noticing, so I wouldn't be embarrassed. Well not that time, I was walking at a normal pace and when we got to the doors and I realized I was fine, I cried and couldn't stop. Little things like that just amaze me and make me realize my hard work is paying off.
Do you have any words of advice for the community?
NEVER give up! People are going to try and make you fail, say you can't do it. You can do ANYTHING you put your mind to.. You are the only one that can do this for you. Don't let anyone get in your way. It's a long journey and no one can tell you it's going to be easy but, once you are there, you will realize it was all worth it.
