WHEN DID YOU START DEVELOPING A WEIGHT PROBLEM?

I’ve always had a weight problem.

HOW DID YOUR WEIGHT AFFECT ANY ASPECT(S) OF YOUR LIFE?
My weight affected every area of my life. Mostly my desire to start a family. I developed PCOS which effects your ability to have children. I tried for 3 years. Then after finally getting pregnant I was told I couldn’t have the birth I wanted because of my weight.

After 3 months I began to physically see a change.

WHAT WAS THE HARDEST PART?
I had to find time to get to the gym. I had a full time job, a new baby, a home to take care of as well as other things.

I wanted to give up when I wouldn’t see a change in the scale. I reminded my self progress takes time and if I stopped now I would very soon be back to where I was.

Right when I was about to lose 100lbs I hit a major plateau I didn’t lose a pound for weeks. Then I took a break. Took a few days off the gym and had a few cheat meals. Then went right back to it. Immediately I saw results.

It took me about a year.
