My kids, and not wanting to spend a fortune on ugly clothes anymore!

I stopped eating junk food all the time. I limit carbs, sugar, dairy and meat.

About a month.
How long did it take for you to reach your current weight?

Shopping and feeling energized.
How has your life changed now that you’ve lost weight?
