How I Did It

My Name is Tatyana Hristova. I am 34 years old. I’m originally fromBulgaria, a small country inEastern Europe. I am currently living inSalt Lake City,Utah.

I started dreaming about coming toAmericaafter seeing many movies about the life here and I wanted to have a little part of the “American dream” for myself. I came to theUnited Statesas an ESL student, even though English is my third language (Bulgarian and Russian are the other two).

To me the most important part of the American dream is that everyone has the opportunity to receive a quality education. To do this, I needed money and a lot of hard work.

When I moved toUtahI met people that were also fromBulgariawhom I thought were friends, but they were the wrong kind of friends. They were not helping me grow; instead they were bringing me down. I become home sick and overwhelmed by everything in my life.

Just as many other people do when I had problems I tried to escape them by eating a lot food. I found that here inAmericathere are a lot of foods from all over the word and I started to succumb to all the new temptations. I began to gain a lot of weight and before I knew it I was a 200 pound woman, but my biggest concern was my heart.

I was born with a cosmetic heart defect called WPW, which was first diagnosed by doctors when I lived inSt. Petersburg,Russia. Almost every night I would wake up with heart spasms so my pain became a double heartache, both mental and physical.

My heart was literally in physical pain with spasms and I was in mental anguish with heartache every time I saw myself in the mirror. The turning point came for me when my mother said that I looked like a pig.

Supplements

The only supplement I am taking is Glutamine. I am very careful because of my WPW syndrome.
