"I didn't have plastic surgery. I didn't have a personal trainer. It just shows an average person can do this too, without a celebrity's wallet." -Lori Sweeney, Costco Magazine
The title means that I am saying goodbye to that old person I used to be and am saying hello to a new person who is healthier and more confident! I used the name "Fatness" in the title because that was the name bullies called me the most. I was always overweight and as a result, was bullied and taunted by "friends," classmates, neighbors, and even certain family members. My self esteem was low and I was shy. I turned to my then only friend - food. Weight piled on throughout the years, and so did the taunts and snide remarks that followed me into adulthood. I later became obese and could not longer find my size in a store. Keeping up with my then three year old son was a chore and I had to sit out of activities. A car accident led to two knee surgeries and even more weight gain. It was time to take control of my life and I lost 125 pounds in three and a half years, my way. I have successfully kept it off for over five years and want to help others. I find success is more than simply eating right and exercising. It also includes building a positive spirit, working in a healthy lifestyle into the busiest of schedules, and overcoming healthy eating obstacles. My book Goodbye Fatness, Hello Gorgeous! shows how to work on the mind and the obstacles!
