Stephanie's Weight Loss Story!
When did you become unhappy with your weight?
After I gave birth to my daughter.
What made you decide to lose weight?
When I weighed myself at my moms on January 12th 2008 and it
read 209lbs. I honestly thought to myself that her scale was way
off, I didn't really realize that I gained so much weight. I thought
that I was about 185lbs or so. Well, I stepped on many different
scales and realized that they all read the same 209. That is when
I decided to make a life changing decision to not only feel good
about myself and how I look but for my health and my family. I
went on a "diet" LOW calorie for about 2 weeks and I
lost 10 lbs. Until, I really looked into Weight Watchers and I
forced myself to join and I have since lost 26lbs! I am amazed
and so proud of how dedicated I have been, how committed I am
and how GREAT I feel. It's the best thing when you see someone
you haven't spoke to in a while and they notice how good you look
or when I notice when guys are "checking me out" (although
I'm married, it's still feels great to know that I'm eye candy).
I am going to keep this up in hopes to get to my goal of 135 to
What were the most important changes you made to lose weight?
Being honest; being determined; committed and devoted.
What was most challenging about losing weight?
Well I STILL battle the challenge at times because I'm still
losing weight but I would say snacking. It's hard when you think
"it's just 2 points" but it may be 2 more points than
you are allowed for the day.
How long did it take you to start to see results?
I started dieting on January 15th of this year. I joined Weight
Watchers January 29th and I have since then lost 36lbs.
How long did it take for you to reach your current weight?
3 1/2 months
How long have you maintained your weight loss and how do you do
I'm still in the process.
How has your life changed now that you've lost weight?
Dramatically! I'm a happier person all around, I've gained SO
much confidence and my intimate life with my husband has greatly
improved due to my confidence and feeling comfortable in my body.
