How would you describe your results (pounds, inches, dress/pants size)?

I lost 40lbs, my body fat went from 29% to 19%, and I dropped 3 dress sizes.

When did you become unhappy with your weight (were you overweight as a child or did you gain weight as an adult?)

I’m only 4’11,” and I’ve always been skinny. After four kids, my activity level was minimal and I gained a lot of weight. And it didn’t help coming from a family where eating is one big enjoyment.

What was the most challenging thing you had to deal with during your weight loss journey?

There’s probably two answers to this. First, trying to convince the family to cook and eat healthier meals was difficult. Second, it was hard initially making health and fitness part of my everyday life.
