"In August 2014, I weighed 284lbs and today I weighed in at 171. The biggest problem I had with dieting was thinking about the diet food and everything I couldn't have... and obbessing over it. I have tried every diet and have had gastric bypass surgery several times. 2 kids and 2 marriages later I was turning 50 and said enough was enough. I stopped dieding and got food off my mind. Then my body told me what I needed and when I needed it. I listened and I never gave up."
