Megan’s Weight Loss Story!
When did you become unhappy with your weight?
I was on my way to Florida in January of this year and lots of pictures were taken. This one particular picture of me sitting on the airplane brought me to tears. Also, when I was down there, an old family friend commented on how “extremely healthy” I was. When I cam back home, I was devastated.
What made you decide to lose weight?
After being taunted cruelly by people, and seeing my pictures, I decided something HAS to change.
What were the most important changes you made to lose weight?
I gave up sugar sodas, pasta, potatoes, and foods loaded with calories. I also joined the college gym where I attend school. I gave up all fried foods as well, and moved in the veggies.
What was most challenging about losing weight?
Not wanting to exercise.
