WHEN DID YOU START DEVELOPING A WEIGHT PROBLEM?
During my pregnancies!

HOW DID YOUR WEIGHT AFFECT ANY ASPECT(S) OF YOUR LIFE?
ALL aspects, I was depressed, my marriage suffered, I didn’t like to go anywhere…

WHAT WAS THE “TURNING POINT” THAT GOT YOU STARTED ON YOUR WEIGHT LOSS JOURNEY?
When I took my 6 week postpartum “before” pictures. I was in school, I didn’t even recognize the person in the pictures

HOW DID YOU GET STARTED?
With at home workout DVDs, walking, and eating better, using a calorie counting app.

HOW LONG AFTER YOU STARTED DID YOU BEGIN TO SEE RESULTS OF YOUR WEIGHT LOSS EFFORTS?
Immediately!

WHAT WAS THE HARDEST PART?
NO TIME! With a 3 year old and a new baby it was hard to find time to workout.

DID YOU EVER WANT TO GIVE UP? WHAT KEPT YOU GOING?
What kept be going was imagining how I would feel when I reached my goal and could fit back into my old clothes!

DID YOU HIT ANY WEIGHT LOSS PLATEAUS? HOW DID YOU OVERCOME THEM?
Yes I have had a couple. I am breastfeeding so it makes it tough. I did a cleanse to break through one, and now I’m stuck again.

HOW LONG DID IT TAKE YOU TO LOSE MOST OF THE WEIGHT?
9 months

DID YOU HAVE ANY NON-SCALE VICTORIES?
Yes! Even though my weight is more than pre pregnancy, I’m so much more “fit” now! I love wearing shorts now and I used to hate my legs!

WHAT DOES YOUR DAILY DIET LOOK LIKE COMPARED TO WHEN YOU WERE HEAVIER?

HOW DOES YOUR PHYSICAL ACTIVITY COMPARE TO WHEN YOU WERE HEAVIER?
I was not active at all when I was pregnant.
