Hi, my name is Stacy… At 291 pounds, I was at my heaviest weight, clinically depressed, and feeling as if my life was spinning out of control. I knew that I was staring down the barrel of diabetes and high blood pressure. My self-esteem was at an all time low. I had tried so many “diets” over the years, experiencing some weight loss, only to gain it all back once I came “off the diet.” I had just had a picture taken for a local paper, and for the first time in an awful long while, I saw what other people saw when they looked at me. I was horrified; I knew that I had to do something. Fast-forward nine months… I have lost 118 pounds so far, in just 9 months! I have gone from a tight size 24-26 to a comfortable size 12. I have lost 40 inches from my neck, waist and hips. I have made many healthy lifestyle changes, ones that I know that I will be able to stick with for the rest of my life.
