WHEN DID YOU START DEVELOPING A WEIGHT PROBLEM?

I’ve been overweight most of my life. I was a shy, chubby kid and went on my first diet when I was 13 years old. I’m an emotional eater and I suffer with anxiety and binge eating also.

HOW DID YOUR WEIGHT AFFECT ANY ASPECT(S) OF YOUR LIFE?
I’ve always been an introvert and hated going to social events or being around a group of people. I never felt like I fit it, I was very self-conscious about how I looked and I always felt so uncomfortable in my own skin.

WHAT WAS THE “TURNING POINT” THAT GOT YOU STARTED ON YOUR WEIGHT LOSS JOURNEY?
I was sick and tired of being sick and tired all the time. I couldn’t walk up a hill or a flight of stairs without getting out of breath. I was tired and irritable all the time and I wasn’t enjoying my life. I just wanted to be healthy for myself and for my daughter so that I could be around for her as long as possible. And that’s when things changed for me.

HOW DID YOU GET STARTED?
I started slow… I learned about clean eating and started working out in my living room because I absolutely hated going to the gym. I could hardly do a jumping jack at the time and didn’t even know what a burpee was. But I modified, never gave up and I got stronger everyday.

HOW LONG AFTER YOU STARTED DID YOU BEGIN TO SEE RESULTS OF YOUR WEIGHT LOSS EFFORTS?
I started to see results after only a few weeks and most importantly I stated to feel better which helped me to keep going.

WHAT WAS THE HARDEST PART?
When I was overweight I had high cholesterol and now my cholesterol is the lowest it’s ever been. I didn’t have a support system at home but now I have an accountability group full of supportive ladies from all over and they help to keep me on track.

DID YOU HAVE ANY NON-SCALE VICTORIES?
Non-scale victories are the best! When your clothes start getting too big, when your not embarrassed to wear a bikini on the beach for the first time in your life, when you go out to eat and choose a healthier option, when your daughter wants to work out with you. Focus on the small victories.

WHAT DOES YOUR DAILY DIET LOOK LIKE COMPARED TO WHEN YOU WERE HEAVIER?
When I was heavier I rarely ate veggies, I lived on Diet Coke, fast food and sweets.

HOW DOES YOUR PHYSICAL ACTIVITY COMPARE TO WHEN YOU WERE HEAVIER?
When I was heavier I hated working out and dreaded going to the gym because I felt so self-conscious there. So once I found an at-home workout that I enjoyed and could stick with then that’s when it worked for me. Now working out is fun and I workout almost every morning now.
