Honestly, when I came in, I don’t remember exactly how much I weighed. Probably thirty pounds more than I wanted to weigh. The main reason was that I had all these clothes in my closet that I wanted to fit into and I just did not feel healthy. I did not feel like I could just go out and walk a mile if I wanted to. More than anything, I was just uncomfortable.
Turning 50 I started to get the “middle age spread,” which I was not enjoying, especially with my clothes not fitting well. So starting the program was just about getting comfortable in my clothes and my body.
