Kathleen’s Weight Loss Story!
When did you become unhappy with your weight?
I was originally 330 pounds and have been overweight my entire life. I was always unhappy with my weight.
What made you decide to lose weight?
My mom died in 2005 from her weight and diabetes and her wish was to have me live a healthy life and weight.
What were the most important changes you made to lose weight?
I committed to the program, made a life decision and came to the conclusion that food is not comfort or happiness.
What was most challenging about losing weight?
People treated me differently and I have struggled with how different I look as well.
How long did it take you to start to see results?
I still am shocked when I look and see the results but I truly noticed the weight loss about 5 months of surgery on Mothers Day at a friend’s house.
How long did it take for you to reach your current weight?
It took about 1 and 1/2 years to get to my weight and about 2 years to stabilize.
How long have you maintained your weight loss and how do you do it?
I have for a year now and still weigh myself daily.
