How I Did It: At first, I lost all of my weight through Weight Watchers online (I never attended a meeting). Only after I lost 110 pounds did I start exercising by walking with a friend at our local track. We started with a mile, and every week added a quarter-mile. I eventually built up the strength to walk a 5K in 38 minutes.

How My Blog Helped: I started my blog after being on Weight Watchers for 6 months (I’d lost 50 pounds by then) to get a big monkey off my back: my scale number. All my life I’ve been afraid to tell anyone what I weighed. What if someone found out? What would they think of me? But it’s not like you can hide 300 pounds, so by “telling my secret,” I found freedom and support from a number of people who were on the same journey.

Top Tip: Never, ever start “dieting” until you’ve done the inside work first. You’ve got to answer these questions first: Why do I want to lose weight? Is it out of self-loathing or self-love? If the answer is self-loathing, a diet won’t work. If you don’t love the “you” that’s 200, 300 or 400 pounds, you can’t take care of yourself the way you need and deserve to as you’re losing weight. Learning to love yourself—or at least care enough to work toward loving yourself—is key to successful weight loss.
