It all started about seven years ago when I was preparing for my wedding. I wanted to lose about 15 pounds to look fabulous in my wedding dress so I started on Weight Watchers. I followed the diet perfectly but I ate very little "whole" foods; I lived off of diet sodas and 100 calorie packs. I lost the weight I wanted but as soon as the wedding day was over... I gained it all back, plus another 10 pounds in the years following my wedding. OOOPS!
In 2009, I delivered a beautiful 8 lb. 3 oz. baby girl. I was overjoyed but was left with a body that I did not recognize. I went through a lot of frustration and embarrassment. I started back on Weight Watchers and after about a year and a half, I lost all of my baby weight plus an extra 20 lbs.
