Up until the age of about 19, I was very overweight (if not obese) and struggled to do anything about it. I felt very bad about myself and the bigger I got, the worse I felt about myself. There came a point where I felt “enough is enough” and I joined a weight loss club to do something about it. Over the course of 2 years, I lost almost half my body weight and I’m now at my goal weight! Losing weight was my unique gift and I was so grateful for it. To try and use my unique gift for good, I now talk at weight loss centers and clubs all over to encourage others to lose weight and be kind to themselves. It’s not about your appearance, it’s how you feel inside: this is what I always try to tell the audience and I hope that it has worked!
