Weight-loss Success

My name is Angela Rowan and I am 33 years old.  I have struggled with my weight since I was about 18 years old.  I would try fad diet after fad diet with no success.  Once I managed to lose about 30 pounds just to gain it all back plus another 20 within the following year.  In 2006, I topped out around 220.  I am not sure exactly what happened, but it just clicked.  I completely changed the way I thought about food.  I began to eat healthy.  I actually enjoyed making healthy choices when eating out.  Too scared to go to the gym, I started exercising at home.  The biggest thing I had to do was cut my soda intake.  I used to drink nothing but sodas and now, I drink nothing but water.  I am currently down to 140 pounds.  I have lost a total of 80 pounds in the past 2 years.  I can honestly say that for once in my life, I love the way I look and I feel so much better.  I have so much more energy now.  Thinking back on it now, it took me making a true lifestyle change rather than just being “on a diet”.

Today, January 16th 2010, I have lossed a total of 92 pounds and now weigh 128.
