Before my transformation, I had always been active. When I was in high school I exercised in the morning to Charlene Prickett. That got me into loving to exercise. I either watched exercise shows on TV or went to the gym. Along with exercise, I tried to eat right. It was in the 80s so we were into the thinking that your diet should comprise of very little fat. Consequently, people got fat.

I actually didn’t gain weight until I started working at a job where there was always junk food. My daughter was eight years old at the time. The food was so addicting and made me depressed. I did not realize at the time the effects the wrong kind of food was having on my body and my brain.

Since I never really gained weight before and I was very active, I thought I could eat anything and exercising would burn the calories. Later on, circumstances in my life prevented me from eating right. I kept gaining weight. This lasted for about seven years.

My Transformation

Two years ago I started running. I was overweight and very active. I could not understand why I could not lose weight. Besides running I went to the gym five days a week.

During training runs with my running group on Saturdays, I was always with the last group (the slowest group). In the beginning, I was afraid I would not be able to even stay up with them. Over several months, I started to change my eating habits.

Finally, I was starting to lose weight. As the pounds came off, I began to get faster at running also. I guess part of it is I didn’t have as much weight to carry, so I could go faster. Three months later I was down to my normal weight and was in great shape. I lost 60 pounds.

Everyone around me saw my transformation and was amazed by it. I still get comments from people who remembered me before I lost the weight.
